Mysterious Man
Where did he come from? Where is he going? What does he want? People always ask, but sometimes things are better left unexplained.

The Mysterious Man is an unidentified human that always wears a mask to hide his identity. During the last two days of every season, he returns to Portia to sell his goods to the locals and enjoy the town. His most valuable selection is the Wedding Ring. The rest of the year, he travels the Alliance of Free Cities, selling his wares to the people he meets.

The Mysterious Man owns a shop in Portia, but the building is never open for business since he is always out traveling. The shop remains closed even while he visits the city, though he does sleep in his home within.

Personal life[]

The Mysterious Man is a man of adventure, seeking rare items to sell to the locals of Portia once he returns to town on a monthly basis. He returns on Saturday of Day 27 and departs before the start of Monday of Day 1.

The Mysterious Man's store building is located near the Hazardous Ruins gate, except due to his absence, his store is never open for business. Even despite returning to Portia, he never opens his business as he usually wanders town during the day.

The Mysterious Man's identity is unknown, as he always wear a mask to hide his identity.

Physical appearance[]

The Mysterious Man, despite hiding his identity behind a red and white panda-styled mask, can be seen to be a fair-skinned, thin man with yellow eyes and white hair covered by a brown and yellow baseball cap with strange writing on the front. He is wearing a long brown trenchcoat over a white shirt, purple pants and red shoes with yellow laces. He also has a small, blue wristwatch. He carries a very large ramshackle backpack made (apparently) of scavenged materials, which is holding a number of packages and mysterious items. From the way he pauses periodically to adjust the pack and breathe, it seems that this is a very heavy pack.

Related characters[]

The Mysterious Man does not seem to have any close personal ties to anyone in particular, and his dealings with the player are purely for business.

Chat is a basic social interaction. As a stranger, chatting with Mysterious Man does not increase his relationship points as Mysterious Man cannot be befriended; subsequent chatting, on the same day, only results in the same conversation.
