|“||I've been waiting for you, Hero of Time... When evil rules all, an awakening voice from the Sacred Realm will call those destined to be Sages, who dwell in the five temples. One in a deep forest... one on a high mountain... one under a vast lake... one within the house of the dead... one inside a goddess of the sand... Together with the Hero of Time, the awakened ones will bind the evil and return the light of peace to the world. This is the legend of the temples passed down by my people, the Sheikah. I am Sheik. Survivor of the Sheikahs...||„|
Sheik (シーク Shīku?, Hylian SHylian HHylian EHylian IHylian K) is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Sheik serves as Princess Zelda's alter ego in the game; to escape Ganondorf's capture, Zelda passes herself off as a male Sheikah known as Sheik. Throughout the course of the game, Sheik aids Link, who is initially not privy to Sheik's true identity, by providing him with information and teaching him teleportation songs with a lyre, allowing Link to easily warp to an area corresponding to the song.
Sheik is a mysterious Sheikah warrior that claims to be the last of her kind. She teaches Link the various songs to teleport him to the various temples around Hyrule. Likewise, Sheik turns out to be Zelda's alter ego.
Sheik can only use one weapon: the Goddess Harp. She also packs lots of Kunai as well. The Goddess Harp allows Sheik to play the various Ocarina of Time songs to utilize various elemental attacks, yet the weapon deals damage of the Lightning element only, which is also the Goddess Harp's element.
