    Rune Factory 1 

Voiced by: Romi Park (JP); Johnny Yong Bosch (EN) (Frontier)

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

Voiced By: Ami Koshimizu (JP); Stephanie Sheh (EN) (Frontier)

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.
  • Dumb Blonde: More ditzy than dumb, though.
  • 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. On the other hand, Iris' 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 that Raguna 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.


Voiced by: Akemi Kanda (JP); Jessica Straus (EN) (Frontier)

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.

Voiced By: Mai Aizawa (JP); Karen Strassman (EN) (Frontier)

A nurse and, in Frontier, sister in training. In the original game she's the daughter of the local clergy and helps at the hospital, but in Frontier she's running the local infirmary all on her own.


Voiced By: Mayu Arishima (JP); Kari Wahlgren (EN) (Frontier)

The daughter of local gourmet Jasper de Saint-Coquille, who lives in the largest house in town. She comes off as a bit snobby, but she's really a nice girl.


The daughter of Mayor Godwin. She fell ill a year before the game begins, but tries her hardest to help out in spite of her poor health.


Lady Ann's daughter. She is rather shy around people, so she likes to surround herself with books from the library.


Voiced By: Akemi Sato (JP); Bridget Hoffman (EN)

A wandering woman who enjoys fishing. She's supposedly on a mission, but she'll never say what it is.


A woman who lives on the outskirts of town. She is invariably drawn to caverns and ruins.
  • Not Good with People: She never visits town, even during festivals. Despite this, she is one of the easiest of the characters in the original game to marry.


A commander from the Sechs military and another bachelorette, who comes to live in town only after the main storyline is cleared.
  • Easily Forgiven: She was the architect of the whole plan behind the monster summoning plan. Raguna forgives her for this almost instantly, though the alternative was her being forced to commit seppuku as per the rules of the Sechs military.


A wandering merchant who stops by the village on holidays to sell his goods.


Her appearance in the first Rune Factory. She appears, much older, as a bachelorette in Rune Factory 2.

    Rune Factory Frontier 

Sister Stella

A nun who works at the Trampoli Church and offers to give Raguna shelter when he first arrives in town.


A fellow farmer who sells a variety of crops. He's the most competitive character to date. If Raguna gives him a turnip he'll be "so happy he'll cry".


Voiced By: Yoshihiro Kanemitsu (JP)

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.
  • Bishōnen
  • Brown Eyes
  • 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.
  • Unknown Rival: He considers Rosetta his enemy because her shop gets way more business than his own.
    • Not so much unknown, as he confronts her eventually.


Voiced By: Yoshihiro Kanemitsu (JP); Blake Lewis (EN)

A soft-spoken carpenter who lives just outside the town. He harbors a dark past.

Voiced By:
Blanche: Sakura Nogawa (JP); Michelle Ruff (EN)
Noire: Rina Sato (JP); Michelle Ruff (EN)

A girl who lives in a tower on Whale Island. She has a twin sister, who is also named Iris. Gelwein names them as "Iris Blanche" and "Iris Noire" to tell them apart.
  • Broken Bird: Noire. She was kidnapped by Gelwein, forced to sing for him, and emotionally tormented into believing she was completely worthless. Even after she's rescued, she still remains rather melancholy.
  • It's All My Fault: After Raguna saves her from Gelwein's control, Noire says this about Mist's kidnapping. Raguna talks her out of it, though.
  • Last of Her Kind: Sole remaining members of a vampire race, which by Word of God died off more from lack of interest in reproducing than from being hunted down. Iris is implied in fan material to not be a full blooded member of her species, which is also apparently 'not' vampires, just something that can't enter a church, sleeps during the day, drinks blood, and passes out if one gives it garlic.
  • Magic Music: The Spirit Song.
  • More Than Mind Control: Gelwein manipulates Iris Noire this way, telling her she's a worthless fool with no friends. And it works. If Raguna gets Blanche to intervene, Noire will even tell her that she doesn't know her and that she has nothing.
  • Mysterious Waif: Definitely. They have pale hair (light blonde for Blanche, silver for Noire), live isolated from humanity, and have special powers the main villain wants them for.
  • Noodle Scribbling: Blanche is supposedly a terrible artist, but we never get to see her abominations.
    Raguna: "That's a very cute chitter."
    Iris Blanche: "That's... an apple..."
  • One Steve Limit: Subverted and played straight, in an odd way. While there are two independent characters named Iris (they even split up on rare occasions), they are actually two manifestations of the same person. They remain two separate people until the 10LP event is cleared and and they are merged back together.
  • Our Vampires Are Different
  • Rescue Romance: Twofold. Blanche rescues Raguna from Noire if she has more than 4 LP, and he then rescues Noire from Gelwein.
  • Single-Minded Twins: Not really twins, but the only difference between the two is that one will occasionally mention drawing and one will occasionally use tarot cards. Otherwise all their dialogue is the same.
  • Skippable Boss: Noire, if Blanche likes Raguna enough.
  • Talking to Herself: Only in the American localization, in which both are voiced by Michelle Ruff.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Both push grade A.


An elven blacksmith. She's not as strong as a dwarf, but her attention to detail makes up for that.
  • The Blacksmith
  • Informed Ability: Supposedly she's a master smith, but by the time the player beats the game she's still crafting some of the weakest of each type of weapon.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: The most drastic example in the series.


Ganesha's fiery-tempered son. Dreams of becoming a master swordsman.

Voiced By: Kana Asumi (JP); Hynden Walch (EN)

The mail girl for Trampoli, and later on Finis Island. Frequently chased by monsters.


A loud, abrasive man who shows up in Trampoli at the beginning of Fall. Seems to harbor a grudge against Raguna.


A mysterious scientist who once researched experimental uses of runes. Often speaks with Iris Blanche.


Tabatha's sister who comes to stay in Trampoli temporarily. Has a tendency to say harsh things.
  • Long Bus Trip: Having finished her business, she'll leave as soon as Raguna finishes Tabatha's heart events and won't ever come back to visit.
  • The Not-Love Interest: Despite being yet another cute, young, single girl in Trampoli, she isn't a marriage candidate and Raguna can't even gain LP with her.
