Biography

Fi's Comment:

Target lock: ???
"This is the hand of a ghost. The ghost's original name is unknown. Judging from its appearance, I calculate a 90% chance it belonged to a young girl. Over 80% of ghosts are said to harbor some kind of unfulfilled desire. I suggest you cease being scared and speak to her.
(If given Cawlin's Letter)

This is the hand of a ghost. Identity while alive is unknown. Judging from the look of this hand, the probability that it was a young girl's is 90%. Master, the letter you gave her from Cawlin has inspired feelings for him. The original purpose of the letter is still unclear."

The ghost of a young girl named Phoeni appears as a hand in the toilet of the Knight Academy at night asking for paper. Once Link receives Cawlin's Letter, he can choose to deliver it to Karane or give it to Phoeni.[3] If he chooses to give it to Karane and visits Phoeni afterwards, she will tell Link she no longer needs paper before vanishing.[4] If he chooses to give the Letter to Phoeni, she will believe the letter was meant for her,[5] giving Link five Gratitude Crystals in return. Afterwards, Phoeni's hand can be found stroking Cawlin's head while he sleeps.[3]

Trivia

  • The concept of a hand in the toilet is based on Japanese ghost stories where a hand grabs from beneath the toilet whenever someone sits in the bathroom.[6]

Nomenclature

Phoeni is named after the phoenix.
