Pete (ピート, Pete) is the main protagonist and playable character in Harvest Moon: DS.
The story begins where the protagonist has already inherited his family farm. One day he was walking to the Goddess Spring when he saw Witch Princess complaining of how annoying the Harvest Goddess is, especially when she appears from no where and says, "Tadaaaaaa!", she follows up by claiming she'll cast a spell on her, so she'll never be able to do it again.
Suddenly the Harvest Goddess appears, along with some Harvest Sprites, and said exactly what annoys Witch Princess the most. Infuriated, Witch Princess casts a spell on her, only to realize that she accidentally used the wrong spell and has petrified the Harvest Goddess instead. When she attempts to fix her mistakes, she manages to make things worse by teleporting her away to another world. Soon after, she sends all 101 Harvest Sprites away to see if they can find her.
She quickly notices Pete saw the whole thing and tells him he has to work hard in order to get them all back and that only he can do it.
