Vaughn (ヴァルツ Varutsu, lit. Valts) is a character in Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands. He is one of the eligible bachelors to court and marry.
Vaughn is an animal trader who visits Verdure Island every Monday and Tuesday. He only talks to Mirabelle when he visits, as the two both work with animals. He sticks strictly to business, and is an anti social individual.
You're able to meet Vaughn on your first Monday or Tuesday by walking into the animal shop. Upon meeting him, Vaughn will come across as a cold and quiet individual. If you befriend him, however, he will warm up. Vaughn has no family and prefers to work alone, and not much else is known about him.
Because you can only see him two days a week, Vaughn's heart points may take longer to raise than other bachelors'. If you don't marry Vaughn, he may marry Sabrina. If you do marry Vaughn, he will live with you on Verdure Island, and will only leave on Monday and Tuesday morning and return at noon.
