Ok. I'm pretty close to beating the game now and i just realized, when you go to change from the wolf it says transform into "human". I may have missed something, but i could've sworn Link was an elf. So if someone could please explain that. Thanks
Well, technically, he's Hylian, not human; but it's generally accepted that the Hylians are partial analogues (at least in design, if not culture or origin) to elves, which don't exist in the LoZ universe. So it's sort of neither. However, "human" is used for convenience there. --- "Some people play tennis. I erode the human soul." -Tycho, Penny Arcade therushisonsummer2004
Human makes the most sense. Why the hell would it say "Transform into Hylian"? That just seems ridiculous. It's not like he looks any different from humans, other than the ears. --- This is a scratch-and-sniff sig. Go ahead, try it! "Coleby your sig made me break my monitor" ~ kill3r619
Hylians are referred to as humans quite bit in Zelda games, so Link is indeed human. --- "Shrimpburgers are the true Messiahs; tacos and marmalade are just subgames." - KingOfHyrule Now Playing: Nostalgia
Hylians are a kind of human, it's more of a race if anything, similar to the Gerudo. Or for a real-world example, Hylians would be like, I dunno... Scandinavians, while Gerudo would be Egyptian. Both humans, but some minor differences. --- ~~~TakerVersion1~~~ Trolling is a art.
I guess. We were just having this discussion a while back in another topic, come to think of it - Link's gotta have (fertile) descendants, and if lifeforms A and B can mate and produce offspring which can then itself mate, A and B must be of the same species. So, okay, putting the whole vague "Hylians have magic blood" thing aside, we'll take it as a separate race instead. --- "Some people play tennis.
