As we’ve reported before, Spirit Tracks takes place a hundred years after Phantom Hourglass. Link and Tetra from Wind Waker found a new land and named it Hyrule. They’re not alone in the new Hyrule as we’re introduced to the Lokomo people, the natives of Hyrule.
The Lokomo appear to be half-man, half-train. Lokomo is a pun on the word locomotive, while the name of the only confirmed Lokomo so far, Anjean, is a pun on the word Engine. Anjean is a wise old lady who guards the Spirit Tower in which the Demon King is sealed. She is the one who gives Link the Spirit Train in his quest to rescue Zelda.
As Anjean is the only Lokomo that we currently know about, it is possible that the mechanical half may simply be some sort of wheelchair unique to Anjean, though it is unlikely as the trailer showed Anjean moving around freely on the wheels without touching controls of any sort.
Either way, the Lokomo have been specifically mentioned by Nintendo as “the Lokomo people”, so we have added them to our Races of Hyrule page.
