Pia (ペルシャ, Perusha, Persia[1]) is a bachelorette in Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.



Pia is very whimsical and innocent, to say the least. She takes figures of speech literally. Sakuya tends to see her as gullible and childish. Pia loves fish and hates squid for eating the former. She claims squid are "the root of all evil," so as an act of vengeance, Pia has made it her life's mission to eat all squid and squid dishes. Equally important to her, though, are the baths—she obsesses over cleaning them and always does everything she can think of to make them better. In general, whether it is out of love or hate, Pia is always deeply devoted.


Pia has bright pink eyes and a light complexion. Locks of her candy pink hair are actually fins, being indicative of her mermaid blood.

Her true identity is no secret. Her legs transform into a fish tail whenever she comes into contact with water. This can be seen whenever she is outside in the rain or snow.


Pia was born in the sea, but moved to land and met Sakuya and Shino, who offered her work and a place to stay at the bath house. She decided to stop living with fish to live with Sakuya and her mother as a surrogate sister and daughter. Whenever she dreams of the sea now, she remembers the loneliness that she had felt back then.

Sakuya is Pia's best friend and adoptive sister, with whom she'll often hang out during festivals. Pia and Sakuya form a slapstick duo where Sakuya is the straight man who hits Pia, the comic, for spouting nonsense. Shino is Pia's adoptive mother. Even though Pia finds it difficult to clean the bathhouse because she is constantly coming in contact with water (fins aren't good transportation on land), she perseveres due to her love for the both of them.

Pia: Huh, is this for me? Hmm, but I can’t use garbage in the bath, so I don’t really want it…
Micah: Oh, sorry…
Pia: If it were a squid instead, I could’ve eaten it OR used it in the bath.
Micah: What?!

Pia is a naïve mermaid who lives with Sakuya and Shino at Miyako Inn.




  • Pia's hatred of squid comes from a story she heard titled "The Tuna and the Squid". In the story, a tuna was swimming around "minding its own business" when suddenly a squid attacked it. This led to Pia wanting to destroy the entire population of squid.
  • Pia mentions the difficulty of mobility when she is transformed into a mermaid. However, her movement speed on the field is as fast as her walking speed.
  • According to Shino, Pia gets fidgety in the summer.
  • After marriage, she calls Shino "Mom".
  • Pia shares a birthday with Danny from Rune Factory: Frontier and Volkanon from Rune Factory 4.
  • Pia makes numerous pop culture references in most of her dialogue.
    • At the end of one of her requests, Pia sings "It's the end of the day as I know it!" This is a reference to REM's song It's the End of the World.
    • During her Bath Census request, the answers 'Slimy' and 'Crunchy' of her 'feeling of water' question is a reference to The Lion King's Timon and Pumba, and their contrasting tastes of 'slimy' and 'crunchy' bugs.
    • During her Bath Census request, answering 'Hot' to her temperature of water question will result in her exclaiming "Smoooookin! Somebody stop you!". This is a reference to The Mask.
