The Seven Sages are a group of characters from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. After withdrawing the Master Sword from the Pedestal of Time in the Temple of Time, Link was trapped inside the temple for seven years, until he was mature enough to become a true hero. When he was released from his detainment, a sage named Rauru spoke to Link in the Chamber of Sages about the evils Ganondorf had inflicted on Hyrule in his absence. Link then set out to find the five unawakened sages, Saria, Darunia, Princess Ruto, Impa, and Nabooru to fulfill their destinies as sages. After awakening them all, they combined their power to grant Link access to Ganon's Castle, and seal the evil king inside the Sacred Realm, which provided the basis for two widely-accepted chronologic timelines.
