Background & History
Marin hails from Mabe Village on Koholint Island in another dimension, where she is adored by everyone for her both beauty and sing ability. She lives in the village with her father Tarin. Having never left the island, she dreams of traveling across the seas and visiting distant lands. When Link becomes shipwrecked on Koholint, Marin rescues him and together with her father takes care of him while he recovers from injuries he sustained during the storm that shipwrecked him on the island. During his stay on the island Link discovers that the entire island (as well as its inhabitants) is a dream world created by the sleeping Wind Fish which disappears after Link uses the Instruments of the Sirens to awaken the Wind Fish. Unlike the rest of the island's inhabitants, Marin does not disappear and instead is transformed into a Seagull, allowing her to fly across the sea and visit distant lands fulfilling her desire to explore the world.
Like most DLC characters, Marin has no role in the main story of Hyrule Warriors or Hyrule Warriors Legends. However in the game she is depicted as having a strong association with the Wind Fish whom she can summon to aid her in battle, likely due to fact that the deity's dream resulted in her and the rest of Koholint Island's inhabitants very existence.
In addition to being a playable character, she also appears as an enemy NPC on the Koholint Island DLC Adventure Mode map. Owing to her noted physical similarities to Zelda from the original game, Marin when defeated has drops that belonged to Zelda.
Marin is a talented musician, singer, and dancer. Her singing is even capable of bring cheer to humans and animals alike. Marin fights primary wielding Bells in battle and moves with its rhythmic attacks as if dancing. The bells produce sound waves that attack in a wide radius and can be used to summon the Wind Fish to aid Marin in battle.
