The Old Wayfarer is an explorer from Phantom Hourglass. He originally lived on Molida Island with his wife and son, Romanos, but traveled to the Isle of Gust before finally settling down on Bannan Island. He has dedicated his entire life to finding a mermaid, and is completely obsessed with them.

Side Quests

The Mermaid Sidequest

Jolene's sister, Joanne, has a hobby of dressing up like a mermaid. If Link convinces her to go to the Old Wayfarer's hut and pretend to be a real mermaid, the Old Wayfarer will in turn give Link a Fishing Rod in reward for helping him "find" his life's goal. If Link later goes out and catches a Loovar fish, he will reward him with a Big Catch Lure, allowing him to catch bigger fish.

Trading Sequence

The Old Wayfarer also holds a part in the Trading Sequence. If Link trades him a Wood Heart, he will give him the Swordsman's Scroll.
