Gerudo Sorceress by mattleese87 Gerudo Sorceress by mattleese87
Finally finished the second character in my Zelda tabletop game. This is my sister's character, a Gerudo Sorceress, which we came up with a name for but misplaced it (I'll add it in here later when we come up with one). I had her use her limited artistic skills (I drained the family of this skill for the last few generations at least lol) and she designed a decently well thought-out costume for her, inspired a bit by Gypsy clothing. Later, her boyfriend and I went to a hobby store for tabletop games and we found the PERFECT figure for her, one that not only looked like a Gerudo, but who wore an outfit very similar to her drawing and had a bit of a Gypsy flair.

So, in this drawing, I decided to combine elements from the two: her sketch and the figure. This is what I came up with. I also wanted to put her in a visually-interesting place, and the most interesting place in Gerudo Desert (besides all the lovely sand lol) is the Desert Colossus statue, marking the entrance to the Spirit Temple in Ocarina of Time. The setting takes place a few centuries after Ocarina of Time, so I figured perhaps the bottom half of the statue would have been claimed by the sand by this point and the Spirit Temple forgotten to all... except those delving into the dark magic arts that is. Perhaps her character has been spending some time there and learning the ways of Koume and Kotake? We shall see.

Perhaps it is a young Komune?

Not really, it was just a female Gerudo character created specifically for the game I had put together (see image description). Then again, perhaps Nabooru had practiced some sorcery in her youth, especially if she had once been close to Ganondorf.
