- "The sand-seal races are a Gerudo tradition... It's pretty simple: you use a sand seal to race around a course to see who's the fastest. Just go out the southeast gate of the town and head to the right. You'll see the starting line immediately! No harm in taking a peek, right?"

Essa is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. She can be found in Gerudo Town in the Gerudo Desert region of Hyrule, at the Southeast Booth of the Sand-Seal Rental Shop. Essa works along side Frelly and Kohm, tending to the Sand Seals Sue, Nah and Zarashi during the day. Her uniform is a light blue Gerudo Top and Sirwal decorated with cartoon sand seal motif, along with a white apron and necktie with the same symbol stamped in their center. She appears to have a passion for the Sand-Seal Rally and holds Frelly in high regard for the work she does training sand seals for the race.
