Who is Impa? – Zelda Lore


The Legend of Zelda series has numerous characters across its various entries. While the series focuses on Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf, other characters play important roles. One character that has appeared in multiple titles is Impa. This may leave you wondering who Impa is, and if she will be in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

The History of Impa in The Legend of Zelda

Impa has appeared in numerous titles within The Legend of Zelda series. The Impa seen in various games is not always the same character but the same family. She almost always plays a pivotal role as Zelda’s attendant. Impa has been her nursemaid, bodyguard, advisor, and more. Impa is a member of the Shieikah tribe, has protected the royal family for many generations, and has given Link valuable information on his quests. Here are all games featuring Impa in The Legend of Zelda, though my personal favorite was in Skyward Sword.

Is Impa in The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom?

There is no official confirmation that Impa appears in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. It takes place after Breath of the Wild, and we see many familiar faces, so Impa may return. Impa was quite old in Breath of the Wild, so her returning may depend on how long the game is set after the events of Breath of the Wild.
