An engineer from Vega 5, Mint was brought over by Gale to help with the road to Sandrock. Always reliable and on time, Mint is called upon for projects all over the Free Cities.


Personal summaryEdit

Mint grew up in an orphanage and enjoyed playing basketball. He began working as an engineer at a young age.

Mint takes frequent naps, and can sometimes be found napping during the day either under an Apple Tree outside Central Plaza or in a chair on the same café balcony where Pinky sleeps. If the player attempts to interact with him while napping, he will respond as normal, though he may remain sitting as if he were asleep.

Physical appearanceEdit

Mint has dark blackish-teal hair, fair skin, and almond eyes. He wears a yellow and blue vest over a half-tucked-in white polo shirt, medium blue jeans with a brown belt, brown laced shoes, a watch on his left wrist, and a cylindrical teal bag emblazoned with a gold star slung over his hips.

Related charactersEdit

Mint's closest connection in Portia is Gale, who has been a friend and father-like figure to him for a long time. They work together in improving the infrastructure of Portia.


When befriending Mint, his relationship network with other NPCs will also be affected, resulting in the player receiving favor points from Gale as well.


Arrives in Portia the next unoccupied Sunday during a Fireside meeting, after completing Fixing Ack.

While living in Portia for the Portia Bridge missions, Mint leaves the apartment before 8 am, heads to Central Plaza and sits on the bench in front of Portia Museum until 10:00, then goes to the bridge location to supervise. On weekdays, Gust and Albert also hang around the bridge, it seems the three of them are working on the project together. Mint spends the entire day there, then goes back to the apartments before 21:00, walking through the park where Issac plays cross five.

On days of bad weather, Mint walks back and forth from Central Plaza to the Portia bridge, and returns to Apartments around 20:30.

After completing Rescue in Ingall's Mine, Mint stays in Dr. Xu's Clinic for three days, then resumes his previous schedule (Eufaula Tunnel). Once the windmill quest is complete, Mint will hang around Central Plaza and Peach Plaza.

On Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, Mint walks from the Portia bridge to town, then naps in front of Papa Bear's house under an Apple Tree until late at night.

Mint is one of the potential bachelors that the player can romance.

Upon reaching Friend status at four full hearts, the player can confess their love to him with a Heart Knot. The successful confession is only possible after the player has completed South Block Development; Mint will always reject the player's Heart Knot if confessed to before that. In addition, Mint is the only character who will reject the player's confession if the player is already dating someone else.

If the confession is successful, a unique dialogue triggers without his relationship status changing to Boyfriend. In several days after that Gale will have a mission for the player to pick up. Mint will become the player's boyfriend after they complete this mission.

After Mint has become the player's boyfriend, upon reaching Lover status at eight full hearts, the player can then propose to him with a Wedding Ring. If the proposal is successful, his relationship status changes to Husband. Once certain other conditions have been met, Mint and the player can then try for children.

Additionally, upon meeting certain relationship levels, certain perks are rewarded.

Social talk ChatEdit

First meeting
  • Social talk
  • Mint ED 001
    I think Gale is on to something. By upgrading Portia's infrastructure, we can really jump start the surrounding economies as well.
  • Mint ED 002
    Being in Vega 5 all the time is kinda suffocating. Everyone is all high and mighty about how the city is the center of science in the Free Cities. Come on! We're just digging up trash and trying to figure out what it does.
  • Mint ED 003
    I've been to Sandrock a few times, don't remember much other than it being really, really, really hot.
  • Social talk I'm feeling drowsy again today...
  • Social talk Huh, I lost track of time again...but I got everything ready ahead of schedule.
  • Social talk How do I fall asleep standing up? I dunno, it just...happenzzzz....
  • Social talk Thanks for always helping out. I doubt Portia would be making half as much progress without you.
  • Social talk The mood here is totally different from Vega 5. Everyone seems so relaxed here.
  • Social talk Engineering isn't much different from building, really. It's just a matter of project scale.

  • Social talk You better be careful, I'll show no mercy.
  • Social talk Let me show you my full power!
  • Social talk Alright, let's go! Bring it!
  • Social talk Come on, let's see what you got!
  • Social talk Challenging me? I'm game!
  • Social talk Okay...let's start!
  • Social talk I admire your courage! Fine, I'll play with you.
  • Social talk Already starting? I was going to do some stretching.
  • Social talk Let's rumble!
  • Social talk Hahah, What do you think of me now?
  • Social talk You're not hurt are you? Don't worry about it, practice makes perfect.
  • Social talk Haha, that was super fun! You are pretty good!
  • Social talk Perfection!
  • Social talk Of course I was going to win! You underestimated me!
  • Social talk You're far too weak.
  • Social talk Humph, go home and practice more.
  • Social talk Alright, I win!
  • Social talk So you're only so-so.
  • Social talk Ah, I got some bruises from that.
  • Social talk Never imagined I could lose.
  • Social talk Oh, defeat...
  • Social talk I'm getting a little tired...
  • Social talk You are the most powerful opponent I've ever met!
  • Social talk I lost...
  • Social talk Ah, ow, ow, ow!
  • Social talk Why are you so strong?
  • Social talk I'm going for the win next time.
  • Social talk You won, be proud of it!
  • Social talk Mercy, mercy!
  • Social talk What a pity! I will not lose next time!
  • Social talk That was awful, I'll remember this!

Talk about favorite foods
  • Social talk That's a difficult question... I am not very picky, maybe I don't take too salty or unhealthy fried food.
Ask about work
  • (How's work?)
    • Social talk Not always. It really depends on projects, sometimes I'm very busy and sometimes I just take naps.
  • (Do you enjoy your job?)
    • Social talk My job is to help the Free Cities facilities grow, make everyone's life easier, you know? To be able to do that makes my job very satisfying.
Casual talk
  • Social talk I went to several places in the Free Cities for projects. I was most impressed with Walnut Groove. There were lots of handicrafts there, it made me very happy!
  • (You are very handsome.)
    • Social talk ... Really? A lot of people say that for some reason.
  • (You're from Vega 5, aren't you? You must know a lot about the old relics!)
    • Social talk No really. The researchers at Vega 5 are certainly very knowledgeable, but their work are often top secret. I'm just an engineer, they don't show interesting relics to me unless it's related to my job.
When date officially begins
  • Social talk Oh, there you are. What did you want to do first?
If you are late or miss the date
  • Social talk Where were you? Did something come up?

  • Social talk Let's not do this again.
  • Social talk Are...Are you cheating on me?, I don't want to know. Leave me alone, please.
Break up
  • Social talk I see...So this is what it's like to break up,it hurts so much.

  • Social talk Do you like sports? I used to be really into basketball. When I would shoot, I would hit nothing but net! Heh.
  • Social talk You're so busy every day...don't forget to rest, yeah?
  • Social talk I've known Mr. Gale since I was young. I'm glad he's doing better than he was back then.
  • Social talk Talking to you is like waking up after a good sleep. I always feel refreshed after.

  • Social talk We should hang out when you have time, I'd really like that.
  • Social talk Did I tell you that I saw you in a dream once? In it, we-- uh. Nothing. Forget about it.

  • Social talk I've had nightmares lately of something happening to you while I'm away...please don't work too recklessly.
  • Social talk I want to be someone you can rely on. I don't want you to regret choosing me.
  • Social talk I didn't think much of you when we met...but since then, you've become something like family to me. It's nice.
  • Social talk It's kind of strange, always thinking of you when I'm working...It feels like you're always by my side.
  • Social talk Leave the housework to me. I'm way ahead of schedule and I'm sure you have some commissions to do.
  • Social talk Sometimes I wake up thinking this is all a dream...but then I see you, and I remember how lucky I am to have met you.
  • Social talk Being married is more fun than I'd expected...but I never feel like I spend enough time with you. Is that selfish?
  • Social talk ...I've realized. So long as I'm with you, I think any place could feel like home. I would be happy in Sandrock, Vega 5 or long as you're there with me.
  • Social talk I think I could travel the world and not find another person like you. It really was fortunate that we crossed paths here.
  • Social talk I grew up in an orphanage at Vega 5. Their education and management were extremely strict. The children from there were assigned to the local government and research institutes.
  • Social talk I always thought that I would end up with a happy family, in the end it's just a passing dream.

  • Social talk What do you want?
  • Social talk Don't you have someone else to bother?

Day of the Bright Sun
  • Social talk This is my favorite holiday, so I practiced it privately, heh. Receiving gifts makes me happy, I have rarely received any gifts during my life.
Winter Solstice
  • Social talk Perhaps because I grew up in an orphanage, the food there was always so tasteless. As such, I don't like to eat hot pot, it's a little too greasy and spicy for me. Still, I really like the festival atmosphere, makes me feel all warm and happy inside.

  • Social talk Spring is the best season for everything. Work, sightseeing, napping...zzz....
  • Social talk I'm feeling motivated to start on some new projects this year...but what?
  • Social talk I've traveled to many places because of my work, but I like Portia the best.
  • Social talk It's way too hot today! I just want to sit in front of a fan. Or jump in a vat of ice...
  • Social talk Gust has to be nuts, wearing a suit in this weather...oh, don't tell him I said that...
  • Social talk I like summer rain showers, it's like a wave of cool air in the summer heat. Plus, the sound of raindrops makes me sleep very well.
  • Social talk I've never seen such a range of colors during autumn until I got here...Vega 5 hardly has any plants.
  • Social talk It's started cooling down a lot. Perfect temperature of a nap!
  • Social talk I took a nap under a tree yesterday and woke up covered in leaves. They were kind of cozy.
  • Social talk Aren't you cold? We should get some tea and warm up.
  • Social talk Moving ahead with work this time of year is so difficult. I can't even get a good nap these days.
