Appearances

Oracle of Seasons

Din OOX.png

Din appears in Oracle of Seasons, where she is a talented and famous dancer in the land of Holodrum.[1] As the Oracle of Seasons, Din is responsible for regulating the seasons of Holodrum. Although she has the power to change the seasons at any time or place, she refrains from doing so, allowing them to flow naturally. She travels with a Troupe of Performers throughout the land as a means of evading General Onox, who intends to imprison her in order to throw the natural order into chaos.[2] Din is also aware of the location of a mystical tool known as the Rod of Seasons, which allows Link to change the seasons at will.

Din dancing

Din's personality is an energetic one, and she loves to have people dance with her. At the start of Oracle of Seasons, Din has Link dance with her.[3][4] She is also known to be a caring individual who helps others.[5] After Onox's downfall, Din will quite often suggest that she and Link dance together again. She also does so on Oracle of Ages, in a Linked Game, after Ganon has been defeated.

The Minish Cap

Din also appears in The Minish Cap where she is said to be a famous dancer from Holodrum. She is one of the three ladies in the Happy Hearth Inn (along with Nayru and Farore) who are looking for a place to live. In exchange for help finding a house, she will be able to give Link a charm. Din's charm makes Link's attacks stronger and turns his tunic red for the short duration of the effect.

Trivia

  • At first glance, Din resembles a Gerudo woman because of her red hair and reddish-brown skin, but she lacks the longer nose, yellow eyes and round ears common to the race.
