Biography

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, David Jr. stays at the top of Tingle Tower, where he works with Ankle. Despite this, he is not actually related to the Tingle Brothers.[3] According to him, he was originally a sailor who sailed the sea aimlessly, and ended up on Tingle Island after being shipwrecked by a storm one night.[4] However, according to his Figurine and the Prima Games guide, he was in search of the Ghost Ship's treasure which his father had found, and ended up at Tingle Island after feeling seasick.[5] He awoke wearing his current uniform, which he hates, and was forced to work for Tingle.[6] He looks very similar to Tingle, except he wears white, and he does not have rosy patches on his cheeks.

Birthplace: Windfall Island
Occupation: Treasure hunter
Seventeen-year-old David Jr. set out at sea with dreams of finding the treasure of the Ghost Ship that his now-deceased father once saw.
He gets seasick quite easily and was in just such a state when he awoke in a daze on Tingle Island.
Ankle told him that "self comes before wealth" and he's been working in the tower ever since. He really hates the uniform.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, David Jr. appears in Lake Hylia by the water south of Stockwell's vacation home. He is not enslaved and actually appeared to enjoy the company of his "brothers." When spoken to, David Jr. offers to fuse Kinstones with Link after recognizing him as "Mr. Fairy."[7] When Link successfully fuses Kinstones with him,[8] the southeastern most Tree in the group of four Trees in North Hyrule Field will open with a chamber containing a room with a Switch connected to a Torch and a Treasure Chest with 200 Mysterious Shells. David Jr. will also express surprise that they managed to fuse Kinstones, claiming to not expect it to work.[9] He also aids Link by informing him how many more Kinstone Fusions he has left to complete.[10] If spoken to afterwards, David Jr. will acknowledge that he is not related to Tingle or his brothers, and questions why he helps them.[11]
