Here's some info about Link
Link started out as a kid in the first few games, but later took a more adult-like appearance. His weapons involve swords, shields, bombs, and more. In Twilight Princess, he killed Ganondorf by impaling his sword in his chest. Also in Twilight Princess, he met an imp-like creature named Midna, who was later revealed to be the Twilight Princess, the reason why she looked like an imp is because Zant placed a curse on her. In Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, Link can play this song called the "Song of Time" (it's called that because whoever plays the song can travel through to time.) Link is good friends with Zelda (why? Because in a lot of games Link will have to save Zelda -sometimes the world- from chaotic doom).
Here's some info on Yeto & Yeta.
Yeto found a shard of the Mirror of Twilight and gave it to Yeta. Yeta got sick shortly after getting the mirror shard. Ever since, Yeto has been making soup to try to make Yeta feel better. After Wolf Link follows the Reekfish Scent up to Snowpeak Mountain, He meets Yeto who is about to make soup out of some Reekfish. Yeto explains what was going on at the Yeto's home, then takes Link to his house (unusually, his house is not a cave nor an Igloo, it's a classic house on the side of Snowpeak Mountain.) After Link Helps Yeta get better by giving Yeto some special ingredients for soup, Yeta gets better and shows Link the Mirror Shard (it was in her bedroom the whole time). She Takes a look at it, but something horrifying happened. After she looks at the mirror for a bit, her skin turns black, her eyes turn red, and she grows fangs and attacks Link!!! After defeating her with the weapon Ball-and-Chain (a giant iron ball attached to a chain rope), she returns to normal, but falls unconscious, When Yeto arrives, he panics, the rushes to see if Yeta is alright, knocking Link to the side in the process. After Yeta says "Yeto!! Mirror you gave..." Yeto says "Forget mirror, Yeta. Look into Yeto's eyes. Look into reflection of Yeto's eyes. See their true beauty!". Then they hug each other with Healing Hearts bursting out of them. Yeto then says "Who need mirror?".
Here's some info about Ganondorf.
Ganondorf is a Gerudo, and the first male Gerudo born in centuries. In Twilight Princess, for his many crimes (kidnapping, stealing etc.), he was sent to be executed, but something that everyone wasn't expecting was that Ganondorf SURVIVED his execution. In fact, you can see where the Execution Sword struck him (in the middle of his chest, it's marked by a glowing scar.) When Link goes to Hyrule castle to rescue Zelda in the same game, and enters the Throne Room, he sees Zelda's lifeless body floating just above the Throne, then sees Ganondorf sitting in the Throne. Then he taunts for a little bit, then he possesses Zelda, forcing Link to fight Zelda (however, Possessed Zelda has Ganondorf's voice) after you defeat Possessed Zelda, Midna uses the Fused Shadows (Link helped collect the Fused Shadows) to turn into an giant squid that knocks Ganondorf right out of Zelda (who is revived afterwards) But Ganondorf turns into Ganon, Link must either shoot Ganon's forehead with the Hero's Bow, knock him out with the Ball-and-Chain, or turn into Wolf Link and have Midna's magic hair turn into a hand, grab Ganon's tusks, and knock him to the side. Either way, all of these methods knock him to the side, the slash (as normal Link) or bite/maul (as Wolf Link) the area around Ganon's scar. After the fight, Midna telaports Link and Zelda outside so that she can finish Ganondorf off (she turns into the giant squid again, but this time it's armed with an energy spear.). Sadly, Ganondorf defeated Midna while emerging from the ruins of the castle (on horseback) hold the helmet that the Fused shadows make up. Then he destroys it in his hand. Link had to defeat Ganondorf in a horseback dual race. After that, Ganondorf challenges Link to a to-the-death sword fight (sometimes during the fight, Ganondorf and Link will both be caught in a sword lock). After a fearsome battle, Link kills Ganondorf by impaling his sword into his chest, right where his scar from the Execution Sword is. After that, Ganondorf gets back up with Link's sword still in his chest and says "Don't........think..........this is over. The story between...........light and dark..............shall be written in blood!" Then Zant (who was killed by Midna) cracks his neck, then Ganondorf dies.
