The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, when the children of Ordon Village arrive at Kakariko Village after escaping from King Bulblin's forces, she seems glad to have company in the desolate village. She, like her father and Barnes, are first encountered as spirits. She stops Barnes from lighting the candles to open the door to the basement, commenting that earlier she saw Shadow Insects while she was securing the basement. After Link restores light to the Eldin Province, Luda insists that Link return the children of Ordon to their parents, despite her sadness at be separated from them. When King Bulblin recaptures Colin, Luda can be seen clutching her father and trembling in fear.
It is hinted that Luda is romantically interested in Colin because both she and Beth argue over who will care for him, and she refused to leave his side after Link rescued him from King Bulblin. Luda also helps take care of Prince Ralis when he is transported to Kakariko Village, due to his illness. Like Colin, Luda is worried about the Zora boy's depression following his recovery.
She is saddened when the children leave to return to Ordon Village, and says that it will be a lot more lonely without them, especially since Ralis left to be with his people.
