A report, master.

Strich

His name is Strich and he is a tall and quiet student at the Knight Academy.

He is known for his interest in insects. He will even purchase insects if they interest him on that particular day.


After moving to Bug Rock

His name is Strich, and he is a tall and quiet student at the Knight Academy.

He is known for his interest in insects. Currently, in an attempt to finance his dream of an insect haven on this island, he runs a bug-catching game.

Strich is one of the students of the Knight Academy in Skyloft. Alongside his friends Groose and Cawlin, they have a reputation for being bullies. During the Wing Ceremony race, he and Cawlin will throw eggs at Link to help Groose win. Strich can be found in the Lumpy Pumpkin during the day, and in his and Cawlin's room at the Knight Academy at night. He has an affinity for insects and is willing to buy them from Link.[3][4] However, he will only buy three varieties of insects on any given night, according to his mood.[5]

Once Levias has been released from the control of the Bilocyte, Strich can be found on Bug Rock in the Thunderhead, where he runs a bug-catching mini-game called the Bug Heaven. When Beedle's Horned Colossus Beetle goes missing, Strich is revealed to have found it.[6] However, he refuses to return the bug unless Link collects 10 specific insects under three minutes.[7]
