Nabooru (mother)
Urbosa (half-sister)
(numerous half-sisters)
Buliara (bodyguard)

Makeela Riju is the only true-born daughter of Emperor Ganondorf and his wife Nabooru, his legal heir, and half-sister of Urbosa, she has a bodyguard named Buliara.


Riju believes the survival of the Gerudo people lies out in reaching into other cultures instead of conquest like her father envisions. Many Gerudo see such an ideal as naive and certain to doom their people.


Second Golden Age

Riju is born to Ganondorf and Nabooru some time after he's freed from imprisonment at the hands of the Darknut Legion, and is immediately named as her father's heir due to her status as the daughter of his legal wife, something which attracts jealousy from het half-sister Urbosa. In her youth, Riju spends most of her time raising Sandseals in the desert.
