Encyclopedia > Hylian

In the Legend of Zelda series of video games, Hylian means from or related to the mythical land of Hyrule. The term generally refers to the Hylian race, a race of humans with certain magical abilities. They have pointed pixie-like ears, and are often mistaken for elves. It is believed that these ears allow them to hear the gods and that they were created to tell the other races their message.

In Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, most Hylians live in the Hyrule Castle town, though a few individuals inhabit land outside of this town, namely Talon of the Lon Lon Ranch and the Lakeside Scientist. The Hylians are closely related to the Sheikah, a tribe of Hylians skilled in magical and martial arts who serve the Royal Family.

In other Zelda games, the Hylians are largely an extinct race in which Link is a partial decendent of. Many items created by the orginal Hylians make reapperences in other Zelda games, like the Master Sword. The Book of Mondura in Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past allows Link to translate things written in the ancient Hylian language.

The Hylian written language is derived from Japanese hiragana, katakana, and romaji. The script is syllabic or more precisely moraic, and each symbol represents either a vowel, consonant-vowel combination, or a syllable final n.
