Link, to follow up on Zelda
Visually, this draws inspiration from the Twilight Princess-Link in terms of colour-scheme (while in his Ordon outfit, TP!Link wears cream and green with orange accents) and in the layers (with the chainmail-like layer beneath the tunic) as well as from Shiek from Ocarina of Time. I wanted to keep the colours usually associated with him, while getting away slightly from the tunic-and-pointy-hat combo - the green headgear is actually part of the scarf wrapped around his neck.
While Zelda got remade into a more pro-active, saves-her-own-damned-self knight rather than the passive role she’s usually relegated to, I decided to let Link step out of the role of silent saviour of the world - since Zelda’s already doing the kicking behinds and taking names-bit, Link is free to be something else. So I recast him as a slightly mischievous street urchin who has found an actual use for all those Deku Nuts the games tend to throw at you that you rarely, if ever, use: quick getaways.
