The Happy Mask Salesman speaking of the Ancient Tribe
According to legend, the tribe used the wicked power of Majora's Mask in hexing rituals. The Ancient Tribe used Majora's Mask for incantations in the rituals, but they eventually sealed the mask into the darkness, so that it might never be misused. Evidently, they vanished leaving only the wicked Majora's Mask as their legacy.
