Calvin (カルバン, Calvin) is one of the available bachelors that you can marry in Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility.

Calvin is a laidback archaeologist who is the second arrival after you complete Daren's rainbow recipe. He naturally spends the majority of his time in the Mine. When you first meet Calvin on the 10th floor of the mine, he has fallen down a pitfall and sprained his ankle. With a little help, however, Calvin is soon back on his feet and isn't afraid to return to the mine later. His house is located in the Maple Lake District.

To a certain extent he is friendly and upbeat, but also tends to exhibit a rather distant persona.

In some versions of Tree of Tranquility, there is a glitch that can trigger for Calvin. If you get him up high enough to trigger the request event, and go down to the 10th floor of the Ganache Mine where you meet him, he's supposed to ask you for an apple, but instead the game will glitch, and just freeze. If you bought your copy after April 2009, then you'll probably have a fixed copy. You can Tell the difference by the color of the game disk. If the color of the image is green it's an older copy, but if the image on it is in full color it's the fixed version.
