New Skyward Sword Info On Zelda's Dad And Link's Rival

Nintendo has been pretty mum on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword's story up until now. Fortunately, we can now bring you a few tidbits about the role Zelda's father and Link's school rival will play in the game.

Groose has been Link's nemesis since the two were just kids. He's jealous of Link's relationship with Zelda, and we're guessing it's because he has a crush on the pointy-eared damsel. Groose is Link's biggest competition in the bird-flying race.

Gaepora is Zelda's dad, and also the headmaster at Link's school. It sounds like he'll act as an authority figure and Skyloft historian. The name of Zelda's dad is remarkably similar to the that of the owl from Ocarina of time, Kaepora Gaebora. Could the similarity be due to each character playing the role of a wise sage?
