They (also "They," or Them) are mysterious beings found in Kakariko Village.
They appear as humanoid creatures wearing robes much like those of the followers of Vaermina, coupled with gauntlets similar to Elven Gauntlets, and helmets much like Shellbug Helmets. Their eyes glow yellow-orange, and their heads seem to be aflame with light yellow light. They seem to hover a few inches above the ground, and do not appear to have any feet.
They are found on the east side of the village, near the Smithy and eastern tower. Near Them is also a bright ball of light, around which several of Them are stationed. They are often seen searching chests or reading books.
If attacked, They will retaliate using a small weapon enchanted with shock damage and paralysis effects, or shock magic fired from a small disc held in Their hand. When defeated, They vanish with a bright explosion, leaving behind a pile of rags that contains a book, Rupees, a small white rod called Their Device, and a silver disc called Their Device (Broken).
Background and Inspiration Edit
They are based on creatures from Majora's Mask. In the game, They are referred to as Ghosts, but also by the plural pronoun "They." JKalenad decided to make Them all the more mysterious by giving Them no name other than a capitalized, plural pronoun. He reinterpreted Them, and developed a full backstory for Them to explain Their presence in Termina, as well as in Kakariko Village.
They were added to the mod in version 6.4 with Kakarikp Village. JKalenad plans to expand Their presence further in versions 6.5, 6.6, and 6.7, with each update giving additional clues toward an explanation of who (or what) They are. Their small discs will also be given a purpose in version 6.5.
It is JKalenad's convention to refer to Them without quotation marks, and to capitalize the pronoun whenever They are referred to.
