Tokk is a character in Breath of the Wild.[1]


Tokk is an elderly man who lives in a farmhouse just under the hill where the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab sits. He usually spends his time sitting on a stool out by an Apple Tree in his yard. Tokk is not a forthcoming man, often sighing when spoken to.[2][3]

Link can ask to speak to Tokk about a few different topics.[4] Should the hero ask about the Great Calamity, Tokk wonders if Uma may have put him up to this.[5] Although he sees no real reason behind Link's curiosity, Tokk relinquishes what he learned about the Calamity from his father.[6] He tells Link about how Hyrule Castle was "contaminated" and how the Great Calamity wiped out nearly everything.[7] Tokk is thankful that Hateno Village managed to survive the disaster due to its far-off location.[8] Tokk also recalls that someone attempted to put an end to the Calamity, but he is quick to dismiss the entire topic as irrelevant.[9]

If Link asks about the place he is in, Tokk at first believes he is inquiring about the farm.[10] However, he is quick to realize that Link likely means the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab above them and tells him that a Sheikah tribe member is conducting research there.[11]

Link can ask who Tokk himself is, but the elder will humbly admit he is naught but an old man.[12]

At 5:00 AM, Tokk wakes up to go to his usual stool outside. He will not discuss anything until he has a seat.[13] Should it rain while he is outside, he will sit inside until it stops. At 9:00 PM, he considers the day to be over and goes to bed.[14]
