"That is Henya. She is spirited and quick to offer opinions. She cares for the students at the Knight Academy, where she has worked for 25 years."

Henya, also known as the lunch lady according to Pipit, is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. A resident of Skyloft, she is an elderly woman that works in the kitchen of the Knight Academy, since the academy started. Henya is married to Rusta.


At the start of the game, Fledge is supposed to carry barrels to the kitchen, but if Link speaks to him, he can help Fledge do it. Henya will then thank Link for doing Fledge's job.

If Link sits down at one of the lunch tables, Henya claims that he is late for breakfast and that he can come back for lunch if he is hungry. If Link shatters a pot in the kitchen, she will get angry, warning him that he will be "mopping soup stains for a week" and eventually losing her temper, threatening that she is going to talk to the headmaster about expelling him.


As many residents of Skyloft seem to be named after birds, it is possible that Henya is named after the hen. This is supported by her husband's name Rusta, which is inspired after the rooster.
