Petra's Home

Petra's home

Originally from Ethea, Petra has been traveling all over the known world. For someone so young, she's seen and learned more than most people do in a life time. Petra has only one goal, which is to study relics left over from the past and see if they can bring telesis to society. She eventually came to Portia to study under Merlin and be closer to the Peripheries, hoping to find computer AIs from the past.


Personal SummaryEdit

Petra was born on Day 11 of Winter in Ethea. Petra likes to research old Data Discs to discover forgotten blueprints.

Petra typically disapproves the teachings of the Church, seeing as she wants to use technology to better the world. However, she does agree to the idea of destroying dangerous technology after witnessing one of the technology blast a hole on the wall at Vega 5, though she still wants to study it first.

She can often be found in the Research Center or sitting on a bench in Central Plaza. Players can bring her mysterious Data Discs and she'll gather information from them. Within a few days, one should get the results in the mailbox.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Related CharactersEdit

Petra's closest connection in Portia is Merlin, her Friend, mentor, and fellow researcher at the Research Center. Like Merlin, Petra harbors feelings of dislike toward Lee, the head of the local church who opposes the work of the Research Center.


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


Petra typically remains in the Research Center throughout the day. Near evening time, she exits the Research Center to do other activities, such as shopping at Martha's Bakery or reading a book under the tree in Central Plaza.

Some nights she can be seen at the cemetery's entrance, walking around a stone pillar for hours.

Her home is in the center of town, between the park and Dr. Xu's Clinic, and is open from 7:00 AM to 21:00 PM.

Petra 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 Petra 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, Petra and the player can then try for children.

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

Social talk ChatEdit

Social talk
Dialogue →

Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Petra 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.

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

In the event that Petra does not specify the exact foods desired, the player should order between three and six dishes, depending on what hint Petra 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.
