Eldin is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It is the third Light Spirit that Link encounters. The spirit resides in Eldin Spring, where its power was stolen by Shadow Beasts, turning the area to twilight. After meeting with its broken spirit, which appears to be a small cloud, it gives Link the Vessel of Light to collect the Tears of Light. After all the Shadow Insects are destroyed, it will return Link to his true form.
Eldin resembles a hawk or owl with very large wings. It holds its light in its talons.
It is likely that "Eldin" derives from the name "Din", the goddess of power.
