The Astronomer is character from the Phillips masterpiece, Link: The Faces of Evil, encountered after Harlequin is defeated by Link. His purpose in the game is to take the ice crystal and change it into a lantern. How he was elevated to the position of court astronomer is still a mystery, however, on an island where only one person can read, this isn’t surprising. It is suspected that he is a servant of Ganon or else smart enough not to play The Game, because Harlequin hasn’t turned him into a fat anthropomorphic pig yet. Some also suspect that he was the only one who volunteered for the role of astronomer, even if he doesn't know what he is talking about.
