But to call that character "Link" is to forever bastardize a beloved character by saying anyone by that name can claim to be the legendary hero. ... so? i thought that was the point of Link being reincarnated through time, it's always someone named Link who winds up the legendary hero. I don't see it as bastardization, I see it as 'something different for the series'. I mostly agree. What I mean is that Link has been depicted throughout the games as being a fair-haired male, Hylian, wears green... there are certain things that combine together to define Link as a Nintendo character. A strong female character should not be superimposed over an existing identity, you wouldn't name a newborn child after a deceased sibling. Invent a new character and establish some new origins to make her equally compelling and unique.
