Link talking to the Impa in Kakariko Village in LoZ: BotW.

Impa is a character appearing in the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


Impa is one of the Shiekah who had been working with Princess Zelda.




Impa: "The hero, as chosen by the Shiekah heirloom, will be gifted the blessing of antiquity." Paya thinks "The hero, as chosen by the Shiekah heirloom" is you, so she stayed up all night researching the heirloom. She came to the conclusion that "the blessing of antiquity" refers to one of those ancient shrines. And that heirloom is the key that opens the shrine. And just before we were able to tell you this, the thing is stolen!


  • Impa has been a reoccurring character in the Zelda series since her introduction in The Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
