Baumar is a character in Breath of the Wild.[2]

Biography

Baumar is a Hylian who travels with his Horse, Bamboo,[1][3] while carrying a Fisherman's Shield and a Traveler's Sword. The pair travel a portion of the Hilltop High Road between Serenne Stable and Snowfield Stable.

When Baumar was a child, he almost got lost up in the Hebra Mountains.[4] While a shield surfer saved him, Baumar has trouble recall his name.[5] Falmark was the shield surfer, and he claims that surfing down the mountain with a child on his back was difficult.[6]

Baumar shows a lot of appreciation for Bamboo. He refers to his Horse with a lot of affectionate terms, such as "totally gnarly", "radical", and "most excellent".[7][8] He also offers directions as the two of them travel.[3] If Link overhears him talking to Bamboo, he will explain that he is not good at conversing with people.[9]

Baumar enjoys Shield Surfing, finding it difficult to go long times without doing so.[10][11] He claims to be talented, and he climbs the Hebra Mountains to Surf.[12] When he makes it to Snowfield Stable, Baumar is excited to head up the Hebra Mountains and finally go Shield Surfing.[13]

On the way to the Hebra Mountains, Baumar mentally prepares himself for Shield Surfing, and he becomes annoyed if Link interrupts him.[14] The legendary Shield Surfer, Selmie, supposedly had all of her routes memorized.[15] There is a rumor Baumar has heard that Selmie is waiting on the Hebra Mountains for a worthy opponent.[16][17]

If he is caught in the rain, Baumar will be disappointed disappointed that he can not shield surf.[18] While it is storming or snowing, Baumar wonders if professional shield surfers head out in this type of weather, confessing he would break his neck if he wiped out.[19]

Occasionally, Baumar will give Link a Shield Surfing tip. For example, depending on the type of Shield used, one's surfing will be different.[20] He knows of a Shield that is supposed to be good for Shield Surfing, which is the Knight's Shield, but he can not remember what it is called.[21] Additionally, he has heard of the Hylian Shield within Hyrule Castle, which is supposed to be durable.[22]
