I was thinking that maybe that character is Majora before she was turned into Majora's Mask . I think that would make for an awesome storyline, if this was a prequel to MM, even though I said I didn't want to see a pattern between Trifore and Majora games... =P
Did anyone think of the possibility it might be Princess Zelda in a sheik-like disguise? I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo pulled that one again.
Either way, I love how the new character looks! I'm hyped up for SS now.
While his designs certainly do feature the same motif as the Gilded sword, it is hard to say (as pointed out in the other thread, Gilded Sword is just a powered up Kokiri Sword) The resemblance should not be ignored though, I don't think.
He does also feature very similar coloring and other qualities to Madame Skyward, so I would think he is definitely of the sword tribe.
Twilight to me seems unlikely, as he doesn't fit Male Twili fashion, especially the face. The teleporting is also very different, with the diamonds being left behind rather than rushing away.
The heavy usage of diamonds also makes me wonder about a playing card motif being involved somehow.
"My name is Debbie Diamonds. You killed my Sky Whale. Prepare to die."
Debbie seems like he would make an underwhelming villain. He feels like a character that belongs on side of the protagonist.
It would be interesting if he's an Interloper fighting on Link's side. Since TP told us that the Dark Interlopers were banished to the Twilight Realm, I imagine that things wouldn't end well for Debbie if he is an Interloper.
