Calyban is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[3][4]


Breath of the Wild

Calyban is a Gerudo woman who can first be found eating Hydromelons on top of the walls of Gerudo Town. If Link speaks to her, she will tell him that she cannot eat with Link staring at her and tells him to go away.[5][6]

Calyban plays a role in the Side Quest, "The Mystery Polluter", which begins with the Gerudo child, Dalia, crying because a water trough is unusable due to a flow of Trash in it.[7] Link will find Hydromelon rinds flowing down into the trough through the upper waterway and must follow where they are coming from to find the source of the pollution. This leads Link to Calyban, who is throwing the rinds into the waterway.

When Link talks to Calyban, she rudely insists that she can do what she wants.[8] Stating that altruism is for suckers,[9] Calyban refuses to stop eating melons unless Link brings her ten Wildberries.[10][11] Wildberries are often found in cold places, such as the Gerudo Highlands and Hebra Mountains.

Once Link has collected ten Wildberries and returns to give them to Calyban, she is amazed at how delicious they are.[12] Calyban says that she may stop eating other fruit entirely if she has Wildberries.[13] She then realizes how selfish she has been and leaves to go help Dalia clean up the melon rinds.[14][15]

When Link returns to Dalia, Calyban has already cleaned up her Trash and left.[16] Dalia gives Link a Hydromelon that was given to her by "the lady who cleaned it up" as a thank you for caring about her.[17] After the Side Quest, Link can find Calyban sitting in the shade nearby with Hydromelons and Hydromelon rinds. She says that she gave the Wildberries to Dalia to apologize and because she will always prefer Hydromelons.[18]
