However, his house is surrounded by many [[Giant Ghini]]s that prevent the Links from entering. In order to enter Dampe's home, the Links must stand on four separate switches to light up the torches, defeating the Giant Ghinis. When the Links enter his house, Dampe warns them that it is dangerous outside, so the Links shouldn't be wondering around the graveyard. Recently, a [[Shadow Link|shadowy guy]] has been stirring up trouble recently who looks just like the Links. Dampe tells them his name and explains he is supposed to be the caretaker of the graveyard, but he cannot take care of anything right now and is helpless as the creatures that have overrun the area are pleased and treat [[Hyrule]] like their new home. Dampe then demands the Links to listen to a legend. According to the legend, a [[Dark Tribe]] were sealed away into a [[Dark Mirror|mirror]] long ago in which the mirror is supposed to be somewhere in the [[Lost Woods (Four Swords Adventures)|Forest of Light]]. However, the forest has been covered by pitch-black clouds recently, being a Forest of Dark now.

As a result of this, he fuses the [[Kinstone]]s he digs up with the local ghosts.{{Ref|TMC|661|Figurine Description}} When Link first talks to Dampé, he introduces himself and explains that he is the gravedigger. Dampé proceeds to ask him about what Link mentioned about being called to the Royal Valley by the [[King Gustaf|ghost of a king]]. He informs Link that the ghost is an ancient king of Hyrule who rests there and explains that he has also seen the ghost. As a result of thinking how the king has called Link, Dampé cannot see any reason not to let him in, giving Link the [[Graveyard Key]].{{Ref|TMC|1728|Dampé}} Once Link leaves Dampé's house and gets the Graveyard Key stolen by a [[crow]], Dampé can be found at the gate to the rest of the Royal Valley. When talked to, Dampé asks Link if a crow took the key and flew off into a tree. He then yells for him not to just stand around as the crow will yield get away. Dampé urges Link to charge at the tree if Link wants the key back. {{Ref|TMC|1729|Dampé}} After Link has reacquired the Graveyard Key from the crow, Dampé tells him that he will open the gate for Link and advices for him to be careful in there.{{Ref|TMC|1730|Dampé}}  If Link talks to Dampé after he opens the gate, he gives directions of left, left, left, up, up, and up, but he forgets the last turn,{{Ref|TMC|1731|Dampé}} turning out to be directions for a secret path to the [[Lost Woods]]-like forest in the Royal Valley that leads to 200 [[Mysterious Shell]]s or 100 Rupees if he has collected every [[Figurines|figurine]]. After Link has completed the [[Royal Crypt]], he is able to [[Kinstone Fusion|fuse]] Kinstones with Dampé.

Once he has fused Kinstones with Dampé once, Link is able to come back and fuse again. However, Link needs to fuse a Green Kinstone with Dampé this time, and when he performs the Kinstone fusion, a crack forms in the ground in [[Wind Ruins]] that leads to a chest containing a red Kinstone piece. {{Figurine|id=026|[Piece [Dampé]]|fig026.gif|The gravedigger at the cemetery.
