Scraps is an animal resident of Portia with whom the player can develop a friendship. He is a stray dog who isn't present at the start of the game because he has run away. "Missing" posters with his picture can be found hanging in the town.


Talking to Polly while close to the missing dog poster at the lower city gates will initiate the Mission: A New Friend. After completion, Scraps will wander around the town square.

Once you reach Familiar status with him (2 stars), a new quest will trigger that will enable you to adopt him. You will need Carol to craft you a Bell Collar using 1 Copper Bar and 1 Quality Leather.


A starving stray dog, they named him 'Scraps'. You can feed him anything. Low maintenance.

Personal LifeEdit

Scraps tends to wander around town, stopping at The Round Table and Martha's Bakery in particular to beg for food.

He has been known to leave town in search of food.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Scraps is a medium dog with orange fur, wide eyes, perky ears, a fluffy tail, and short legs. His belly, feet, and muzzle are white, and there is a diamond-shaped patch of white fur on his forehead. He has a tendency to keep his tongue out.

Related CharactersEdit

Scraps is not inherently related to any characters due to being a stray dog and as such, has no relationship network. However, given what some townspeople say about him, he is definitely closer to those that are inclined to give him food.
