The Kokiri (pronounced Ko-keer-ee) are a playable faction in Hyrule Conquest.

Description

The Kokiri are the descendants of an infamous group of Hylian Bandits that made their bases inside the forest of the same name. For many years they would launch raids and pillage the cities around the forest, all the while hunting and destroying the native inhabitants of the woods. These bandits made the unfortunate mistake of attacking the ancient Deku Trees, and as a result their leader gathered many of the forest creatures and slaughtered the Hylian Bandits. They did, however, spare the children of these vile people and with them the Great Deku Tree began a great transformation. Over a century later, the Kokiri have grown and evolved into a creature slowly becoming more plant than animal. While under the influence of the Great Deku Tree they do not age, and when the time is deemed right a Kokiri can metamorphosis and transform into a Korok to reproduce and spawn more Kokiri. Though they may seem like children in their appearance, the long lifespans of the Kokiri mean many of them are older than most people in Hyrule. When faced with a fight, the Kokiri are able to rally large numbers of fighters in short order. Their armies usually are not very organized, and a Kokiri is more likely to pick up the nearby kitchen knife rather than stock up on professional grade armaments. The Kokiri also tend to be very well supplied, and their troops can last much longer on the battlefield before getting tired because of this. Their small size and lack of warfare training mean that individually the Kokiri are a rather unremarkable force however. They tend to be very easy to scare, and it's not uncommon to see the Kokiri turn and run when faced with a more powerful foe. Even with these faults, a proper Kokiri army in full march is a potent force and one that should not be underestimated.

Language

The Kokiri primarily speak Deku, as taught by Kasuto.

History

Ancient Age

The history of the Kokiri begins with a group of renegade Hylians known as the Kokiri Bandits. who rose as the Kingdom of Hyrule stagnated and declined over the centuries, occupying the abandoned outposts of the kingdom's eastern territory in the Faron Woods and Kokiri Forest as bases from which to raid the surrounding countryside. For years they pillaged the frontiers of Hyrule and slaughtered the native wildlife of the forest, until they made the mistake of attacking the Deku Trees, who, under Kasuto's leadership, united the Wolfos, Deku Scrubs, and Huskus and destroyed the Bandits, slaughtering them to the last man and woman. Kasuto took pity on the young son of the bandits' blacksmith, however, and set about the experiment of evolving he and other hylian children past their base animal instincts; the Kokiri were born.

Along the edge of the Great Deku Tree's influence, Kokiri begin to revert back to their animalistic natures and slowly become feral and violent - the Kokiri who have come to live along the Forest border with Faron Woods are known as Mudmen, for their practice of covering themselves in mud to camouflage themselves amongst the foliage.
