Impa is one of the last survivors of the race of Sheikah, the ancient protectors of the Hylian Royal Family. She has silvery-gray hair and red eyes. She was born and raised in Kakariko Village, and though she still keeps a house there, she now lives at Hyrule Castle serving as nursemaid and bodyguard to Princess Zelda. Link first meets Impa as a child after sneaking into Hyrule Castle Courtyard to meet Zelda. After teaching Link "Zelda's Lullaby", Impa escorts him out of the castle. When Ganondorf attacks Hyrule Castle, Impa takes Zelda and flees on horseback. The two spend the next seven years in hiding from Ganondorf. When the Shadow Spirit breaks its seal and emerges to wreak havoc upon Kakariko Village, Impa heads to the Shadow Temple to reseal it. When Link completes the Shadow Temple, Impa is awakened as the Shadow Sage. Link receives the Shadow Medallion from her.
