Biography

Adlar in his house

Adlar lives in Lynna Village in the past, on the west side of the river that flows through town. He was the adviser to Queen Ambi for 50 years,[1] as well as her friend from the time she was a child,[4] however, when the Possessed Nayru arrived, Ambi stopped listening to his advice.[5] Shortly after, Nayru suggested that Adlar be banished,[6] and he was chased from the palace.[7] He gives Link helpful advice when he first visits the village, and wishes him well on his quest, as he understands that something is wrong.[8]
