The Oracles,[1] also known as the Group of Lovely Young Ladies,[2] are a group of three powerful women. They are: Din, the Oracle of Seasons; Nayru, the Oracle of Ages; and Farore, the Oracle of Secrets. They all appear in Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, with the former two Oracles having prominent roles in those games, as well as The Minish Cap.

Biography

Oracle of Seasons

The Oracle of Seasons is fated with keeping the world's climatic order in balance. When Din is kidnapped and forced into a crystal prison by General Onox, the seasons go awry and change at the slightest notice.

Oracle of Ages

The Oracle of Ages has the ability to travel through time. When Veran takes of the body of Nayru, the Oracle of Ages, she goes back in time to change the course of history.

The Oracle of Secrets plays a very minor role in the Oracle games. She resides in the Hall of Secrets, only talking about secrets from the Linked Game and giving special items if given certain passwords.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, the Oracles appear as traveling vagabonds in search for permanent residence in Hyrule Castle Town. Link can fuse Kinstones with all three, but only the first two fusions provide the travelers with permanent homes in the town. If the Kinstone Fusion grants Din, Farore, or Nayru a house, Link will be presented with Din's Charm, Farore's Charm, or Nayru's Charm, respectively.
