    Mark and Chelsea 

Mark and Chelsea game's male and female main characters, respectively. Playing as Mark makes Chelsea a marriage candidate, and vice-versa.

  • Anime Hair: Mark.
  • The Chosen One: In SI, the sprites choose them to gather the Sunstones.
  • Everyman: Unlike other characters, who have specific likes and dislikes, neither Mark nor Chelsea has anything they explicitly love or hate.
  • Heroic Mime: Most of the time, when controlled by the player. But, when you play as either of them, the other will arrive on the island eventually as a speaking marriage candidate. Averted in Frantic Farming, where both characters are quite chatty.
