  In the village, there are presently 5 girls available for you. But,
who should you choose? This section will discuss the personality,
looks, and skills of each of the girls.

  It all depends on your tastes. After you marry one of the girls,
instead of helping on the farm, they stay at home and do, well..,
ummm, errrr.., NOTHING!

  I know, not that great, it's one of those things I want Natsume and
Victor Interactive to change in their future Harvest Moon games. But,
they still did a great job.

  Now that you know what great things the girls do after marriage
(cough, cough), you can just pick one of them, and live happily ever
after, well, not really.

  Without any further adieu, here are the Girls!

=====================================================================
4.1  M A R Y
=====================================================================

  Mary is a librarian. And for those of you who prefer looks over
brains, than skip Mary and check the others. But, for those of you
who like girls with personality, you can't lose with Mary!

  Being Kind and Generous Mary likes to help others and does it in a
polite manner. She has black hair, wears glasses, has a white shirt,
with a blue dress over it. She is almost always found in the library,
assisting those who come and read her father's books. Her birthday is
on the 20th of Winter, or on the 25th of Winter if your birthday is on
the 20th.

Occupation: Librarian
Personality: Appreciative, Kind, Generous
Bad Traits: None
Looks: Below-Average
Skills: Thinking

=====================================================================

  Elli is a mid-wife.(No, not a "middle wife! A Mid-Wife is someone
who delivers babies.) She works at the clinic and is there everyday,
except Wednesdays. Elli is very kind, although her parents have
passed away and she has to take care of her Grandmother, and little
brother, Stu.

  Surprisingly Elli is the only girl with short hair. Her hair is
brown, she wears a bow tie near her neck, and wears a blue dress. She
is very helpful to people, always asking what's wrong and aiding
people in the clinic. Her birthday is on the 16th of Spring, or on the
20th of Spring, if your Birthday is on the 16th.

Occupation: Mid-Wife
Personality: Kind, Helpful, Nice
Bad Traits: None that I could think of
Looks: Average
Skills: Medicine

  Ann is a tomboy. Her mother passed away, and she now helps her
father at the Inn. Although her father wants her to marry, she is
opposed, and wants to stay single. Don't worry though, she'll marry
you if she loves you.

  Ann has orange hair that's tied in a bow tie, and she wears blue
overalls. She is very nice and cheerful, helping people when they are
blue. Ann loves animals, and especially cooking. She almost always
wins the cooking festival, if not her father will win. Ann also
enjoys nature, every morning, weather permitting, she spends her time
standing at the goddess spring enjoying the cool mountain air.

Occupation: Helps at the Inn
Personality: Cheerful, Enthusiastic, and Hardworking
Bad Traits: Gets angry sometimes for small things
Looks: Average
Skills: Cooking, and Cleaning

=====================================================================

=====================================================================

  Karen is very mature when compared to the other girls. She doesn't
like anything her parents like and usually gets into arguments with
them. She is also afraid that her father's shop is not well equipped.
She likes to hang out at the beach with Rick, Kai, and Popuri during
the summer.

  Karen has brown hair with blonde highlights at the bangs. She wears
a vest, with shorts, and a belt. Although saying "Who are You, I'm
afraid I don't Know You" when you meet her, she gets nicer as you
change her heart rating (See Section 7. The Love Meter) saying things
like "If you ever need someone to talk to, you can talk to me". Karen
is an alcoholic, she loves wine and drinks it regularly.

Occupation: None
Personality: Mature, Easy Going, Care Free
Bad Traits: Gets Extremely Angry if given something she does not like
Looks: High Above Average

4.5  P O P U R I

  Popuri, one of my favorites! Although she is a crybaby sometimes,
and although she is practically mean to you when she doesn't know
you, Popuri is great once you get to know her. Her father is
presently not in the village, he has gone to find the desert flower,
to cure his wife, Popuri's mother, Lilia. Popuri has one brother
named Rick who helps out on their Poultry farm.

  Popuri has pink hair just like her mother, wears a red dress, and
has a headband. She becomes nicer and nicer the more you get to know
her, and loves almost everything excluding ores and such. Popuri is
also the easiest girl to marry, because every time you talk to her,
her heart rating goes up (See Section 7. The Love Meter) and all the
things she loves are picked from Mother Nature.

Occupation: None
Personality: Lovable, Carefree, Immature
Bad Traits: Cries A lot
Looks: Above Average
Skills: Umm.. Crying!

  Now that you know where all the girls are located, in order to raise
their hearts (See Section 7. The Love Meter) You have to give them
gifts! Not just any gifts, but things they Love! Here is a pretty
complete list of Likes & Dislikes of each girl. Some of these things
are picked from Mother Nature, yet others require a Kitchen and
utensils to make. Give the Girl you are trying to Marry, mostly gifts
from the "love" section but things from the "like" section are okay
too. Don't forget their birthdays! Try to give them jewelry if you can
on their special day for best effects, but, if you didn't save some
ores from winter, give the girl something she loves.

  Only give a girl gifts she dislikes/hates only if you are
experimenting with the game or are trying to see their reactions to
various objects. Just remember, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!!!
