The 4th of the Hulu brothers, Siwa arrived at Portia when the brothers came with their grandmother. Siwa had the strange ability to withstand enormous heat, people always joked he was born under the summer sun. Due to his ability to stay cool, Gale asked him to watch over Portia's power station, which burned power stones.


Personal summaryEdit

Siwa is afraid of cold, so he lives alone in the desert, farming on his own. When the weather is warm, he will go to Portia and join his brothers.

Physical appearanceEdit

Siwa, like all of his brothers, is a rather rotund man. He has short, dark hair under a green bucket hat with light green circles and a blue headband. He wears small pince-nez style shades with blue-tinted lenses and has a thin mustache and goatee. He wears his green sweater vest emblazoned with the trademark calabash gourd and Hulu name over the top of a blue short-sleeved shirt with white stripes on the sleeve. His cyan shorts are patterned with random colourful splotches, and he has black shoes on over his white socks.

Related charactersEdit

Siwa has lots of family members in Portia, including his grandmother, Yeye; his older brothers, Dawa, Erwa, and Sanwa; and his younger brothers, Wuwa, Liuwa, and Qiwa.


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


At the end of the day, he returns home, which is the house near South Block and the Eufaula Desert. His home is open from 7:00 AM to 22:00 PM.

Social play PlayEdit

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

Social date DateEdit

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

Social Dine DineEdit

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

Siwa's food preferences are:

Social interact InteractEdit

Social Relic Trade Relic tradeEdit

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