Remember The zora had a relooking between The Snes and the N64 games
King Zora before his day of sitting in the only water source of Hyrule.
And except the king, they were design to be enemies
It's may be again totally incorrect assumption, This may be totally coincidental, but the fact is they introduced the zora mask and a fairies companion in 1992 , 6 years before the Ocarina of time release in 1998.
This mask is useless, or is it ?
Yes, Zora mask are useless.
This one was much better, It's a shame a new father have to die for me to get it.
Finally, you may wanna check back some of your Zelda stuff, cartoon or comic, maybe you will find something that will come back in Skyward sword. Just like what happen of Zelda cartoon episode "the missing link" and the game "Spirit Track" ( worse Zelda game in my opinion ) is the same thing, except the character are reverse ( in the game Zelda is a ghost and in the show, Link is the phantom ) .
