Karen is a visitor from Mineral Town who stays at Carol's Inn during Fall and Winter. Her sister-in-law, Popuri, also accompanies her while she's on vacation. Karen is married to Rick, but he doesn't come with her to the islands; it's a girls-only trip. She and Popuri are never separate from each other.

Karen and Popuri's schedule takes them all over the archipelago. On sunny days she starts out inside the inn, then grabs some food at the Cafe at 11am. At 3 o'clock she moves to Mystic Islands, and then returns to Sprout Island after 7pm.

On rainy days, they'll stay at the Inn until 1pm, go outside on Verdure Island until 5pm, and then go to Chen's shop until 9pm. If the day is rainy and a Friday (when Chen's shop is closed), the girls go to the Diner from 1pm to 5pm, and then around Sprout Island until 9pm.

  • If you have 7 hearts with Karen, she will give you a present if you have a birthday in Fall or Winter and you speak with her. There are three different presents available, depending on the year. She will give you either Wine (Year 1), Risotto (Year 2) or Pizza (Year 3). These gifts will continue in a set rotation every three years.[1]
    • If she gives you Pizza, you can gift it back to her for a major boost of affection (or save it for her birthday in your refrigerator for even more heart points).
