zelda viii: oracle of ages
bippin & blossom's son
In the screen just west of the entrance to the Maku Tree in the Present is a double door-adorned house. Inside is the new family of Bippin, Blossom, and their son. Link can have great influence in the raising of this young lad through various decisions made over the course of both the original nonlinked game, and the subsequent linked game.
Naming the Son
When you first talk to Blossom she'll be cradling the newborn boy. She'll ask you to do the honor of naming her first child. I personally named him Redo, and I'll be referring to the son as that here on out.
Redo is Sick
After the second Dungeon, check in with Blossom and it appears that Redo has become sick. She'll ask for some charity (in Rupee form, of course) so she can take Redo to the doctor. Link can give 1, 10, 50, or 150 Rupees. If you don't give Blossom any money, Redo will never grow up.
Redo Won't Sleep
After the fourth Dungeon, when you visit Blossom it will appear that Redo can't sleep and Blossom doesn't know how to get him to do so. She'll ask for some advice, to which you can tell her to either sing Redo to sleep, or play with him until he falls asleep.
After this particular episode, next time you go see Redo he'll be a kid and won't grow anymore for this game. When you start the linked game that follows, you'll find that the whole clan has uprooted and moved to Holodrum into a new house. Visit them after beating the first dungeon for a new chance to affect Redo's upbringing.
Redo Is Grown Into A...
If you told Blossom to play with Redo, you'll find her watching Redo running back and forth across the room. She'll ask Link if he was ever hyper as a child, and if you answer no, if Link was weird as well. Redo will ask you if you have a girlfriend if you talk to him.
If you gave Blossom either 1 or 10 Rupees, and told her to sing to Redo, talking to Blossom will reveal that she has noticed that her son is developing into a very curious child. She'll ask you in a particular sequence if you were energetic, quiet, or weird. Talk to Redo and he'll ask what came first, the Chicken or the Egg.
If you gave Blossom either 50 or 150 Rupees and told her to sing to Redo, the boy will grow up to be shy of strangers. Blossom will ask you if you were energetic, quiet, or weird and Redo (if you catch him) will ask you if you are strong or not.
After beating the third Dungeon, when you visit Redo you'll find he has grown into following one of four different paths.
Talk to Redo while he is in training for this path and he'll ask you what it takes to be a great hero, Training Daily, Natural Talent, or a Caring Heart. Later on when you visit him he'll give you a prize based on what you replied. If you said Training Daily he'll give you 100 Rupees, Natural Talent nets you one recovered heart, Caring Heart gets you full health restored, and if you said no to each question he'll give you one Rupee.
Redo will ask for a donation so he can go see the world (it never stops with this family!) in the amount of 100, 50, 10, or 1 Rupee. Depending on how much you give him, you'll get something in return next time you see him. 100 Rupees will get your Seed Stachel filled, 50 will get you 200 Rupees in return (he must be fleecing other heroes), 10 Rupees will get you a Gasha Seed, and 1 Rupee will allow you to here Redo whine about how he wants to see the world.
Redo will ask you what is most important, Love or Courage. Next time you go to see him he'll play a song for you. Tell him you liked it for all hearts restored.
Talk to Redo and he'll give you a Gasha Seed. Next time you see him he'll give you some Gasha Seed-related advice.
