Aquatic creatures, the Zora look like the outcome of someone tossing a human and a fish (and possibly a bird - Look at that nose!) into the gene pool. Zoras rely heavily on water, and are often spotted gracefully treading water, or happily diving into it. Most prefer to remain clothes-less, except for a select few who choose to wear clothing. Distinguishing physical traits of the Zora are their silver scales, dark blue spots on their extremities, their rear-hanging caudal extensions of their head (they look like a dolphin's tail), their two large ulnar fins on their forearms (some also have smaller fins on their ankles), and their pronounced noses.
Their fins can grow larger or smaller, serve as sharp-edged weapons similar to swords, projected as boomerangs, or act as a shield. Some Zora's have magical abilities to create electric fields around themselves as extra protection. All Zoras are exceptionally strong swimmers.
"Zolas", also known as "River Zoras" are female, fire-breathing Zora's who have chosen evil and violence over loyalty to Hyrule. Because of this, they are the Zora's enemies.
When it comes to fighting Zora are notorious hand to hand fighters, very rarely picking up an external weapon, unless they are trained guard (then they are rarely seen without the traditional head armour and spear). This makes them particularly weak against armed attacks, especially long ranged - for instance; bow and arrow. However, each Zora/Zola is born with a small amount of natural magic - mainly water based, though other types can be taught.
Due to the nature of their being, Zora's can survive out of large bodies of water for prolonged periods of time, but need to keep their skin moist by being doused in water at least once every three days. If this does not happen, the Zora will get extremely dehydrated, possibly leading to death.Racial Abilities: Zora Scale:
