Ravio is a tad eccentric wearing a purple bunny hood that hides his face. He also wears a blue and black striped scarf and a purple gown tied together by a brown belt embedded with a green rupee.
Underneath his hood, it is revealed that he looks just like Link except with dark purple hair and green eyes. Ravio is frequently accompanied by his pet bird, Sheerow, who tends to mimic many of his gestures and emotions.
Link encounters Ravio soon after encountering Yuga when he discovers an unexpected guest in his house. Ravio asks Link if he can stay a while. Link discovers a sign outside the Eastern Palace and learns of an item being opened south of the castle. When he returns home, he discovers that Ravio has turned his house into an rental item shop.
Towards the end of the game, Ravio reveals his true identity. He is originally Link's counterpart in Lorule. However, unlike Link, he was a coward. He learned of Princess Hilda's plan to work with Yuga to steal Hyrule's Triforce but, he was too afraid to do anything directly. Instead, he traveled to Hyrule in the hope of finding someone who could take on the pair. In Hero Mode, if Link visits the Vacant House, he can find Ravio's journal which details the plan.
