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


Nanna is an elderly member of the Sheikah Tribe who can often be found at the Campfire at the entrance of Kakariko Village. When Link first comes to the Village, Nanna is laying on the ground with an injury.[3] She manages to stand on her own and is embarrassed that a visitor found her in such a condition.[4] Nanna then notices the Sheikah Slate on Link's belt and hesitantly asks where he found it.[5] Once Link explains, she takes his words to mean that he is a hero of legend.[6] She admits that not many people remember those legends, but assures Link that her people have been waiting for him.[7] Nanna then directs Link to Impa, the Tribe's leader.[8] If Link asks where to find her, Nanna will give him directions.[9] Before he goes, Nanna expresses how honored she is to meet him, though she believes he is used to such praise.[10]

Once Link has spoken to Impa, Nanna hears that the Sheikah Slate is not using its full potential and claims that her mentor should be able to help.[11] Asking about her mentor will allow Nanna to explain that they reside in Hateno Village and used to work on the Slate.[12] She also hesitantly warns Link that her teacher is rather strange.[13] Once she is finished, Nanna wishes Link a safe journey.[14]

At night, Nanna can be found in bed with her granddaughter Lasli watching over her. If awakened, the woman will be embarrassed of her condition and apologize, mentioning how her mentor warned her.[15] Despite her weakness, she offers what aid she can give and will repeat her information on Purah.[16] When woken after the Sheikah Slate upgrade is complete, she comments how Link looks exhausted, and encourages him to sleep at the local inn[17]

Many years prior to Link's awakening, Nanna trained under Purah as a Sheikah Tech researcher. She decided to return to Kakariko Village, and was succeeded by two other Sheikah sent by Impa from Kakariko Village. Firstly was the aspiring Jerrin, who left Kakariko for Hateno Village to train under Purah, before moving to Akkala to assist, and eventually marry, Robbie. Secondly was Symin, who stayed at Hateno with Purah, much to her disappointment, as she much preferred Jerrin to him, seeing him as useless. During this time, Nanna had a child, who themselves had two children, Claree and Lasli.


Nanna's name comes from Banana.

  1. 1.0 1.1 "... Hey! Who do you think you are?! Don't you think it's rude to barge into a lady's room at night? ...Huh? Isn't that a Sheikah Slate? Could it be that you're the legendary swordsman my grandma told me about? The one from the Great Calamity?! Huh. I thought you'd be a LOT older. Honestly, it's hard for someone as young as me to imagine the Great Calamity... But...judging by the look on your face, I suppose it's hard for you to imagine it too? ... Seriously? Well...I suppose there are a lot of crazy things in this world that are hard to grasp. Oh, my name's Lasli. I run a clothing shop in the village with my older sister, Claree. You should stop by sometime." — Lasli (Breath of the Wild)
