“Leah lives alone in a small cabin just outside of town. She loves to spend time outside, foraging for a wild meal or simply enjoying the gifts of the season. She’s a talented artist with a large portfolio of work… yet she’s too nervous to display it to the public. Maybe you can give her a little confidence boost?”
Dev Update #12

Leah is a villager who lives in a small cottage outside Pelican Town. She's one of the twelve characters available to marry.

She spends each morning sculpting inside her cottage. Her home opens at 10:00 AM, but players must first acquire two hearts in friendship before being allowed inside. The first time the player enters her cottage an event will be triggered, but only if she is at home at the time.

Schedule

Each day Leah wakes up at 10:00 AM and begins the day sculpting in her cottage. Unless players have achieved at least two friendship hearts with her they will be unable to enter her home. At 12, after sculpting, she often goes out to draw beside the pond in the woods, to Pierre's General Store, or sometimes to the beach in the summer. On rainy days in spring she goes to the The Stardrop Saloon at 5:30 PM.

 Spring
There seems to be variability to her schedule in the late spring. Some days she doesn't leave her house until 4pm.

Heart Events

Two Hearts

Two Hearts.png

Enter Leah's Cottage when she's there.

Details 
You see her working on a sculpture. She discusses sculpting with you, and says "Once you get past the outer layers, the true nature starts to show..."
  • "It's the same with people." (No effect on friendship.) she agrees and says Oh! yeah, that's absolutely right!
  • "I actually prefer the look of raw, unadultered wood." (No effect on friendship.) She says that there's nothing wrong with that and that she thinks there's lots of beauty to be found in raw untouched nature. She goes on to say as a human, she is interested in how we shape and interpret the world around us, she explains this as she is interested in 'art'.
  • "(creepy) May I have a kiss?" (-100 friendship.) She calls you a pig, punches you and kicks you out. The scene ends.

She continues, "Although, I have to admit... It's not easy to pay the bills as an artist."

  • "Why don't you have an art show in town?" (No effect on friendship.) She muses that it could help make Pelican Town a true art destination, but says she'd be crushed if nobody liked her sculptures. She says she'll think about it, and thanks you for stopping by.
  • "Why don't you sell your art on the internet?" (No effect on friendship.) She says it's expensive.

Four Hearts

Four Hearts.png

Enter Leah's Cottage when she's there.

Details 
You see her arguing with her ex-partner on the phone, who is asking her to come back to the city she left. After the call, she tells you her story and asks if it was selfish to move out of the city to be an artist.
  • "No, it had to be done." (No effect on friendship.) Leah responds, "You're right... I just wouldn't have been happy back there."
  • "No, and your ex sounds like an idiot." (No effect on friendship.) Leah responds, "That's a bit harsh... But yeah, we had different priorities."
  • "No, but you would've been better off staying in the city." (-20 friendship.)
  • "Yeah, a little." (-20 friendship.)
  • "Yeah, but it's natural to care about yourself first." (-20 friendship.)

Depending on your response in this conversation and the two-heart event, she'll either thank you for listening or briefly get angry. She tells you that she's been thinking about the art show or is saving for a computer, depending on your choice in the previous event.

Six Hearts I

Six Hearts.png

Leah is at your farmhouse door on any day but rainy between 6 AM and 11:30 AM.

Details 
Leah says she has a gift for you, and you receive the sculpture she's been working on. It's called How I Feel About <your name>.

Six Hearts II

Six Hearts.png

Enter Cindersap Forest when Leah is there, in any season except winter.

Details 
Leah is trying to reach a fruit from the large tree above the forest lake. She can't reach it, so you lift her onto your shoulders. She thanks you and says that if her art ever fails, you'll always be there to catch her.

Eight Hearts

Art Show

Eight Hearts.png

If you suggested an art show in her two-heart event, Leah is at your farmhouse door between 6 AM and 8 AM (except in winter) to invite you to her art show. Enter Pelican Town between 3 PM and 5 PM (not necessarily the same day).

Details 
You arrive to find many others already present. Leah is happy to see you and nervously starts the art show. She thanks everyone for coming. Leah says she came to Pelican Town to draw inspiration from the beautiful surroundings and confesses that it really feels like home now. She presents her sculptures.

"I haven't named this one, yet. She started out as an exercise in human anatomy, but I ended up seeing her through to completion. Her expression is intentionally unclear... is she embarrassed, amused, pained? I'll leave that for you to decide." (pause) "This one's called 'Post-Dimensional Nullspace'. It represents the boundary of human imagination. The shape and color came to me vividly when I was in a 'trance state'." (pause) "I've been calling this one 'Egg Heads'. I wanted to create an animatronic humanoid statue to toy with the viewer's ability to properly attribute personhood to a physical entity." (pause) "And the last one is called 'Wood Sculpture 3'. It's a celebration of my favorite sculpting material... wood."

Finally, she thanks her special friend (you), who gave her the idea for the art show and the courage to go through with it.

The villagers all praise Leah and her artwork:

  • Lewis: "I'm proud of you, Leah! Events like this really breathe life into our little town!"
  • Gus: "Great stuff!"
  • Demetrius: "I love your art, Leah! 'Post-Dimensional Nullspace' is my favorite."
  • Robin: "Great use of wood!"
  • Penny: "Thanks for doing this!"

Leah thanks everyone, Lewis starts the bidding on the art pieces, and as the scene fades, her ex, Kel, can be seen to the side. Afterward, Leah says she's exhausted but that the show was a success.

Art Website

Eight Hearts.png

If you suggested an art website in her two-heart event, enter Leah's Cottage when she's there.

Details 
Leah proudly tells you she bought a laptop and set up an online art shop like you suggested. Her computer plays a coin sound, and she excitedly says that means someone just bought something. She pauses and says there's a "Mr K" who keeps buying all her sculptures. She figures it must be "some rich guy" who loves her art. She thanks you for the idea and says it's been really successful so far, and is confident she'll have enough money to work on her art full-time now. She goes back to work on her store, tweaking the CSS sheets.

Ten Hearts

Ten Hearts.png

Enter Cindersap Forest between 11 AM and 4 PM, in any season except winter.

Details 
Leah says she knew you'd be passing through the forest, and surprises you with a picnic. She thanks you for helping her get one step closer to being a real artist, and you share a kiss.

Leah's ex-partner Kel comes out of the bushes. (Kel will be male or female depending on your player's gender.) Leah is annoyed and asks what they're doing here.

  • If you suggested the art website, Kel says they found her online art store and says they're the "Mr K" who kept buying her sculptures. Leah is disappointed, because she thought it was a rich guy who truly loved her art. Kel says she was "half right", implying they don't care about her art. They ask her to come back to the city. Leah refuses, saying Kel was never interested in her art until she became successful.
  • If you suggested the art show, Kel says they came all the way from Zuzu City to see her sculptures and bring her back to the city. They claims to want their relationship to be the way it was before. Leah refuses, saying Kel was never interested in her art until she became successful.

Either way, an argument ensues. You can choose to punch Kel or reason with them. If you don't punch Kel, Leah does instead. If you do punch Kel, Leah says "That was pretty violent, (Name)."

Leah takes you to find a more secluded spot and admits the picnic didn't quite pan out like she'd wanted it to.

Marriage

Leah's room.

To become engaged, you must give the desired character a Mermaid's Pendant.

The wedding will take place 3 days after you propose and be handled by Leah. The marriage ceremony takes place in the center of Pelican Town with every member of the town attending the event. Once the ceremony is complete, she will move into your farm, and your house will have an addition with a small art studio. She'll also have an area behind the house for sculpture carving where she'll sometimes go.

Her old house will still be accessible during her old hours but she will not go there any longer.

Behavior

Leah exhibits 5 notable behaviors once married.

1: Taking care of tasks for you
Watering most or all crops on your farm (only in spring, summer, and fall)
Repairing broken fences
Feeding all animals
Watering your dog's/cat's bowl
2: Giving you a random plant, saying she grew it behind the house, or a salad or a coffee. If your inventory is full, you will not receive the item.
3: Giving a stardrop as a symbol of love
Get your spouse to 13/12 hearts and speak to them in your home. She will comment about life on the farm and how they are enjoying it, then give you the Stardrop Fruit as thanks.
4: Going on nature walks
Every Monday Leah will take walks around the Valley. She will leave the farm and can be found walking through the forest south of the farm near the lake, after which she will wander to town before returning to the farm.
5: Staying in bed all day
There is a chance that Leah will not get out of bed in the morning, instead opting to tell you either "Nnnghh... what is it? Make your own breakfast.", "Nghh... what is it? I'm trying to sleep." or "*sigh* I just want to sleep..."
