A very mysterious character, this elderly dwarf-like man appears in the Great Palace at the very end of the game to give Link the Triforce of Courage. When Link enters the chamber of the final battle, he spots the Triforce Keeper standing atop a pillar. The man proceeds to magically disappear, and Dark Link jumps out of Link's body, setting up the game's final battle. When Link defeats Dark Link, the Triforce Keeper appears again and approaches the hero. He hands over the Triforce and the game switches scenes to Link awakening Princess Zelda in North Castle.
