"Sitting here is the chief's favorite sand seal, Patricia. But she's no ordinary sand seal... She's actually something of an oracle! If you offer fruit to Patricia by placing it before her, you'll receive some words of wisdom in return!"

Patricia is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. She is a Sand Seal owned by Riju at Gerudo Town in the Gerudo Desert region.


Patricia is Gerudo Chief Riju's favorite sand seal as she was a gift from Riju's late mother. Patricia is a special sand seal who acts as a oracle. By giving her an offering of fruit, Link will receive words of wisdom from Patricia which are translated by her caretaker, Padda. She is caring for Patricia when Riju is busy tending to important matters.

Patricia is apparently fond of "seal" based word puns, which Panna often omits while translating her words of wisdom and will mention that she spared Link from them. At one point, Patricia almost manages to sneak a pun past Panna, but Panna manages to catch it in time. However, Panna is unable to avoid translating at least one of her puns, "Seal the deal on your fortune by using more valuable fruit!". Padda reveals that it is rare for Patricia to give a pun free prophecy.

Patricia and Riju play a vital role in helping Link to reach the Divine Beast Vah Naboris, defeat Thunderblight Ganon and free Vah Naboris as well as the spirit of Gerudo Champion Urbosa from Calamity Ganon's control.

"This is Riju's own sand seal. It may look intense, but she dotes on it regularly; the ribbon it wears was a gift from her, and it even has its own pen in Gerudo Town. It's far more agile than any other sand seal and far more outgoing. An ever-reliable partner to Riju, Patricia is always ready to take off through the desert at a moment's notice."
