The bar’s ray of sunshine, bringing warm smiles and cold drinks to her customers.
Erica is the waitress at the Stray Sheep. A friendly sort, she often joins in the conversations of her customers. She, Vincent, Jonny, and Orlando all grew up together, and she always makes it a point to stop by their table and share the latest gossip. She’s aware of Toby’s crush on her, and she’s more than a little amused by his puppy love.
An idealistic man searching for his soulmate.
Occupation: Used Car Restorer/Dealer
Jonny is old friends with Vincent, Orlando, and Erica. He too is a regular of the Stray Sheep, and he works at his father’s used car dealership, which he hopes to inherit. He maintains an outwardly subdued demeanor, but he has an optimistic view of the value of true love and holds fast to the idea of waiting for his "one true love" before getting married.
A laid-back guy enjoying a carefree lifestyle.
Occupation: Systems Engineer
Orlando is a regular at the Stray Sheep and is a longtime friend of both Vincent, Jonny, and Erica. Having been married and divorced, he has a rather cynical view of love and marriage. He lives for himself, going with the flow, and the way he comports himself corresponds with his easygoing nature. He has some sardonic advice for Vincent on the subject of women, possibly as a result of his own experiences with the fairer sex.
A novice in the ways of love, constantly seeing life through rose-colored glasses.
Toby is a coworker of Jonny, and began coming to the Stray Sheep in order to make new friends. He may lack some maturity, but he is a kind-hearted young man looking to settle down with the first woman to capture his heart. He has a thing for older women, and is currently smitten with Erica, the waitress at the bar.
Along with Vincent, these characters will chat over booze and pizza, which character designer Shigenori Soejima also oversaw during the game’s development. Soejima posted a few pictures of in-game food on the official Catheirne blog. The game comes out in North America on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on July 26.
