Jabun, more commonly known as Lord Jabu Jabu, is the second Sage of Water of Hyrule and the founder of the Zora Dominion.

Etymology

Jabun's name has no meaning in his native tongue. The Zora adopted the word jabu into their language from his name, meaning 'almost god' or 'demigod'.

History

Spoiler warning!
This section contains plot details.

Ancient Age

Jabun was one of the few survivors of the slaughter brought on by the Ocean King's Phantom Army. He withdrew from the northern Great Sea and eventually found his way into Hyrule, settling at the source of the Zora River. There the Zora began to worship him, believing him to be Malkorbagia's successor and the Wind Fish of their legends. He established the Zora Dominion and formed the monarchy that would rule over for the next several thousand years.

First Golden Age

Jabun rests for many centuries, only awakening to instate new monarchs to the Zora throne. He is greatly disliked by the other Sages of the time, notably the Great Deku Tree. Shortly before the Gerudo Wars erupts he makes Princess Ruto his successor, after she is killed and Zaleen pleads with Jabun to bring her back to life.

The Gerudo Wars

Jabun is present when the Twili and River Zora invade the Zora's Domain in 100 AG. Slothful with age and his gluttony, he puts up no resistance against Veran, who kills him in retribution for her husband's death at the hand of Ruto.
