RZS 009: Fado by wings33 RZS 009: Fado by wings33
because after all, her name is Fado.
yes.
it is.

She's just interesting because she's so different from the other Kokiri... she's blonde!! And she's got that crazy hair-do.. and during the Biggoron sword trading game, she creeped me out a little... talking about how everyone turns to Stalfos with that smile on her face, standing there, rocking from side to side.... ¬¬....
I saw pictures of her from the beta version of OoT or something.. and she looked different Oo.. I think she used to be more important in the game but that's just conjecture... who knows... :O_o:
so anyway...

Yup. Male, apparently human (round ears!) and runs the ranch from beginning of game.

the Fado pictured here is from Ocarina of Time. I think they were originally going to use her as the Sage of Wind, but somewhere along the way the Wind Temple became the Forest Temple and they decided to use Saria instead. I think they just reused the name in Wind Waker for the different character.

hmmm.... I never thought of it that way. Interesting.... Do the other Kokiri have names? I mean... I know Mido, the leader and all... but I don't think it mentions the other ones.

I don't think so. Fado's name isn't mentioned in game either, but someone found that information in the beta version or something. I think the only reason she has a name is because she was originally planned to have a larger role in the story, which would also explain her unique character model.

Hmm... I never knew that. Personally, me being a Saria fan, I don't mind that Fado wasn't a sage. Though... yeah, I never did try going up to Fado with masks on... hmm... lol I already read what she says, but I still want to see what happens.

Never played it or seen it played, but there was a website up somewhere all about the beta and the glitches in the earlier cartridges. That's how I found out.

Just for the record, Saria is the only Kokiri who's NOT blonde. Blonde doesn't mean yellowish hair. That's just one type of blonde. So Fado isn't that unique.

the other Kokiri don't look blonde to me.. they look like red-heads. That's a whole different allele.

She creeped me out a bit too during the Biggoron Sword too. I even drew an illustration of that scene years ago, but never got to finish it. I wonder if she creeped out other people too XD

Yeah I also saw some screenshots of her beta version. She was standing on the roof of that Kokiri Shop, right? But her crazy hair-do was the same XD

Very nice job drawing her!

Plus 'she' pretty much gets a magical sex change in WW when...it becomes a sage. XD lol WHAT?

She's special, but not as cute as Saria:D But I remember her... met her for the first time on top of the pillar in the middle of the Kokiri village. I kept wondering why she was so different from the others... thinking she had some higher purpose in the game like Saria...

Ooh, definitely remember her. She does have some wild hair. :3 It's neat how those Japanese developers come up with those names like that. Thinking of Pokemon, the professors are all named after trees, and then the cities are all named after like colors and stuff. Unique. Anyways. The picture.
The face, is awesome. I really like the lips, it only takes a few lines to define them, and you take advantage of that very well. They look great. You did the hair very well also. :D

The stories I've head called her Mira. o_o BUUUUUUT, that sounds more like the beta name. So yeah. Heehee!

oh, ok... that explains it then.....
let me start over so you know what I'm talking about.
So I always heard/read her name was Fado, I even looked it up on Wikipedia.
I also read about how her name and Mido's name are based off the musical scale of do re mi and so on.
So anyway, one day I made a Kokiri character and recently I decided to name her. Having read that musical scale thing, I decided to choose a name by using the same method. I came up with Mila.
But it struck a familiar chord after a while, and soon I found out why: Mila from Wind Waker.
Now I had also read somewhere that the Fado of WW probably got his name because the LoZ people were recycling unused names, and I thought to myself, "what a coincidence that Mila's name follows the musical scale thing.. maybe she was a recycled name too." and voila!
Mi+la would of course be Mi+ra in Japanese, so now everything totally makes sense^_^
..Or I could just be making something out of nothing, but whatever.

Oh yes. I noticed this in the fan world I read as well, I just never noticed the scales until they were pointed out to me. I'm guessing this fan author didn't have the same utilities on hand to know that Fado was a beta name, and came up with Mira on his own. I didn't know this either at the time and his name for the kokiri stuck in my head. I even cringed when I read other fanfiction that had different names... it was so weird.
