The Hero of Legend
Many generations ago (depending on who you ask), there was a time of darkness in the land of Hyrule. An evil thief, Ganondorf, wanted a great power for himself -- the Golden Power. Fueled by three power relics, the Triforces, this Golden Power would give Ganondorf the ability to remake the world as he saw fit.
Like a jerk, he made into a world and darkness and nightmares. That one move just begged for a hero to come along and save the day. That hero was Link.
Well, a Link, anyway. Throughout the generations, the Knights of Hyrule protected the lands. Usually, whenever a great evil would come along, the great hero (a decedent of the Knights of Hyrule) named Link would just randomly appear. He'd get himself the Master Sword (another power relic), fight his way through a series of dungeons, and save the day.
In the end, Ganon (having wisely ditched the "dorf", which was only holding back his cool factor) was always defeated, and Link went on to live a life of peace and happiness.
Well, at least until some new evil came along. Or boredom set in. That often happens, too.
Our Link, being one of the multitudes of Links out there throughout the centuries, has had many adventures. This has lead him to realize that all of life is an adventure, and there's always a hero for an adventure -- so why bother being the hero? Someone else will always come along. Besides, a while back Link accidentally ended up a zombie, and he's got a long un-life to plan for. He'd much rather make money and retire in style then have to save the world every other week.
If confronted, Link can use his bag of weapons and items to fight off any attackers. He has an uncanny ability to carry untold items, and will fend off any attack not just with his sword and shield, but with boomerangs, arrows, bombs, fire rods, ice rods, quake spells, hook shots, ocarinas (so effective in combat), and nuts... among various items he usually carries in his bag.
Plus, as a zombie, there's always the chance he'll just eat your face. You never know.
