"In Hyrule, countless tales are told of the ancient hero...and your deeds bring them all to mind. May the graces of the great goddesses who shaped Hyrule bear you on your way."
— Renado

Renado is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. He is the chief shaman of Kakariko Village, where he lives with his daughter, Luda. He is generally a gentle, calm and understanding character. However, Telma, the barmaid, appears to have feelings for him, but they are unrequited; Renado asks Link to deliver a letter to her instead of going himself. It is revealed by Mayor Bo that the two know each other and share some kind of friendship. Strangely, a symbol bearing a striking resemblance to the Hylian emblem, can be found on his clothing.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

First encountered in the Twilight as a spirit, he watches the children from Ordon Village, and keeps them safe in his sanctuary after they escape capture from King Bulblin's forces. Later, he helps heal the Zora, Prince Ralis, when Link escorts Telma and Ilia to Kakariko, and later plays an important part in the restoration of Ilia's memory. Later, Link returns to his sanctuary to find the hidden Sky Cannon found in its basement.

Spoiler warning: Spoilers end here.
