Mallara spends most of her time at home, but, despite being there all the time, never bothers to clean it. After completing the Lanayru Mining Facility, she will ask Link to clean it for her by using the Gust Bellows to blow away all the dust. If he does, he will receive five Gratitude Crystals the first time he completes the task. From that point on she will pay Link 20 Rupees to clean the house. She will ask Link not to tell Pipit this, however.
If Link returns at night, he will unintentionally overhear Pipit reprimanding at her for spending his hard-earned money, which she could use to buy bread, on having someone else do a job she could do herself. However, undeterred, she will continue to ask Link to clean for her. Once the chore is completed, Link can speak to her to acquire his 20 Rupees, or choose to leave, in essence doing the job for free, though there is no benefit to doing so.
Mallara's name is derived from mallard, a wild duck.
