Queen Rutela is a ghost from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
Rutela was the Queen of the Zora race until she was killed by members of Zant's army, who had covered their village in Twilight. Later, Link would travel to the domain, defeating the shadow beasts lying within and defrosting the ice, getting Rutela's attention, causing her to ask the hero to go to her injured son's aid. After he does so, Rutela thanks him by rewarding him with the Zora's Armour allowing him to traverse the Lakebed Temple and her to rest in peace with her husband.
