Aryll is a very kind, mature, and thoughtful person who is eager to help others, especially her Grandma. One of her favorite hobbies is to hang out at Aryll's Lookout and play with the seagulls. Her telescope is her most cherished possession, but she lends it to Link as a special gift for his birthday. Soon after, she and Link notice a giant bird known as the Helmaroc King soaring in the skies while carrying the leader of the pirates, Tetra, in its talons. The pirate's crew successfully hit the Helmaroc King with a cannon ball, causing Tetra to fall into the nearby Fairy Woods. Aryll urges her brother to go and rescue the pirate girl, and after Link does so, the giant bird mistakes Aryll for Tetra, taking her away to the Forsaken Fortress. It becomes Link's sworn priority to save her and banish the evil menace behind all this.
After some persuasion, Tetra allows Link to come with her on the ship and travel to the Forsaken Fortress in an attempt to rescue her sister. However, Link is captured by the Helmaroc King before he can get to Aryll, who launches him off into the Great Sea.
Later, Link returns to the Forsaken Fortress and is finally able to rescue Aryll. Tetra and her crew of pirates take her away and promise to return her safely to her home of Outset Island. As such, Aryll spends the rest of the game traveling with the band of pirates, sending her older brother letters from time to time. It should also be noted that Aryll has a change of wardrobe during her stay with the pirates: instead of her usual light blue dress, she changes to a dark purple dress with a skull near the bottom. She continues to wear this dress during the Second Quest.
Aryll is seen again at the end of the game aboard the pirates' ship after Link and Tetra surface from the now-flooded Hyrule. She appears once again waving good-bye to her older brother before Link and Tetra leave in the search of new lands.
Curiously, Aryll and Grandma are neither seen nor mentioned at all in Phantom Hourglass. Aryll is referenced by Nyeve; when Link trades the Hero's New Clothes for a telescope, he says "This is something valuable that I borrowed from my little sister...Ahhh ha ha! Just kidding."
|Aryll (Figurine from The Wind Waker)|
|| Birthplace: Outset Island.|
Personality: Kind and true to her family.
Link's energetic younger sister is adored by all who meet her. Her current goal is to learn how to fetch water so she can help out her grandmother. Her most treasured belonging is a telescope bearing a drawing of a seagull.
- In the character design notes for Aryll in the Zelda Box book, Eiji Aonuma says that Aryll (アリル, Ariru) was originally going to be named Mariru (マリル) to be similar to Marin (マリン) from Link's Awakening and Malon (マロン, Maron) from Ocarina of Time. As such, certain similarities between Aryll and Marin can be noted, such as their affinity for seagulls, and the red hibiscus in Marin's hair that appears on a pattern on Aryll's dress.
- Her trophy in Brawl erroneously claims her telescope is marked with turtles, when it clearly has seagulls painted on it.
- ↑ "Speaking of your sister, she saw me at work the other day, and she said she wanted to learn to carry jars on her head like me so she could help your grandma with chores." — Sue-Belle (The Wind Waker)
- ↑ "Hee hee hee! This is my FAVORITE spot to gaze out at the sea. When I play with the gulls, I call it "Aryll's Lookout."" — Aryll (The Wind Waker)
- ↑ "I'm going to give you my most treasured belonging...but just for one day!" — Aryll (The Wind Waker)
- ↑ "Link, this is so terrible! That girl fell into the forest! You have to go help her!" — Aryll (The Wind Waker)
- ↑ "And unless my eyes fail me, the young girl who was just kidnapped from this island also has long ears, does she not? Much like YOU do, Miss Fearsome Pirate. My point is that the bird mistook that poor girl for you, and that's why it grabbed her!" — Quill (The Wind Waker)
- ↑ "I may as well tell you that the bird that kidnapped both you and Link's sister has made its foul nest to the north, on the heights of the Forsaken Fortress." — Quill (The Wind Waker)
- ↑ "If you're worried about your sister...don't be. I promise I'll deliver her safely back to your little island. Normally, I'd expect a huge reward for something like this...but this time, it's my treat!" — Tetra (The Wind Waker)
- ↑ "How have you been, Big Brother? I'm here on the pirate ship writing you this letter. Isn't that neat?" — Aryll (The Wind Waker)
