First appearance The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
Species Human
“Oh, really?! Do it your way? Go your own way? What a buncha garbage! All this endless babbling about living with a lust for adventure. Can that put food on the table? Can that make your family happy? Going your own way is no survive in this life. My way's a lot better. Staying home, eating cheese, that's the life!”
Romanos, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Romanos is an inhabitant of Molida Island in The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and the son of the Old Wayfarer. When Link first meets him, he is shown to be deeply resentful of his father leaving his family behind. After Link asks him about the Isle of Gust the Old Wayfarer supposedly was looking for, Romanos then asks if he is trying to "go his own way" as well. If Link replies "yes," he angrily scolds him, saying it is a worthless thing to do as it cannot provide for others. Despite this, he admits that he does not work either, instead staying home and eating cheese. He then tells Link to not mention the island anymore, figure it out for himself, and leave. When Link reaches the door, he calls him back and apologizes, saying that he needed to get the stress out. He then tells him that his father had found a specific route through the fog of the Northwestern Sea to reach the Isle of Gust, and there are likely clues in his "hideaway" located in a cave behind his house. He also advises Link to be careful, as it is full of monsters. Once Link goes through, defeats the monsters (which include the game's first Zora Warrior), and finds some clues, Romanos is inspired, and considers adventuring himself.

Once Link has cleared the Temple of Courage, Romanos has decided he will go adventuring himself, but due to his lack of funds, sets up a Shooting Gallery in his house to get money.
