The Captain is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.


A Link Between Worlds



The Captain first appears in the Blacksmith's Forge to collect his new Sword and Shield from the Blacksmith. In the process of examining the Shield, he uncharacteristically forgets about his Sword and leaves the shop without bringing it with him.[2][1] Link is sent on an errand to return the Sword to the Captain, eventually finding him at the Sanctuary. However as Seres leaves to fetch the Captain, her scream is heard and the doors to the Sanctuary are locked. After Link finds another way into the Sanctuary through the cemetery's underground passage, he learns that the Captain and Seres have been turned into Paintings by Yuga.[3][4]

During the ending credits, it is shown that the Captain has been returned to normal following Yuga's defeat, and that Link has returned his Sword to him.

Dampé mentions that the Captain often visits the Sanctuary to talk with the Priest, Seres' father, but is aware that he only visits to have an excuse to see Seres.[5]



The Lorulean Captain is found drinking at the Milk Bar in Thieves' Town. Like his counterpart, he works for the Royal Family, and seems to be stationed in Thieves' Town. However with the condition of the land and its people, he stays at the bar only to complain about the poor state of their kingdom and blame those responsible.[6] His actions seem to indicate that he is trying to drink his problems away.

Tri Force Heroes

In Tri Force Heroes, the Captain in the Coliseum is the same character from A Link Between Worlds.[7]
