Estragon is a character featured in The Crystal Trap who served as the mentor and teacher of Princess Zelda sometime in the past.[1]


Princess Zelda encounters Estragon at the Tavern after mistaking him for one of Ganon's spies since his face was covered by his hood.[1] Once Estragon removes his hood, he informs her that there are real spies of Ganon lurking about and that he already knows about Zelda's quest.[2] Curious, Zelda asks if he knows how to get the Magic Honey from Conly the beekeeper. Estragon gives her a small flask containing the sap of the fairy flower tree, which the beekeper uses to make his favorite drink.[3] Although Zelda begs Estragon to go with her, the old man declines, saying he is too old for adventures. Before departing the tavern, Zelda embraces her old friend and heads for the Beekeeper's Hut.[4]

  2. "'A weary princess,' the man answers and lets his hood fall away from his face. 'Estragon!' Zelda cries. 'My old teacher. I thought you were Ganon's spy.' Estragon nods his gray head and smiles. 'At least you haven't forgotten everything,' he says. 'Now sit down. There are real spies of Ganon lurking about.'"  (The Crystal Trap (Archway) pg. 7)
  3. "Zelda starts to tell her tale but Estragon has already heard. 'You always knew when I was in trouble,' she says. 'Do you know how I can get the magic honey?' 'With this,' he replies and places a small flask on the table. 'The sap of the fairy flower tree. The beekeeper uses it to make his favorite drink.'"  (The Crystal Trap (Archway) pg. 49)
  4. "Zelda puts the flask in her pouch. 'Come with me, Estragon,' she begs. 'I need your help.' 'No, child,' the old man says gently. 'I'm too old for adventures. But ask the beekeeper for help. He can get you to Link in time to undo the spell.' Zelda embraces her old friend and heads for the beekeeper's hut."  (The Crystal Trap (Archway) pg. 8)
