Abandoned in the woods as a baby, Oaks was found and raised by Papa Bear. As Oaks reached boyhood, Papa Bear settled down near Portia to give his adopted son a chance to go to school and interact with other humans. Oaks is very naive, but kind and hopeful. He can also talk with some animals.


Personal summaryEdit

Oaks was born on Day 8 of Summer. When he was a baby, Oaks was abandoned in the woods by his biological parents until Papa Bear Abu found him. Papa Bear raised Oaks and settled near Portia to allow Oaks to interact with other humans.

Oaks can speak human language and also has the ability to talk to animals, such as Papa Bear.

Physical appearanceEdit

Oaks is a young man with pale skin, brown eyes and medium-length straight red hair. He wears a heavily-patched bearskin cloak with the head forming a hood, and the front legs acting as sleeves for his arms, and red straps meeting at his collar to hold it on. He is bare-chested beneath the cloak, but he has dark blue and red striped pantaloons covering his legs to below the knee. Over the pantaloons, he wears a fur sash, covered by two belts: One turquoise with a silver buckle, the other purple and red striped with gold loops and several things hanging from it, including a winged white key, a couple of decorative keychains and a yellow pouch. His lower legs and feet are covered with simple wraps over sandals. He has a gold necklace with a single decorated animal fang or claw strung on it.

Related charactersEdit

Oaks's closest connection in Portia is his foster father, Abu, who adopted him when he was young. They can often be found together in the fields just outside the city.

Social talk ChatEdit

Social talk
Dialogue →

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

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

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 Oaks for him to be assigned a desire. More desires have a chance to appear as the player's friendship with Oaks 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 Oaks 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 Dine DineEdit

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

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