- The astral plane
Yeah, except he was still Ganondorf, the man, after having had the ToP 7 years, and he didn't even improve the lives of the Gerudo despite being in a position to be able to. I don't think he ever really cared about them. Ganondorf the man is selfish, he only cares about himself. He used the Gerudo as his own personal army, but as soon as he got the ToP, he didn't go back to the desert, he made his own castle atop the ruins of the original castle and just got all moody about how the other 2 Triforce pieces eluded him. Let's not also forget...IN all fairness his people are forced to live in the desert and suffer the blistering heat, the fleshing removing sandstorms and the shivering ice of a desert night and so he might indeed have just wanted a better realm for his people initially but, he was greedy and desired more power than he had.
He was just up in the castle playing the organ and being all salty for 7 years... That was how Ganondorf occupied his time.
An army of Gerudo theives was sufficient before he had a Triforce piece, but afterwards, he kicked his own people to the curb and made no effort to improve their situation. He was the King of Hyrule for 7 years because he had so much power and nobody could stop him. He could have let the Gerudo settle into Hyrule itself, instead they are still living in the harsh desert.
