Princess Zelda

Princess Zelda (ゼルダ姫, Zeruda-hime?) is the name of a fictional character in The Legend of Zelda series of video games by Nintendo. The name has applied to many female members of Hyrule's royal family, which includes several distinct characters in Hyrule legend.

Though she is the eponymous character, the player controls the protagonist, Link. Similar to the Mario-rescues-Peach story in Nintendo's Super Mario game series, Zelda is usually kidnapped or imprisoned by Ganon (Ganondorf), though Zelda usually plays a more prominent role in the story than Peach, oftentimes aiding Link either directly or indirectly in his quest against Ganondorf. In some games, she appears as one of the sages. In others, she displays other magical powers.
