Link is the main protagonist of The Faces of Evil, and is seen at Hyrule Castle at the beginning of the game. When Zelda is kidnapped by Ganon's forces, it's Link's job to awaken her and defeat Ganon. It seems he always wants to get kissed by Princess Zelda, but is always rejected. Also, he seems to know the King of Hyrule and has some sort of connection to the royal family of Hyrule. Either that, or the developers took the earlier Zelda games into consideration and followed the time line. This could mean that Link has saved Zelda before, and that this Link is from the same generation as the one from The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
