Paya’s secret correspondence
Everyone who’s made it to Breath of the Wild‘s Kakariko village knows Paya: the shy and dutiful grand-daughter of Lady Impa, she spends her waking hours caring for Impa’s great house and devotedly tending to the religious and cultural icons of the village.
But Paya is not all she seems. It’s not just her birthmark which is hidden: her letters reveal concealed strengths and determination, as well as an undercover mission of grave importance to the future of Hyrule…
Index: Letters from Paya
I was so sorry to leave the village without telling you, but I had no time to come and see you. Lady Impa instructed me to leave and head for Hateno straight away. I barely had time to pack a few things before I left!
Dear Lady Impa,
I arrived in Hateno last yesterday as planned. The journey was mostly uneventful, although the section close to the old fort was unnerving: there are many broken guardians. I know this old battlefield holds many bitter memories for you.
I hope all is well there in Kakariko. It’s been a few days since I arrived in Hateno so I thought I’d let you know how things are going here.
My Lady Impa,
I am pleased to confirm that we now have a secure method of communication. I can now report that everything is going to plan and the boy suspects nothing.
