The game is set in the fictional kingdom of Hyrule, and stars a new incarnation of series protagonist Link as a Hylian soldier-in-training. At some point in the story the Princess of Hyrule, Princess Zelda, is kidnapped by a witch named Cia. Formerly the protector of the Triforce, Cia, a good person at heart, becomes corrupted when she falls in love with Link and grows jealous of Zelda's familiarity with him. Sending out her subordinates Wizro and Valga, who are modeled after the Wizzrobe and Volvagia enemies from previous games, she wages war against Hyrule and prompts Link, and Zelda's protector Impa, to restore balance to the land.
