Cawlin's Letter is an item in Skyward Sword.[1]

Location and Uses

Cawlin's Letter is a love letter written by Cawlin to Karane. If Link walks near the restroom in the Knight Academy at night, he will hear a mysterious moaning.[2] If he tries to open the door, someone inside will ask for paper.[3] Later, Link can talk to Cawlin near the restroom to receive his letter, which he must deliver to Karane.[4][5] If Link looks towards the restroom, Cawlin will reprimand him for thinking of using it as toilet paper.[6]

If Link delivers the letter to Karane, she will jokingly consider going out with Cawlin and then wonder what Pipit thinks.[7] Following this, if Link tells Pipit about the letter, he will interrupt a meeting between Karane and Cawlin and proclaim his love for her.[8][9] Afterwards, Karane accepts his love, causing Cawlin to run away crying. Pipit then gives Link five Gratitude Crystals for helping them get together.[10] Cawlin can later be found crying in Groose's room.

Link can alternatively give the letter to Phoeni. Afterwards, she can be found in Groose's room, stroking Cawlin while he sleeps, having been moved by the letter he wrote.[11] She will then give Link five Gratitude Crystals for helping her fall in love with Cawlin.
