Ulrira, also known as Grandpa Ulrira and Old Man Ulrira, is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. He is the oldest and wisest resident of Mabe Village, the central settlement of Koholint Island. He aids Link throughout his quest to wake the Wind Fish by providing him with information about a given situation if Link calls him from one of the Phone Booths on Koholint Island.
Ulrira is often considered to be Koholint Island's equivalent of the Old Men from earlier games in the series, as he gives hints to Link and helps him along on his quest. Also, his big, white beard is a physical attribute commonly connected with the Old Men, and on the in-game map, his house is referred to as "Old Man Ulrira's House".
Ulrira lives with his wife in the southwestern section of Mabe Village. He is shy by nature, and can only be contacted from one of the Phone Booths found around the island; if Link seeks him out in his home, he shyly but politely asks Link to go outside and call instead. Ulrira is quite knowledgeable about a lot of things, and almost always has a helpful hint if Link gives him a call. If Link attempts to call from the telephone located inside his house, however; a character calling itself the Bucket Mouse answers.
