She is a resident of the Twilight Realm and a descendant of the ancient Twili people. At first she seems to be a strange, dark creature with an agenda of her own and little regard for Link, but she ends up changing her attitude towards those who are willing to help her. Midna is one of the Twili, a race descended from wielders of powerful and evil magic who were banished to an alternate dimension by the goddesses Din, Farore, and Nayru. This alternate dimension, out of which the sublimated descendants could only exist as shadows, eventually became known as the Twilight Realm. She remains as an imp-like creature through most of the game. In recent time, the Twili have been converted to fearsome "Shadow Beasts" and Midna into an imp-like form by the self-appointed Twilight King, Zant. Midna reveals this information to Link in the Gerudo Desert. Upon meeting Princess Zelda, Midna proclaims her as the Twilight Princess. She finds Link, in wolf form, locked in a prison cell, and aids him in his escape. With this comes the new ability to talk to Midna whenever Link chooses, by pressing "up" on the directional pad (Wii), or "Z" on the Gamecube to "give her a sign". Even further along in Link's journey, doing this allows him to choose from several of Midna's abilities, such as teleporting via portals throughout Hyrule or transforming Link into Wolf Link on demand. <img src="http://zeldawiki.org/images/7/78/800px-Midna3.jpg" border="0" /><!--spoiler--></span></div> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Backstory~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ <div class="spoiler"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.nextSibling.nextSibling.style.display='block';this.style.display='none';" value="Show spoiler"> <span class="spoiler_content" style="display:none"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.parentNode.style.display='none';this.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes[0].style.display='block';" value="Hide spoiler"><br>After rescuing Link, in return for Midna's help, Link finds the Fused Shadows for Midna. The power of the Fused Shadows can be used to destroy Zant, returning Midna and the other Twili to their true form. Midna does not tell Link, however, that she wants the Fused Shadows for the benefit of herself and her world. After collecting all Fused Shadows, Midna is gravely injured by Zant. Wolf Link carries Midna to Zelda who revives Midna, at the cost of her light essence. After seeing the unselfish acts made by Zelda and Link, Midna has a change of heart and vows to help save Hyrule from Zant. The duo now set off to repair the Mirror of Twilight, a portal to Zant's stronghold, the Palace of Twilight. After the Twilight Mirror is rebuilt, having being destroyed by Zant, the Sages reveal that Midna is the true Twilight Princess and ruler of the Twili race, not Zelda, who had previously been defined as the Twilight Princess by Midna herself, presumably to keep a cover on her identity. Zant, after usurping the throne from Midna, placed a curse on her that gave her the form she maintains for most of the game. This curse could presumably not be lifted until Ganondorf, the source of Zant's power, was defeated. Once Link has faced Zant in battle, Midna uses the Fused Shadows to destroy Zant. She uses only a fraction of the power that the Fused Shadows hold to do this, and is utterly bewildered by their power. The Fused Shadow's power is also used to break the pyramid-shaped barrier around Hyrule Castle. Midna uses the power to transform into a giant, spider-like beast with a large pole-arm weapon (see below). This same form is used in an attempt to destroy Ganondorf during the ending sequences of the game, but ultimately fails. Shortly thereafter, Ganondorf is seen holding up the helmet part of the Fused Shadows that was Midna's trademark garment, breaking it in his hand. After Link, with some assistance from Zelda, defeats Ganondorf once and for all, the Light Spirits revive Midna and break the curse placed on her by Ganondorf and Zant, allowing Midna to regain her true form. In a comical moment when Link first sees her true form, she is amused by his silence and asks, "Am I so beautiful that you've no words left?" Before going back to the Twilight Realm, she bids everyone farewell and sheds a single tear, which, upon contact with the Twilight Mirror, destroys it completely, just before she returns to the Twilight Realm. She vows to Link that she will "see him later," however this it is unknown if what she says comes true, as the Mirror was the only known link to the Twilight Realm. As another last word, she asks that everyone "...remember that there is another world bound to this one." She may be hinting about the Hour of Twilight, mentioned in a conversation between Link and Rusl, and Rusl states that the two worlds intersect when the sun sets. During this ending sequence, as her tear begins to float toward the Mirror of Twilight, Midna addresses Link, beginning with the word "I..." but never finishes her sentence. <img src="http://zeldawiki.org/images/3/38/Midna_fused.png" border="0" /><!--spoiler--></span></div> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~True form~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ <div class="spoiler"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.nextSibling.nextSibling.style.display='block';this.style.display='none';" value="Show spoiler"> <span class="spoiler_content" style="display:none"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.parentNode.style.display='none';this.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes[0].style.display='block';" value="Hide spoiler"><br>Standing a head taller than Princess Zelda, Midna possesses red hair, red eyes and a pale complexion from the Twilight Realm. She wears a hooded cloak in similar design to Zant's leading some to believe that this may be some kind of royalty garb. With this, she wears a half-dress that reveals one leg bare, and a headdress (or crown). Strangely, she slightly resembles Veran. <img src="http://starsmedia.ign.com/stars/image/article/819/819525/midna-20070912083701970_640w.jpg" border="0" /><!--spoiler--></span></div> ~~~~~~~~~~~Midna as the Twilight Princess~~~~~~~~~~~ <div class="spoiler"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.nextSibling.nextSibling.style.display='block';this.style.display='none';" value="Show spoiler"> <span class="spoiler_content" style="display:none"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.parentNode.style.display='none';this.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes[0].style.display='block';" value="Hide spoiler"><br>In the game, after hearing Zelda's story about the Twilight Realm and how it came to be in Hyrule, Zelda asks Midna why the Shadow Beasts have been searching so hard for her. Midna, not wanting to reveal her identity, replies, "Why indeed? You tell me!" She is the only one of the Twili who has not been turned over to Zant in the course of the game, as Link finds out. How she managed to evade capture while the rest of her race was taken is not mentioned in-game, although the flashback where she is transformed implies she may simply have been exiled from the inhabited areas of the Twilight Realm. Midna is revealed to have been touched by not only Zant, but Ganondorf as well. This is only because of her true identity as the Twilight Princess, whereas Zant has taken the throne by force. <img src="http://zeldawiki.org/images/8/8e/Midnailia.jpg" border="0" /><!--spoiler--></span></div> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Abilities~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ <div class="spoiler"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.nextSibling.nextSibling.style.display='block';this.style.display='none';" value="Show spoiler"> <span class="spoiler_content" style="display:none"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.parentNode.style.display='none';this.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes[0].style.display='block';" value="Hide spoiler"><br>Throughout the course of the game, Midna portrays several abilities both in the Light and Twilight worlds. The most notable one is that she is able to warp Link through the portals of the Twilight at any given time (provided that Link can transform into a wolf without anyone noticing him). She seems to do this with ease, and is capable of it with any kind of object or person: at one point, Midna warps a bridge and a giant rock from Death Mountain in order to help Link during his quest. Another ability seen in the beginning of Twilight Princess is the capability of walking through walls and other objects, as witnessed when she easily disintegrates and reintegrates as she gets through Link's cell in Hyrule Castle. Moreover, she can easily change her appearance and transform into other people: Midna changes her appearance to look exactly like Ilia and Colin as she reminds Link of who else he needs to rescue. After Link gathers a sword and a shield for Midna to use, she tries to use them, but is displeased by their power, so she vanishes them into the Twilight and keeps them for Link until they are needed. She can also hide in the light world as Link's shadow while he's in his human form. Once he turns into Wolf Link, she can use her hair to pull switches or make a power field around her for Wolf Link to attack enemies within that range. These powers are just some of the many other abilities that Midna seems to possess, another being that she easily frees Wolf Link from his chain and imprisonment by simply concentrating a small ball of energy between her hands. The most important power contained within the true Twilight Princess is the ability to utterly shatter the Mirror of Twilight. Zant, the Usurper King, was only able to destroy the mirror into fragments, and it's only Midna's true powers that can completely obliterate the Mirror. <img src="http://zeldawiki.org/images/7/7e/Linkmidnalove2.jpg" border="0" /><!--spoiler--></span></div> ~~~~~~~~~~~Relationship with other characters~~~~~~~~~ <div class="spoiler"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.nextSibling.nextSibling.style.display='block';this.style.display='none';" value="Show spoiler"> <span class="spoiler_content" style="display:none"><input type="button" class="button" onClick="this.parentNode.style.display='none';this.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes[0].style.display='block';" value="Hide spoiler"><br>Link Upon meeting Link while he is in wolf form, Midna suggests a deal: she will help him escape from his prison if he does exactly as she says. Midna is often condescending to Link, frequently jeering at him. As they progress further on their adventure, Midna and Link grow closer. When Zant attacks both Link and Midna, she pleads for him to help himself, and carry on with their quest. Because of the heroism of both Link and Zelda, the latter having sacrificed herself to save Midna, she gains a true respect for the people of the light. From then on, Link and Midna maintain a strong friendship, and she is far less disdainful and more amiable to him. Towards the end, Midna sacrifices herself as a last desperate attempt to kill Ganon, sending Link and Zelda to safety. She appears to be defeated however, and Link mourns her death after killing Ganon. Shortly after the Light Spirits restore her, and with Ganondorf's power lifted, she is in her true form, and jokingly says to Link , "What? Say something! Am I so beautiful that you have no words left?" This could also be a nod to Link's being a silent protagonist. Midna, Zelda, and Link return to the Mirror of Twilight, where she breaks the Mirror, seemingly sealing the world of Light and Twilight from each other. Her parting words are "Link... I... See you later." However, this is not what the Japanese text translates to. Her last words, in Japanese, were "リンク…ま…またな…", which translates to "Link...s...see you." <img src="http://www.zeldawiki.org/images/thumb/b/bc/Midna-Wolf.png/280px-Midna-Wolf.png" border="0" /> <!--spoiler--></span></div><!--center--></div>
