Well here is a theory I thought of. In OoT there is a theory that Gaebora Kapebora (Or I think that is how I spell the name) is actually the sage Rauru. On one of the Gossip Stones (I forgot where) it says that K.G is actually a reincarnation of a sage. I believe that they meant incarnation and not reincarnation. Now Rauru was stuck on the Sacred Realm. I believe that he released a part of him that was in the shape of an owl (K.G.) and that part can only stay in its owl form. After OoT comes TP. I think that during TP the sages will be the same, so the seven sages will be still there. Maybe (Really crazy theory coming up) Rauru becomes king of the new Hyrule. After TP is when the flood happens (At least thats what I think) and after Hyrule is flooded it enters into a Space/Time Portal where everything gets frozen. So Rauru gets stuck on the portal. The portal is only on Hyrule and not on the rest of the mountains so as time passes on on the mountain tops, Hyrule stays the same. Only Rauru survives the portal so he dies. Before he dies he sends another part of him, this time it being a ghost. The ghost's name is the name of the king of Hyrule in tWW (I forgot his name) Now this ghost can be transformed into a boat.
What does my theory say? That Rauru (well kind of) is the king of hyrule. They kind of look alike
the only similarity I see is white men with white hair... old white males....I think your working too hard on this.
meh... Whatever Commit fellatio speedy quadraped! Zelda I love you so much, don't deny me loving you or else I'll give you ADD and out of wed-lock pregnancy 98% of the teen population is cool, 2% aren't
One thing is sure, though. Rauru cannot be Kaepora Gaebora, because he appear in the second part. As for Rauru being Zelda's father, I really don't think that's likely. For starters he is dressed more like a priest than a king. And had he been there WOULD have been some clue in the game.
