Biography

Dorrah is a Gerudo soldier who guards the front entrance of Gerudo Town with her fellow guard, Merina. She wields a Gerudo Spear When Link tries to enter Gerudo Town without a disguise, the guards will stop him. Dorrah will tell him that no "voe" are allowed in Town.[2] She apologizes if Link speaks to her and says that it is a strict tradition that "voe" are not permitted into the Town,[3] suggesting that Link instead go to the Kara Kara Bazaar if he needs to prepare for a journey.[4][5]

When Link mishears "voe" as "boe," Dorrah corrects him, explaining that "voe" means "man" in Hylian.[6] Dorrah also explains that the Gerudo word for "woman" is "vai".[7] When Link finishes speaking to Dorrah, she tells him that "Good-bye" is "sav'orq" in Gerudo.[8]

If Link tries to sneak into Gerudo Town without using one of the three entrances or removes any piece of his disguise while in the Town, Dorrah will yell that a man has been detected and commands the soldiers to capture him at once.[9] Link is then thrown out to the front entrance of the Town, where Dorrah points her Gerudo Spear at Link and tells him that men are forbidden by Gerudo law.[10]

Once Link obtains the Gerudo Set, he can speak to Dorrah again. She explains that Gerudo Town is Hyrule's largest trade hub and that only "vai" are permitted to enter.[11][12][13] When Link mishears "vai" as "bai," Dorrah corrects him and explains that "vai" means "woman" in Hylian.[14] She also explains that the Gerudo word for "man" is "voe."[15] Dorrah recommends learning the Gerudo language if he plans to stay at Gerudo Town.[16]

After Divine Beast Vah Naboris has been calmed, Dorrah says that Riju has calmed Naboris and, if he's wearing the Gerudo Set, Link can come now relax in Gerudo Town.[17][18] She expects there to be more traffic in and out of Gerudo Town, which means she'll have to be more diligent to keep men from entering.[19]
