|“|| "Extraordinary. You stand as a paragon of your kind, human.|
You fight like no man or demon I have ever known. Though this is not the end.
My hate... never perishes. It is born anew in a cycle with no end!
I will rise again!
Those like you... Those who share the blood of the goddess and the spirit of the hero... They are eternally bound to this curse.
An incarnation of my hatred shall ever follow your kind, dooming them to wander a blood-soaked sea of darkness for all time!
|~ Demise's final words to Link|
Demise is one of the two main antagonists of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, a demon who was defeated by the goddess Hylia and sealed in the form of a monster known as The Imprisoned. During the events of Skyward Sword, Demise's servant and living weapon Ghirahim sought the now-mortal reincarnation of Hylia, Zelda and use her life force to release Demise and restore his true form. While Ghirahim succeeded, he died fighting Zelda's friend Link and was sealed within the Master Sword to erase him completely. However, Demise vowed that his malice towards Link and Zelda would be incarnated into one who will make their descendants and reincarnations suffer for years to come.
