Fi's Comment:

Target Lock: Rusta

His name is Rusta, and he is an elderly dreamer and husband to Henya, who works at the Knight Academy.

He is quite opinionated, and so not many people take this elderly man's opinions seriously.

Rusta can be found at the bird statue near the Waterfall Cave in Skyloft before the Wing Ceremony, where he notes to Link that it is missing an eye.[3] Afterwards, Rusta can be found at the Lumpy Pumpkin. After Kukiel goes missing, he informs Link about a monster in Skyloft,[4] something many people don't believe.[5][6][7] If Link breaks the Lumpy Pumpkin's chandelier, he will scold him for doing so, saying that he scared a year off his life.[8]


Rusta's name may be derived from rooster. Fittingly, his wife's name, Henya, comes from hen.
