Tortus is a character mentioned in Majora's Mask.

Biography

Tortus was Anju's father and the son of her Grandmother and Gampy. By the time the events in Majora's Mask occur, Tortus is already deceased.[1] His name is only known because Anju's Grandmother often calls Anju and Link by the name "Tortus."[2] Anju must constantly remind her Grandmother that Tortus is no longer alive,[3] but she never appears to fully understand.[4] However, there are a few hints in the game, such as in the Grandmother's Diary, that suggest she might be faking her senility, and may find mentioning Tortus the way she does a convincing way of maintaining this illusion.[5][6]
