Fi is the spirit of the Goddess Sword that first appears in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. She accompanies Link on his journey to find Zelda and eventually thwart Ghirahim. Her role in the game is similar to that of Midna from Twilight Princess, in that she is a constant companion that provides aid and advice to Link. Despite being a robotic being, she has a passion for dancing and singing.
Physically, Fi is a small humanoid with a female appearance lacking arms. Her features are masked in blue. She is adorned with a diamond embedded on her forehead, and her cape is divided into two colors; light blue and purple. A large blue gem is inset on her chest, similar to that seen in the Goddess Sword.
Fi is a seemingly emotionless, calculative being. She makes predictions based on percentages of probability and gives advice to Link. At first, Fi only thinks of Link as her master, but opens up as time goes on. She comes to view Link as a friend, and she cherishes the moments she shares with Link and his friends. Fi thanks Link for allowing her to experience these moments and states that she is happy because of that.
Long ago, the goddess Hylia created Fi to guide the chosen hero to stop Demise should he rise again.
After Link loses Zelda to a rogue tornado, Link follows Fi to the Goddess Statue where Fi reveals a secret entrance below. She explains to Link that she is here to guide him in his destiny as she points to sword in pedestal. Throughout Link's adventures, she guides him to his objectives in locating Zelda. When Link finds Zelda in Lanayru Desert, Zelda and Impa escape from Ghirahim though a gate in time. Afterwards, Fi and Link soar to the Isle of Songs where Fi accompanies Link who completes the three trials in the areas he has recently explored. In these three trials, Link searches for the sacred flames to bath both the Goddess Sword and Fi in order to upgrade the sword to the Master Sword.
After forging the Master Sword, Link and Fi returns to Thunderhead where they exterminate a parasite on Levias. Receiving Levia's request, Link and Fi venture forth to explore the lands again to search for the parts of the songs from the dragons. Fi has remained by Link's side until Link crashes in Eldin during the volcanic eruption. Link eventually claims back Fi. With the Song of the Hero completed, Link and Fi soar to Skyloft to complete the last Silent Realm trial. After the task has been completed, Fi assists Link in obtaining the Triforce. Despite that the Triforce has sealed Imprisoned, Fi and Link have to rescue Zelda from Ghiraham who unleashes Demise.
Upon defeating Demise, Fi bids Link farewell due to completing her task. She thanks Link for the precious memories from their adventures. Link sets the Master Sword back in the pedestal where Fi enters an eternal sleep.
I lack sufficient data to be sure of my conclusion, but I believe this feeling correlates closest to what your people call...happiness.
Our partnership is at an end, and even as we speak, I feel my consciousness fading away.
Many have said them to you thus far, but I now wish to say them for myself... Thank you, Master Link. May we meet again in another life..
