Carmen (イオン, Ion) is a bachelorette in Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.



Carmen is a very energetic and sometimes bossy girl. She lives with her older brother Carlos at their fishing resort. Just like her brother, Carmen loves fishing.

Carmen admits that she's very loud and should tone her voice down a little.

Mostly by appearance and her tomboyish looks, Carmen is an indeed both very energetic and strict to-the-art of fishing. Carmen always seems to be blushing when people know that she always let the words slips her mouth. Like her brother, Carlos, she's very easily to be excited about things, especially fishing. She always gives out about the fish in the season and pointers about fishing. She is always seen with Carlos by the Diamond General Store.



By looking at her field model on the party status screen, Carmen actually has shoulder length hair that is tied into a ponytail. However, whenever Micah is talking to Carmen, her sprites have her facing forwards so Carmen's ponytail can never be seen.


Carmen was born to unknown parents and lived in Sharance since she was a child. She was raised by her older brother, Carlos, since she was a baby. She has many fond memories of her childhood with him, such as visiting the ocean, going boating in the lake, and him teaching her to enjoy eating fried fish.

Carmen loves her older brother, Carlos, very much, and the two can get quite carried away when it comes to either of them. However, she can get embarrassed by how in love with himself he can be, and she can't stand how he never cleans up his room. Nonetheless, the siblings are known around town for their strong bond.
