Pete is the main protagonist and playable character in Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town.
StoryAs a child, Pete lived in the city with his unnamed mother and father. His parents took him to Mineral Town to show him the country. He wandered off from them and got lost. Crying, he found his way to a farm being run by an old man, who soon found a phone number on his bag which was his parents' and so he called so they could come to pick him. His parents thanked the old man for keeping their son safe and remarked how they, who lived in the city, would like to show Pete the country. The old man said he welcomed to host Pete staying at his farm for a few days as he finally got the company he wanted since he was living alone. Pete's parents were happy to hear that and stated how great it would be for him to have a farm to play on.
Pete had lots of fun playing and working on the farm. One day, he met a young girl who was around his age and they both quickly became friends with each other. When it was time for him to go home, the old man expressed the joy he had to have him around and that he never had any grandkids of his own. He asked Pete to keep in touch via writing letters when he could and gave away his address to Pete. The girl was also sad to see him leave and made Pete promise to come back one day.
Years later, Pete pays another visit to the farm to discover why he has not been receiving any more letters from his friend, but only to discover the farm full of weed and be greeted by the Mayor of the town, who informs him that his friend had passed away 6 months prior to his arrival. Since the old man had left a will before he passed away, stating that he willed the farm to Pete, the Mayor encourages Pete to continue his friend's legacy and restore the farm back to glory.
