Gray is Saibara’s grandson and apprentice. He works at the Forge with his grandpa supervising his training.
His birthday is on Winter 6th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Winter 23rd instead.
Gray likes a lot of food and ore/minerals, so it’s good to be friends with him if you spend a lot of time in the mines. And our guide below offers a blueprint to easily win his friendship.
You can find Gray every day at Saibara’s forge, except for Thursdays when the shop is closed. Other than that, he has a pretty consistent schedule regardless of the weather or season.
|Monday||Inn (2nd floor), Forge, Rose Plaza|
|Thursday||Inn (2nd floor), Summit, Forge|
|The rest of the week||Inn (2nd floor), Forge, Rose Plaza, Library|
Gray’s favorite gift is Roasted Corn, which requires an oven for you to cook.
If you don’t have the oven yet, some other easy gift alternatives are copper, silver, and gold that you get from mining.
