Grandpa, his given name unknown, is a supporting character in Secret of Mana.


A wizened male sprite who lived with many of his kind in the concealed Sprite Village, Popoi claims that he is their grandfather.


Secret of Mana[edit]

“Mana guardian and elder of Sprite Village, he is also priest of the Wind Palace. Popoi always called him "Grandpa".”
Dengeki: August 27, 1993

Not much is known about the events of Grandpa's life prior to meeting the party. He is the only survivor of an attack on Sprite Village by Spring Beak and Imperial forces, the latter attempting to take the Mana Seed of Wind. Grandpa was forced to draw back into the Wind Palace to protect both the Seed and the sprites' patron spirit Sylphid, but had been blinded in the assault. Though he now lacks sight, he retains his wisdom; so, when the party meets him, Grandpa instructs Sylphid to go with Popoi and the others as his new masters. Grandpa also tells the party to head for Matango to find more information about the next steps in their quest, binding their wounds before they depart.

If the party visits the Wind Palace in the future, Grandpa offers to heal the party and save game progress.
