Biography

The Minish Cap

Dina is a teacher at Funday School in Hyrule Town in The Minish Cap, along with her twin Tina.[2] Throughout the game, she stands in front of the School and will not let Link through,[3] citing the important lessons going on inside,[4] such as Hyrulean literature and math.[5][6]

After Link obtains the Water Element from the Temple of Droplets and sees the spirit of Gustaf for the first time, Funday School lets the children out for recess and the building becomes accessible.[7]

Breath of the Wild

Dina is a young Gerudo who attends Ashai's classes in Gerudo Town in Breath of the Wild. If Link speaks to Dina in the classroom in the barracks before or during Ashai's relationship class begins, she asks Link for his opinion of her lipstick.[8] Dina then explains that the color of lipstick is important in bringing good luck.[9] If Link asks how the color affects luck, Dina stutters nervously and says that she is learning that next.[10] If Link says it looks good on her, Dina exclaims that she can feel the lipstick working already.[11] During the relationship class, Ashai asks the class what to do when a "handsome voe" approaches them on the street.[12] Dina is the second to stand up and share her solution, saying that she would enthusiastically greet the man and approach with her hands empty.[13] Ashai praises Dina for her optimistic approach,[14] adding that friendliness is a great way to relax others.[15]

If Link speaks to Dina while she is attending Ashai's cooking class at night, she complains that she is only able to cook Dubious Food.[16] If Link asks her about Dubious Food, she explains that adding insects or monster parts to a meal causes it to become Dubious Food.[17] Dina feels that there is nothing dubious about how inedible Dubious Food is.[18] Dina says that the quickest way to someone's heart is through their stomach.[19] If Link attempts to read Chef Aurie Taamu, Vol. 2 while Dina is at the class, she will notice that the book is too high up for him to read and offer to read it for him.[20]
