Daval is a character found in Tears of the Kingdom.

Tears of the Kingdom

Daval works alongside Ponnick and can be seen near the Hyrule Field Chasm. The two are both part of the Zonai Survey Team. Daval will get startled and yell at Link if Link talks to him while pearing over the chasm.[1][2][3] Falling into the chasm would be a disaster, not only for him, but for the whole chasm investigation team. An accident like that might halt research.

Daval holds Josha with great regard and wants to advance the research in chasms for her.[4] He mentions that Josha can be found at Lookout Landing, which is the base of operations for the team.[5]

Camera Work in the Depths

Main article: Camera Work in the Depths

After speaking with Robbie and Josha at Lookout Landing, this will begin the Camera Work in the Depths quest. When Link makes his way over to the Hyrule Field Chasm, he'll see Daval looking over the edge, down into the Chasm. Daval is wondering if Robbie is okay down there. This serves as a hint that Robbie did travel down this chasm and Link should follow suit.



  1. "WH-WHOA! Hey, buddy! What's the big idea! You can't just walk up behind someone who's standing on the edge of a chasm! For one thing, a nasty accident like that would surely halt the research here! Chasm investigation is super important right now for the Zonai Survey Team. If even one researcher had to stop, Josha—who's hard at work on plans over at Lookout Landing—would cry! NOT OK!" — Daval, Tears of the Kingdom
  2. "Don't startle me again! I'm hard at work investigating, despite this rain." — Daval, Tears of the Kingdom
  3. "Hey! I told you! Don't sneak up behind someone when they're standing at the edge of a chasm!" — Daval, Tears of the Kingdom
  4. "You know, the giant holes that showed up after the Upheaval. There are lots of them just like this one all over the world. You can't see the bottom, they're so deep—so filled with MYSTERY. We must continue our research for the sake of our dear Josha!" — Daval, Tears of the Kingdom
  5. "See that tower over there? That's where you'll find our base of operations and, incidentally, Josha. Oh, also... Don't startle me again!" — Daval, Tears of the Kingdom
