Well.............That's a hard question to answer. I have a few theories: 1. A Hylian. Like you said, he's the hero of time, and the hero of time wassupposed to appear as a hylian, not an ordonian, so that could be one answer. 2. An Ordonian. Well, he was suposedly born in Ordon, so wouldn't that make him an ordonian? But there is just one problem with that solution. Where are his parents? Or, who were they? They couldn't have been OoT Link and Zelda, because TP must've been, what? Some 200 years later? Of course, Hylians might live longer than humans, so maybe they were. 3. Hylian-Ordonian. This one really depends on what you consider an ordonian. Now, obviously, Hylians are a species, but I'm not so sure about ordonians. Couldn't that just mean that you were born in or lived in ordon VILLAGE? Soooooooooooooo......................That means that he could just be a Hylian that lived in Ordon, right? I think that answe would make the most sense. Unless, of course, to be considered a Hylian, you had to be born as part of the royal family. So, purelocke, you could be right, except if what I said was true. There are many directions that this could go, and if i continued to list them, it would possibly take over 3 hours.
