Skyloft and the Legend of the Goddess
The piece of land that Hylia sent floating in the sky became known as the Isle of the Goddess.
The floating islands inhabited by the humans that had escaped was named Skyloft, and its inhabitants came to live in harmony with the Loftwings, a type of divine birds granted to them by their Goddess.
Knowledge of the Goddess and the surface became but an oral tradition, and as the memories faded over the thousands of years that passed, their existence turned into legends.
In the ancient battle, the humans were powerless against their demonic adversaries and had no chance but to flee for their lives. Thus, the people of Skyloft set up a small force of vigilantes.
To protect the lineage of vigilantes, Gaepora established the Knight Academy, where youths learned to fly together, practice with swords, and graduate to become part of the knights of Skyloft.
Isle of the Goddess
A piece of land cut from the surface by the Goddess. The ceiling to the entrance of the temple contains images of the 6 Triforce emblems (later known as the Sage Medallions), but the drawings are decrepit and the entrance is partially demolished.
A peaceful paradise of islands connected by bridges and linked to the Isle of the Goddess.
Protecting the Old Lineage
The legends of the Goddess are handed down from generation to generation, and old scripts from the surface detail the secret of the Goddess Sword hidden inside the statue of the Goddess.
These letters originate from the era when Goddess Hylia reigned. They can be found in various locations, such as in the Goddess Sword pedestal and on various buildings on the surface. However, since they’re so ancient, they can not be deciphered.
