Midna's Father is a character in the Twilight Princess manga by Akira Himekawa.


Before the manga's events, Midna's Father ruled the Twilight Realm and Twili people as king, since he was recognized for having the strongest power.[2] He ruled with a council and Zant as his close advisor. When he died, his daughter Midna was a candidate to be the next leader, with Zant being the other.[3] The council of Midna's Father feared Zant's ambition, and chose the king's daughter instead.[4] Zant was displeased at this because he had been planning to take Midna's Father's throne, so he used his magic to usurp the princess.[5]
