Rare Armor Collector
Granté is a character featured in Breath of the Wild. He later appears in Tears of the Kingdom, having changed his name to Grantéson in line with the Hudson Construction naming policy.
Breath of the Wild
He can be found on the balcony of the north-easternmost house in Tarrey Town, and he will sell Link various pieces of rare armor, as well as the Hylian Shield, if Link's breaks.
He will only sell certain pieces of armor once Link has previously obtained them, such as the Korok Mask.
Granté was born to the researcher couple Robbie and Jerrin in the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. His Sheikah mother gave him her blonde hair and blue eyes, traits uncommon to the race. Robbie even observes this in his Memoir. Like his parents, Granté studied ancient Sheikah technology, making a point of lighting the Ancient Furnace every day to train his body. Robbie wrote to Purah to see if Granté could study under her, but as she had physically regressed to six years old she responded simply with "Don't send anyone here!". Robbie then suggested that Granté should leave to travel across Hyrule; he did so that same day. Granté then began studying rare Armor.

Tears of the Kingdom
Granté reappears in Tears of the Kingdom. He now refers to himself as Grantéson so that he can work for Hudson Construction. As such, he has abandoned his traditional Sheikah outfit for the Hudson Construction uniform. His parents seem unaware of his nomen novum. Grantéson's role is to help Link build a new house.
- Granté's hair is very reminiscent of Sheik's.
- Granté only sells armor items that Link has obtained before and are not available in other armor shops. Also, he's the salesperson with the overall biggest inventory of armor, and the most expensive purveyor of goods per item in the whole game. However, Symin has the biggest inventory of items for sale, with hundreds of items for purchase, as well as a higher total price for said inventory, both with (45,200 Rupees) and without DLC (42800 Rupees) compared to Granté's (41,800 Rupees).
- Granté is the most expensive purveyor of armor in the game. Although the armors he sells can be obtained for free in the overworld, his duplicates of the Rubber Set, the Climber's Set and the Barbarian Set are 3-4 times more expensive than other armor available at shops all over Hyrule. However, only those three sets have said exorbitant prices.
- Granté does not sell amiibo armor items or weapons due to the fact that they can be obtained multiple times by rescanning the aforementioned amiibo.
