Schule Donavitch is a character from Link's Awakening. He is a red alligator artist who lives in the Animal Village, painting the portrait of a Hippo Model.


Schule Donavitch is the sculptor of The Mourning Mermaid found near Martha's Bay.[1] His brother is Sale, the owner of Sale's House O' Bananas on Toronbo Shores.[2]


  • In the German version of Link's Awakening, Sale mentions that his brother is collecting old toothbrushes.[3]
  • In the French version of Link's Awakening, Sale mentions that his brother is younger than him.[4]


Schule's German name, Kroko Dilius, is a pun, as the pronunciation is equal to Krokodilius. In the French version, his name is Sven Donavitch, while his signature name on The Mourning Mermaid is Alligodali, which is a cross between the word "Alligator" and the name of the famous artist, Salvador Dalí.
