- "I think if you can free the pieces of my soul from the ghosts that hold them, I'll be free..."
- — Jovani
At one point during the game, Link must sneak into Hyrule Castle as a wolf and meet Princess Zelda. On his route, he enters a strange house filled with riches and a golden statue. This golden statue turns out to be Jovani, who had sold his soul for endless riches. His soul was split into sixty pieces and given to sixty Poes. Jovani, as well as his cat, Gengle, were both turned into solid gold statues. To break the curse, he asks Link to hunt down these Poes and to retrieve their souls.
Once Link has obtained twenty Poe Souls, Jovani is able to move again; however, the curse on his pigmentation remains. As thanks, Jovani presents him with a bottle of Great Fairy's Tears. Gengle is completely normal, but can't escape the house because the door is locked. When Link recovers all sixty Poe Souls, the curse on Jovani is completely broken. Jovani is saddened to learn that while he was cursed, his girlfriend left him for another man. As his reward, Gengle, not knowing what to do with all of the extra money, provides Link with an endless supply of Silver Rupees.
- "A Poe hides its soul not in its body, but elsewhere."
