Allan is a character in Oracle of Ages.[3]


On his way to the Spirit's Grave, Link overhears a group of young boys speaking in fear of a ghost.[4] Once the Power Bracelet is obtained in the dungeon nearby, Link can lift the rock blocking the entrance to the tomb and investigate for himself. Inside he discovers a Poe named Allan, who is harmless and simply wishes to have its headstone moved, as its actual self is trapped within the grave.[5] Using the Power Bracelet, Link is able to accord it the favor, allowing Allan to move on to the afterlife.[6] As thanks, it gives him its Poe Clock, which is the first item in the Trading Sequence.[7]


Allan's name is a play on the name of the famous writer, Edgar Allan Poe.
