Malo is a character who hails from Ordon Village in Twilight Princess.

Biography

Malo is the son of Jaggle and Pergie, and brother of Talo.[2] Like many other Ordonians, he has rounded ears instead of the typical pointed Hylian ears. Despite his infantile appearance, he is rather intelligent and entrepreneurial,[3][4] though quick to making blunt comments.[5][6]

After being rescued by Renado, Malo opens a shop in Kakariko Village, Malo Mart.[3] There, he sells such wares as the Hylian Shield and, eventually, the Hawkeye.[7] After completing the Goron Mines dungeon, some of the elders come down to ask for donations to repair the eastern bridge leading into Castle Town, totaling 1,000 Rupees.[8] Once it is paid off, they want to raise another 2,000 Rupees for buying Chudley's Fine Goods and Fancy Trinkets Emporium in Castle Town;[9] however, that hefty sum can drop down to 200 Rupees if Link helps out Gor Liggs's son first, by dousing him with hot spring water. Once Malo Mart has been set up in Castle Town, Link can buy the Magic Armor on sale for 598 Rupees, compared to its normal price of 100,000 Rupees. The other wares available in the Malo Mart Castle Branch (such as Arrows and Bombs) are also brought down to an affordable price.

Trophy Information

Malo Malo Trophy.png The brother of Ordon Village's "tough" kid, Talo. Malo is much more reserved than his troublemaker brother and is actually quite mature. This, combined with his almost babylike appearance, can make adults feel awkward. Despite his childlike looks, Malo becomes an esteemed businessman with his chain of Malo Marts. Random

Trivia

  • The dolls lying on the second floor of his parents' house bear resemblance to Beedle, a recurring character from The Legend of Zelda series.
  • When Link acquires and begins target practice with the Slingshot in front of the Ordon Village children, instead of shooting at the targets, he can shoot at the children, who will duck his shots. Malo, however, does not duck by bending at the knees and waist to avoid the shots, as Talo and Beth do; he instead lowers himself by bending backwards with his face looking skyward.

Etymology

Malo's name may be based on Malon, much like his brother's name, Talo, may be based on Talon.
