(Credit goes to Ririku for his Zelda: Primordial Darkness RP)
It's been 200 years since the Hero of Time defeated Ganon the Demon King.
With the help of the 7 Sages, Ganon was banished to the Void Realm.
7 seals were placed on the entrance to the Void Realm and the 7 keys that locked them were scattered throughout the 3 realms:
3 were hidden in Hyrule
2 were hidden in Termina
2 were hidden in the Twilight Realm
With the Dark One locked away for all time, peace returned to the land of Hyrule...
...Until the day of the solar eclipse. As the shadow covered the light of the sun, the Army of Twilight invaded Hyrule. Under the rule of the Twilight King, Castle Hyrule was sieged and the Queen imprisoned in the ivory tower.
The Twilight King sought the divine power of the triforce and entered the Golden Land. But his presence tainted the sacred resting place of the goddess' power. When the Twilight King touched the triforce it shattered into many pieces and those pieces were scattered througout the 3 realms.
As you sleep in your bed you recieve a dream. The old Light Sage tells you of a forgotten darkness that threatens to awaken once more. While your destiny is unclear, You and many others will shape the future of the world...
...But will you lead it into the light, or will you consume it with darkness?
Welcome to TLOZ:War of the 3 Realms. As a chosen bearer of a Sacred Shard, your task is to collect the other shards to help save the 3 realms...or collect them to rule the realms. Here are the details to better help you create your hero:
THE SACRED SHARDS
The Sacred Shards are pieces of the 3 shattered triforces. They come in 3 varieties; Power, Wisdom, and Courage. Depending on the shard your hero possesses, this will shape the abilities, magic, and style of play throught this RP.
Power Shards: Red shards represent the warrior class. Those possessing red shards tend to favor combat. They solve their problems with their weapons and offensive magic, and lack the basic puzzle solving skills and magical aptitude the other two paths possess. Weapons exclusive to Power shard bearers are Long Swords, Hammers, Axes, Maces, and Claymores.
Wisdom Shard: Blue shards represent wisdom and are used by those seeking the arcane knowledge of magic use. Those who possess wisdom shards specialize in, Protection, Supportive, and Healing magics. Their offensive magics are particularly potent and they have a large mana reserve to draw upon. They make great scholars and alchemists. Weapons exclusive to Wisdom Shard Bearers are Staves, Spell Books, Magic Daggars and Talismens.
Courage Shards: Green shards represent courage and are wielded by those favoring adventure. The bearers are puzzle solver masters. A well rounded hero, their knowledge of the land and lengthy supply of tools and gadgets them suitable for almost any situation. They are not a physically strong as Power Shard Bearers or possess the magical skill of Wisdom Shard Bearers, but their agility, versatility, and ingenuity makes up for their shortcommings.

Hometown: Gerudo Valley
Background(Keep it short):Every 100 years a male is born amongst the Gerudo. That male is raised to become the leader over their people. Korvo was born amongst the Gerudo tribe. Because of what Gannondorf wrought during his rain as Gerudo leader, the Gerudo women, as well as the rest of Hyrule, look upon Korvo's birth with great suspicion. Korvo was sent to the Dester Collassus where he was raised by Twinrova the sibling witches of the desert temple. Korvo is nothing like Gannondorf. He has a stern but kind heart and works tirelessly to undo the wrongs that where caused by his predecessor.
