He works for Gaepora, the headmaster of the academy, who is also the father of Zelda, Link's close friend. Eagus can always be found in the Sparring Hall, located near the main dormitory of the Knight Academy. During the early parts of the game, Link goes to Eagus on request for a sword. In return, he gives him the Practice Sword to borrow. Eagus will always be willing to let Link practice in his hall, offering many different obstacles that Link must slash strategically to defeat. He will often encourage Link calling him a fast learner and a good student.
