Bipin is a tree planter who is knowledgeable about Gasha Seeds.[3][4] He lives in Horon Village in Oracle of Seasons and in Lynna City in Oracle of Ages with his wife, Blossom, and their newborn son, whose name is chosen by Link.[5]

As Link continues to help raise his son, Bipin will offer advice concerning Gasha Trees and their nuts and seeds.[6] Bipin is either seen with his family in their living quarters, or, when all is well with his son, on the east side of his house tending to his indoor Gasha farm.

Once a game is completed, Bipin and his family move to the next one, where they will meet Link again in the Linked Game.[7] In Oracle of Seasons, Bipin and his family will reside in southwestern Horon Village. In Oracle of Ages, they will reside in a house in the northern part of Lynna City.[8] There, their son continues to grow up and eventually becomes an adult.
