The Queen of Fairies is a recurring character in the Legend of Zelda series. She has the appearance of a child, although it is unknown if this is her true form. Despite this, she is actually a queen who is greater and more powerful than even the Great Fairies. Her roles in Link's adventures are brief, but they are significant.
The Queen of Fairies resides within the larger of the Mother and Child Islands, which can only be reached by warping inside it with the Ballad of Gales. However, if Link attempts to visit her before rescuing Aryll from the Forsaken Fortress, she remains unseen, telling him there is another he must protect and to return to her at a later time. After learning of Tetra's true identity as Princess Zelda, Link returns to the island, where the Queen of Fairies reveals herself and grants him the abiility to use Fire and Ice Arrows.
The Queen of Fairies possesses a doll that resembles a Great Fairy when she first appears, which she uses to mimic the movements of the Great Fairies before shattering it into two smaller fairies, both of which gift Link with the powers of fire and ice. Before disappearing, she also mentions that Link is 'just her type', causing Link to look away and blush.
The Queen of Fairies appears at Hyrule Castle in the Whereabouts of the Wind. She has been split in two, both halves resembling a River Zora from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. When Link restores her to her true form, she will open the barrier blocking the entrance to Phantom Ganon's lair. The Queen of Fairies also has the ability to destroy hordes of enemies with magic. The animation she uses to do this is visually similar to Link using the Bombos Medallion. Before departing, she promises to tell her friends (presumably the other Great Fairies) across Hyrule to aid the Links on their quest should they meet them.
