The Legend of Zelda: A New Line
Deities of Hyrule
Gods and Goddesses fill the mythos and even the world with their presence. The following deities are eligible for worship, veneration or being reviled in foul cults. Though the TLoZ: A new Line doesn’t tend to use alignments, each deity is associated with one.
The Three Golden Goddesses made the world, Din forming the land, Nayru giving the land order and law, and Farore giving the land life. Upon exiting the world, these deities left behind the artifact known as the Triforce, a power so immense it could grant any wish to those who sought it out and touched it.
Din – CG, Light & War
Din is the Goddess of Power, who formed the world. She is sometimes described as having fiery arms. Her temples are often pyramidal in structure, the color red adorned throughout.
Farore – NG, Light & Life
Farore is the Goddess of Courage, who brought to life all the living beings of Hyrule. Her temples are often open-aired, the color green flowing through them in abundance.
Nayru – LG, Knowledge and Light
Nayru is the Goddess of Wisdom, who poured her essence into the primordial world to instill the spirit of law. Her temples often are libraries, the color blue being used throughout.
The tales, legends and mysteries of these three deities (some consider them akin to ancestor spirits) permeate throughout all of Hyrule.
Ganon – LE, Death & War
Link – CG, Life & War

A mysterious and secretive god, the Sheikah revere it. Though associated with Death and Trickery, it cares little for what they are used for.
