The War in the Sky desolated Hyrule, eradicating almost an entire generation of Hylians. Now, war is brewing again. When Link, a smuggler, is brought before Princess Zelda for treason, he's given a choice: use his skills to serve Hyrule, or hang for his crimes. To protect the ones he loves, Link must learn to play the Hero's part. Non-game-specific, vaguely steampunk AU.
