Aryll is Link's slightly younger sister in the GameCube video game The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. She is a blond girl from Outset Island, and is kidnapped early on in the game after Link saves Tetra from Ganon's henchmen. Aryll is actually the first character that the player will encounter in the game. In the beginning she's looking for her older brother and finds him on top of the watchtower that she named after herself (Aryll's Lookout). There she wakes Link up and tells him to visit their grandmother. After doing so Link's grandma explains the day's plans, which involve him turning the age of the Hero of Time of legend when he thwarted the beast that threatened the entire world. She then tells him to go back and play with Aryll. Upon doing so Aryll gives Link her most precious possession: her Telescope, but says that he can only have it for one day. After this the two of them spot a young girl about the age of Link fall into the forest after her group of pirates shoot the captor (a bird called the Helmaroc King) out of the sky. Aryll suggests that Link goes save the girl, and does so after acquiring a sword. As Link starts to head back, Aryll comes to greet him on the bridge. After she starts to cross it, the Helmaroc King from before mistakes her for Tetra and kidnaps her. Link attempts to jump after the Helmaroc King, but foolishly almost falls to his death. Thankfully Tetra saves him in the knick of time.
Following this Link requests that he travels with Tetra and her gang of pirates on their ship in order that Link can save his sister. The group reluctantly agrees, but only if Link can manage to find a shield. He does so and his adventure begins to save his sister and destroy the evil that brought all of this upon her. Little does he know that a much bigger quest involving more people than just her sister is soon to begin.
