Maggie's Father is a character in The Wind Waker.

Biography

Maggie's father can be seen in Windfall Island begging to anyone who passes by to rescue his beloved daughter from the Forsaken Fortress.[1] Upon Maggie's return, thanks to Maggie bringing back Skull Necklaces, he and Maggie become filthy rich.[2][3] He goes through a complete change in personality after his daughter is freed and once they become wealthy. Originally, he seemed very timid and nice, but after becoming rich, he became extremely selfish and loathsome. Even though his personality had changed, he still protects his daughter as can be seen when he kicks out the Rito postman Ilari for trying to deliver a love letter from a Moblin.[4][5] If Link gives Maggie's father 20 Skull Necklaces, he'll give Link a Treasure Chart.[6]

Maggie's Father (Figurine from The Wind Waker)

Birthplace: Windfall Island.
Personality: Not particularly good.
Surprisingly, Maggie's father is quite confident that he is the epitome of fashion. It would probably be more accurate to say that the clothes he wears are "distinct". He seems to especially like vintage clothes and jewelry.

Trivia

  • Unlike Mila's Father, Maggie's father does not care if Link breaks the expensive jars on the lower floor of the living quarters.
  • Even before becoming rich, it is implied that he cared more about making money than his daughter's well-being. [7]
