Racer InfoEdit

King Harkinian is a King of Hyrule and father of Princess Zelda. He appears several times early in the life of the Zelda franchise: in the Valiant Comics, the animated series, and the video games Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon for the Philips CD-i. King Harkinian appears in the beginning and ending FMVs in the Faces of Evil. Prior to receiving Gwonam's prophecy, he explains to Link, who is bored due to the absence of any battles, that "this peace is what all true warriors strive for". In Wand of Gamelon, Harkinian travels to Hyrule to help his cousin, Duke Onkled, whose lands of Gamelon are being attacked by the evil forces of Ganon. After a month of absence, Link goes to Gamelon to help the King, complying to his request when he left. After another month, when both Link and King Harkinian have not sent word, Princess Zelda, Harkinian's daughter, decides to go to Gamelon to find Link and her father.

It is later revealed that Onkled betrayed his cousin and had him imprisoned, and sided with Ganon in exchange of power. Link was sealed into a mirror by Ganon with the use of magic. Zelda then manages to free both her father and Link, and Onkled is made to "scrub all the floors in Hyrule".
