|Mipha, the Zora Champion|
Mipha (Japanese: ミファー Mifā) is a character from The Legend of Zelda series who first debuted in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. One of the four Champions of Hyrule, Mipha was chosen by Princess Zelda and King Rhoam Bosphoramus Hyrule to be the pilot of the elephant-like Divine Beast that resided near her home of Zora's Domain, Vah Ruta. Mipha and Link had been friends since childhood, and it is hinted that she may be romantically-interested in him.
As the daughter of King Dorephan, Mipha is officially the princess of Zora's Domain. Like fellow Champion Urbosa however, she is often referred to with the title of "Lady" (or "Champion") instead of "Princess" by the Zoras.
Mipha is a member of the aquatic Zora race, and as such bares only slight resemblance to Hylians. Though she, like all Zoras, does have a human-like figure, Mipha has a number of fish- and amphibian-like traits, including webbed feet, gills, and feet. In particular, Mipha has red scales that cover her body, and a large fin that protrudes from the back of her head. Though Zoras are not known to wear clothing, Mipha differs in this by wearing a silver-coloured piece of net-like jewellery on her head, as well as a blue sash that denotes her as one of the Champions of Hyrule.
In most pieces of official artwork, Mipha is shown to wield a silver trident referred to as the Lightscale Trident. After Mipha's defeat at the hands of Waterblight Ganon, this trident became a treasured relic to the Zora people, and they use replicas of it in memory of her for various festivals.
Mipha is shown to be a kind Zora, with a very thoughtful personality. Mipha has a power that allows her to heal the wounds of others, and she is willing to use this power to help anyone in need. In addition, she deeply cares for those close to her, and aims to protect them through any means necessary - she is shown to spoil her younger brother, and is not afraid to lay down her life to keep him, or her childhood friend, safe. Still, she is a very quiet and fairly introverted individual, whose voice is almost always calm and can be drowned out by others fairly easily.
|An amiibo figure of Mipha exists! For more info about this amiibo, see this page.|
- The names of all of the Zoras that appear in Breath of the Wild are musical references. Mipha's name comes from the western solfège, "Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Do."
