Karson is a character in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Link first meets Karson on the outskirts of Hateno Village when he is one of the men demolishing a house in Hateno Village. After Link purchases the house from Bolson and starts the Hylian Homeowner sidequest, Karson remains near the house with Bolson, sitting under a tree and helping his boss to construct various accessories and fitments for the house.

Karson later travels with Bolson to Tarrey Town to attend the wedding of his co-worker Hudson. If Bolson is talked to subsequently, he and Karson return to their spot near Link's house and do not leave again.

Tears of the Kingdom

Karson can be found at Lookout Landing. Early in the game he can be seen chopping wood to gather Building Materials. At first he seems too preoccupied to talk to Link as he is chopping wood, but once he realizes it is Link, he stops and is excited to see him. He encourages Link to go give Purah a visit.[1][2]

Karson can also be found in Lookout Landing, near the Southern Gate, pondering ideas for a Stable. He hopes to someday build a Mini Stable at the Lookout. He mentions that Lester has come to Lookout Landing to look after the horses and that it would be really helpful if there was a proper stable.[3]

The Incomplete Stable

Main article: The Incomplete Stable

After completing one Regional Phenomena, Link can speak with either Karson or Lester to begin The Incomplete Stable Side Quest. Lester will ask when the stable will be ready, in which Karson responds that it will still be awhile as he needs get the last of the roof planks properly fitted.[4][5] In talking to him, Karson wants to finish up construction, but isn't quite sure how to best fit the last roof plank in.[6]

Link is able to use Ultrahand and place the last roof plank right in its proper spot. Karson is delighted that it fits perfectly.[7] He thanks Link and says that now that the roof is complete, he can put the finishing touches on the stable.[8][9] After a few moments, Karson will finish up work and the mini-stable will be complete.[10][11][12] The stable will now be complete and Link can now speak with Lester to board horses.[13]

After completing the quest, Karson stands beside the mini-stable, admiring his work.[14] He encourages Link to use the stable to board his horses.[15]



  1. "Sorry, but I've got my hands full right now. If it's building materials you're after, I suggest you start by cutting a tree down. After that... Hey, hold on. I thought that might be you, Link! Wow, what a relief. You're safe. I was seriously worried about you. Where have you BEEN, anyway? Uh, sorry. Just relieved you're back. So, you know Purah's here, right? You gotta see her right away if you haven't yet. But wow, I can't even tell you how happy I am to see you here at Lookout Landing." — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  2. "Purah always keep it together, but I'm betting if she sees you, she'll probably lose her cool. Everyone's been worried since you and the princess disappeared. But Purah... she's been REALLY worried." — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  3. "I've been sorting out whether or not I can build a mini stable in Lookout Landing. Lester has come here to care for the horses. So it'd help him out a lot if he had a proper stable. The project would likely take me a while to complete. But once it's done, you'll be able to take full advantage, Link!" — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  4. "Karson, when do you think the stable will be ready?" — Lester, Tears of the Kingdom
  5. "It'll still be a while yet. I need to get the last of the roof planks correctly fitted. There's only one spot to finish." — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  6. "I want to finish up construction on the stable, but I'm not sure how best to tackle fitting this roof plank in..." — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  7. "Well look at that—it fits perfectly!" — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  8. "Thanks for helping out! I was having a hard time figuring out how to fit it. With the roof done, all that's left is to add the finishing touches! I'll get cracking. Son and done!" — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  9. "Quick and quality, blink and we're done. That's why everyson chooses Hudson Constructiooon. Okey dokes! Feeling pumped! Gonna get this done in one fell swoop." — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  10. "How's that!" — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  11. "Well, well. This is a fine-looking stable!" — Lester, Tears of the Kingdom
  12. "Can't say I'm surprised, considering you're Hudson Construction's number one." — Lester, Tears of the Kingdom
  13. "And thanks for your help with this little project, son. Looks great. Now we can board horses at Lookout Landing. If you need help with horses, please talk to me anytime." — Lester, Tears of the Kingdom
  14. "Pretty stellar craftsmanship, am I right? Gotta say, I've outdone myself this time! If you end up boarding your horses here, they'll have a luxurious time." — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
  15. "I've outdone myself with this stable, if I do say so myself. Please feel free to use it whenever you like, Link!" — Karson, Tears of the Kingdom
