Some players may not be interested in getting close with non-marriageable candidates in Pelican Town. However, if you want to know more about the uncanny rumor of Caroline’s assumed relationship with the Wizard, you might want to check this guide. 

Here we’ll talk about her schedule, best gifts, and other details to help you unlock her heart events!

Who is Caroline?

A dialogue with Caroline in her Sunroom in Stardew Valley.
Her sunroom is surely her comfort space.

She’s a villager in Pelican Town who also lives at Pierre’s General Store. She doesn’t have a lot of plans in her time in the village, but there are juicy tattle-tales about her that may interest you. Moreover, you can’t marry her despite establishing a good relationship, but you may occasionally receive gifts from her.

Family and Relationships

Caroline is Pierre’s spouse and Abigail’s mother. Aside from her filial relationships, she’s also known to be close with Jodi since she can tell her anything and takes aerobics classes with her. 

Additionally, there are theories about her cheating on Pierre with the Wizard. This speculation came to view after Caroline’s comment about Abigail’s hair color and the Wizard’s 10-Heart Event wherein he reveals that he suspects he has a daughter in town.

While on Caroline’s 8-Friendship Hearts Event, she’ll tell you that she used to take a stroll around the Wizard’s Tower. What’s unusual about this was she asked you to keep it a secret from Pierre since he gets jealous easily.

She also mentions that she gave birth to her daughter a year after they moved in. In Pierre’s eight hearts dialogue, he hints at his doubts about being Abigail’s father. However, aside from these details, there aren’t other pieces of evidence to prove the speculation.
