Carol is a resident of Portia with whom the player can develop a friendship. She is the tailor of Portia town and the owner of the Clothing Store on Central Plaza. Her shop operates out of the same corner as her husband's shop, Total Tools.

Carol has three daughters with her husband Mars: Molly, Polly, and Dolly. She manages the financial affairs of her household, citing that her husband is bad with planning on how to use their money. She often can be found behind the counter at her store or exercising in Central Plaza with Martha.


As a girl, Carol lived in a house on a cliff overlooking the ocean. She loved the ocean smell and the sunlight glimmering on the waves. She gave all that up though when she married Mars and moved to Portia. She still likes to go on strolls on the beach when she's not busy. To help augment Mars' income, she opened up a clothing store in town. Her three daughters look up to her as the perfect role model.

If asked before ordering, Carol will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Carol will just give little hints. In the event that Carol does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Carol gives.
