Mars is a resident of Portia with whom the player can develop a friendship. He is the town tool craftsman. He can be found manning his shop Total Tools during the day.

He and his wife Carol have three daughters, Molly, Polly, and Dolly. He is a friendly family man who is dedicated to his wife and daughters. He loves to gamble at the games in Django's Gaming Hall in his free time.

BackgroundEdit

Mars is a native of Portia, as his family came with the first wave of settlers about 80 years ago. Continuing his family's legacy, Mars runs the only tool shop in town. Hardworking and unassuming, Mars is often stressed about money and how he'll afford a better future for his three daughters.

Personal lifeEdit

Mars was born on Summer of Day 18 in Portia. Mars dedicates his time to running the only tool shop in Portia. At some point in his life, he met Carol and had three kids: Molly, Polly, and Dolly. Mars has difficulty with planning on how to use the family's money, only being saved by his wife's ability to manage the financial affairs.

Social talk ChatEdit

Social talk
Dialogue →

Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Mars once a day can increase his relationship by 1 point, or 2 points with the Smooth Talk skill; subsequent chatting, on the same day, only results in the same conversation without any relationship gain.

Mars's dialogue may change every day and every season. Mars may also comment about certain events or missions. Higher relationship levels also change Mars's dialogue.

Desire head icon DesiresEdit

The following items are desires, or wishes, which are randomly assigned to one or two characters per week. The player is required to be at least at Buddy level with Mars for him to be assigned a desire. More desires have a chance to appear as the player's friendship with Mars progresses; the new desires are added to the existing ones but do not replace them. Some characters may desire an item that they do not normally like.

In the event that Mars has a desire, gifting the wanted item will provide the higher tier points; otherwise, on non-desired events, the item gives the base point value. The birthday or festival day relationship bonus applies when gifting a desired item.

Social Dine DineEdit

If the player chooses to dine at The Round Table with Mars during a play date or date, it is recommended to order dishes Mars will like. If asked before ordering, Mars will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Mars will just give little hints. In the event that Mars does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Mars gives. It is recommended to order each of those dishes from different courses, ex. ordering one Appetizer, Meat, Vegetable, Dessert, and Drink course each, rather than five Desserts.

Social Relic Trade Relic tradeEdit

Mars occasionally uses the Relic Pieces Exchange board at the Museum to trade for relic pieces. Mars likes to look at particular completed relics, so after the player has donated such relics to the Museum or displayed them in their yard, Mars may come visit the Museum or the player's yard to view these relics. Such visits will earn the player relationship points each time, with the amount dependent upon the relic.
