Title(s) Mail Service Employee
Race Hylian
Gender Male
Game(s) The Wind Waker
Family Kashiko (mother;[1] never seen)

Baito is the name of the mail service employee in The Wind Waker. Baito has tribal tattoos on his body, notably one on his back that resemble an Eye Symbol.



The first meeting with Baito is when he is trying to apply for the Letter Sorting job, wandering around Dragon Roost Island after Link achieved the Dragon Roost Cavern. He is eventually hired at the Island Postal Service after Koboli, impressed by Link's contribution to the mail sorting, decided to hire a permanent assistant. In addition to his regular duties, he will allow Link to sort letters as a mini-game, where the young hero is challenged to sort at least 25 letters.

Note to Mom

When Link wins the minigame, Baito will ask him to put a letter in the mail to his mother talking about how great Link is. This letter is the Note to Mom. Some time after sending the letter, Link will receive a reply from Baito's mother, whose name is Kashiko,[1] with a Piece of Heart inside. Due to Link's impressive mail-sorting abilities, Baito will compliment Link and praise him with any opportunity he gets.

Birthplace: Unknown.
Personality: Earnest.
Baito is very earnest when it comes to mastering a job. He often misses his mother and gets homesick, which can be quite hard on him. He wants to be like Link.


  • Baito shares some characteristics with the Trading Post Part-Timer from Majora's Mask.
  • Zauz from Phantom Hourglass, who distinguishes himself in the game as a Cobble descendant, has a look nearly similar to that of Baito: both have auburn hair, are bare-chested, wear shorts, and boast tribal tattoos.
  • Baito is the only Hylian found on Dragon Roost Island.
