Librari
This Town Minish elder is Gentari's
twin brother. Those large wings that he
is so proud of are trophies from a duel
with a cucco as a young Minish.

Librari is the elder of the Town Minish. He lives inside a book in the Royal Hyrule Library in Hyrule Town, and is the twin brother of the Forest Picori elder Gentari.

The Minish who lives near the Temple of Droplets says that Librari used Flippers to travel into the Temple. When Link speaks to Librari, he is sent down a hole where he passes a trial to obtain the Flippers, allowing him to swim and dive. Librari's feather comes from a Cucco he fought when he was younger.[5]

Other Appearances
