Characters who appear in Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns for the 3DS.
For characters from other games in the series, check out the Characters page here.
Henry and Holly
The player character of the game. Every since they have visited a petting farm as a little child, they have dreamt of becoming a farmer.
Due to their father's work, they had to move around with their family a lot. When Daryl reveals the latest move about to happen, they voice their wish to move out on their own to run a farm.
Daryl is against the idea, citing they have absolutely no experience or any knowledge required to run a farm, like animal husbandry or growing crops. He sends them to his younger brother, Frank, in Westown to learn for themselves how tough it is to be a farmer.
- The Ace: As far as farming is concerned. They have the least experience when it comes to running a farm, but will own the biggest farm in the area, ship a broader range of resources than other farmers, and make a lot more money in the span of a few years.
- Amazonian Beauty: Averted for the female farmer. One of Ludus's love events has him carry an injured farmer on his back, remarking that she's much more slender than expected. And one of Yuzuki's love events shows her incapable of lifting one heavy package, while Yuzuki can easily carry both.
- Call to Agriculture: The prologue shows they have been enamored with farm life for years.
- Character Customization: Like the previous two games, the player can customize the farmer's hair color, eye color, facial structure, and skin color before starting the game. Additional customization in terms of clothes, hairstyles, and facial features can get unlocked later in the game proper.
- Chocolate Baby: An option because of the character customization, since the farmer's family is portrayed as light-haired, blue-eyed Caucasians.
- Cool Big Sibling: To Lynn. While she teases the farmer and pretends to not care about farm work herself, Marlene mentions that Lynn has begun to grow her own kitchen garden after returning home from her visit.
- Determinator: The reason Daryl allowed the farmer to leave was because of their determination to not back down from their plan of running a farm.
- Dub Name Change: Kanata and Nanami were changed to Henry and Holly.
- Expy: Holly strongly resembles Rachel from A New Beginning and Claire from Back to Nature: For Girl.
- Extreme Doormat: Witchie believes them to be one. She points out how the farmer repeatedly shells out money to provide resources for towns where they don't actually live, and Mithra cheerfully helps herself to any rune tablet they might have acquired, and demands increasing amounts of money to translate them. On the other hand, it's clear that the farmer is well-loved for their helpful nature and the villagers are grateful.
- Fish out of Water: Perturbed by the odd greeting customs of Westown and Lulukoko.
- Innocent Blue Eyes: Their default eye color. Not only is it a shared family trait, but it could be seen as a symbol for their inexperience as a farmer and their 'blue-eyed' nature about how difficult farm life can be.
- In the Blood: Frank says they have the markings for being a good farmer, just like him. Their love for farming is also something they share with their father.
- It's Up to You: Downplayed, as the towns and their citizens have their own relationships and history going on, but the farmer is still the driving force in getting them to want to improve their towns. Justified, as the villagers state that things have become much more lively since they've moved in.
- Knight in Shining Armor: The male farmer often plays the role of the rescuer in the bachelorette love events, ranging from minor things of helping out at the shop to carrying them when injured.
- Overalls and Gingham: Both wear gingham shirts, though with different sleeve lengths. The male farmer wears brown overalls, while the female farmer wears a brown dress that has a strip of gingham fabric to it.
- Protagonist Without a Past: Subverted, with this farmer having loved farm life since they were a child, and having always dreamed of eventually running one of their own.
- Shipper on Deck: Frank's friendship event has the farmer believe to overhear him confessing his feelings to a beloved, and excitedly run off to tell people in Westown, despite never having seen this supposed beloved. Turns out it's a misunderstanding, though the player can choose an option to imply that there might be someone nearby who would be interested. The farmer just wants their uncle to be with someone.
- The Simple Life Is Simple: They have no problem jumping in and running a farm with little experience. While Frank is around and offers helpful advice and a symbolic hand, he mostly hands the farmer some tools and tells them to figure things out by simply doing them.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: The female farmer gets painted with a broad streak. While she takes to farming, trading, animal care, and fishing like a champ, and is just as strong as her male counterpart, she displays more girly aspects in the bachelor love events. This includes being scared of ghost stories or being mortified that her stomach growled in front of a stranger.
- "Well Done, Kid!": Running the farm and completing the Farming Tips is to prove to their dad they can do it.
Lisette runs the flower shop of Westown and spends most of her time there, tending the shop that her parents used to run. When they opened a second shop in another town and planned to move there, Lisette offered to manage the original shop on her own.
She's a very sweet, young woman that has little to no bad words to say about anyone, but she has a stubborn streak to her personality. This makes her be somewhat stiff about certain things, like considering the shop running well to be her sole responsibility.
Lisette is a romantic and still reads old fairy tales, hoping to find a love that leads to a happy ending like in those stories. She spends some time with Miranda and Noel, becoming aware of Miranda's feelings for Frank and cheering her on.
Lisette is available from the start of the game.
- Does Not Like Spam: Wasabi Octopus.
- Dub Name Change: Her Japanese name was Liselotte.
- Everyone Can See It: Her later love events have Brad, Carrie, and Wayne note that Lisette has developed a very obvious crush on the male farmer.
- First Girl Wins: Should the player choose to marry Lisette, as she's the first bachelorette to be met.
- Girlish Pigtails: Her hair is gathered into two, twirly pigtails.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Her nature is as bright as her rose-blonde hair.
- I Will Wait for You: Played with in her final love event, where she admits to feeling lonely when the farmer isn't around and wants to see them more, though the farmer points out how dangerous it is for a young woman to walk the streets at night. She agrees and says she's willing to wait for him to come see her.
- Oblivious to Love: Her late love events have the male farmer be oblivious to her feelings for him.
- Pink Means Feminine: If her pink, flower-patterned apron wasn't enough of a giveaway.
- Shipper on Deck: Quietly encourages Miranda's feelings for Frank when she realizes them.
- Southern Belle: She's polite, friendly, and sports a Southern accent as a Westowner.
- Textile Work Is Feminine: Sews little dolls as a hobby, and fixes the farmer's loose button.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Quiche.
Iluka owns the seaside café Carosello in Lulukoko and runs it alongside her younger twin sister, though she spends her free time often wandering the beach or at the temple. She and Siluka are also the town's priestesses, and have been instructed by Tototara as her heirs.
She has a very mischievous side to her, though she only shows this side to her family and very close friends. To others she acts more polite and friendly, which can look strange to those that know her other side. While she can say hurtful things, she also quickly regrets them and has difficulty apologizing for it.
Iluka unlocks on Spring 15th.
- A-Cup Angst: According to her sister, Iluka doesn't like her flat chest.
- Bare Your Midriff: How her top attire differs from Siluka's clothes.
- Big Sister Instinct: Fiercely protective of her sister.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Downplayed, since Iluka may be a bit manipulative and has a mean streak to her, but she's still a good girl at heart. She's just rougher than Siluka.
- Childhood Friend: With Ludus, alongside Siluka.
- Deadpan Snarker: Snarks a lot. Talking to her from across the counter has her happily greet the farmer, only for her to complain that she just wasted her best customer service smile on them.
- Does Not Like Spam: Amazake.
- Dub Name Change: Her Japanese name was Iuka.
- Establishing Character Moment: The farmer sees the two twins observing a squid that a customer has left on one of their tables. Iluka becomes irritated about this, and ends up getting the farmer to clean it up. Between the twins, she's the feistier one.

- Hoist by Her Own Petard: One of her love events has her succeed in making the farmer fall into a pitfall trap she made for him. Right after celebrating her victory, she falls into the pit herself.
- Identical Twin ID Tag: To differentiate from her sister, Iluka wears a more revealing pink outfit that bares her midriff and has Tsurime Eyes.
- It's All My Fault: Blames herself for the shipwreck she, Siluka, and Ludus were in.
- Jerkass Has a Point: Ludus calls Iluka out on demanding a large fee for a simple weather prediction. Iluka retorts that, as a seasoned fisherman, the man should have learned how to read the weather himself by now and not need someone else's help. Ludus cannot help but agree with her on that point.
- Lethal Chef: Downplayed, since her cooking isn't horrible. She's just not as good as a chef as her sister, though when she cooks 'Iluka Curry' for the farmer with Siluka's supervision, it still ends up much too spicy.
- Ms. Fanservice: Her clothes are more revealing than her sister's.
- My Greatest Failure: The Three Childhood Friends three-part event reveals that Iluka sponatenously went sailing with Siluka and Ludus, but she misread the weather, and they got shipwrecked on an isolated island for a month before being rescued. Iluka still blames herself over this incident because it meant she had put Siluka in danger.
- Parental Abandonment: Mentions that their parents ditched her and Siluka in Lulukoko one day, and they never returned. They got taken in by Tototara and grew up alongside Ludus.

- Tsurime Eyes: Has them, compared to her sister.
- Twin Switch
- One of her love events has her dress up as Siluka to ask the farmer why he forgave Iluka so easily for the pitfall trap. The farmer doesn't notice the switch, though he's confused when 'Siluka' leaves and Siluka comes up behind him.
- For one of Siluka's later love events, Iluka dressed up as her again because she doesn't believe that the farmer is actually able to tell the difference between her and Siluka, and is trying to prove it. The farmer notices it immediately, much to Iluka's pleased surprise.
Siluka is the chef at the seaside café Carosello in Lulukoko, and spends her freetime wandering around nature. She and Iluka are the town's priestesses and were instructed by Tototara to become her heirs.
She's kinder than her sister, though this doesn't mean that Siluka is incapable of hurting people with words. There are just times when she's accidentally more blunt than was intended. Siluka often looks like she's staring off into space or is daydreaming. She says her twin cannot get anything past her.
Iluka unlocks on Spring 15th.
- Aura Vision: Can see other people's auras.
- Brought Down to Normal: Her friendship event has Siluka lose her ability to see auras, which distresses her and Iluka. Trying to figure out what might have caused it, it eventually turns out that Siluka just didn't sleep enough. After a refreshing nap, she can see auras again.
- Brutal Honesty: Despite her dreamlike attitude she can be incredibly blunt, especially towards Ludus and her sister.
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Auras are a certain color, depending on the emotion or intent. Siluka mentions that pink stands for romantic love, while black means someone has evil intentions, etc.
- Childhood Friends: With Ludus, alongside Iluka.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Rather spacey at times, and can say odd things.
- Deadpan Snarker: Much less than Iluka, but Siluka can drop her own snarky comments. She's the one to bring up the shipwreck and merely giggles sweetly when called out on it.
- The Ditz: Tends to have her head in the clouds, much to Iluka's dismay.
- Does Not Like Spam: Candied Carrots.
- Dub Name Change: Her Japanese name was Shuka.
- The Empath: Gains insight into people's minds by seeing and reading their aura.
- Establishing Character Moment: The twins are seen observing a squid that a customer left on one of their tables. Siluka ignores Iluka's annoyance, and wonders what she could serve alongside it for dinner. Clearly, Siluka is the spacey twin.
- Happily Adopted: By Tototara.
- Identical Twin ID Tag: To differentiate her from her sister, Siluka wears a more modest blue dress and has Tareme Eyes.
- The Medic: Creates herbal concoctions in her spare time. Talking to Ford about this reveals that the two of them have become pen-pals about this hobby of hers.
- Nice Girl: Doesn't have as mean of a streak to her as Iluka.
- Parental Abandonment: Their parents left her and Iluka in Lulukoko one day, never returning. Tototara took the two in and they grew up alongside Ludus.

- Tareme Eyes: Has them, compared to her sister.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Tropical Sandwich.
- True Blue Femininity: Bright blue compared to her feisty sister.
- Twin Switch: Unwillingly agrees to dress up as Iluka for her sister's love event because Iluka feels insecure about her relationship with the farmer, since he previously didn't notice that the Siluka he was talking to was actually Iluka dressed up. The farmer recognizes the switch very fast, which makes Iluka very happy.
Komari works as a waitress at the Tea-ful Reunion teahouse her father runs, and brings many customers with her cheerful and bright personality. When she isn't working, she likes to hang out with her good friend Kasumi.
She often played rough with the boys as a child, showing her tomboyish side, and this leads to her interactions with customers being a bit more coarse than they intend to be. Nonetheless, she's still very popular with male customers. Komari would like to become more feminine, though.
Komari unlocks on Summer 5th.
- Bridal Carry: One love event has the farmer pick her up to carry her home, much to her displeasure. She quickly insists on being put down.
- Childhood Friend: With Yuzuki. Since he was too sickly to play outside with others, she'd drop by his house a lot for tea or less exhausting games.
- Does Not Like Spam: Yoghurt Rice.
- Feminine Women Can Cook: Inverted; she's the most masculine of the bachelorettes and takes after her father in terms of cooking skill.

- Genki Girl: Always eager at what she does.
- Lap Pillow: Discussed in one of her love events, where she would like to do more typical couple things. But she says that having his head resting on her lap would be much too advanced for her at that point.
- Missing Mom: Her mother's on a journey to find the perfect side dish to white rice. Komari says that her mother takes these journeys quite often, and admits that she was rather resentful of her mother for being gone so much when she was a child. But she has since gotten used to it.
- Shared Family Quirks: Agrees with her father that dairy products don't go well with rice. Appropriately enough, their worst gifts are dishes that mixes rice with dairy products.

- Strong Family Resemblance: Mentions that she looks just like her mother.
- Tomboy: Has been one since childhood, but would like to become more girly.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Kasumi's girly girl.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Has feminine tastes in clothing (uniform aside, she's very enthusiastic about her frilly headband, which was a gift from her mother) and is a very good cook.
- Trademark Favorite Food
- Turtle Stew. (JPN/NA Version)
- Okonomiyaki. (European/PAL Version)
Kasumi teaches at the schoolhouse in Tsuyukusa, specifically the younger classes. Most of her time is spent at work, leading to her leaving early in the morning and not being available again until later afternoon.
She's generally very aloof and almost cold, which leads her to often be isolated from other people. In particular, she is distrustful of men because of her past, though she tries to be polite with those she knows somewhat well.
Kasumi unlocks on Summer 15th.
- Abusive Parent: Her father was emotionally abusive, and tried to pressure her out of her teaching job. He is among the reasons why she dislikes men.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Quite reserved, and admits to preferring solitude or female company.
- Beware the Nice Ones: In her dark blue love event, she pulls a naginata on someone who was peeping on the hot springs. After charging at him, the screen turns to black and both he and the naginata are gone. Presumably she just had him arrested, but the first thought is that she killed him.
- Does Not Like Men: Acts noticeably colder to the male farmer, though he obviously becomes an exception, should the player choose to romance her. Kasumi mentions that part of her dislike came from being bullied and teased by men, usually about her pursuit of knowledge.
- Does Not Like Spam: Nata de Coco.
- Hime Cut: A variant, with her bangs swept aside, and a ponytail. Her post-marriage image makes it more obvious.
- Hot Teacher: The pretty teacher of the schoolhouse.
- If It's You, It's Okay: The premise of her romantic relationship with the farmer. Though this also involves trying to open up a bit towards other men, including apologizing to Ginjiro for shoving him away, when he had merely meant to hug her in his typical, overzealous way.
- Last Girl Wins: Should she be married, as she's the last bachelorette to unlock, not counting Inari.
- Let's Wait a While: G-Rated. One of her love events has the farmer try to kiss her, but she stops him because holding hands is all she can tolerate at that moment. Her next love event has her try to kiss him, but she changes her mind and says she'll wait until their wedding.
- Naginatas Are Feminine: Komari mentions that she's skilled in one, and Kasumi can be seen training on the mornings of her free days.
- Ojou: Polite and proper, though not really rich.
- OOC Is Serious Business: One of her love events has her talk about and wanting to try out a romantic poem. Komari notes that Kasumi would normally blow such poetry off, saying that love is only for fools.

- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Komari's tomboy.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Kenchin Soup.
- Warrior Poet: Despite being trained in naginata combat and the usage of a bow, she mostly spends her time contemplating life and enjoying poetry.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Classically trained, reserved, and trained in traditionally female weapons.
Wayne works as the postal carrier for Westown, though he also delivers for Lulukoko, Tsuyukusa, and the farmer. His job sends him all over the towns for deliveries, though he spends most of his time at the postal office afterwards. At night he can often be found at Westown's restaurant.
He's an absolute gentleman and quite a charmer, easily dropping compliments for women left and right. Nonetheless, he's not a playboy — just someone who truly thinks all women are beautiful and deserve to be treated as such. He does still have a large assembly of fangirls that want to spend their lunch break with him, which he is happy to oblige to.
Despite his reputation as a women charmer, he actually gets along well with men, too. Even if some of their interactions involve him being teased for his many fangirls.
Wayne is available from the start of the game.
- The Ace: Incredibly charming, good-looking, and popular with everybody he comes into contact with. Brad even calls him a perfect, flawless human being that nobody can hold anything against.
- Bookworm: Quite fond of reading, and often borrows books from Ford. Unlike Ford's more serious preferences, Wayne enjoys stories about adventure and with romance in them.
- The Charmer: A complete sweet-talker at heart, partly from his grandfather raising him with the idea that women should be complimented. As Brad admits, one can easily fall into a knee-deep conversation with Wayne without even realizing that it happened.
- Chick Magnet: Extremely popular with women, to the point of having a fanclub.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Dating him reveals that he has a little of a jealous, if not slightly possessive, streak to himself. His The Taste of Jealousy event has him get jealous that Frank and Brad are talking casually to the farmer and leads her away from them. Since the former is the farmer's uncle and the latter is happily married, his jealousy is a little silly, though Wayne admits that he's being irrational.
- Distressed Dude: Ends up in a pinch in his friendship event, where he gets cornered by an overzealous fan of his and demands to get engaged to him this very minute. The player can choose to interfere themselves and save him or see how he can get out of this situation himself.
- Does Not Like Spam
- Coconut Milk.
- Wayne's Weakness reveals that he's actually not that fond of yogurt, but he's embarrassed to admit it because he thinks it's immature to be picky about food.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: His soft features and lovely blond hair led to several people mistaking him for a girl when he was younger. Wayne says he made sure to cause a lot of trouble as a child, so that everyone knew he was a rough little boy.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Played for laughs, when Frank admits that he'd absolutely make Wayne his wife, if Wayne were a woman. But don't worry, he was only joking. A little bit.
- Everyone Loves Blondes: Loved by women, and everyone else because of his friendly disposition.
- First Guy Wins: Should the player choose to marry Wayne, as he's the first bachelor to be met.
- Gentleman and a Scholar: Aside from being a polite charmer, he knows a lot about astrology, as he admits to having studied it as a child.
- Loony Fan: One friendship event has a crazy fangirl propose marriage to Wayne, admitting that she's been in love with him for ages and even saying that their romance came from conversations she had with him in her head every day. Wayne politely declines the immediate proposal, saying that they should get to know each other properly before they take this step, with some actual conversations.
- Must Have Caffeine: Implied, with several of his preferred gifts being coffee-related drinks.
- Nice Guy: Comes across as a womanizer, when he's just a very friendly guy that was raised by his grandfather to always be nice to women.
- Nice Hat: Wears a cowboy hat.
- Odd Friendship: With Ford. Wayne is a charming guy that has many women falling for him, and is always polite to them, though he's rather hesitant when it comes to having to turn them down. While Ford has his share of fangirls, too, he doesn't realize this and his blunt demeanor often pushes them away.
- Picky Eater: Admits to having been a picky eater when he was younger, but has done his best to not be over the years. He still can't really stomach yogurt, though.
- Pretty Boy: Slender and blond with pretty facial features, and incredibly popular with women (and Frank).
- Raised by Grandparents: Was left with his grandparents for most of his childhood, since his parents were too busy enjoying the shared love of travelling the world. However, Wayne still has a good relationship with his parents, often communicating with them through letters.
- Southern Gentleman: Says that his grandfather brought him up a proper gentleman; true to form, he's a polite, suave and well-spoken charmer with a Southern drawl.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Café Mocha.
- Unexpected Virgin: G-Rated. His final love event has him invite the farmer over for dinner, and he mentions how nice it is to cook dinner together. Commenting that he probably has a lot of experience in doing that leads to Wayne being insulted. He may have a lot of female admirers, but he never invited them over.
- Urban Legend Love Life: Prides himself on being a gentleman and never taking advantage of anyone, though most people still retain a joking idea of locking up their daughters when it comes to him.
Ford is the stern and eccentric doctor of Westown who rarely leaves his home, though he drops by the restaurant a lot. His free time spent at home often involves creating and improving medicine, which he advertises needing guinea pigs for.
He's very tight-lipped and speaks rather bluntly, leaving many to find it difficult to interact with him and even believing him to be rude. However, he's just not very good at the social aspects of being a doctor — though it's clear that he does care about his patients' health.
Despite his scientific view of the world and strained social interactions, Ford turns out to be rather popular with women. Not that he cares much for this, as he believes love is nothing more than chemical workings in the brain.
Ford unlocks on Spring 6th.
- Abusive Parents: Of the neglectful variety. His parents seldom showed care or affection towards him as a child, only pushing him to pursue a medical career, and his mysophobia stems in part from his mother's hoarding habit.
- Amazon Chaser: In his dark blue flower event, expresses admiration for the female farmer's physical strength while he's taking care of her... and then proceeds to chastise himself for staring at a patient like that.
- Anger Born of Worry: His blunt ways when talking to friends and even patients comes because he worries when they get sick, reprimanding them for being stupid and how they should have been more careful.Brad: Enough... sass... Medicine, please...
- Biseinen: Tall, slender and attractive, but not quite young enough to be considered a bishounen.
- Bookworm: Has a library for his personal use, though he loans out books to friends.
- Clueless Chick Magnet: Has an entire event centered around this. Despite seemingly having little interest in romance, Wayne says that he's quite popular with women regardless.
- Cordon Bleugh Chef: Ford likes cooking - it is a science, after all - and isn't exactly bad at it when it comes to the chemical process itself, but he cooks for nutrition, not for taste. On several occasions he laments the fact that nothing he makes comes out tasting good.
- Defrosting Ice King: Starts off as cold and aloof to the player, telling them to not talk to him unless they require his medical skills. But befriending, or even romancing, him has him warm up and see them as a good friend, and potential spouse.
- Ditzy Genius: A Fine Line Between Genius And Stupidity makes it clear that Ford is a brilliant doctor, but Brad admits that he's kind of a crackpot at times, too.
- Does Not Like Spam: Youkan.
- For Science!: Often concocts and tests medicine on himself and friends, in order to improve his doctor skills. And one love event has Ford decide to study the effect kissing has on his heart rate. For science, of course.
- Forgets to Eat: Occasionally focuses too much on his work and forgets to eat. Ford berates himself over this because, as a doctor, he should know better than to skip meals.
- Freaky Is Cool: Everyone calls him a weirdo. Ford is rather happy with himself that way and thinks it's normal to be strange. He's rather bemused when the farmer cites his oddity to be why she loves him during a love event, since he thinks she's the only one to consider that attractive.
- The Glasses Gotta Go: Rare male example. During his wedding, he ditches the spectacles.
- Ice King: Has a distant and frosty demeanor along with little interest in romantic companionship (at least, initially). Of course, it's less on purpose and more due to the fact that he's completely and utterly dense towards the prospect of romantic advances than anything else, though.
- I Am Not Handsome: When asking why the farmer fell in love with him during a love event, citing his good looks upsets him. Not only because Ford feels the farmer cares more about outward appearances, but also because he doesn't consider himself attractive.
- In-Series Nickname: Wayne says that several adoring women have taken to calling Ford "Crystal King".
- Innocently Insensitive: His blunt demeanor leads to this. He caused an admirer of his to burst into tears when he tells her to not come to the clinic anymore without medical reason, not realizing that she came to visit him because she had a crush on him.
- Loners Are Freaks: A very blunt, neurotic and socially awkward introvert who rarely leaves the clinic and has a very small friend group, who states himself that he's used to being called a weirdo by everyone around him. Played with in that it doesn't exactly bother him - he likes himself that way, and he's rather pleased (if initially baffled) if the farmer says that they fancy him because of it.
- Mad Doctor: Not in a malicious sense, but a lot of his medicine is homemade and untested beyond himself, which is why he advertises for guinea pigs. He does pay well for those, and sometimes the medicine works.
- Neat Freak: 'Finicky about cleanliness' in Wayne's words. He inspects the farmer for dirt stains before bluntly declaring them 'passable', and some of his greeting dialogue includes him admonishes them for kicking up dust.
- No Social Skills: His blunt speech and tending to assess people by how useful they might be to him, his circle of friends is really small. Not that he seems to care. Quality over quantity is better, in his opinion.
- Oblivious to Love: Cannot figure out romantic love or why people act oddly because of it. He thought one woman kept coming to the clinic because she was interested in learning more about medicine. Even his love events have him mistake his racing heart for a symptom of an impending cold. He does get better about it.
- Odd Friendship: With Wayne. Ford is a lot more aloof and cold, but he's nonetheless rather popular with women. Difference is that Ford doesn't understand their intentions and often bluntly scares them off. Contrasting with Wayne, who is aware of his charming personality and knows how to talk with women, but having difficulty in letting them down, even in a gentle manner.
- Real Men Hate Sugar: Dislikes sweet and sugary things, probably part of his doctor personality.
- Smart People Wear Glasses: An extremely intelligent, bespectacled doctor-scientist.
- Stoic Spectacles: There's little emotion he displays on a day-to-day basis.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Befriending or romancing him reveals a much softer side of his, in contrast to his usual cold and blunt attitude. Taken Up to Eleven in his orange flower event.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Pistou Soup.
- Truth Serum: One love event has him create one in powder form, which he ends up taking on accident, and embarrasses himself in front of the farmer by admitting his deepest feelings for her.
- Tsurime Eyes:
Ludus is the handsome handyman from Lulukoko and runs the Relacion shop. He spends most of his time in Lulukoko, running his shop, and his days off are spent on the beach or dropping by Carosello for lunch.
He's often called upon doing odd jobs around town, with the twins having him fix or upgrade their possessions. Since Ludus acts like a big brother figure to most, he's well-liked almost everywhere he goes. The children from Lulukoko especially love him.
Ludus tends to be rather dense when it comes to other people's feelings, especially those of women, which is something that the twins like to tease him about. Nonetheless, he's a very straightfoward person.
Ludus unlocks on Spring 15th.
- Big Brother Instinct: Acts this way towards most people he meets.
- Busman's Holiday: Mentions that most of his work involves carpentry, but when he has a day off, he usually ends up carving or building something for personal use or as a gift.
- Childhood Friend: With the twins, Iluka and Siluka.
- Does Not Like Spam: Sea Urchin.
- Extreme Doormat: Does whatever Iluka asks him to do, often fixing her things when she brings them to him. Though he admits that being constantly called a dork by her is irking him.
- Fowl-Mouthed Parrot: Showing him a parrot has Ludus ask the player to please not teach it any 'funny' words, as he says he's seen parrots that knew some very 'funny' words.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: His shop is basically a jack-of-all-trades store. He does a lot of capentry work, offers upgrades to the farmer's tools, and even does some tailoring.
- Like Brother and Sister: His relationship with the twins is this. His later love events even explore how his relationship with them is different from the one he has with the farmer.
- Oblivious to Love: After having been everyone's 'big brother' for such a long time, Ludus cannot really differentiate between familial and romantic love. He's quick to call the farmer part of his family, but practically everyone in Lulukoko has to call him out on it, before Ludus realizes that he's in love.
- Raised by Grandparents: Tototara raised him alongside the twins.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Deep-Fried Fish Cakes.
- Unwinnable by Mistake: The localized version of the game ended up causing a glitch in the game, if the player chose to marry Ludus. While married to Ludus, the Beverage Bash festival in Lulukoko couldn't be triggered, since it resulted in a white screen, and the player had to forego participating in that festival. A patch was eventually released that fixed this problem.
- Workaholic: Mentions that he still does woodworking on his days off.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has electric-blue hair.
Hinata works at Ra Man's Wholesale as a general store, but is aspiring to become an actor in his free-time. When he isn't working, he likes to wander around the various towns and often goes to the various towns' restaurants to try their food.
Hinata is bright and sociable, always having a big smile on his face. He comes across as a little dense and carefree about things, but when it comes to his acting, it turns out that he has quite some talent.
He is very good with people and children, often playing with the children in Tsuyukusa.
Hinata unlocks on Summer 5th.
- Butt-Monkey: Often at the end of his friends' jokes, though he takes it well.
- The Charmer: Very good in verbally charming the customers at Ra Man's Wholesales and getting sales. Moriya mentions being proud of Hinata's skill in knowing exactly what the customer wants to hear.
- Curtains Match the Windows: Has brown hair and brown eyes.
- Does Not Like Spam: Coleslaw.
- Friend to All Children: Can be seen playing with the local children on his days off. He even tells the farmer that he sometimes loses on purpose, so they can have fun and even enjoy winning.
- Green-Eyed Monster: The most possessive of the bachelors, though it never goes too far. Several of his lines while dating him have Hinata talk about wanting to keep the farmer to himself, and saying that she shouldn't smile so cutely in front of other people, since he wants that smile all to himself.
- I Want to Be a Real Man: Often tries to act manly and cool, so he can be more popular and be seen as a 'tough guy'. Since his friends jokingly tease him and he has a rather dorky nature, it doesn't work a lot.
- Massive Numbered Siblings: He's the third of six children, having four brothers and one sister.
- Neat Freak: Talking to him in his home, he mentions that he likes keeping things neat and tidy.
- Older Than They Look: Looks the youngest out of the bachelors.
- Only Has Same-Sex Admirers: Complains that all of his fans are guys.
- The Pollyanna: Enthusiastic, a hard worker, and generally very chipper.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Not very prominent, but given the rating of the game, he's got quite a mouth.
- Smarter Than You Look: Appears loud, brash, and carefree, but Hinata's actually very good at his job and can read people pretty well after little interaction with them.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Tofu Steak.
- Waiting for a Break: He currently works at Ra Man Wholesale, but what he really wants is to become an actor. If you marry him, he excitedly reveals during his post-marriage event that he finally managed to land the lead role in a play.
Yuzuki works as a jewelry maker and lives with his grandparents, Umekichi and Omiyo. He spends most of his time in Tsuyukusa, often in his home or at Ra Man's Wholesales, chatting with Hinata. He can be seen eating lunch with Hinata in the various restaurants on the latter's days off.
Yuzuki is soft-spoken and kind, generally having a calm disposition. Though despite this, he can prove to have quite a stubborn streak.
He was very sickly as a child, leading his parents to leave him to be raised by his grandparents. He has improved since, but works hard to ensure his health remains this way. But his past leads to him sometimes worrying a lot about other people's health.
Yuzuki unlocks on Summer 26th.
- Childhood Friend: With Komari. Since he was too frail to play outside with others, she'd drop by his home and they'd play less strenuous games.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Was abandoned at his grandparents' place because of his health as a child, and his parents never bother to visit him. Yuzuki still speaks of them in friendly terms, though, even cheerfully commenting that his younger brother was made head of the family. This means that he was effectively disowned.
- Does Not Like Spam: Coffee.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: Several people mistook him to be a girl as a child because he was thin and pale. He still seems to have some issues with this, as he refuses to help Hinata practice his lines, if he wants him to read a girl's part.
- Ill Boy: Was born with a weak constitution and health, but has improved considerably.
- Let's Wait a While: G-Rated. His last love event has him give the farmer a kiss on the cheek, saying that a kiss on the lips will have to wait for another day.
- Nice Guy: Perpetually sweet and polite.
- Parental Abandonment: Was left with his grandparents as a baby because his parents didn't want to look after a sickly son.
- Raised by Grandparents: Umekichi and Omiyo are basically parents to him, as they spent so much effort on caring for him throughout his childhood.
- Sickly Child Grew Up Strong: Has improved his health since his childhood.
- Stronger Than They Look: One of his love events has him easily lift two heavy boxes, where one was already too heavy for the hardworking farmer. Yuzuki mentions that he worked hard to overcome his ill health, implying that working out was part of the process.
- Sweet Tooth: Several of his preferred gifts are sweets. He mentions that they were given to him as a reward for taking bitter medicine as a child.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Yomogi Dumplings.
- What If the Baby Is Like Me?: Yuzuki will worry that his child will inherit his sickly condition. They don't.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has deep aqua-colored hair.
Inari is a guardian deity in-training, though much further along than Dessie or even Witchie. They reside in the shrine of Tsuyukusa, never leaving their spot as they take their duties very seriously.
They are very proper and gentle, often greeting the farmer and wondering how things are going for them. Due to their age, they speak a lot more formally than other characters, though they are not unfamiliar with more modern terms.
If the player chooses to marry Inari, they will not really live with them, similar to previous divine spouses like the Harvest Goddess or the Harvest King. They would also not have a child with the farmer, though the DLC added to the Japanese and North American version of the game added this possibility.
Inari unlocks on Fall 1st.
- Ambiguous Gender: Similar to Jamie, Inari's gender will always be the opposite of the one the player chose their farmer to be. Fitting for someone named after an ambiguously gendered deity.
- Angelic Beauty: Has delicate features, long hair, and wears beautifully-adorned robes.
- Antiquated Linguistics: Played with because of Inari's high age, resulting in them talking in older ways and using polite terms. But their interest in humans and their society has led them to keep abreast with most modern speech patterns.
- Baleful Polymorph: Reverts into a small, white fox for a while when overusing their power.
- Big Brother Worship: Mentions that their Master is a relative of theirs, whom they have always respected. And this has increased upon learning that their Master watched over Tsuyukusa while Inari was sleeping.
- Date Peepers: One love event has Inari and the farmer spy on a girl that is trying to work up the courage to talk to her crush. Their final love event has Dessie and Witchie spying on Inari's date with the farmer.
- Delivery Stork: How the DLC deals with giving the farmer a child with Inari. The Master sees how much the farmer and Inari love each other, so they choose to create a child that resembles the two of them and it appears on the farmer's doorstep.
- Does Not Like Spam: Kimchi.
- Gender-Neutral Writing: Occasionally runs into some awkward-sounding sentences in an attempt to avoid assigning a specific gender to Inari or their Master. One of Kasumi's love events does end up referring to Inari as male, who doesn't correct this, despite standing there and being female in this event. Though this might be because Kasumi simply believes Inari to be a male deity.
- Gold and White Are Divine: Wears robes prominently white and adorned with gold.
- Inconvenient Attraction: While curious about humans, Inari becomes upset upon realizing that they've fallen in love with the farmer. Not only because of their different lifespans, but because their guardian duties would mean Inari would never lead a 'normal' life with their beloved.
- Intrigued by Humanity: Finds humans fascinating and hopes to learn about human life.
- Invisible to Normals: Cannot be seen by most people, though Inari says that small children tend to be able to see them and other guardian deities. But adults like the farmer being a rare occurrence.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Tries to pull this during a confession, stating that they would wholeheartedly congratulate the farmer, should they ever find another mortal to be happy with.
- Keigo: Speaks this way in the Japanese version.
- Kitsune: Has fox ears and a tail.
- Last Choice Wins: Should the player choose to marry Inari, as they are the last potential love interest unlocked.
- Literal-Minded: Due to their inexperience with humans, they sometimes take figurative speech seriously.
- Little Bit Beastly: Justified, being a fox god and having the animal characteristics of it.
- MayflyDecember Romance: Knows that they will outlive humans by thousands of years, and this causes Inari quite some grief when pursued romantically.
- Miko: The robes give this appearance.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Female Inari gets married in a red kimono, while the male Inari wears a blue one.
- Really 700 Years Old: Several centuries old, including whatever time they've spent asleep.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Their English speech pattern is very polite and results in long, convoluted sentences to get across the polite speech they use in Japanese.
- Shrouded in Myth: Myths portraying Inari tends to claim being very tall and handsome, and insistent on cleanliness of their shrine, as they will curse anyone who defiles their shrine. While Inari is fond of cleanliness, they would never curse anyone, and their size makes them appear more cute than handsome.
- Speaks Fluent Animal: Regularly converses with foxes.
- Tareme Eyes/Tsurime Eyes: Subtly done in the official art depicting the female and male Inari, making it the one noticeable, physical difference. There is no in-game distinction between the two.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Inarizushi.
- What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Among the things they don't understand is romantic love.
The DLC for Trio of Towns includes, among other things, the addition of two new marriage candidates. The pink-haired MC of the festivals, called Stephanie, and the dog-suited animal expert, Woofio.
Due to the nature of the DLC giving them a background and love route, expect spoiler-tropes.
Stephanie is the MC of the various festivals. She lives in Westown (though it's never specified where), but spends most of her days wandering through all the towns, ending up in Westown at night.
Stephanie is very energetic and friendly, eager to get to know the player when they first meet. As an MC, she has many talents from all fields, making her something of a jack-of-all-trades. She apparently trained tirelessly to gain these skills, wanting the MC job so she could make plenty of money for her poor family.
If the player has the DLC and entered at least one festival that she commentates, she'll appear on Summer 3rd and become a potential marriage candidate for the male farmer.
- Big Eater: Stephanie admits one of her interests is doing food walks, and she likes eating in general.
- Career Versus Man: Festival moderators are prohibited from having romantic relationships, as love is viewed as a distraction. However, Stephanie mentions early on that she does want to settle down and have kids some day. She just wants to concentrate on her work for now.
- Does Not Like Spam: She hates Mitten Crab Soup.
- Fourth Date Marriage: Her green Love Event is the pivotal moment. The player and she will get married during the event, with her heart jumping from green to red, or she and the player will remain as friends for life.
- I Choose to Stay: In her last love event, she's given orders to move away from the area, something she admits she doesn't want to do, but feels she doesn't have a choice in. Luckily, Saffron knew about her wishes and devised a plan to convince her master to recognize her as a true professional, allowing her to remain.
- Just Friends: All of her events can be seen without getting romantic, though not proposing on her final event will lead to her relationship with the player remaining as this.
- Master of All: Event moderators are expected of being skilled in all sorts of entertainment.
- Nice Hat: Her striped top hat, with a ribbon that matches her tie.
- Permanently Missable Content: If the player does not propose to Stephanie during her final event, she cannot be married anymore for that file.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Cheese Fondue.
- Training from Hell: She casually mentions practicing singing while lifting dumbbells under a waterfall, and another reveals her mentor's training involves literal blood, sweat, and tears in some cases.
- You Gotta Have Pink Hair: Stephanie mentions that, despite what people may believe, her bubblegum-pink hair color is all natural. Proven to be true, as her child will have said hair color.
The dog-suited animal expert and judge of the animal festivals. Woofio lives in Lulukoko (though it's implied he simply sleeps outside) and will spend all day there.
Woofio comes off playful and eccentric, as any man who wears a dog costume all day, every day would. He loves animals of all kinds and studies their behaviors constantly as an animal trainer. He'll even imitate them to better understand them. This includes crawling around like a turtle or even sitting on the sea floor pretending to be a clam.
Woofio doesn't interact with most of the townspeople and prefers to keep to himself. No one knows what he looks like under his suit.
If the player has the DLC and entered at least one animal festival that he judges, he'll appear on Summer 13th and become a potential marriage candidate for the female farmer.
- Animate Inanimate Object: Due to a spell, Woofio is an actual, walking dog suit.
- Ascended Extra: Woofio being a contest judge, wasn't even intractable in his first appearance in Story of Seasons (2014).
- Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Essentially, though he likely lacks things that are necessary to cover with his overalls, as he is a fursuit. He also wears a collar and Frisbee hat, presumably because he simply can.
- Become a Real Boy: Part of his events involve helping him turn himself back into a human. Witchie helps with this, because Woofio's state was caused by another witch.
- Beneath the Mask: Underneath his goofy stage persona, he's a mature individual troubled over hiding he isn't a human to the point he has never had any human friends and too keenly aware of how strange he appears to others.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He's always wearing a dog costume, peppers his speech with woofs and dog puns, and people generally find him odd and keep a distance from him. Regardless, Woofio is also a world famous animal trainer and judge for two different contests with a genuine ability to understand animals. However, Woofio outside his stage persona is rather mature and calm, hinting he's just playing up his stage persona by choice to give people more a reason to stay away from him.
- Dancing Pants: There is no body inside that suit.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Despite his silly mannerisms, Woofio has the darkest background out of the bachelors. He was turned into nothing but an empty suit as a young child, losing his ability to eat and feel. Because of his condition, he kept his distance from people in fear his secret would get out, further fueling his isolation from humans. Even though he's still investigating a way to undo his curse, he admits he's accepted the possibility of being an empty suit for the rest of his life.
- Does Not Like Spam: Hates Curry Rice. According to him, he simply does not like spicy food and onions.
- Feel No Pain: As a costume, he has no ability to feel pain. Him feeling pain is his first sign he's a human again.
- Fourth Date Marriage: Woofio's green Love Event is the pivotal moment. The player and Woofio will get married during the event, with his heart jumping from green to red, or he and the player will remain as friends for life. Amusingly, showing him a pendant after marrying him has him acknowledge this. Somewhat justified in the same dialogue showing him a pendant as he believes if he tried dating, he would have had more opportunities to start doubting himself.
- Friend to All Children: Despite having difficulties getting along with people in general, Woofio does interact well with the villages' children, and is shown to have concern for them.
- Friend to All Living Things: All animals are considered his friends to him, and a comment by Inari reveals animals feel the same way. Animals were also his only friends for years while he was living in a forest, which is why he's out of touch with people.
- Goofy Suit: Woofio is always wearing a dog suit, even when he is not working, and nobody knows what he looks like inside. There's a good reason for that, too.
- Hidden Depths: His Friend Event shows him doing his training to become even better at understanding animals and his dedication at becoming an animal trainer. His Love Events reveal that his actual personality is much more grounded and mature than the whimsical Woofio character.
- Relating to the above, in spite of insisting he's used to being treated like an outcast, his insistence that he and the farmer should stop spending so much time together because of the stigma associated with him implies he has low self-esteem.
- Some of his dialogues imply he has some interest in subjects like cultures and history. Considering his difficulty understanding people, it's also likely it's to help better fit in.
- Just Friends: All of his events can be seen without getting romantic, though not proposing on his final event will lead to his relationship with the player remaining as this. Justified, as Woofio had to keep his distance from people because of him being nothing but an empty suit for years, and he wouldn't mind keeping his first real friend like this.
- Love at First Sight: He's implies in his proposal event and admits to Daryl in his version of the A Busy Day event he was attracted to the farmer since they first met. However, he never will act on them unless you propose to him.
- Made of Iron: Woofio tumbles off of a cliff, but acts as if nothing happened. Justified, as he is nothing but a suit and, hence, cannot feel pain.
- Manchild: He cultivates a playful image as a judge and tries to keep things light. However, his Love Events reveal that he's capable of being serious and his last two events even have him speak like a regular human, showing that even his speech is all part of an image.
- Morphic Resonance: Downplayed. The color of his suit's eyes and frisbee hat appear to be based on his human appearance, if one sees what his child looks like.
- Never Bareheaded: He never takes off his suit, which never takes off his hat. Even after being turned human again, Woofio never takes his costume off on screen, as it has become his face to the world.
- The Needless: As a costume, he doesn't need to eat or sleep.
- Nice Hat: A bright turquoise Frisbee hat with a yellow tennis ball on top.
- Not Good with People: Type 1. Woofio calls himself a friend to all animals, but has difficulty understanding humans and tends to keep his distance from them. The reason for this is due to him living with only animals for years and trying to hide the fact he isn't human anymore.
- No Social Skills: Downplayed. Woofio can interact with people alright for the most part, but it's clear he's not as good as interacting to people as he is with animals (though this is also because most people keep their distance from him regardless). Thus, the player farmer is the only person he considers his friend.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Unlike Stephanie, he's always known as Woofio. This is because he doesn't remember what his original name was, according to him when choosing a married nickname.
- Permanently Missable Content: If the player does not propose to Woofio during his final event, he cannot be married anymore for that file.
- Speaks Fluent Animal: He understand animals' speech because of the magic that turned him into a suit.
- Stepford Smiler: Woofio appears cheerful and carefree. Emphasize on appears. He's fully aware about how weird he looks to everyone and despite acting like it doesn't bother him, it clearly does. The fact that he's a living suit and having to hide this has left him further isolated.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Smoothie.
- Walking the Earth: Woofio has done a lot of travelling over the course of his career mainly because he doesn't have a home to return to anymore.
- Was Once a Man: Woofio was originally a human, but got turned into a living dog suit by a witch many years ago as a child. Completing his events results in the spell being reversed and him having a human body again.
- The Unreveal: Woofio's actual appearance as a human is never shown to the player. Even after regaining a human body, he keeps his suit on and anytime he does take it off, it's implied to have happened off-screen. Though according to Daryl's letter in his version of A Busy Day, Woofio without his costume is a kind-looking and handsome young man.
- Verbal Tic: In Japanese, he tends to end his sentence with "wan"note and was changed into dog-related puns and the occasional "woof" for the English version.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Woofio's hair color is never actually shown, but his children have bright turquoise hair.
- Younger Than They Look: According to himself, he's not drastically older than the about early twenties player character, which implies that he's the youngest of the contest judges (although he's no less accomplished and experienced than they are). This is also supported by Daryl in his letter to the player farmer married to Woofio, where Daryl admits his surprise that Woofio is so young out of costume.

- Shared Family Quirks: He and Komari don't believe that milk goes well with rice. Both of their most hated gifts involve rice mixed with milk.

- Hidden Depths: At first, he might come off as a short-tempered man who only cares about money, but as the player gets to know him he shows how he really respects his employees (even Sumomo, on whom he is the toughest) and wants to see the town prosper despite his past giving him trust issues.

The farmer's family in the game.
Daryl was originally against the idea of the farmer moving out and starting up a farm, but eventually relents and is the one to give them Farming Tips to complete, which serve as one of the goals in the game.
Marlena and Lynn are much more open to the idea and encouraged the farmer to go through with it. After completing the first round of Farming Tips, Lynn will drop by for a visit on the player's farm for a few days. Marlena becomes a visitor, after the second round of Farming Tips is completed.
- Big Sibling Worship: Lynn won't admit it, but she idolizes the farmer a lot. After visiting their farm, she will begin to start her own little garden to take care of and wants to get a pet.

- Fantasy-Forbidding Father: Daryl is a business man and doesn't approve of the player's decision to run a farm.
- Hidden Depths: Daryl actually turns out to be Mr D, the tough rival the player needs to defeat for the last Farming Tip.

Considering how tough of an opponent he is as Mr D, he still has considerable farming knowledge.
- Like Father, Like Child: Turns out to be the case for Daryl and the farmer. Frank and the player aren't the only ones fond of farming. Daryl was a farmer, too, before he was forced to give it up. The player's love for farming and animals may come from Daryl.

- Salaryman: Daryl works in foreign trade.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Daryl is much more stern and serious, compared to his easy-going brother.
The child the farmer will have with their respective spouse.
The pregnancy event will only occur once the player has obtained the bigger bed and seen the spouse's couple event, with the exception of Stephanie and Woofio, who have no such event.
The child will grow from a newborn into a toddler and then into a child over the course of about half an in-game year. They will not grow older once they become a child and will not help out with any farm chores.
The child can be male or female, with the gender set on the day of the birth event.
- Animal Motifs: Duck, at least for the toddler stage. Their clothes are a duck-themed onesie, with appropriately orange, striped legs, and a cap with the rim being the bill. The motif drops once they grow into a child.
- Curtains Match the Windows: Only the case for Komari's and Hinata's children, who have brown hair and eyes.
- Hair Color Dissonance: No matter who the other parent of the child is, the map icon for them will always have blond hair and blue eyes. Especially strange when the child inherits the dark skin of the Lulukoko spouses.
- Idiot Hair: Prominent in the toddler phase and is retained in the child-form.
- Nice Hat: The toddler wears a duck-themed cap backwards.
- Overnight Age-Up: Once the toddler has spent about one-and-a-half months crawling around the farmhouse, they suddenly age up by several years into a fully-fledged child.

- The son wears regular brown pants and a vest, with a gingham shirt underneath.
- The daughter also wears a brown vest, and a gingham dress.
- Strong Family Resemblance: The child's sprite is the same as the one used for the farmer in their memories, but the hair and eye color will be that of the spouse.
- Sweet Tooth: They love to receive dessert foods like ice cream or pudding.
- Theme Naming
- Hinata's offered names for a daughter are all plant-based.
- Ford's suggested names for either gender are all periodic elements. This was more noticeable in the Japanese version, where he suggested Rin for a daughter, which is the Japanese term for Phosphorous. The English translated altered that name into Marie.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Pancakes.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
- Electric-Blue for Ludus.
- Purple for Siluka and Iluka.
- White for Inari's magically-created child.
- Pink for Stephanie.
