Karen (カーリー Kali) is a character in Harvest Moon DS and Harvest Moon DS: Cute. She is one of the eligible bachelorettes to court in DS.

Karen is unlocked after connecting DS and Cute to Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town and Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town, respectively, via GBA connection.

Karen works at the General Store, and will sell you items over the phone when you call using the telephone. Once you connect to (More) Friends of Mineral Town, Karen will also come and visit Forget-Me-Not Valley from Mineral Town.

Karen visits the valley every Tuesday. She visits her cousin Celia during the day at Vesta's Farm, and likes to go drinking at the Blue Bar during the evening. Tuesdays will be the only day where you will be able to give Karen gifts, so she is harder to impress than the local bachelorettes.

Marrying any Mineral Town bachelorette in DS will cause the game to end. After the credit finished rolling, players can resume from their last save spot.

Heart Events

Black Heart Event

  • At Vesta's farm shop.
  • 4:30 pm to 5:00 pm, Tuesday.
  • Karen is at a black heart color or higher.

Walk into the farm shop and you'll notice that Celia isn't inside. Vesta explains that she isn't feeling very well. She thinks it might make her feel better if you go visit with her.

Upstairs in the farm house you'll find Karen and Celia together. Tell them you're here for a visit. Celia sighs as she mentions how Karen came to visit and now Vesta has sent you up to check on her. She was only feeling ill for a brief moment! Celia thanks you for worrying about her but she's fine now. Karen even feels that it was kind of you to come to visit. Celia begins coughing, so she isn't as well as she wants you to believe! Karen tells you to go outside since Celia needs to rest.

Back outside, Karen thanks you for coming to visit. She smiles and tells you she has to go back to Celia.

Purple Heart Event

  • At Blue Bar.
  • 6:20 pm to 10:00 pm, Tuesday.
  • Karen has a purple heart color or higher.
  • You have seen the black heart event.

In the bar you'll find Karen and Griffin. Karen blushes because you've arrived. Griffin invites you up to the bar to treat you to a drink and Karen encourages you. Take her offer for a drink.

... and a 2nd drink...

... and a 3rd drink...

... and you keep going until you pass out. When you come to, Griffin asks if you're all right. Karen feels bad for making you drink so much and she truly apologizes. You tell her it's fine so she feels better.

Blue Heart Event

  • At Inner Inn, 2nd floor, back hallway.
  • 6:00 am to 9:00 am, Tuesday.
  • Karen has a blue heart color or higher.
  • You have seen the black and purple heart events.

Go up the stairs at the Inn and walk into the hall where the rooms for the Mineral Town visitors stay. Karen will be outside the girls' room and asks if you would like to go with her for an innocent walk. Tell her "Well, let's go" and the two of you will walk over to check out the windmills by the valley entrance. Karen likes how there are different things in the valley compared to what exists in Mineral Town, but there are things that are the same too. Karen then walks you back to your own farm.

Yellow Heart Event

  • At Blue Bar.
  • 6:20 pm to 10:00 pm, Tuesday.
  • » Karen has a yellow heart color or higher.
  • You have seen the black, purple, and blue heart events.

Upon entering the bar, Karen invites you over. Remembering what happened the last time you decline her request. She tells you she won't be drinking today, and even asks Griffin to confirm she won't be drinking. Well, she's not drinking yet anyway. You walk up to the counter but still keep your distance from her. Griffin thinks he understands how you feel, but Karen tells him to go away.

Now that Griffin is out of the way Karen walks closer to you. It turns out she only wanted to ask you a question. Karen is looking for someone to give her advice on what her future should be. Since the two of you are friends she wants to know if you would talk to her about this.

Karen explains that her dad runs the supermarket but his health is declining. Karen isn't sure if she should take over the business or not. If you tell that Karen should "get life experience", she will think you're right. She isn't ready to take over the store. Karen will take your advice into consideration.
