The Wind Waker
In The Wind Waker, Salvatore runs the Squid-Hunt minigame inside the lighthouse on Windfall Island, and also the Barrel Shoot minigame on Spectacle Isle. To fit in with the pirate-theme of his games, he introduces them with a routine in which he pretends to be Tetra or a fearsome pirate captain, using wooden cutouts which he pokes his face through, and putting on a pirate voice. Aside from when he's using the wooden cut-out pictures, he is very unenthusiastic about the job and always seems bored.

|Birthplace: Windfall Island|
Talent: Drawing pictures
Long ago, Salvatore hoped to be a famous painter, but that dream didn't last long. He eventually returned to his hometown and came up with his current business plan.
It's been a huge success, allowing him to purchase his own island, where he has opened up the second store in what he hopes will become a huge chain.
He's now busy trying to think up that one idea that will spark his next big endeavor.
Salvatore's name could be a reference to the famous Spanish painter Salvador Dalí, which would match his use of wooden cut-out paintings during the introduction of his games. "Salvatore" is a common name in Italy, and this is probably the reason why his name was changed only in the Italian language. The Italian name Arraffaele probably comes from the word "arraffare," which means "steal," and another common Italian name: Raffaele, which would also be a reference to a famous painter, the Italian Raphael.
