Lulukoko Background Characters (Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns)
These characters are commonly referred to as "faceless characters", as they exist but have no character portraits when spoken to. The "faceless" have distinct models which are shared between each of them. However, each of them have unique dialogue and even stories which connect them to other "faceless" and main characters.
The list below is all of Lulukoko's background characters.
Huemac is a boatman who transports people to and from different islands for a living. His lines are references to the Amazon jungle and places within it.

|Boats are fascinating, don't you think?|
|Someday you should visit my hometown!|
|*yawn* Maybe I should rest for a bit.|
|I spend so much of my time on a boat that it kind of seems weird to be on land.|
|I'm just taking a little break. I should probably take it easy for a while.|
|I'm a boatman. I help transport people between islands and the mainland. It's an important job.|
|The best way to get to my hometown is by boat. It's a big place, full of lush plants. I think you'd like it.|
|My father spent a long time building a man-made lake next to our house. It's pretty amazing when you think about it!|
|It rains a lot in my hometown. When it's really pouring, the boats can't go out, and I can't do my job.|
Andes visits Lulukoko each week for shopping. She LOVES potatoes. Potatoes are incredibly important, you know? Her lines (and name) are a reference to the Andes mountains and surrounding areas.
In the Japanese version, Andes is spelled アンデス.
|Potato, potato, potato! I love potatoes!|
|What's your favorite potato dish?|
|I could really go for potato salad right now.|
|Potatoes are the greatest! You can boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew...! Though when I ate one raw, I got sick...|
This line is an added Lord of the Rings reference.
|Why, oh, why, does this shop not offer potatoes? Every time I come here, I preach the good word of the potato and ask them to cook some for me, but to no avail...|
|The food here is delicious! But...why don't they serve anything made with potatoes? With cooking skills like this, they could make the greatest potato dish ever...! I have no choice! I'm gonna try suggesting that they make potato dishes one more time!|
|My dream is to eat every kind of potato dish the world has to offer! When I think about how many potato dishes there must be that I've still never tasted... Oops. I'm drooling.|
|Huh? What would I do if there were no more potatoes...? What kind of crazy talk is that? Even if civilization was wiped from the world, potatoes will last forever!|
|Did you know that Machu and I are neighbors? Well, the mountains we live on are next to each other, anyway. We're still more than a day apart!|
Angie is from a family of treasure hunters. Like her relatives before her, she came to Lulukoko seeking adventure and is particularly excited about the ruins in town. Her character concept is a reference to Lara Croft from the 2001 Tomb Raider movie, portrayed by Angelina Jolie.

|Today's the day I'll find hidden treasure!|

|That's right, I'm a treasure hunter. Raiding tombs and finding lost treasures is my specialty.|
|Exploring ruins takes a lot of stamina. That's why training and exercise are extremely important.|
|I come from a long line of treasure hunters, but my father might be the greatest of all. He's my hero, really.|
|We're not nobles or anything, but my family owns quite a large mansion. It has a garden, a pool, and even butlers.|
Mazatl is a man with more money than he needs. He recently received a revelation from the Spirits, telling him to construct a floating island. His lines and name refer to Mazatlán, Mexico.

In the Japanese version, Mazatl is referred to as Azteca (アステカ).
|Could an island ever float in the air? Hmmm...|
|A floating island... Got any ideas?|
|If I got it floating, how would I steer...?|
|I can buy almost anything, but I still can't think of a way to create a man-made floating island.|
|Sure, I'm rich, but I'd never buy up all the supplies and hoard them for myself. Who would do such a thing?|
|When I'm done here, I'll be off to buy some cacao. It's delicious.|
|In my dreams, I received a message. "Build an island that floats," a voice said. But...how do you build an island??|
|There's currently no way to make an island float. As a test, I tried floating in the ocean myself, but...I'm like a rock in the water. Instead of floating in the ocean, I nearly floated into the heavens, ha ha!|
|I'm constantly thinking about this task given to me by the spirits, but I'm getting nowhere. Maybe it's simply a lesson to teach me that there are things that even money can't buy.|

|I always look forward to seeing the twins. ♥|

|Fruit is sweet and delicious and it makes people happy. You should buy some!|

|Is that a SNAAAAKE?! Phew! It's just a whip.|
|I'm a professor of archaeology. I came to this town because I heard it has some mysterious ruins.|

|I...hate...snakes. When I was a kid, I found this treasure, but then... Just thinking about it makes my skin crawl.|
|The ruins here were build thousands of years ago. Originally they were used as some sort of temple, apparently.|
|You're asking why a professor like me is going out of his way to investigate ruins first hand? Professors don't just hang around and do research in libraries all day. You won't find any hidden secrets there. If you want to be a good archaeologist, you've gotta get out of the library!|
Jolyne is a marine biologist studying the marine ecosystem of Lulukoko. Her name and lines are most likely references to Jolyne Cujoh and the Stone Ocean arc of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure which debuted in 1999.

|Yep, I'm a beekeeper by trade.|
|Isn't honey great? It's my specialty!|
|Bees aren't scary once you get to know 'em!|
|When it rains, bees can't fly around to do their work. That means it'll take longer for them to make their honey.|
|Have you done much beekeeping? The kind of honey you get is different depending on what kind of flower you use.|
Lini is a kind lady who gives the player advice about feeding wild animals and keeping the bag space open. Her name is Hawaiian for "softest ray of light".
In the Japanese version, Lini is spelled リニ.

|I can't do much shopping since I don't have a lot of money, but...Going to the store gives me a chance to talk with people. Making new friends is better than being able to buy stuff!|
|I live at the top of a nearby mountain, but there aren't any other people there. It can get a bit lonely. That's one of the reasons I come to town. A grown man like me getting lonely... It's embarrassing to admit.|
|I have my own farm up on the mountain, and I also like observing shadows. It's kind of like my hobby. It might sound weird, but I like seeing how the shadows' positions change at different times and season.|
|The view from the mountain I live on is beautiful. You should stop by if you ever get a chance! Although...my house is about 2,000 meters up...It's a bit of a hike...|
|When I was little, I got some really bad burns. Ever since then, I've been afraid of fire...But I can't just be frightened for the rest of my life...! So, recently, I've been doing these special training exercises to get used to fire. Now I'd say I'm just scared instead of completely terrified, so that's an improvement, right?|

|My friends at home always ask me to buy things for them when I come here. I'm going to have quite a lot to haul back!|
|My village is on the other side of the mountains. Every once in a while I visit this town so I can stock up on supplies.|
|Whew... I have to hike over a mountain to get here and then again to go back. It's not an easy journey.|

|I'm an astronomer. Right now I'm studying the celestial calendar to learn the positions of constellations.|
|Numerical sequences are fascinating, wouldn't you agree? The day just flies by when I'm thinking about them!|
|I love sequences and patterns so much that I could just eat them up. In fact, I use a calendar as a placemat.|
|Is there someplace in this town where I can buy corn? I'd eat it for practically every meal if I could...|
|Here, take my business card... Huh? You like the drawings? Actually, they're characters called hieroglyphs. Hieroglyphs are pictographic symbols that are used by some cultures in place of words. They're quite fascinating!|
|Let's say you hate 1 but love 2. 1 x 1 equals 1, which means you still hate it. But 1 x 2 equals 2, so you'd love it. Then 2 x 2 equals 4, which is double what you love. Thus, if you put two things you love together, your love will multiply. Since I love hieroglyphs, I used them to write a love letter. But the woman I sent it to turned me down entirely. Sadly, if you love a person whose feelings for you are zero, you'll learn the harsh reality that 2 x 0 is still 0. As a lover of numbers and sequences, it was an unequivocal failure.|

|Hi. You must like art, right?|
|What should I paint? Maybe a landscape...?|
|Do you have any info about cheap properties?|
|Could I draw a picture of your farm someday?|
|When you look at a town from up above, it looks more like art than a community, don't you think? One day I'd like to draw a picture like that: a massive illustration that covers the world!|
|I make it a point to use only the finest ingredients when I cook. I mean, you can draw using a cheap pen and paper, but......drawing with quality materials is the best way to bring out your abilities, right? I think cooking is the same. Still, whether it's cooking or drawing, at the end of the day, you need talent to create a masterpiece.|
|Cooking is art! Of course, it has to be delicious too...But what really matters is how you present your food on the canvas called a plate.|
|In order to create my massive picture, I'll need some land to draw it on. That settles it! I'm going to buy some land!|
|Land is really expensive... The money I earn from my art isn't enough, so I'm thinking of taking a part-time job...|
|At the rate I'm going, I'll probably die of old age before I have enough money to buy any land...I wonder if it'd be easier to just travel until I find some land nobody knows about and create my masterpiece there...|

|Oh, sorry. I tend to stare at the shape of people's heads. It's, um, a sculptor thing. No offense intended!|
|Yep, I'm a sculptor. The owner of this shop often introduces me to new clients.|
|I'd heard some new work had come in, but it wasn't at all related to sculpting. I was asked to look for a cat! I mean, I practically worship cats, but come on... I want to sculpt! Now I feel like I've been used...|
|I sculpt all kinds of things, but mostly I sculpt heads and busts. Right now I'm working on a head bigger than a house!|
|A client asked me to make a sculpture of his head. But when he saw it, he said the eyes didn't look determined enough! Now I'm making some adjustments to the eyes. But, honestly, his eyes are really droopy...|
|When I showed my client the sculpture's new eyes, he complained again! "I'm way more handsome than this!" he said. I'd had enough. I took my mallet and smashed the sculpture's face in! I was about to apologize, but he said..."I'm sorry. You're right. It does look like me." Weird, huh? But as long as he's happy with it, I guess I shouldn't worry.|
