|Debut||A Link to the Past|
Sahasrahla was descended from one of the seven sages and acted as the elder of Kakariko Village. After Agahnim rose to power and the soldiers began wandering the area in search of the sage's descendants, he fled to a secret retreat near the Eastern Palace. When Link went to find him, he had to get directions from a young boy who knew where Sahasrahla had fled. Link then met Sahasrahla at his hiding place.
Sahasrahla informed Link about the nature of the Master Sword. He instructed Link that if he was serious that he should go to the Eastern Palace and retrieve the Pendant of Courage. When Link returned with the pendant, Sahasrahla told him more of the story of the Master Sword and the Knights of Hyrule. He then gave Link the Pegasus Boots, which were a magical item passed down by his ancestors. He then encouraged Link to go and find the Ice Rod which he felt would be helpful to him.
Not only was he wise, but Sahasrahla also possessed the ability to communicate telepathically. In dungeons he would use special blocks to communicate to Link and provide him help and clues. He also spoke to Link telepathically after Link retrieved the Master Sword. When Link was forced into the Dark World (after defeating Agahnim), Sahasrahla communicated to Link again telling him the nature of the Golden Land. He then begged Link to find the maidens and bring peace back to Hyrule. After Link defeated Ganon, Sahasrahla was able to return to his home in Kakariko Village.
- You can go into the Eastern Palace before you even talk to Sahasrahla. If you do and talk to him afterwards, he will be surprised and tell you everything all at once.
- If you defeat Agahnim without the Moon Pearl, Sahasrahla will note your helplessness and tell you to go to Death Mountain and track the item down.
- Although one child in Kakariko Village refers to him as "grandpa", the original Japanese text makes it more likely that he's using the honorific used to refer to old men. The boy and the old woman in Sahasrahla's house (who only refers to him as "the elder") are both seen with Sahasrahla in the ending, but their relation is unclear.
