Biography

Hyrule

The Hyrulean Bard spends his time in the Milk Bar in Kakariko Village. One of the Milk Bar Musicians alongside the Flute Boy, he will play one of 16 songs, chosen at random, for a fee of 10 Rupees.[3] He is a friend of the Flute Boy and explains to Link that the child dislikes speaking to strangers.[4]

Lorule

The Lorulean Bard resides in the Milk Bar of Thieves' Town. He asks Link if he had met the boss of the town, but states he would not waste any time on him. He mentions that the boss is busy stashing away the Painting he got, which the Bard figures must be worth a fortune. He also knows about the Thief Girl, who was imprisoned after discovering the Painting. Inspired by the recent events in town, he had composed a small song and asks Link if he wants to hear it.[5] The song he sings contains part of the rhyme needed to enter the Thieves' Hideout.[6]
