Harvest Goddess (Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility)
|This page is about Harvest Goddess from Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility. For other uses, see Harvest Goddess (disambiguation).|
|Japanese Name:||女神さま (Megami-sama)|
The Harvest Goddess is a kind and merciful guardian, ever watching over the island and its residents. She loves everyone and everything equally, and possesses a big heart that forgives humanity's errors. She's invested in the hero's well-being and genuinely wishes the best for them.
The hero's first meeting with the Goddess is through a prophetic dream, where she fails to communicate her plea for help to the new rancher who arrives on the island. As the hero progresses, she is able to contact them through more visions and half-relayed messages. The Goddess has been trapped in the sky realms for a long time since the previous Mother Tree died. The death of the Mother Tree caused the Harvest Sprites to lose their power and become unable to maintain the rainbow bridges that allowed the Harvest Goddess to come down to the island. Because of this, not only has the island been slowly wasting away, but the Goddess's life force has also been diminishing. The Goddess asks the hero to restore the rainbows, Mother Tree, and life to the island. In doing so, not only do you save the island, but the Goddess herself.
Even when the main story ends, the Goddess still has another role for those who opt to have children in Tree of Tranquility. The Goddess serves as a guide for Your Child during the New Game+ story arc, should you choose to pursue that path. Initially, she asks for your help with saving another dying island. However, since you have already saved Waffle Island, it is decided that Your Child should go in your stead. She will watch over Your Child as they accept the Journey Rucksack and become the savior of the next dying island.
After you restore the Mother Tree, the Harvest Goddess will always remain at the Goddess Pond. She has no varying schedule.
Dialogue and Scripts
The Goddess can only be spoken to after you have completed all the rainbows and restored the Mother Tree. She is not counted as a friend in the friend list, nor can you acquire friend points with her. Thus, her dialogue is based on the time of day, weather, season, and your overall progression. She cannot be given gifts and has no corresponding gift dialogue.
