Tarin is the friendly father of Marin, the girl who finds Link washed up on the beach of Koholint Island in Link's Awakening. Like Talon, he has a large resemblance to Mario, and this resemblance is intentional, as the game has many nods to Mario games.[1] Tarin has a big interest in mushrooms. In the ending scene, Tarin can be seen picking mushrooms in the Mysterious Woods.

When Link wakes up at the beginning of the game, Tarin gives him his shield back. After Link retrieves his Sword, Tarin becomes lost in the Mysterious Woods and is transformed into a raccoon by eating a toadstool. Link breaks the curse by sprinkling Magic Powder on him, but Tarin later has no recollection of what happened to him and thinks it was a dream. Tarin is solely responsible for Link obtaining the Honeycomb being part of the trading sequence. When Link gives him the stick in Ukuku Prairie, Tarin knocks down the bee hive to which he is chased off by a swarm of angry bees.

    Marin and Tarin share a number of similarities with Malon and Talon introduced in Ocarina of Time (the next game in the series), which may indicate that Malon and Talon were based off of these two characters.

    Tarin also bears many similarities with Mario. Both sport similar dark hair, hair style, a large nose, mustache, red shirt and an affinity for mushrooms. He also transforms into a raccoon/tanooki at one point, a power Mario has in several of his games.

Marin (Daughter)

Tarin is the father of Marin in Link's Awakening. He lives with his daughter in a house in Mabe Village.

After Marin rescues Link after he washed up on the shores of Koholint Island, Tarin gives Link his shield, explaining that he knew it was his since Link's name was on it.[1] After that, he goes into the Mysterious Woods to find some mushrooms, but he is turned into a strange raccoon that claims to be the reason that Link can't find his way to the Tail Key.[2] Link returns him to normal by sprinkling some Magic Powder on him.[3] Tarin believes the whole thing was a dream.[4]

Later, Tarin takes the Stick from Link during the Trading Sequence in order to try and knock down a hive of bees.[5] When the bees begin chasing Tarin, Link can take the Honeycomb.[6]

In the DX version of the game, if Link approaches the Weathercock while traveling with Marin, the Photographer will line them up for a picture. However, Tarin will appear and insist on joining in the photo.[7]
