When Link first meets the Old Man, he is seen camping in an alcove just east of the entrance of the Shrine of Resurrection. The Old Man follows Link throughout his journey through the Great Plateau, often deflecting Link's questions into what he is doing. He requests that Link bring him the Spirit Orbs from within the Ancient Shrines in exchange for his Paragliderthe means of escaping the Great Plateau. There, he promises to tell Link the truth about who he is, asking for Link to meet him at the spot where the four Shrines intersect before mysteriously fading away.
Upon doing so, the Old Man will speak to Link from the rooftop of the Temple of Time, urging him meet him there. King Rhoam informs Link that he chose not to bear his true form while Link's memories were still fragile. After hearing a prophecy of a means to combat the Calamity Ganon lying underground, King Rhoam decided to heed the prophecy.
In doing so, they uncovered the Divine Beastsgigantic machines intended to be piloted by warriors. The Champions and the denizens of Hyrule Castle lost their lives as well. King Rhoam's daughter, Princess Zelda, survived and directed members of the Sheikah tribe to place Link within the Shrine of Resurrection to revive him as she went to contain Calamity Ganon alone.
King Rhoam retroactively debuted in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity where he is seen readying the Hylian Army into battle, and reminds Zelda to focus on her duty of awakening her powers, rather than studying the Guardians and Divine Beasts. He is also seen with a sword during the fight against their own Guardians which Ganon recruited to his side by corrupting them.
He is later unlocked as a playable character, where he is able to switch to his old man guise in battle to change to a different move set. In. From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia. Jump to:search.

The Old Man Paragliding to Link. I was A kingdom which no longer exists. So we meet again.
Get the paraglider
My back is acting up again I suppose that means this old man has had enough hunting for one day. Oho ho! That means Link, it is finally time for me to tell you everything. But first Imagine an X on your map, with the four shrines as the end points.
Find the spot where those lines intersect. I shall wait for you there. Do you understand?
Where two lines connecting the shrines would cross I will Here I am Get up here—quickly! Now, then The time has come to show you who I truly am It devastated everything in its path, lo, a century ago. It was then that my life was taken away from me. And since that time, here I have remained in spirit form. I did not think it wise to overwhelm you while your memory was still fragile. So rather than that, I thought it best to assume a temporary form.
Zelda: breath of the wild - completing the isolated plateau and visiting the temple of time
Forgive me. I think you are now ready. Ready to hear what happened years ago. The demon king was born into this kingdom, but his transformation into Malice created the horror you see now. Stories of Ganon were passed from generation to generation in the form of legends and fairy tales. But there was also And the power to oppose it lies dormant beneath the ground. It wasn't long before we discovered several ancient relics made by the hands of our distant ancestors.
These relics, the Divine Beasts, were giant machines piloted by warriors.
Old man (breath of the wild)
This coincided with ancient legends, oft repeated throughout our land. It was they who sealed Ganon away using the power of these ancient relics. One hundred years ago, there was a princess set to inherit a sacred power, meet old man a skilled knight at her side. We selected four skilled individuals from across Hyrule and tasked them with the duty of piloting the Divine Beasts. With the princess as their commander, we dubbed these pilots Champions—a name that would solidify their unique bond. But nay Ganon was cunning, and he responded with a plan beyond our imagining.
He appeared from deep below Hyrule Castle, seized control of the Guardians and the Divine Beasts, and turned them against us. Those residing in the castle as well. The appointed knight, gravely wounded, collapsed while defending the princess And thus, the kingdom of Hyrule was devastated absolutely by Calamity Ganon. The princess survived My dear Zelda.
And the courageous knight who protected her right up to the very end That knight was none other than you, Link. You fought valiantly when your fate took an unfortunate turn. And then, you were taken to the Shrine of Resurrection. Here you now stand revitalized, years later. Even now, as she works to restrain Ganon from within Hyrule Castle, as she calls out for your help. However, my daughter's power will soon be exhausted. Once that happens, Ganon will freely regenerate himself and nothing will stop him from consuming our land.
But I am powerless here You must save her And do whatever it takes to annihilate Ganon. I believe it would be quite reckless for you to head directly to the castle at this point.
