Mars and Carol Home

Polly's home

The middle child of Mars and Carol, Polly loves to read and study. She likes to go visit the Research Center and play board games with Isaac. Polly feels that her sisters need to study more to have a chance at a better life in the future, but she mostly keeps to herself. She wants to get a scholarship from the prestigious University of Atara.

Polly is a child living in Portia. She is the middle child of Mars and Carol, with Molly being her elder sister and Dolly being her little sister. She is the more independent of the three sisters, preferring to spend time away from the other two girls. She is a student at the Portia School.


Personal LifeEdit

Polly was born on Day 25 of Spring and is the middle child of Carol and Mars. She attends the local school in Portia with the rest of the children in the town. Unlike the other girls in her family, Polly is extremely smart and wishes to obtain a scholarship to the University of Atara when she grows older. Polly feels that her sisters need to take their studies more seriously, but she tends to keep to herself.

Polly enjoys visiting the Research Center, the Commerce Guild, and playing Cross Five with Isaac.

Out of all the cities and countries she has learned in school, Polly wants to visit Seesai the most.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Polly is a young girl with pale skin and long reddish-brown hair pulled up into a braid and tied with a red ribbon with yellow polka-dots. She wears an orange dress with yellow polka dots on top of a white blouse with pale orange stripes, orange leggings, white socks with red trim and red shoes.

Related CharactersEdit

Polly lives with Mars, her father; Carol, her mother; and Molly and Dolly, her older sisters. She is Best Friends with Isaac, a fellow intellectual and her Cross Five partner.

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