Main appearance(s)

Gartan is a character in Breath of the Wild.[citation needed]


Gartan can be found traveling around on foot in the Gerudo Desert, selling his wares.[1] He enjoys being a merchant because it gives him an excuse to talk to the Gerudo.[2] Gartan can also be found at the Gerudo Canyon Stable, where he tells Link that he wishes more Gerudo ladies would come to the Stable.[3][4] Gartan sometimes mutters about his determination to get into Gerudo Town and get close to the ladies.[5] When Gartan notices Link listening, he tells Link that he was just muttering about "important business secrets."[6] While Link speaks to Gartan at the Kara Kara Bazaar, Gartan is excited about making small talk with the Gerudo there.[7] Gartan then says that it is just part of his job to make friends and asks Link if he wants some Apples.[8]

If Link speaks to Gartan near Gerudo Town, he catches him muttering to himself that there must be a way into the Town.[9] When Gartan notices that Link is listening, he is startled and nervously explains that he was just thinking out loud to nobody.[10][11]
