Shea (シバ, Shiva) is a bachelor in Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands.

Abandoned by his parents, Shea was brought up by his foster father Wada. Both men are members of a clan of hunters, and live in the wild. Shea survives off of the land, and strongly believes in hunting only for what you need.

Shea has been isolated from humans for most of his life, will speak in broken sentences, and has very little knowledge about the English language. He is a responsible young man who has had a good upbringing despite his primitive nature.

He and Wada will not appear in game until Mushroom Island has been raised. He lives on Mushroom Island in a tent. Shea's ultimate goal is to become a great hunter and warrior so that he can protect those who are important to him. If you plan on making Shea your husband, keep in mind that his heart level is invisible. Unlike regular bachelors, you cannot see Shea's heart level when talking to him. He also has no rival.

Purple Heart Event

Is This Sickness?

  • Shea's tent on Mushroom Island

  • Sunny day: 6:00 am to 8:00 am, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, and 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm
  • Rainy day: 6:00 am to 11:00 am, and 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm
  • Shea has at least 2 hearts or more (10,000+ FP)

Visit Shea's tent and he wants you to come inside because he has a question he wants to ask. It is the first time that Shea has lived on his own without Wada. He is trying to be a strong warrior, but he feels strange and sad. Shea doesn't understand how he is feeling and asks if you think he is sick.

You must be lonely. (Positive)

Shea doesn't know what "lonely" is so you explain it to him. He is relieved to know that he isn't physically sick, but he still feels sad. He wants you to come visit him so that he can be happy.

Maybe you are sick... (Negative)

Perhaps you're right. Shea realizes that you're too close to him and so you might get sick as well! He demands that you get away from him before you're affected too.

Way of the Warrior

  • Shea's tent on Mushroom Island

  • Rainy day: 6:00 am to 11:00 am, and 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm
  • Shea has at least 4 hearts or more (20,000+ FP)
  • You have seen Purple Heart Event

The following events must be triggered before all 15 islands are available. Once all of the islands are up, Wada will move to Mushroom Island while he waits for you to raise his Sunny Island. Since he spends most of his time inside of Shea's tent, you won't be able to trigger the blue heart event.

Inside of Shea's tent, he shows you a spear that Wada gave him. Shea doesn't have any problems hunting when using this spear, and reminds you that he is fully aware that your farm animals are not for him to hunt. Wada has taught him well and he respects his foster father.

I'm not so sure... (Negative)

Why don't you trust him? Shea is disappointed.

I believe you. (Positive)

Shea is happy that you believe him. If anything bad ever happens to you, Shea promises to be there for you because it is his goal to protect people who believe him. It is the way of the warrior after all.

Wada has come to visit Shea and has brought the little warrior a lot of food. Shea thanks Wada for the food he brought, but Wada just wants to make sure that Shea is happy. Shea insists that he's fine because you have come to see him, and that makes him happy.

Wada thanks you for making his son happy, which confuses Shea. Since Wada is the strongest warrior, he doesn't thank people very often. It must mean that you are very important.

You're important to me, Shea! (Positive)

Is he really someone important to you? Shea is glad, because both you and Wada are important to him and he is important to both of you. Shea does a little dance to celebrate how happy he is.

Of course Wada likes me more! (Negative)

Shea didn't like your comment. He doesn't understand why you would say that, and now he's sad.

Shea has come over. It's a beautiful day and wants to know if you want to go out and do something.

I'd love to! (Positive)

The two of you head outside, where Shea mentions he doesn't know what a ranch is like. He didn't expect it to be so big, but it looks like fun. Shea asks what the windmill is and is happy watching it. Unfortunately, watching the spinning blades of the windmill seems to get Shea dizzy.

After some rest, Shea thank you for taking care of him. He's never been dizzy before and thinks it was kind of fun. Shea wants to come visit again some day.

The event ends back at your farm house at 6:00 pm.

I'm really busy today... (Negative)

The two of you head to Chen's shop. Shea is amazed by all of the stuff for sale! After Shea looks around for awhile, Chen asks if there's anything he can find for him. The wild man explains that he wants something good for hunting. Chen leaves for a moment and returns with a hunting tool for Shea to look at. Shea is pleased with what Chen has brought him, and turns to leave out of the shop. Before he gets out the door, Chen stops Shea and asks for payment for the item!

Shea doesn't understand what Chen means, so the merchant explains that he has to pay money before he can take the item. Shea didn't know that fact and quickly gives the item back to Chen, before running back home.

Shea and Wada are battling it out like warriors do, but Shea appears to be loosing. Wada calls him "weak". At this point you interrupt the fight in fear of Shea's safety, which annoys both of the men.

Shea explains they were just practicing. Wada is the strongest warrior so Shea wants to practice so he too can become the strongest. To prove that Wada is the strongest, Shea challenges you to hit Wada from behind. You sneak up behind Wada and successfully smack him on the head with your hammer.

You take Wada back to the tent, where Wada regains consciousness. Shea is sad to see his mentor lose to you, and wonders if it was on purpose. Wada claims that he lost because he was hungry. Shea is glad to hear that Wada lost to hunger and not to you.
