Finding Kukiel

No Caption Provided

Location: Outside the Statue of the Goddess

Prerequisites: Must complete the Skyview Temple

As you exit the Goddess Statue, post-Skyview Temple, Kukiel's mom will ask for your help. She's lost her daughter and doesn't know where to look. Rest in a bed and wake up at night. Head to the graveyard in Skyloft and push the statue in the back row, on the far left. This will open the shed and serve as your introduction to Batreaux. It turns out he's not so bad after all and has become close friends with Kukiel. The little girl gets the fact that her mother is worried and promises to return in the morning. Go back to sleep, and head to Kukiel's house in the morning to receive your first batch of five crystals.
