The Adventure of Link

One Healing Lady is found in each town of The Adventure of Link (with the exception of Old Kasuto). Reconized by her red dress, her main purpose is to heal Link whenever he is wounded.[1] To do so, the Healing Lady invites him inside her house.[2]

Cassiopia (right) with her husband and son

A Healing Lady known as Cassiopia makes an appearance in the Day of the Triforce story from Issue #5 of the Legend of Zelda comic.[3] She is the healer of the Water Town of Saria, where she lives with her husband, the River Man,[4] and their son Rus.[5] She goes to the North Palace to inform Princess Zelda that Lynels have attacked her town and asks for her aid.[6][7] When she and Zelda return to defeat the monsters with the help of the rest of the people of Saria,[8] the River Man informs Cassiopia that their son, Rus, has been gravely wounded by a Rope.[9] Desperate, Cassiopia confesses that Rus is beyond her healing powers and that he will not last beyond sundown,[10] but just then Zelda tells her that she will go to the Magic Spring and bring a fairy to cure the boy.[11] Although Cassiopia wants her to go,[12] her husband insists that Zelda go and destroy Ganon instead, for who knows how many other children will die if the Prince of Darkness is not stopped once and for all.[13] In the end, Princess Zelda brings back Miff to heal Rus, greatly overjoying Cassiopia as she sees her son cured.
