After re-beating TWW, something crossed my mind. Is King Daphnes Hyrule dead the whole time? I mean, he is a king of an ancient land from ancient times, so why wouldn't he be dead? He can be seen teleporting around the master sword room, but is this just a teleporting ability, or is he a ghost? If he is NOT dead, then are we to assume that he dies in the ending? Or does he not die at all either way? In the game's ending post-credits, Link is setting off on the new journey while riding the King Of Red Lions. Is Daphnes using the king of red lions as a vessel at this point, or is it now an empty vessel completely? (Is the king of red lions seen in PH? I can't remember if he is or not...) In the game's ending, Zelda says to Daphnes "you can come with us", does she mean as Daphnes himself, or as the king of red lions? Either way, Daphnes refuses as he stays behind, yet in the post-credits we see Link riding the king of red lions as mentioned. So yeah, is Daphnes dead or not? And if not, did he die in the end or not? I'm not sure if this is even open to theory, or if it is an obvious answer that I'm missing?
