When the Zora petitioned the Hylians to help them, some didn’t like the Zora because of what the Zora had sometimes done to their sailors. The Hylians tried to get them to change their minds, but it was no use. As a punishment, the Hyrule clerics cursed them. Their complexion changed. Their eyes glowed red. Horrified at their appearance, they agreed to help. But after the battle, they left.
They reach maturity at the age of 18.

 Dark Hylian Adventurers
Three sample Dark Hylian adventurers are described below.
Iris is a Dark Hylian Wizard. Before she met the adventurers, she would just hang around the tavern, getting a drink and waiting for a Hylian to walk in. She didn't care if she killed someone in public. "That's just what I do." She would say to herself. Once she found the adventurers, there was a Hylian Paladin. At first, she wanted to just kill him. But after a while, he became fairly acceptable in her eyes. "Maybe they aren't so bad."
Falsar is a Dark Hylian Fighter. A trained assassin. His job was to infiltrate the Hylian's Fort and kill the commander. During the attempt, he accidentally set off a trap, which fired a crossbow, hitting him in the back. Overwhelmed by the pain, he cried out, getting him captured. On prisoner exchange, the Dark Hylians got him back. And when his commander asked how he was, he answered, "I've never been treated so well in my life". In consequence of that, he was forced into exile. An adventuring group found him, starved, and dying just for the want of water. They nurtured him back to health. Once he was fully aware of things again, he found out that a Zora had treated him. His whole opinion of Zora changed.
