Map of home

Sam was always a tomboy, even during her younger days growing up in Portia. She was feared by all the boys her age. Due to her father's involvement in the war with Duvos, Sam always wanted to enlist in the Civil Corps to protect her city. Rumor has it she fought Arlo to a stand still during her Civil Corps test.


Personal SummaryEdit

Sam was born on the 23rd Day of Autumn. She is an easygoing tomboy and is tough in a fight.

In the PC version, Sam has a horse named Teddy and is often seen riding him around while on patrol. The Civil Corps' horses are not named in console versions yet.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Sam wears a pink aviator hat with white fur trim, oversized brown and orange goggles, pink eye shadow, a bomber jacket to match her hat, a yellow asymmetrical shirt with orange stripes, black fingerless gloves with green trim, and green pants. She wears a pink boxing glove with three stars on it from a belt around her waist, and also carries around a white and blue satchel.

Related CharactersEdit

Sam doesn't have family in Portia, but she does have her friends and fellow soldiers at the Civil Corps: Arlo and Remington.


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

During in-game dialogue, Sam often states that Phyllis is her best friend. However, they are not part of each other's relationship network and relationship changes with Sam will not affect Phyllis, nor vice versa.


Below is her generic schedule. Certain events may alter her schedule, such as conversing with the character, missions, special events, or other distractions. All times listed are estimates, unless otherwise noted.

At the end of the day, she returns to her home, which is in the center of town, near the park. It is open from 7:00 AM to 21:00 PM.

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

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

Social Invitation InvitationEdit

Occasionally, first thing in the morning, the player may leave their house to find Sam outside, hoping to invite the player out for a date or play date.

Social play PlayEdit

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

Social date DateEdit

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

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

Sam's food preferences are:
