From Zelda Legends Wiki
Rito who, along with his childhood friend, Skett, serves as the chieftain's guard and uses antiquated language.
Together with Skett they are the Chieftain’s Personal Guards. He is located on Dragon Roost Island where he guards the door inside the Chieftain’s Hut. Akoot is the Rito on the left of the entrance next to Skett. His physical appearance is exactly the same as Skett’s, but since they never move around it is safe to say that the Rito on the left is Akoot.
Akoot and Skett became friends at a young age and they seem to be inseparable, when you speak to either one of them they will most likely talk to each other as well. These two Rito look young and vigorous and they are the strongest Ritos according to the NPG description. Considering that it seems logical that they are the personal guards of the Chieftain.
Nintendo Power Gallery – Skett and Akoot’s Description:
Skett & Akoot Birthplace: Dragon Roost Island Occupation: The Chieftain’s Guards
Skett and Akoot are said to be number- one and number-two Ritos when it comes to talent and strength, which is why they are the chieftain’s guards.
The main reason they get along so well is because they are childhood friends. Their style of speech can be considered somewhat antiquated.
The German, and Spanish names are based off of the Japanese name. The English version is somewhat similar, but his original name is closer to Gakt.
