Pete protagonist of the story. He's a young man who takes over his grandfather's old farm after his death.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Has bright blue eyes to show off his innocent and youthful farmer persona.
  • Early Installment Character-Design Difference: Future characters who use his design typically have brown eyes, a blue hat, and their handkerchief the other way around. This game features blue eyes, a green hat (though the sprite shows it blue, possibly to not blend in with the background), and the handkerchief facing the back.

  • Heroic Mime: There are some lines in the game implied to be from Pete but it's all internal.
