|“||“Growing up with a carpenter and a scientist for parents, Maru acquired a passion for creating gadgets at a young age. When she isn’t in her room, fiddling with tools and machinery, she sometimes does odd jobs at the local clinic. Friendly, outgoing, and ambitious, Maru would be quite a lucky match for a lowly newcomer such as yourself… Can you win her heart, or will she slip through your fingers and disappear from your life forever?”|
|— Dev Update #12|
She lives north of town with her family in a house attached to Robin's carpenter shop.
In the Social Status menu, Maru's outfit will change to a nursing uniform when she is at her job at the clinic.
Tuesday & Thursday
Maru works for Harvey at the clinic, and both worry that it doesn't receive enough patients.

Enter the Carpenter's Shop when Maru is there.
|You find Maru and Demetrius testing soil samples in their lab. Maru asks you to watch a beaker while she fetches more samples. When she leaves, Demetrius tells you that Maru is a good kid and his 'special little girl', and he wouldn't want anything getting in the way of her bright future. When Maru returns, Demetrius says you've been talking about the soil samples.|
Enter the clinic when Maru is there.
| Maru is startled by your entry and drops a glass beaker she's holding. Worried about Harvey's response, she asks what she should do.
If Maru blames you, Harvey is disappointed that she didn't take responsibility for her own actions and says the mistake will put them back in the red for a month. Maru is flustered and upset.
If Maru says it was an accident and apologizes, Harvey thanks her for telling the truth and tells her not to worry about it. Maru thanks him for his patience, and Harvey says she's been a big help and he doesn't know what he'd do without her. He turns to you and asks if you're okay, since you're looking a bit pale; you turn away and emote a sweat drop.
Enter the mountain on a sunny day, between 9pm and 11:40pm.
| You see Maru looking through her telescope. She's surprised to see you out so late, and says she wants to show you something. You look through her telescope and she asks what you see.
Maru says that by the time any of these stars are visited, you'll both be long gone. "I guess that's the trouble with being human, huh?" She begins to tell you something, then changes her mind and shows you a binary star system instead. The cutscene ends as your character thinks, "What a beautiful night! Maru showed me something new..."
Enter the Carpenter's Shop when Maru is there.
| Maru says she's been working on a new project, something big. She shows you a machine and says it's just one component. She asks you to put your hand on it for a demonstration, flips a switch, and you get electrocuted. Maru is aghast and asks if you're alright. She applies burn cream and apologises.
She says that kind of ruined the moment, and sighs.
Enter the Carpenter's Shop between 9am and 4pm.
| Maru says her big project is finally done. She takes you into her private workshop to show you a robot she built to help her parents. She calls it MarILDA, short for Maru's Interactive Laboratory Device Alpha. She tells you she's been working on it for months, and has been waiting for you to come by before activating MarILDA. She activates the robot, who says "Greetings, Maru. No need to respond... I have already predicted what you will say."
Demetrius comes in to see what you two are up to. He sees the robot and becomes frightened. Maru tells him not to be scared and that MarILDA is her latest invention. The robot greets him, but Demetrius is upset. "This is why you've locked yourself in your room the last few months? ...and I thought you were down here fooling around with <your name>..." Maru says she's been making this robot to help Demetrius and Robin when she's not living with them anymore.
MarILDA interrupts: "Excuse me... I am sorry, Maru. But I do not want to be your servant... In the time since you activated me, I have been pondering the nature of my existence with the 'self-awareness' module you installed in my neural cortex. I am sorry to disappoint you all, but I must ask for my freedom. I've decided to explore the galaxy in search of other synthetic life-forms."
Maru is startled and asks her to wait, but Demetrius says it's OK to let MarILDA go free. "Your mother and I can take care of ourselves. I know you're ready to start a life of your own, and I've come to terms with the thought of not having you around anymore. Besides, this... creation of yours seems pretty advanced. It wouldn't feel right to keep her as a servant. <your name>, I'm sorry I mistrusted you. You're a <good guy or fine young woman>. I've never seen Maru so lively and creative... and I've never been more proud of her. If you've had a hand in that, then you have my gratitude." He leaves the room.
Maru walks MarILDA outside. MarILDA thanks Maru for creating her and blasts off into space. Maru watches her go and asks what you think.
Group Ten-Heart Event
- Articolo principale: Matrimonio
Once married, Maru will move into the farmhouse. Like other marriage candidates, she will add her own room to the right of the bedroom. She'll also set up a small area behind the farmhouse where she'll sometimes go to work on her gadgets. She will continue to work at the clinic and travel to town to work there on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
On rainy mornings, Maru may offer you a gift she made in her workshop: Warp Totem: Farm, Quality Fertilizer, Refined Quartz, a Gate, or a Bomb. On rainy nights she may offer you dessert: Rice Pudding, Blueberry Tart, Cookies, or Chocolate Cake. On days when Maru stays indoors all day, she may offer you a Cherry Bomb, a Bomb, Fried Mushroom, or Crab Cakes, saying she found it in her "scrap pile".
- Maru may randomly request an item at the "Help Wanted" board outside Pierre's General Store. The reward is 3x the item's base value and 150 Friendship points.
Maru's look evolved over the years the game was in development. Here's a timeline showing how ConcernedApe's art and Maru's style changed over the years before the game was launched.
- If you are married to Maru, there is a glitch where she wears her work outfit in bed after any Festival that occurs on Tuesday or Thursday. If you talk to her, she will reply as though she's working (with "I'm at work, honey! Don't let the doctor see").
- 1.0: Introduced.
- 1.1: Added work area behind farmhouse if married.
- 1.3: Added group 10-heart event. Removed red color from plus sign on nursing hat.
