The Gerudo people give birth to but one male every hundred years. He then becomes king of the desert thieves and rules over their fortress in the sand. During the years in which Ocarina of Time occurs, that king is Ganondorf.
A highly intelligent man, Ganondorf was not satsified to remain in exhile in the desert. He settles
in Hyrule under the pretense of peace and bides his time until Link opens the doors to the Sacred Realm,
allowing Ganondorf to claim the Triforce of Power.
