A wise man who is hiding in a cave in the Desert of Mystery.



This old man lives inside a cavern in the north-east corner of the Desert of Mystery. He knows about a prophecy of the Book of Mudora, and actually hints you where to find it. That is actually his entire role in A Link to the Past.

Miscellaneous Notes

You can bomb the south wall of his room, behind it you can find a treasure chest containing a Piece of Heart.

How can a man spend his entire living in a dark cave without food? Some may ask, but no one can answer.

Country Name
Japanese アジナー (AJINÂ)
Other Aginah


The Japanese version アジナー transliterates to "AJINÂ." The "j" is soft, unlike the implied hard "g" in "Aginah." In all other languages he is always called Aginah. At least in the GBA version of the game.
