Blue Maiden is a settlement born out of necessity. During the war one of the evil king’s monsters, a giant slug named Derazoru, was used to guard the Water Temple. The giant slug oozes a venomous substance wherever it crawls, and nestled deep in the water source of the temple, its poison has polluted Lake Hylia and Zora’s Domain to the point where the Zora can no longer live there. Though Blue Maiden is a Zora settlement, a population of Lizalfos from the swamp tribes have settled there are well, ostensibly to keep a careful watch over the Zoras who have taken up residence in their homeland. Relations between the two races are tense, both due to taking opposing sides in the Great War and due to territorial disputes.
