McDonald is a resident of Portia with whom the player can develop a friendship. He is a rancher living outside of Portia, next to Sophie's Ranch. He raises horses and cows and dreams of one day opening a restaurant. He can often be found at his shop, McD's Jumpin' Livestock, or with his animals in the fenced area nearby.
McDonald's family has been raising animals on these lands since the founding of Portia. After he took over, McDonald slowly built his ranch into one of the largest in Portia. Never one to shy away from the spotlight, McDonald is always on the look out to become famous.
McDonald was born on Day 4 of Spring. His ancestors have been raising animals on the lands of Portia since its founding, eventually being handed down to McDonald. McDonald slowly built his ranch to become the largest in Portia. McDonald had been married and had kids, but they eventually divorced; his ex-wife took the kids while he took the ranch.
McDonald dreams of one day becoming famous and opening up a restaurant, selling beef burger patties and fries.
McDonald wears a multi-pocketed navy vest over a white checkered button-up shirt, slightly worn blue jeans, a wide brown belt, and brown boots. He wears a wide sombrero-style hat hanging off his back.
When befriending McDonald, his relationship network with other NPCs will also be affected, resulting in the player receiving favor points from those NPCs as well.
McDonald typically never leaves his ranch and can usually be found tending to his livestock or working in his farm store.
