Dampé the gravekeeper gives the Graveyard Key to Link while he is traveling about the Royal Crypt region of Hyrule.[3] As Link steps out of Dampé's house a Crow steals it. By disturbing the Crow and knocking the Key loose from its Tree in this same area, Link is able to reacquire the key and open the locked gate.
