Biography

Fi's Comment

A report, master.

Nackle

His name is Nackle. He is a member of a highly civilized race of moles called the Mogma. All Mogmas have a deep and abiding love of treasure.

Nackle is a blue-haired Mogma. When Link enters Eldin Volcano, he can dig Nackle out of his burrow with the Digging Mitts, frightening the Mogma.[1] Nackle then dismisses Link, stating that it is impossible to stop digging when what could be found is unknown.[2] He tells Link about what he might find while digging with the Digging Mitts.[3] The Mogma encourages the hero to dig whenever there is an opportunity.[4] If Link speaks to Nackle again, he will warn Link about red, blobby things that will sometimes come from burrows.[5]

Nomenclature

Nackle's name is derived from the metal nickel.
