Zauz is a character in Phantom Hourglass.
Zauz is the blacksmith who helps Link by forging the Phantom Sword used to defeat Bellum. The Phantom Sword is made of three Pure Metals, which Link must collect by befriending the island natives and delving through their respective temples. Zauz tells Link to return in time, as the forging of the Phantom Sword is a lengthy process. After Link defeats Jolene one last time, Zauz will have finished the Sword upon returning to his island.
Zauz provides Link a secret that proves to help him navigate further into the Temple of the Ocean King. By drawing an ancient symbol on a particular red door on one of the temple's many levels, he will be able to access an entirely different temple floor, and by extension, the remaining two Sea Charts.
When Zauz first speaks to Ciela, he indicates that he is not human; later dialog suggests he is of the Cobble race, which defended the Ocean King. He shares dark skin and a large, oddly-colored nose with King Mutoh and his Knights.
