An introvert by heart, Gabrielle prefers the company of cats than of humans. She lives on the outskirts of Calisson, near the bridge that leads to Lebkuchen. Gabrielle is a vet by trade and has knowledge of what herbs and other goodies can heal a sick animal. She charges a lot of money for her services to ensure that she isn't asked by animal owners for assistance, as Gabrielle feels that she causes more harm than good.
0.5 Hearts: Talk to Gabrielle by her house. You want to know more about her? Gabrielle isn't interested in telling you more about herself. You then ask her about the plant she's growing by her house. Gabrielle tells you it is called Hemlock. It's not something people should eat, but the butterfly larva love it.
Best choice: How kind of you.
1.5 Hearts: Walk into Braden's ranch area to see Elijah watching a cow. The berries the cow is eating look tasty! You eat them too, but then realize that you don't feel so good. Braden and Elijah take you to Gabrielle (because the cow got sick too). When you wake up, Gabrielle explains you and the cow both ate a poisonous Yew Berry. She also scolds you for caring more about the cow than of yourself; in your poisoned-berry delirium, you had asked her to take care of the cow first. Gabrielle tells you to rest for now, and reminds you that she can't take care of you every time you get yourself hurt.
Best choice: But I care about animals!
2.5 Hearts: Walk to the forest between the Calisson farm area and the chicken weathervane. Gabrielle pretends that nothing is going on, but then a bird flies away from behind her.

She was gifted her skills from her predecessor, so she wants to use them as much as possible to help animals. But she felt that things went wrong more often than right. The little bird then returns and brings its friend, which convinces here that maybe she has what it takes to help animals after all.
3.5 Hearts: Gabrielle will be standing outside of Elijah's house at night. She is out taking a stroll. You know, you're easy to talk to! Gabrielle realizes that she was running away from her fear of what happens when she cares for animals based on her earlier experiences. Since meeting you, she has cared for more injured animals and has come to realize that it brings her joy. Gabrielle wants to travel to Pastilla to finish the animal care that she started, but if she gets depressed again, she asks that you help to heal her heart again.

Malika is worried that the planted flowers will disappear, but just maybe the flowers will make the forest beautiful again.

3.5 Hearts: Walk close to Malika by the Harvest Sprite tree to see her with a watering can. She tells you that she was invited back to Pastilla, but would prefer to watch the changes to the town from a distance. Plus, Malika would rather work on reviving the forest. She requests that you move closer to where she lives, as any flower is bound to bloom when you're nearby! Besides, Malika assumes you'd like to live near her too. Maybe that means she wants to be close friends with you? You don't have to answer right away.
