The human Farore is best known as the Oracle of Secrets. Due to their identical names, similar personalities, and symbolism, it has been theorized that she is an incarnation of the goddess Farore. She is the third Oracle alongside Din and Nayru.
Farore appears in both Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons, where she reveals the secrets obtained as a result of linking the Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons games. She is hidden in the Hall of Secrets.
There was planned to be a third Oracle game, The Legend of Zelda: Mystical Seed of Courage, which would presumably have had Farore star equally as Nayru and Din do in Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons. However, Capcom ultimately decided that it would be too complex to link three different games, so they abandoned the third and integrated Farore into the two remaining Oracle games as the "Oracle of Secrets". Whether the Oracle of Secrets was her original title, or even if inclusion of oracles as an afterthought to the cancellation of Seed of Courage, are both common answer-less questions asked in the Zelda community.
Book of Secrets
Farore carries the Book of Secrets, also known as "Farore's Memory". Little is known about the book, but it was to be a very important item in the Third Game of the Oracle Trilogy. But that game was canceled, and Farore was reduced to a minor role in both Oracle games. She is only seen as a small sprite with limited animation. After completing a game, or starting a password-linked game, a book titled "Farore's Memory" will appear to the left of Farore. It contains any linking passwords found so far.
As Din is a dancer with the Rod of Seasons, and Nayru is a singer with the Harp of Ages, Farore may be, or would have been, a Tutor or Writer with the Book of Secrets.
The Minish Cap
In exchange for help finding a house, she will offer Link charms which can be stored in Empty Bottles. Farore's Charm does not turn Link's tunic green (because it already is) but instead turns it light purple. This may also be because her charm is a combination of Din's and Nayru's, which turn his tunic red and blue respectively. All four colors resemble the Four Swords Links' Tunics. Her Charm increases both attack and defense, but the offensive boost from Din's Charm is stronger, and the defensive boost from Nayru's charm is more potent.

||She's looking for a house in Hyrule to move into. She's a very helpful person, but people take advantage of her kind nature. This really bothers her.|
- Her trophy description could be a reference to how what was expected to be her game, Mystical Seed of Courage, was removed from what would have been the Oracle series trilogy. The fact that Link can only find houses for two of the Oracles may be a reference to this as well.
- The concept art for Farore shown in Hyrule Historia seems to indicate that she was originally planned to be a singer, a role that would later be assumed by Nayru.
