Birthplace: Windfall Island
Favorite Thing: Money
His hobby was once collecting expensive vases, but unfortunately, they were the kind of vase one wants to break as soon as one catches sight of them. Those who did and were forced to compensate him for his loss were said to regret it afterward.

Mila's Father is the father of Mila, who lives on Windfall Island in The Wind Waker.

When Link first meets him, Mila's father is a rich man who lives in the Auction House on Windfall. If Link visits the lower floor and breaks the expensive pots down there, he scolds him.[1] If Link does so again, Mila's father forces him to pay 10 Rupees per vase.[2][3]

However, if Link speaks to him on the upper floor of his home, Mila's father is revealed to be pacing around. Mila was taken away to the prison in Forsaken Fortress, and he cares for her very much and is quite worried.[4] He has asked many people to rescue her, but none have succeeded.[5] At last, he asks Link to do the job for him.[6] He promises to pay him, claiming that he would spend his entire fortune to save her.[7]

After Link rescues the girls from the fortress, Tetra and her pirate crew take Mila and ransom her to her father. He loses all of his money paying them for her release.[8] When Link next speaks with him, he is dressed in rags and complains about Link's failure without realizing that it actually was Link who saved her.[9]

He praises his daughter for her efforts to help their new situation, describing how she took a job at Zunari's Shop.[10] He also expresses his concern over how she often sneaks out at night.[11] Worried that she is doing something bad, he asks Link to find and stop her at night if he catches her in the act.[12]

After losing his fortune, Mila's father becomes a changed man, admitting that there are some things in the world better than money.[13] He says that he is happy at last.[14]

  2. "Do you think you can just break someone's vases and leave without paying for them? I must chortle at your naivete! Ho ho! Those happen to be extremely high-class bone-china vases that run a minimum of 10 Rupees each!" — Mila's Father, The Wind Waker.
  3. "...When you break someone else's vases, it's only natural that you compensate them for the loss! You, my boy, are in the wrong because of your destructive tomfoolery!
