The town of Forget-Me-Not Valley is filled with a diverse amount of people. In total there are 48 folk that live or visit the valley. The 14 marriage candidates will not be listed here, or Daa-Chan, the stuffed bear (he’s only in the Japanese version, supposedly), but the other 34 people will be explored.

Each villager has a value of points, similar to Love Points (LP), called Friendship Points (FP). These all start at 0 and each item given to a person either raises the FP or drops it. Items that the villager likes will raise it, while items they don’t like will drop it.

Below you'll see descriptions of the 34 other villagers of the valley, including their likes, dislikes, and birthdays. They're listed in alphabetical order, and an asterisk indicates that this is a rival for a girl's affection.
