Kagoron is a Goron that appears in Spirit Tracks.[2]

Biography

Kagoron is the Mountain Goddess's messenger. He is found on the north mountain in Goron Village, praying for the nearby volcano to calm.[1]

Upon Link arriving at the Mountain Goddess's altar, Kagoron will commend the young hero for his bravery, but will also inform him that the altar is a sacred place for Gorons.[3] After Link asks him how to access the Fire Sanctuary,[4] Kagoron notices that Link is a Royal Engineer,[5] and asks the young hero to descend the mountain with him.[6] Upon returning to Goron Village, the Mountain Goddess's messenger gives Link a Freight Car to help him haul Mega Ice from the Anouki Village in order to put out the fires at Goron Village.[7] Once Link has access to Dark Ore Mine, Kagoron will send him a Letter with a map leading to a Treasure in the Mine.[8]

Nomenclature

Kagoron's name is likely a portmanteau of the Japanese word, 鍵 (Kagi), and Goron. This is reflected in his appearance, and that of his storage house containing the Freight Car, which are both covered in markings resembling keys.

Hope to see you soon!" — Kagoron (Spirit Tracks)
