At the beginning of the game, Link's Crimson Loftwing has gone missing shortly before the commencement of the Wing Ceremony. While searching for it, Link has a vision of his Loftwing under imprisonment. In order to obtain a sword for his search, he goes to the Sparring Hall and retrieves the Practice Sword from its storeroom. After receiving training from Eagus, Link is able to use the sword to enter the Waterfall Cave, beyond which his Loftwing is found.
