This is a scene from the final battle between Link and the Sheikahn dark wizard Agahnim in the "Shadow of Katirok" fan story - written by Andy Pinkston and Mikey Patch

I made this for Woodland-Mel's annual Zelda Calendar contest for 2013.

This is a scene from the final battle between Link and the Sheikahn dark wizard Agahnim in the "Shadow of Katirok" fan story - written by Andy Pinkston and Mikey Patch

"Some time ago, before the King of Hyrule unified this country, there was a fierce war in our world."
Deku Tree Sprout

Link awakens from a terrible dream of war and destruction. The last time he dreamt of something so significant, Hyrule was overthrown by the bearer of the triforce of power. He had to travel through time to change the course of history. But maybe this change made a new path for evil to tread.

During the Hyrulean civil war for the triforce and the sacred realm, 2 warriors saved Hyrule from the Garo interlopers from the north.One (the most powerful) was a Fierce and loyal knight of the King named Ealit, and the other was the prodigy of the sheikah named Agahnim. Under the direction of the Majune, the matriarch of the sheikah, Agahnim betrayed Ealit and the king in a plot for obtaining the triforce. The traitor sheikahs were executed and Agahnim was banished to the desolate land of the Garo in the north called Katirok.

8 years later, the time of peace granted by the Hero of Times victory, is coming to an end. Agahnim survived, and has returned far more powerful that ever before. Link must find a fierce power from the past in order to protect the future.

I prefer this Link over all of the others, save maybe Hyrule Warriors.

I have a question. Have you already checked the offical sources like Hyrule Historia, that your story fits in like a glove to its hand?

Nice artwork, never read the story but wow. :)

Damn impressive! What's struck me here is how Agahnim is taking a more hands-on approach in battling Link though still using his magic but he's more mobile physically!

A fan story, hmm? Where might I find it? o-o

The art is quite lovely, by the way. :3

I LOVE the look of the sheikah wizard. I love how you took Sheik's look and warped it to be so much more sinister.
I also love your redesign of link - he looks a lot more grand and heroic. is this fanfiction based on the Link to the Past time period?

I looked up "Shadow of Katirok", but I didn't find a story. Is there anywhere where it has been uploaded?

Is it just me, or does this remind any one of the demigod Perseus? The guy behind Link looks like a male Medusa.

The Garo look like they mean business all clustered up like wisps... I can't describe it but it looks amazing.

What is the timeline? :3
Irontree Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Professional General Artist
This story takes place 8 or 9 years after Ocarina of Time (after Majora's Mask as well).
Link has returned to Hyrule after his surreal journey through Termina and starts a humble life as a shop keepers assistant in a small village a couple miles northeast of Kokiri forest. But that doesn't last long. Sorry, I had to get a little dramatic there haha :XD:

It's ok I understand now :)
