Link has a very important connection with his nanny, Mrs. Healy, who has been working for his family as long as Link can remember. She had spent her young life working for Link’s grandparents. When Link’s father got married to his mother, Mrs. Healy was sent to work for him, almost as if she were a gift.

The intended purpose of the play was to teach about the importance of remembering your past. Throughout the almost the entirety of the play we see examples of this, for example, Mister Matternot turns out at the end to be Iris’s father. However, by the time he is reunited with his coat he has spent several years away from his family because he couldn’t remember who he was, where he came from or his past. When he was reunited with his coat he remembers who he was, why his hands are cut, and who his family is and is finally able to return to Nocturno. Also, both the mom and later the daughter lose their Past Coats and once they do, they both behave nearly identically at first, not knowing who anyone else is, who they are, or what is going on.
