“Elliott lives alone in a cabin on the beach. He is a writer who dreams of one day writing a magnificent novel. He is a sentimental “romantic” with a tendency to go off onto flowery, poetic tangents. When he can afford it, he enjoys a strong beverage at the Stardrop Saloon. Could a humble farmer such as yourself be the inspiration Elliott is looking for? There’s only one way to find out…”
Dev Update #12

Elliott is a villager who lives on the beach south of Pelican Town. He's one of the twelve characters available to marry.[1]


The daily routine is the same during spring and summer unless it's raining, in which case, he'll be in his cabin. He can also be found reading in the library Mon-Wed in the Autumn and Winter. (Schedule may vary in Spring of Year 1 - he seems to spend all his time in or near his cabin)

Tends to leave his cabin at Noon to stare at the beach just south of his Cabin.

Heart Events

Two Hearts

Two Hearts.png

Enter Elliott's cabin when he's there.

Elliott will greet you, and explain that he came to Pelican Town to become a writer but no one from his hometown believed he could make it. He asks what kind of novels you like. You can choose mystery, romance, or sci-fi; any choice gives you +30 friendship points. He says he'll remember your choice, then asks you to look at his rose because he thinks it may be wilting.

Elliot Two Heart Event.png

See cutscene video.

Four Hearts

Enter the Stardrop Saloon between 3pm and 10pm when Gus is there.

Gus says he'll take your order in a moment. Before he gets to you, Elliott walks into the building and says it's a pleasant surprise to find you here. He says that he's stopping in to relax after eight hours of writing. He orders two ales, one for you and one for him. He orders wine for you if your character is female.

You stop him before he can drink and propose a toast. You can choose from four different toasts:

  • "To Pelican Town!" (+25 friendship.) "Ah, to a harmonious future for the community... what a virtuous idea. Here's to Pelican Town!"
  • "To our friendship!" (+50 friendship.) "That's a great idea! Here's to us!"
  • "To my good health!" (-10 friendship.) "Well... okay."
  • "To your doom!" (-50 friendship.) "Hmph. Forget it."

You both drink and he starts dancing where he is. Then the cutscene ends, and other various decors outside the door of the Stardrop Saloon with a tipsy effect.

Six Hearts

Enter Elliot's home when he's there.

Elliot is playing the piano. After he finishes, you can say either "That was wonderful" or "How long have you been playing?" (neither affects friendship). Elliott starts talking about how hard his life is right now and wishes he could just be a farmer like you. You can say either "It's just as hard to be a farmer, you know" or "Come live on the farm, I could use the extra help" (neither affects friendship). If you tell him to join you, he's very surprised and thanks you for the offer, but says he can't because his novel is almost complete.

Eight Hearts

After receiving a letter from Elliott, visit the museum between 1pm and 7pm. (It doesn't need to be the same day.)

Elliott sends you a letter inviting you to a reading of his finished novel at the library that afternoon.

When you enter the museum, you find many villagers have gathered to listen to Elliott's first book reading. Elliott expresses his delight at your coming to listen. He reads from his novel. Depending on your choice in his first heart event, you'll get one of these stories:

  • The mystery novel Blue Tower. "It's a mystery novel set in a surreal, dystopian future. Chapter One. From the shadows emerged a man, radiating with enigmatic omniscience. 'Good Evening, Mr. Lu,' he said, the corners of his mouth quivering. Lu seemed astonished. 'How did you know my name?'" (Fade.) "Lu checked Jenu's pockets, then stood up and walked into the bedroom. He quickly found the small golden key that he was looking for and slipped it into his coat pocket."
  • The romance novel Camellia Station. "It's a romance novel about a train stewardess who falls in love with a traveling architect... Chapter One. 'Your ticket, sir?' Ticket collector Gozman extended a gloved hand towards the young commuter. 'Ah, yes. I have it right here,' he replied, reaching into his coat pocket. Mortified, he discovered that the ticket was missing." (Fade.) "...'Clara, there's something I must tell you,' he blurted as she turned to leave. Clara turned, slowly, and saw the look of desperation in Horatio's eye. At that moment Gozman burst into the compartment, red-faced."
  • The sci-fi novel The Rise And Fall Of Planet Yazzo. "It's a sci-fi epic spanning thousands of years in an exotic planetary system. Chapter One. Commander Yutkin stepped through the golden archway as the airlock snapped shut behind him. Today was his first day on Planet Yazzo, and all 14 of the alliance delegates had been summoned to the Grand Spire..." (Fade.) "...And as the 7th moon descended beneath the horizon, the planet of Yazzo would begin its sinister transformation... an event for which Commander Yutkin was completely unprepared."

Elliott thanks everyone for coming, then walks up to you and asks how you think it went. He says he's glad that you liked it, because he dedicated it to you and he based it on your favorite genre.

Ten Hearts

Ten Hearts.png

Go to the beach on a sunny day between 7am and 1pm. A letter will be sent to you but it is not needed to trigger the event.

Elliott writes you a letter saying he has an idea. You join him on the docks. Elliott had fixed the row boat that's been on the docks, and he wonders if you want to go with him on a "maiden voyage."
  • If you accept, Elliott talks about his novel and how he couldn't have done it without you. Then he's at a loss for words to explain how he feels about you. Suddenly, he kisses you! You begin trembling. You can choose to respond with "I'm happy" or "You're making me very uncomfortable. Stop." (Telling him you're uncomfortable incurs a minor friendship penalty. It's less than 1 heart and may drop you from 10 back to 9 hearts). You both head back to shore, and Elliott comments on how the valley finally looks like home.
  • If you refuse, Elliott says "I see" and the event ends.

Elliott's room.

3 days after you give Elliott the Mermaid pendant, you will get married to Elliott in the town square. Elliott wears a gray suit. After the ceremony ends, you return to your home. Elliott will be inside, and a new addition will be added to the east end of your home. Elliott's end of the house will have a mini-library, and other various decors. On New Year's Eve (28 Winter), he will give the player a bottle of wine.

Once married, Elliott assists with tasks around the farm including mending broken fences, feeding the animals, watering crops, and refilling the cat or dog water bowl. He'll also set up a small potted plant garden behind the farmhouse where he'll go to read.

Occasionally in the mornings, Elliott will provide you with a cup of coffee. On rainy evenings, he may present you with Baked Fish, Fried Calamari, Chowder, or Fish Stew, saying he spent the afternoon daydreaming about the ocean, so he decided to cook some seafood.

Elliott's look evolved over the years the game was in development. Here's a timeline showing how ConcernedApe's art and Elliott's style changed over the years before the game was launched.

In Elliot's shack on the beach, there is a framed picture of a green cube. This may be a reference to an object in Starbound called a Perfectly Generic Item, which is, itself, a reference to Homestuck.


  • 1.0: Introduced.
  • 1.1: Added reading garden area behind farmhouse if married.
