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.

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.

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

First meeting
  • Nora ED 001
    Oh, hi there! Are you new here? I'm Nora. I'm a missionary at the Church of the Light. It's nice to meet you!
  • Nora ED 002
    Minister Lee did not look happy today, he probably had another argument with the people at the Research Center. The conflict between the Church and the Research Center has been going on for a long time - I wish they'd give it a break! At the end of the day, we all want the best for humanity.
  • Nora ED 003
    People want the guidance of the Church when it comes to technologies from the corrupted world. After all, these technologies are what lead to the destruction of human society. We need to be extra careful about what we dig up now.

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:

Play date eat Dining
Prompt happy
Prompt sad
Menu icon appetizer
Menu icon main course
Main Course
Menu icon meat
Menu icon vegetable
Menu icon dessert
Menu icon drink
Exceptions: Nora feels neutral about Classic Spaghetti with Meat Sauce because it is both Spaghetti and Salty Food.

Social interact InteractEdit

As the player develops their relationship with Nora, special interactions are unlocked, including Hug and Kiss.

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.
