Biography

Tho Kayu is a Sheikah Monk who serves the Goddess Hylia. Following the first Great Calamity and the ostracism of the Sheikah 10,000 years prior to Breath of the Wild, Tho Kayu became a Monk and constructed an Ancient Shrine to help prepare Link against the threat of Calamity Ganon.[3][1]

Following Link's Slumber of Restoration in the Shrine of Resurrection, the Tho Kayu Shrine is activated and can then be entered by someone bearing a Sheikah Slate.[4] When Link enters the Shrine, he is greeted by the Monk and is offered a blessing for overcoming the ordeal of entering the Shrine.[2] If Link speaks to the Monk, Tho Kayu praises him and rewards the Hylian Champion with a Spirit Orb.[5] With their role fulfilled, Tho Kayu wishes Link well as their body fades away.[6]
