This article is about Karen, a character from Friends of Mineral Town. You may be looking for Karen in her other appearances throughout the series.

Karen is an eligible bachelorette in Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town.

Karen is the daughter of Jeff and Sasha. Together, the family operates the local supermarket. However, Karen enjoys being out on the town more than helping run the family business.

Karen is quite a romantic, and is fond of long walks on the beach at night and wine.[2] She enjoys cooking, but is unfortunately, terrible at it. Her drinking contests with Duke are infamous in town. Karen has been life long friends with Rick, and their friendship may eventually bloom into romance.[3]

Sleepover!

The girls have heard that you purchased a big bed and want to sleep in it. With all five of them in the bed, it seems a little bit cramped and uncomfortable. The girls leave after deciding that the bed isn't big enough for all of them.

Duke VS Karen

Visit the Inn between 7:30PM and 10PM after befriending Karen.[19]

Inside, you'll see Karen and Duke. They've decided to have a little drinking competition to settle a score. If Karen wins the drinking competition, Duke has to pay his outstanding bill at the Supermarket. If Duke wins, his debts will be erased. Karen asks you to judge the competition. No matter what you choose, you'll be forced to stay as Karen and Duke start drinking.

Karen ends up victorious after a long night of drinking. She leaves to go home after her victory, and it's your responsibility to take Duke home. When you bring Duke back to his house, he and Manna start arguing. Manna and Duke both thank you for bringing Duke home safely. 


Golden Service Time

If you go to Zack's house between the hours of 11AM and 4PM, you can see this event. [20]

Zack and Won greet you as you arrive. Shortly after, Karen walks in the door. Karen has decided to come and see the new shop in town. Won immediately focuses his attention on Karen, even telling you to move out of the way! Won allows Karen to pick an item out for free as a part of his "golden service time." After Karen picks something, she thanks Won and leaves.

When Zack tries to get a free item of his own, Won tells him that he'll have to pay.

Customers For Kai

The event starts when your character walks into Kai's restaurant between 5-7 PM.[21] Triggering the event will cause the day to end.

Kai greets you and says that he doesn't have any customers, as usual. Popuri suddenly calls and walks into the restaurant, excited, telling Kai that she brought customers for him. He's excited as he sees the first few customers come in. Popuri then says that there's more customers outside. Kai's happy that he has customers, but is worried that it's going to be too difficult to cook for them all. He asks the player to help and you agree. The scene shows you, Kai, and Popuri scrambling around the restaurant trying to serve everybody.

After all the customers have been served, your character, Kai, and Popuri are alone in his restaurant. Kai is tired after working so hard. He tells Popuri that he's grateful for the customers, but she brought too many! Popuri apologizes for overdoing it and Kai admits that he might be glad that he has such few customers. He thanks your character and you go home.

Rick's Worries

This event can only be seen after Karen and Rick get married. Visit the Poultry Farm between 4:30PM and 7PM in any season that's not summer. [22]

At the Poultry Farm, you'll see Rick and Karen talking. Rick is feeling anxious about the store. Because Popuri has gotten married and moved away, she's not here anymore to help with the farm. Rick doesn't know when his father is going to return either! Karen tries to comfort her husband and assures him that she can help with the farm in Popuri's place.

Rick feels slightly relieved after hearing this.
