Chumin is a character in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Biography

Chumin is a traveling Hylian Merchant from Lurelin Village who travels with his Donkey along the Faron Highroad, where he sells fruits and Fish to other travelers.[2][3][4][5][6] He can be encountered walking back and forth from Lurelin Village to the Highland Stable to sell his products.[7] He sporadically rests under a tree near the Fishing Resort or at the Lakeside Stable as he travels. When he sits under an awning at Highland Stable, he attempts to attract customers.[8]

When spoken to, Chumin describes Lurelin Village as a simple, sleepy town.[9][10] He also makes reference to All or Nothing, calling it a traditional Treasure Chest game and saying it reminds him of his childhood.[11] When he is at Lurelin, he restocks his wares and claims to have won at All or Nothing.[12][13]

Chumin spends a lot of time traversing trade routes, where he sells his wares.[14] He has been traveling on the roads for years,[15] and he thinks he could even be a tour guide.[16] According to him, a lot of monsters hang around Highland Stable, so the area should be avoided.[17][18] Occasionally, Chumin will give Link directions to Lake Hylia and the Finra Woods.[19][20]

Chumin claims to have made many Rupees from satisfied customers.[21] The first time he entered the Faron Woods, he didn't have a map and ended up getting lost.[22][23] Chumin also mentions that, if he ever lost his Donkey, he is not sure if he could go on.[24] He takes rain as a sign to rest.[25]

Link can save Chumin from Enemies.[26][27][28] As a reward, he will give him Rupees.[29]

As he walks, Chumin tries to attract customers.[30][31][32][33][34] He assures his customers that he has a lot of top-choice merchandise.[35] When it is raining, he offers Hearty Blueshell Snails among his other products.[36] Not only does Chumin sell his own wares, he also purchases Items from Link.[37] He thanks Link whenever he makes a purchase.[38] When Link buys his whole stock, Chumin thanks him for doing business.[39]
