An animal trader by vocation, Vaughn spends most of his time traveling to other locations. He is only on Verdure Island on Mondays and Tuesdays, where you'll find him at Mirabelle's animal shop. Vaughn does not have any family and prefers to keep to himself.
If you talk to Vaughn he will appear cold and snobbish. As you warm up to him by giving gifts, the cowboy will become more talkative.
Birthday: Spring 3
Unlocks: No special requirements are needed. Vaughn will be on the island from the beginning of the game, and you will meet him on your first Monday or Tuesday.

Lending a Hand
Purple Heart Event
» Mirabelle's house
» Monday or Tuesday: 6:00 am to 11:00 am
» Vaughn at a purple heart color or above
Mirabelle and Vaughn are talking inside the shop. Vaughn has finished up his work for the week but before he can leave, Mirabelle asks him for a favor. She says something is bothering the animals and asks Vaughn to go take a look for her. Vaughn doesn't really want to, but agrees to do it anyway.
As you walk into the shop, Mirabelle asks if you would help Vaughn out. The cowboy rejects the idea and says he works alone, but Mirabelle insists because she knows Vaughn is very busy.
» I'll help out. = Positive answer!
Vaughn is annoyed that you're tagging along, reminds you not to get in his way, and the two of you leave the shop. When you're finished, you return to the shop together. Vaughn recognizes that your assistance helped to speed up finishing the chore, although he doesn't thank you for it.
» I'm busy, so not now. = Negative answer.
Vaughn can handle the chore by himself anyway, and leaves to go check on the animals.

» You have seen "Lending a Hand"
Inside the cafe, there is a conflict between Denny and Vaughn! Denny is incredibly angry at the cowboy because he had insulted Denny's fishing livelyhood. Denny argues that fishing is in his blood and he doesn't care if he makes any money but it is like talking to a wall; it's clear to Denny that Vaughn doesn't get it.
After Denny walks off, Vaughn explains that he wasn't making fun of the fisherman. He just finds it odd that he works so hard at a job that doesn't pay well. He doesn't know what to say in return.
» Say you're sorry! = Positive answer!
You're right. Vaughn walks over to Denny and apologizes. He didn't mean to insult Denny's work. Instead, he thought it was amazing how much Denny likes his job and how hard he works at it. Denny can't stay mad at Vaughn now that he's put it that way, and apologizes in return for loosing his cool. The two guys decide to "pig out" together at the cafe.
» He has a point... = Negative answer.
Vaughn argues that he didn't do anything wrong. It's Denny's fault for not letting Vaughn finish.
Green Heart Event
» Walk from Verdune Island to Sprout Island
» Sunny day: 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
» Vaughn at a green heart color or higher
» You have seen "Unprofitable Worker"
While walking down the path you'll bump into Vaughn. He has finished his work for the day and is out enjoying a walk. Lanna will then walk up to the two of you and call out for "Vaughnie". Vaughn is not happy about his Lanna-given pet name, and tells her to not call him that.
But, Vaughnie is so dreamy! Lanna asks if you think so too.
» Yep! So dreamy! = Negative answer.
Vaughn insists that he is not dreamy. He's so annoyed that he tells you never to talk to him again.
» Don't talk to him like that. = Positive answer!
Lanna still thinks he's dreamy, but she can take a hint and storms off. After she leaves, Vaughn thanks you. He isn't really a people-person so he can't just yell at her. He really doesn't like the nickname she calls him.
Out with Vaughn

» Sure! = Positive answer!
The two of you end up at the beach. Vaughn asks how your ranch is going, as you always seem busy. He thinks you're pretty cool because you handle things all by yourself. He respects you for it, just as much as you respect him. It is the first time that anyone has told Vaughn that he is respected. He blushes and thanks you.
» No thanks. = Negative answer.
