A report, master.

Jakamar

This is Jakamar, Skyloft's resident middle-aged romantic repairman. He is tasked with maintaining the island's structures.

He considers himself an artist. His best work is said to be a scene showing off Skyloft's colorfully tiled houses.

Jakamar is a repairman who keeps many of the structures in Skyloft in shape. According to his wife, Wryna, he has a habit of roaming around town.[4] Together they have a daughter named Kukiel.

Before the Wing Ceremony, he can be found fixing the gate to the Bazaar.[5] He reminds Link to save by sending his prayers to the Goddess by using Bird Statues.[6] He also tells Link that if he wins the Wing Ceremony, he will be promoted to senior class, and eventually become a Rescue Knight.[7] When asked if he has seen Link's missing Crimson Loftwing, he tells the young hero that he saw Groose's bird chasing it.[8] He also informs Link that Groose is likely in the center of Skyloft and asks the young hero to go around through the Knight Academy to get there, since he is still working on the gate.[9]

Later, after Kukiel goes missing, Jakamar sets out to look for her.[10] After Link finds her, Jakamar thanks the young hero before mentioning that he would like to visit the Lumpy Pumpkin if he did not have to fix Wryna's cupboard.[11]

Jakamar can later be found by the eastern windmill in Skyloft, commenting on its ability to catch the wind regardless of its direction.[12] He informs Link that it is missing its Propeller, and that it fell below the Cloud Barrier long ago,[13] but adds that he could repair it if he had the Propeller, despite it being lost beneath the clouds forever.[14] Jakamar then remembers Gondo's flying robot, claiming that it was said to haul junk from beneath the clouds before dismissing it.[15] If Link gets Scrapper to bring the Propeller from Eldin Volcano to him, he will be surprised that the stories of the robot were true and that it was able to return the lost Propeller.[16] However, he believes it is all just a clever prank, but proceeds to fix the windmill.[17] Once the windmill has been fixed, Link can use the Gust Bellows on it to make it and the other windmill face the Light Tower, which will release a beam that guides the young hero to Thunderhead once he plays his Harp on it.

Jakamar's house contains a workbench with tools and a toolbox on it. His bed is also built for three people, indicating that he, Wryna and Kukiel all sleep on it.

Nomenclature

Jakamar's name is derived from the Jacamar bird.

  5. ↑ "Mornin', Link. How's life? Did you manage to get even a wink of sleep last night? Figured you might've been tossin' and turnin' all night thinkin' about the big ceremony today. What am I doin'? Oh, just fixin' this gate here... It's been squeaky lately, and we can't have that on the day of the ceremony!" β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  6. ↑ "Hey, you haven't already forgotten to send your prayers to the goddess this morning, have you? Just face the bird statue over there, and say a short prayer to save your progress. As you know, those bird statues are all over Skyloft. It's about time you get in the habit of stoppin' at a statue every time you run by one. A prayer in time saves nine, if you know what I'm sayin'!" β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  7. ↑ "All set for today's big Wing Ceremony? If you come away with a win, you'll move on up to the senior class. Then after you graduate, you get to be a rescue knight. Those knights sure do keep order here in Skyloft, and I don't have to tell you that it's a pretty big deal to become one. I'd like to see you make it." β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  8. ↑ "Is something wrong? What's the big hurry? What?! Your Loftwing is missing?! But I just saw him. Groose's bird was chasing off after your feathered fella." β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  9. ↑ "Uh, I think...uh... Well, to be honest, I don't really know where they went. Oh, Groose and his little cronies were saying they were headed down to the Wing Ceremony. So my guess is they might be in town. Normally, the fastest way there is just down this path... But this gate here still needs some work before it'll open. Can you go around through the academy?" β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  10. ↑ "Honeeeeey! Honeeeey? Oh no! I think I might've promised my wife I'd fix our cupboard! I swear that woman's always looking for somebody. Oh, no! I just remembered I'm supposed to be looking for Kukiel! [...] If you happen to see Kukiel, let me know, all right?" β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  11. ↑ "Thank you so much for tracking down Kukiel, Link! It's such a gorgeous day today too. On a day like today, there's nothing I'd love more than to head over to the Lumpy Pumpkin for a sip of soup. But of course my wife asked me to fix the cupboard, so I'm not going anywhere. Sigh... The story of my life..." β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  12. ↑ {{Cite|So you're curious about that windmill, eh? Pretty smart design, I gotta say. See, you can turn the windmill so that it can always catch the wind no matter which way it's blowing.
  13. ↑ "But... Well, there used to be this little propeller attached to the windmill so that you could turn it. The thing flew off ages ago. It must have dropped down off the edge, down beneath the clouds. The windmill's been uselessly sitting there ever since." β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  14. ↑ "You wanna know if I could fix the windmill if you brought back the propeller? Well, if I had the propeller, I could probably rig something together to get it back on there, sure... But how would you even go looking for the propeller in the first place? Once something falls through the clouds, it's gone for good." β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  15. ↑ "...Hang on. Come to think of it, Gondo at the Scrap Shop told me that someone in his family once used a flying robot to haul junk back from beneath the clouds. But we're talking about a tale that's been passed down over a lot of years, so I wouldn't put much stock in it. Dredging things up from some mystical "world beneath the clouds" that doesn't even exist? Sounds like a lot of hot air. Gondo actually bought into the whole thing, though. That's why he's always tinkering with that busted old robot." β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  16. ↑ "Whoa! Isn't that...the beat-up old robot from Gondo's place?! Wait just a second... Is that... It is! That's the windmill propeller! That thing was supposed to have fallen down below the clouds! Are you saying that whole story handed down through Gondo's family was actually true?" β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
  17. ↑ "Hmm... Somehow I get the feeling this is all some elaborate prank, but I guess I'll try to fix this thing... This goes in here... And I just crank that a few clicks... Phew! That ought to do it! If you can find some way to spin the propeller, you can probably turn the windmill around." β€” Jakamar (Skyward Sword)
