Despite being a former knight, Peater is noticeably out of shape, and wears a knight's uniform that is several sizes too small, along with pink armwear. He was once considered the teen heartthrob of Skyloft, but is now quite protective of his daughter, telling Link to "keep his eyes to himself" when visiting him in his house at night.
Peater's secluded hideaway is found at Bamboo Island where he runs the Clean Cut mini-game. He claims to hold the record with 43 slices, although this is doubted by many.
The name "Peater" appears to be a portmanteau of the word peacock, and the given name Peter. His daughter's name is also a variation on this portmanteau.
