Bachelors

There are 10 candidates available for marriage if you are playing as the female main character. In order to get married you have to raise the person up to at least 9 hearts, view the events that trigger as you increase the number of hearts with that person, own at least a level 2 house, and get the blue feather.

Calvin | Chase | Gill | Harvest King | Jin | Julius | Luke | Owen | Toby | Wizard

At the love confession event (at 7 hearts or so) your positive response to being told about the boy's love for you will lower affection with the other marriage candidates!

Calvin

Calvin

Calvin the archeologist can be unlocked as you are working your way to unlock the Yellow Bell. Once unlocked and the Yellow Bell has been chimed, he lives at the Oricana Inn. In the mornings you may see him outside the inn playing his guitar, and in the afternoons he goes to the 5th floor of the Garmon Upper Mine.

When you first meet Calvin he will give you an Ancient Tablet that refers to the story of the 5 bells. Rumor has it that if you sell/destroy the tablet, Calvin will not accept your marriage proposal.
