This article is about Nathan in Sunshine Islands. You may be looking for Nathan in Island of Happiness or for Nathan in The Tale of Two Towns.

Nathan is a character in Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands.

Nathan is a priest who has travelled to preach the teachings of the Harvest Goddess. Nathan and the nun Alisa will move onto the Mystical Islands after they have been raised, and will live in the church. 

The Harvest Goddess cured him of a mysterious illness in the past. Since then, he has dedicated his life to her as thanks. He adopted Alisa after her parents died and has brought her with him wherever he goes. He is always willing to listen to anybody who is having troubles but he doesn't have a weekly church service.

He never leaves the island on a regular day, so he can either be found inside of the church or near the goddess pond. He will, however, attend certain festivals.

  • If you have 7 hearts with Nathan, he will give you a present if you speak to him on your birthday. There are three different presents available, depending on the year. He will give you either a Pancake (Year 1), Steamed Bread (Year 2) or French Toast (Year 3). These gifts will continue in a set rotation every three years.[1]
    • If he gives you French Toast, you can gift it back to him for a major boost of affection (or save it for his birthday in your refrigerator for even more heart points).
