He is the town's archeologist who works at the Excavation Site with his assistant Flora. Carter will let you dig at the dig site and help him find archeology wonders.

They typically sell for a high price at Van's Shop.
Carter and Flora live together in their tent near the excavation site. Despite rumors, Carter and Flora are initially not a couple. However, you can trigger an event where he declares his love for Flora in a dramatic fashion, but when she runs to him she accidentally knocks him into the river. Although Carter is usually hard at work, he enjoys walks through town and frequents the Blue Bar during the evening. Early in the morning, Carter stretches just outside his tent before getting started with work for the day.
In the later chapters, Carter becomes a possible boss for your child. If (s)he becomes scholarly, (s)he may take over Carter's Dig Site and grow up to become a fine archaeologist.
When befriending Carter, homemade dishes and food are best. Carter will say that Flora's cooking is terrible, but he'll never confront her about it. Bringing Carter other food that he can secretly eat will make him happy.
