LoZ - Child Link by StargazerSammie LoZ - Child Link by StargazerSammie
Another redesign, this one of Link. It draws inspiration from his TP counterpart.

This child design of Link is 10 years old, two years older than Zelda. At this age, Link is pretty mischievous though he's not the same boy he used to be. His primary weapon is a slingshot since he tends to break his wooden sword often. His slingshot ammo is deku seeds, small hard seeds that create a flash on impact, a Sheikah speciality.

.: Personal History :.

When young Link was born, a symbol appeared on the back of his hand, a mark that his father recognized and hid. He drilled it into his son that the symbol was to be kept secret, no one could ever know of it.

The symbol marked Link as a hero, one in a long line of chosen knights, stemming back to the days of the Goddess Hylia. However, news eventually got out of someone named Link who bore the mark of the Hero. This news was brought to the Gerudo desert by one of the guards who passed it on until it made its way to Ganondorf, their king. He knew that his plans would fail if the Hero was still around when it came time to put them into action and so he himself visited Link's Father, who bore the same name as his son. He convinced Ganondorf that he was indeed the Hero reborn and so he was killed, but not after a long and hard fight.

Little Link witnessed this battle and his father's death and it instilled in him a hatred for Ganondorf and a desire to avenge his father. However after his father's death, his mother's health began to decline, making her easily susceptible to illness. Under the guise of it being for her health, she moved them to Kakariko village, a hidden village of Sheikah, in hopes that Ganondorf wouldn't discover he had killed the wrong Link and it was here that Link met Zelda.

And then everything went out of control from there.

:giggle: Thanks

Yeah, I figured if he had any kind of weapon that wasn't his sword, it'd be the slingshot. He's got great aim with that thing and those little nuts hurt!

Welcome! <3
I totally agree! And I'm sure he's a little terror with it. XD

He definitely doesn't use to to startle the neighbor's cat that likes to attack him. Nope, definitely not :giggle:
