Gentari is the wise elder of Minish Village in The Minish Cap, who reveals the main purpose of Link's quest: to reforge the Picori Blade with the Four Elements scattered and hidden across the land of Hyrule.[3][4]

Biography

When Link reaches Gentari's house, he will mark on Link's map where the Four Elements are hidden.[5] He guides Link towards the Earth Element by suggesting that he use the passageway through Festari's abbey to reach the Deepwood Shrine, where the first element is hidden;[6] he encourages Link to report back to him after securing it.[7] When Link finds it, Gentari will open some curtains at the side of his room, which leads through a passageway through to the outskirts of Minish Woods. Later in the game, fusing Kinstones with Gentari gives Belari the inspiration for the Remote Bombs.
