The Fairy Queen is a recurring character in the Legend of Zelda series.
The Fairy Queen resides within the Color Dungeon found exclusively in the DX re-release. Once Link slays the Giant Hardhat Beetle, he will gain access to the Fairy Queen's chamber. Here, she offers him either the Blue Clothes or the Red Clothes as a reward for completing the dungeon successfully.
The Fairy Queen, ruler of the fairies of Labrynna, is a powerful entity who watches over the Zora Seas. After Veran possesses Nayru and wreaks havoc on the past and present ages, she at one point puts a curse on the Fairy Queen, turning her into an Octorok. She then uses her magic to poison the sea, polluting the water and making it difficult to navigate.
Link, on his quest to defeat Veran, is required to cleanse the sea in order to enter the seventh dungeon, Jabu-Jabu's Belly. He finds the Fairy Queen, who tells him of her plight. He goes to the Eyeglass Isle Library and obtains the Fairy Powder, the only object that has the power to break the curse on the Fairy Queen. He sprinkles the powder on her, and her true form is restored. She cleanses the sea, allowing Link to enter Jabu-Jabu.
