I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I'm bringing it up anyways. Has anyone else wondered what exactly became of the Terminian counterparts of the Sheikah? We see Gerudo, Zora, Goron, and Deku counterparts (no Kokiri I know, but I want to focus on the Sheikah here), but why are the Sheikah left out? There had to have been some at one point, familiar Sheikah artifacts such as the Mask of Truth, The Lens of Truth, and of course, the mysterious Gossip Stones are all obtainable in the game. All of these are confirmed to be passed down by the Sheikah (in Ocarina of Time anyway), so this is pretty much confirmation the Sheikah did indeed inhabit Termina at one point. What became of them? What are your theories regarding the absence of Terminian Sheikah? My own little theory is perhaps they served what is assumed to be the Hyrule Kingdom counterpart; the Ikana Kingdom and their Royal Family, much as they served the Royal Family in Ocarina of Time and before. Ikana Canyon holds a graveyard much like the home of the Sheikah, Kakariko Village, does in Ocarina of Time. Perhaps during the fall of Ikana Kingdom, they left and/or died out, similarly to how they're near extinction in actual Hyrule at the time. Let me hear and discuss your thoughts on this topic!
