forgive me for this possibly over-said and obvious (?) headcanon
I firmly believe Wind Waker Link is between 16-19 years of age
ok, so you know how OoT link has to age in order to wield the master sword
and TP and SS link are already old enough to wield it, so no problems there
well, in WW, link is immediately able to wield the Master Sword, so therefore he must be of age.
many people see him as like 10 years old not only because he has such a young-looking sister (who also acts like a young child), but also because he himself looks young. But! ALL the characters in ww look young because of the game’s cartooney-looking nature.
Take Tetra for example. she’s the leader of a pirate ship, and she ‘looks’ to be about 10-12 as well. yet, she’s the captain of a pirate ship. Not saying that it’s impossible to do it at that age, but highly unlikely. I’d place her at 17-25 years
here’s another, more controversial, suggestion: tetra seems to be interested in link, and — since I’ve already stated why I think she’s older — unless she’s a pedophile, she grows an interest in link due to their close age (among other factors, of course).
but, well, the above paragraph is only feasible if you’re a telink shipper
otherwise, just kinda….. ignore that paragraph, I guess??
