The mayor of Bluebell Town, Rutger manages the day-to-day operations of the town. He lives in the upstairs area of the Bluebell Town Hall along with his wife, Rose. He is generally a cheerful fellow until he has to interact with Ina at the cooking festival. He becomes much happier when his town wins!

Birthday: Spring 16

Family: Rose (wife)

Favorite Wild Animals: None

Disliked Wild Animals: None

Friendship Tips: Rutger is fond of insects and most large-size fish. The only one of the "large" fish that he won't go crazy for is the Large Killifish; any other fish with the word "large" in it will earn you 300 FP. Insects are always plentiful in the mountain area.

Two easy cooking recipes he likes are Bread and Cooked Rice. You can simply by Rice and Flour from the triplets' shops, and then combine each in a pot to get Cooked Rice and Bread. Rice costs 180 G each and Flour is 150 G each.
