Rune Factory 1
The main character of the first game and of Frontier. He developed amnesia and wandered up to Mist's door steps where she provided him with a home. In Frontier she ends up housing him again after he follows her to Trampoli
- The Ace: Arguably. Raguna can earn tons of money farming/mining/fishing/whatever, kick ass in dungeons and win the heart of pretty much every unmarried girl in town.
- Bishōnen - Taken even further with the feminine accessories displayed when equipped in Frontier.
- Bi the Way: Raguna CAN propose to the male villagers in Rune Factory Frontier. Sure, they reject without fail, and they see it as a joke, but Raguna certainly doesn't seem to think of it as a joke.
- But Thou Must: Even lampshaded by Raguna at times.
- Cast from Hit Points: If Raguna runs out of rune points, his actions start depleting his own health bar.
- Deadpan Snarker: Not so much in the original, but he's arguably this in Frontier.
- The Hero: Well, duh. He's this in the sequel too.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: They are the fastest weapon, but not everyone prefers them.
- Improbable Weapon User: If the player really feels up to a challenge, they can have Raguna fight monsters with farm tools.
- Knight in Shining Armor
- Only Sane Man
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Word of God confirms that Ivan, who is all but blatantly named as Raguna’s elder brother, is a second cousin to the King of Norad.
- Unwitting Pawn: In the first game Raguna is literally fufilling the vilains plans from the moment he set foot in Kardia up until he starts fighting the final boss.
A young girl who allows Raguna to help her operate the farm in Kardia. She's a bit strange, but she means well. In Frontier she's traveled to Trampoli, feeling that something is calling her.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Normally a ditzy, sweet girl, but cheat on her and...
- Childhood Friend Romance: With Raguna.
- Detached Sleeves
- Does Not Understand Sarcasm
- Dumb Blonde: More ditzy than dumb, though.
- First Girl Wins: Or is supposed too, at least.
- Flanderization: While she has her moments in the original game she's downright bizzare in Frontier.
- Hair Decorations: She ties her hair back with a pink ribbon.
- Official Couple - She's the "official" love interest for Raguna, though he can freely marry whichever bachelorette available.
- Though Rune Factory Oceans implies that one of the Iris twins might have won Raguna's heart, given that their Rank 10 love event was canonically completed.
- Of course. Iris's Rank 10 event can be completed without marrying her, so that leaves things open for a sequel.
- However, Anette mentions her "weird roommate" in Tides of Destiny, referring to her moving in with Mist after her pre-marriage events, which essentially states he didn't marry Mist in canon, at least not by the time Tides of Destiny occurred.
The delivery girl. In Frontier, she opens up a shop in Trampoli that specializes in flower seeds. She's a bit pushy and competitive, but means well.
A girl in love with magic and bath houses, the second of which she runs. She has no real talent for spell casting, but dresses like a witch regardless. She's good with potions, though

Lady Ann's daughter. She is rather shy around people, so she likes to surround herself with books from the library.
Bianca's elven caretaker. She loves the idea of humans and monsters working together. Later moves to Trampoli, then spends some time on Fennis Island.

Owner of the grocery shop in the business district. Having been the only shop in town has made him complacent, so his store offers very few products and poor service.

- Defeat Means Friendship: After Rosetta runs him out of business, he's hired to work at Materia.
- Picky Eater: He hates vegetables so much that he'll try not to touch them when he has to pick up Raguna's shipments.

- Not so much unknown, as he confronts her eventually.
