Born to a wealthy family, Nora is a student at the prestigious University of Atara. Currently she's serving on a 2 year mission for the Church of Light in Portia. Nora is a kind soul who loves to read adventurous stories and listen to music. She strongly believes that society should forsake the use of weapons from the past.


Personal summaryEdit

Nora was born on Winter of Day 5. She became religiously involved with the Church of the Light and went to serve a two-year mission for the church in Portia with Minister Lee.

She is a kind, honest, and genuine person who truly wants what is right for the people around her and the world. She is willing to consider the gray areas in life, not just looking at things in black and white.

She lives at the Happy Apartments near the Commerce Guild.

Occasionally at night she will meet alone with Arlo at the broken well.

Related charactersEdit

Nora's closest connection in Portia is Lee, her colleague and Friend at the Church of the Light. (Interestingly, unlike Lee, she is not "alerted" by the researchers at the Research Center.)


When befriending Nora, her relationship network with other NPCs will also be affected, resulting in the player receiving favor points from those NPCs as well.

Nora is one of the potential bachelorettes that the player can romance.

Upon reaching Friend status at four full hearts, the player can confess their love to her with a Heart Knot. If the confession is successful, her relationship status changes to Girlfriend. After Nora has become the player's girlfriend, upon reaching Lover status at eight full hearts, the player can then propose to her with a Wedding Ring. If the proposal is successful, her relationship status changes to Wife. Once certain other conditions have been met, Nora and the player can then try for children.

In Steam PC version 2.0.137299 or higher Nora will propose to the player herself several days after they reach Lovers status. Nora will not propose to the player on console versions.

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


Please note: the in-game description of Nora's perks is incorrect. The discounts listed are much smaller than actual discounts given at the Church Store; she also has a Friend level Send gift through the mail perk in the description but never sends any gifts. Nora's actual perks are listed below.

Social talk ChatEdit

Social talk
Dialogue →

Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Nora once a day can increase her 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.

Nora's dialogue may change every day and every season. Nora may also comment about certain events or missions. Higher relationship levels, including romantic involvement, also change Nora's dialogue.

Social gift GiftEdit

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 Associate level with Nora for her to be assigned a desire. More desires have a chance to appear as the player's friendship with Nora 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 Nora 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 play PlayEdit

Once the player has become buddies with Nora, they can schedule a play date together.

Social date DateEdit

After the player has successfully confessed how they feel to Nora, the player can schedule a romantic date with Nora.

Social Dine DineEdit

If the player chooses to dine at The Round Table with Nora during a play date or date, it is recommended to order dishes Nora will like. If asked before ordering, Nora will sometimes tell the player exactly which dishes to order; other times, Nora will just give little hints. In the event that Nora does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Nora 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.

Nora's food preferences are:

Social Relic Trade Relic tradeEdit

Nora occasionally uses the Relic Pieces Exchange board at the Museum to trade for relic pieces. Nora likes to look at particular completed relics, so after the player has donated such relics to the Museum or displayed them in their yard, Nora 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.
