Yeah, the way the Bokoblins are treated is pretty awful. Like, if someone were making elixirs out of Zoras, I'm pretty sure they'd get panned by the narrative. >.>

They get coded as nonpeople with the whole resurrection thing, too - the "aimless souls" of Ganon's servants are reincarnated over and over, only to be slain again.

This gets particularly interesting where the Yiga clan is involved. They're the Sheikah (and possibly some Hylians, too, given they keep trying to recruit Link) who follow Ganon, and they also get reincarnated. Except, instead of being visible enemies you can spot on the map, they're travelers who hail you down, typically say something unusual, then transform into ninja-like enemies and proceed to try and kill you. They use the same models and faces as everyone else.

I'm interested in seeing how the Gorons get treated, as they've sort of walked the line historically between ally and enemy roles, and they also get some indigenous coding. (I've met one Gerudo. She was like... look out, kid, you're gonna get killed out here. And then left me to it, lol)

On the other side, it was interesting how Link was received in Zora's Domain - all the Hylians thus far have been either disbelieving (you're the hero? lol no he's dead) or excited (You're the hero! I thought you were dead!) and the Zoras...

Well, they're a long-lived species. Which means a lot of them remember you, personally, as someone who promised them the world and then let them down.

I really can't blame them for their hostility.
