Mikhail (ミハイル, Mihairu) is a secret bachelor in Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns.

Mikhail is a wandering violinist, and is passionate about music. He's a shy and private person, and it may take some time to get to know him. Mikhail seems to really enjoy nature and spends a lot of his time on the mountain and outdoors.

He will not appear in your game until the 7th of Fall during the first year. Upon his arrival, the mayor will bring him to your house in the morning to introduce you to him and explain that he is here for the upcoming Musical Festival. He will live at Town Hall of whatever town the player is currently living in. Mikhail will leave every Summer to some other place with cooler weather, but he will always return the following Fall season.

If you move in the middle of the season while Mikhail is in town, he will stay in the village that you started out in. However, he will move to the city hall of the village that you moved into the following Fall when he returns.

Marriage Requirements

Before you can propose marriage, you need to see Mikhail's 4 flower events, have him at a full bloom flower level, be in year 2 or later, and own the big bed in your house.

Since Mikhail doesn't have any family living in either town, you don't have anyone else you need to befriend before you can propose.

Also note that Mikhail does NOT have a reverse proposal.

Flower Events

Purple Flower Event

  • Time: Sunday or Wednesday, 4pm to 6pm.
  • Weather: Sunny or Snowy.
  • Date location: the spring.
  • Friendships needed: Mikhail at 2 white flowers or higher.

Mikhail comments on how calm the atmosphere surrounding the pond is. There aren't any bugs or birds to be heard. This would be a good place to play the violin.

Option 1 - "would you please play?" (+3000FP)

How could he refuse a request from someone as cute as you? Mikhail will take out his violin and play a tune. After it is over, Mikhail is happy. The vibrations of the music in the air feel nice. He hopes you enjoyed his music. (The melody that he plays is the Wedding theme from Back To Nature)

Option 2 - "you don't have to play" (-3000FP)

Mikhail assumes you don't like the sound of his playing. He hopes that some day you'll understand his music and leaves.

Blue Flower Event

  • Time: Sunday or Wednesday, 10am to 1pm.
  • Weather: Sunny or Snowy.
  • Date location: by the river
  • Friendships needed: Mikhail at 3 white flowers or higher.

The violinist says he hasn't had much sleep lately. He hasn't been able to complete his latest composition to the best of his satisfaction, which has caused him to go to bed late every night.

Option 1 - "could I help in some way?" (+3000FP)

Mikhail thanks you and is glad to know that you would do something like that. He's looking for a specific sound and has tried different ones, but hasn't found the one he likes. You think for a moment and get an idea. You lead him to the bell at the church, which Mikhail says he's never heard before. How do you make the sound? You walk up to the bell and give it a good kick! Mikhail wasn't expecting you to do something like that, but then the bell chimes out. The harmony floats through the air, inspiring Mikhail. He thinks he will be able to finish writing his music now. You've been very helpful! Mikhail heads back to complete his music composition.

Option 2 - "maybe you lack talent..?" (-3000FP)

Mikhail doesn't understand why you would say something like that. The sound of your voice pierces his ears and causes him discomfort. Mikhail excuses himself and leaves.

Green Flower Event

  • Time: Sunday or Wednesday, 1pm to 4pm.
  • Weather: Sunny, Snowy or Rainy.
  • Date location: Town Hall.
  • Friendships needed: Mikhail at 4 white flowers or higher.

Mikhail was playing a song for you when he suddenly stopped. One of the strings on his violin broke! He explains that his violin has 4 strings that make sound when he uses his fingers and bow. If a string is cut, his bow will make a bad sound when it's used. He's going to need to fix it, but he's been so busy, he had forgotten it needed to be repaired! He tells you not to worry though, as he has had to fix it before. Violins are musical instruments that have long lives. It's written that a violin can last 100 years or more if it is well taken care of. His own violin was given to him by his teacher. It has been used for over 90 years.

Option 1: "it's a hand-me-down?" (-3000FP)

Mikhail scolds you for your lack of manners. He lost his parents when he was a child and his teacher was the one who raised him. The violin is an important keepsake and you are making fun of his most precious memories. Mikhail asks you to leave.

Option 2: "it's an heirloom!" (+3000FP)

He agrees; it is a very important violin. He lost his parents when he was a child and his teacher was the one who raised him. He taught Mikhail the importance of music and how to play the violin. He loved the music his teacher played and Mikhail has never met someone who could play like his teacher did. This violin is an important keepsake. Mikhail realizes it is a little strange, since he hasn't talked about himself in a long time. Perhaps he is just responding to your gentle voice. Mikhail offers to walk you back to your house before it gets late.

(You will return to your farmhouse after the event is finished)

(The melody that he plays at the beginning is the Fall theme from Harvest Moon DS)

Yellow Flower Event

  • Time: Wednesday or Saturday, 4pm to 5pm.
  • Weather: Sunny or Snowy.
  • Date location: The Spring.
  • Friendships needed: Mikhail at 5 white flowers or higher.

Mikhail is back to commenting about the tranquil atmosphere surrounding the pond. He wonders if there is something sacred living here. The other day, a girl at the Town Hall told him a legend about the church's bell. In the past, the bell was used to celebrate wedding ceremonies, but now it is old and isn't used anymore. It is said that even if a couple has their wedding at the top of the mountain, the bell can still be heard! The sound of the bell is the blessing from the Harvest Goddess, bringing good fortune and happiness to the couple. Mikhail thinks the girl at the Town Hall must have a wild imagination. He asks if you like the story.

Option 1: "it's wonderful!" (+3000FP)

Well, you're also a girl. He wonders if there's another person you would want to have a wedding together with. He's glad to hear that there isn't. Mikhail begins to talk about your potential companion but then abruptly stops and blushes; this isn't the right time for it yet. He tells you not to worry about it, and offers to walk you back to your house. (You will return to your farmhouse after the event is finished)

Option 2: fairytails mean nothing (-3000FP)

It probably isn't possible, but you don't need to be so realistic. It isn't bad to believe in such things. You'll end up overlooking various sensational things. Music and emotions are the same way; not everything has to be seen. Haven't you ever believed in a happy dream, even if it is small? Mikhail then leaves.
