Martha, as she appears in Link's Awakening.
Schule Donavitch made a statue of her, called "The Mourning Mermaid", which is placed near Martha's Bay, but it is not complete. She asks Link to retrieve her lost necklace that was taken away by the waves. When Link returns her the necklace, she rewards him with one of the scales from her tail. Link can place the scale on the Mermaid Statue to reveal a hidden passage where he finds the Magnifying Lens.
- In the Japanese and some European versions of the game, Link instead had to find her lost swimsuit top, but Nintendo of America deemed this to be too inappropriate for American audiences.
