"We meet again! Small kingdom! Did you see the shrine near this stable? I know quite a bit about shrines. You see, my teacher was the court poet for the Hyrulean royal family and also a member of the Sheikah tribe. He was well versed in ancient civilizations and surveyed ruins in the company of the princess, it seems. Those memories seemed to bring him a great deal of joy when he would speak of them. Anyways, I should return to my craft. I happen to know a song about the ancient hero. It was passed down to me by my teacher. Do you care to hear it?"
— Kass

Kass is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He is a wandering Rito minstrel who will play the accordion and sing an ancient verse to Link, telling him the location of several shrines throughout Hyrule. Link can occasionally encounter Kass at certain stables where he will offer to sing Link an ancient song of Ganon's defeat 10,000 years prior.

He is the student of a Sheikah who was the court poet of Royal Family of Hyrule before the Great Calamity and is traveling the land to fulfill a promise he made to his teacher who is implied to have passed away at some point in the 100 years following the Great Calamity. However he was forced to leave his wife Amali and children in Rito Village and longs to fulfill his promise in order to return to them.


As a Rito, Kass is capable of flying an ability he presumably uses to travel across the vast expanses of Hyrule. Kass is knowledgeable of various legends told through ancient verses and knows a lot about Shrines as his teacher once accompanied Princess Zelda in surveying Shrines. As a minstrel, he is a skilled accordion player.

In addition to providing legends that contain clues, Kass will also sing of Ganon's defeat 10,000 years prior to the events of Breath of the Wild. While his story resembles the one told of the battle by Impa, it differs in that it a legend told through song. Kass is also shown to be knowledgeable of classic songs like "Epona's Song" which he plays at certain stables.
