- "I am Adlar. For fifty years, I was a palace advisor, but I have since been chased from the palace and am now retired."
- — Adlar
Adlar worked as a palace advisor for fifty years. During the events of Oracle of Ages, however, Nayru, being possessed by Veran, arrives at Queen Ambi's Palace and suggests Adlar be banished. Agreeing with Nayru, Queen Ambi sends Adlar away. Despite this, Adlar shows no hard feelings towards Queen Ambi or Nayru and realizes something must be wrong. As a result, he gives Link advice at various points in his quest. After freeing Ambi of Veran's control, Adlar tells Link that she has left on an "eye-opening journey to other lands," foreshadowing her appearances in a linked Oracle of Seasons game.
