From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
The Loyal Sage is a character in A Link to the Past.
The Loyal Sage is an old man who resides in the Sanctuary of Hyrule. He guards Princess Zelda and stays with her after Link rescues her from the Hyrule Castle dungeon and brings her to the Sanctuary. However, while Link is obtaining the Master Sword from the Lost Woods, the Loyal Sage is mortally wounded when soldiers attack the Sanctuary and kidnap the princess. As he is dying, the Loyal Sage tells Link that Princess Zelda was taken to Hyrule Castle so Agahnim could use her to open the Seven Wise Men's Seal. Soon afterwards, the Sage disappears.
The Loyal Sage is last seen during the ending credits after he is revived when Link defeats Ganon, acquires the Triforce, and reverses Ganon's evil deeds.
