A "big-sister" like young lady who works at the town's flower shop. She runs the shop with her grandmother. Although she is usually composed, she can have quite a scary temper when angered.

With a tired tone, as if suffering from a headache.

Age: 70s

A short, grumpy, elderly woman who runs the flower shop alongside her granddaughter, Emilia. Fiona is a devout believer in the supernatural/paranormal and is the only person in the valley who truly thinks that there are spirits amongst them.
