A Link to the Past
In A Link to the Past, the Loyal Sage is an old man who resides in the Sanctuary of Hyrule. He guards Princess Zelda and stays with her after Link rescues her from the Hyrule Castle dungeon and brings her to the Sanctuary. However, while Link is obtaining the Master Sword from the Lost Woods, the Loyal Sage is mortally wounded when soldiers attack the Sanctuary and kidnap the princess. As he is dying, the Loyal Sage tells Link that Princess Zelda was taken to Hyrule Castle so Agahnim could use her to open the Seven Sages's Seal. Soon afterwards, the Sage disappears.
A Link Between Worlds
In A Link Between Worlds, the Priest is the father of Seres, one of the Seven Sages, and is the chosen caretaker of the Sanctuary. He seems to be a spiritual successor to the Loyal Sage from A Link to the Past, and his Lorulean counterpart is known as the Philosopher.
