Breath of the Wild

Sayge lives in Hateno Village with his wife Senna and his son Sefaro. He runs the Kochi Dye Shop and it is also where the entire family lives. Sayge and Senna have bunk beds on the main floor, with Senna taking the lower bunk. Although Sayge never actually goes to sleep as he mans the shop 24-hours a day.

Sayge is the enthusiastic owner of the Kochi Dye Shop, constantly laughing and making jokes about how at the Kochi Dye SHop, we live to dye.[1] He regularly makes color jokes, such as stating that Link is a pigment of his imagination.[2] He also makes jokes with the word, stating that every day is a good day to dye.[3] For the cost of 20 rupees, as well as a particular dye ingredient, Link is able to change the color of some of his wardrobe.

Sayge is very happy that somebody as young as Link is interested in getting his clothes dyed, as he has made it his duty to assure young people don't lost interest in the tradition.[4] Sayge explains that in the past, the Kochi Dye Shop provided all of the items necessary for a customer to dye its clothes. However, with the large quantity of monsters that are prevalent in the world, it has become much more difficult to acquire ingredients. So now, customers bring their own ingredients to the shop and there is a small 20 rupee service charge.[5]

When Link wants to dye his clothes, Sayge will have Link go and wait up at the top of the steps.[6][7] At this point Link is able to change his clothes or choose the color at which he'd like to dye his clothes. After choosing your color, Sayge will drop Link into the tank below, at which point Link's outfit will be dyed to the chosen color.[8][9]

After Link has dyed his clothes, he can talk to Sayge to change the clothes back to their original color.[10] Although if you've never dyed your clothes, Sayge will encourage you to get started on it.[11]
