The Island Chief is a character in Phantom Hourglass.[2]


The Island Chief is the leader of the Anouki tribe, who lives on the Isle of Frost.[3] He promises Link that he will let him into the Temple of Ice if he can find the Yook in the village who has disguised himself as an Anouki, and causes an uproar in the village.[4] The Island Chief gives Link a hint to find the Anouki: Yooks always lie.[5]

  1. "You, guy! Somethin' wrong? Go stop in on the Island Chief. That's what he's there for. Stopping in." — N/A (Phantom Hourglass)
  2. Encyclopedia (Dark Horse Books), pg. 283 (PH)
  3. "You, guy! I'm the island chief of the Anouki. Ya got a name, green guy? What'd ya say?! Link abou? So Link -abou, my tribe's been having this trouble lately. I thought maybe you'd take care of it for us. What's that ya say? You're saying your name's actually Link? Ya sure about that, guy? All right, all right, whatever ya say. Anyway, ya wanna know about the Azurine, right? I scratch your fur, you scratch mine?" — Island Chief (Phantom Hourglass)
  4. "We Anouki have got one enemy on this island. They're the Yook. There was a lot of bad blood between our ancestors. So 100 years ago, we made an agreement. The Anouki live in the west... And those hairy Yook live over in the east on the Great Ice Field. That was the deal, but now some tricky Yook has snuck over here. And he's taken one of my villagers! Now he's pretending to be him and living with us! ...All comfortable-like! And, now we come to the part where I need something from ya. Find the Yook who's impersonating a villager, and kick him OUT! Did ya get all that? Do I have to repeat myself?" — Island Chief (Phantom Hourglass)
  5. "Yeah? All right. Go to the Anouki Estates up north, Link. When you get there, ya gotta figure out which guy is actually the Yook! Yook are liars. Every one of them. This one'll lie to ya, so don't be gullible! Maybe if ya find him, I might tell ya where the Azurine is. Just saying..." — Island Chief (Phantom Hourglass)
