In the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link is the main playable character of the game. Over one-hundred years ago, he was in a ferocious battle with Calamity Ganon, which lead to an near-death defeat due to Ganon's steadly increasing power, and corrupting Hyrule's ancient Shieka technology. Princess Zelda carried the injured hero to the Shrine of Resurrection, where he would remain safe and heal for the next one-hundred years while she used her remaining power to lock Calamity Ganon away in Hyrule Castle to prevent him from escaping and causing further uproar.
