Dr. Xu is Portia's one and only doctor. The clinic he runs is located next to the Civil Corps building, high up at the top of the town. Phyllis works as his assistant.


Dr. Xu grew up in Walnut Groove, where he met a traveling doctor from Seesai, igniting his passion for Seesaian medicine. Dr. Xu followed this master doctor back to Seesai and studied there for many years before returning to the Free Cities. Dr. Xu's goal is to use what he learned in that far away land and help the people of Portia live longer and healthier lives.


Xu was born in Walnut Groove on Winter of Day 14. There, he met a traveling doctor from Seesai, inspiring him to become a doctor. He followed the doctor back to Seesai and studied medicine before returning to the Free Cities. He also became fluent in Seesaian. After his studies, Xu had been traveling as a doctor until he came upon Portia. Due to Portia's lack of a long-term doctor, Xu decided to stay, where he became popular and planned to retire in Portia.

Xu does not like tea, such as Red Tea, as he cannot sleep after drinking it.

Physical appearanceEdit

Xu has scruffy-textured black hair and bushy eyebrows. He is 172cm tall, weighs 58kg, and is thin built.

Xu wears a white coat typically used in medical professions and wraps his stethoscope around his neck. He has a tan undershirt and brown pants. His accessories include blue-colored glasses and blue-colored tennis shoes.

On the 13th day of Spring in the first year, Dr. Xu will be waiting outside the Builder's home when they wake up.

  • Xu "Hi, so you're the new Builder in town? I heard you're from Barnorock. It's a lot more humid here in Portia. Have you got used to the humidity here?
    • Yep!
    • Not yet.
  • Choosing "Yep!" option:
    • Xu "That's alright. We have a recipe here to help cope with the humidity."
    • Xu "Just use some Milk, Golden Salmon, and Salt to make the Creamy Salmon Stew.
  • Choosing "Not yet." option:
    • Xu "Health is the most important thing in life, right? Don't wait until you're sick to do something about it. A Seesai proverb says "prevention is the best cure!" Don't you agree?"
    • Xu "Good! But still, eat some healthy foods, good for the body, good for the mind. Try using Milk, Golden Salmon, and Salt to make the Creamy Salmon Stew. It's a local stew, I personally find it very healthy!"
  • Thank you, doctor.
  • But how do I make it?

Choosing "Thank you, doctor." option ends dialog.

  • Choosing "But how do I make it?" option:
    • Xu "Oh! Perhaps you don't have any cooking equipment. Talk with the ladies at the Research Center, they should be able to help you.

At HeartHeartHeart, talking to Xu will start this event:

  • Xu "Recently everyone is healthy. The work at the clinic is quite relaxed."
  • Xu "Isn't the workshop builder quite busy? You've been help us out for quite some time. Is there anything I can help you too? Want to chitchat about what's going with your work? I'm all ears!"
    • Logging is hard
    • Mining is hard
    • It's okay, I'm fine.
  • No matter what the builder says:
    • Xu "Right? I understand."

Choosing "It's okay, I'm fine." will end the event.

    • Xu "Oh that, these aren't a lot, please take them.
    • Wood +5
      • Thanks.

  • Xu "You are out finally, Let me see if you are hurt."
    • Why are you even here?
  • Xu "Civil Corps says you visit the Hazardous Ruins often. There are tough monsters. You are in big trouble if you are injured."
    • Can I get a treatment? I'm injured,
    • I'm fine. Don't worry.
  • Choosing "Can I get a treatment? I'm injured," option:

  • Choosing "I'm fine. Don't worry." option:
    • Xu "I'd feel more assured if I take a good look at you."
  • Xu "Looks nothing serious. I will treat you in a bit."


  • Xu "Okay, you are good to go."
    • Thank you Dr. Xu. Are you hurt too?
    • I feel completely fine, thank you!
  • Choosing "Thank you Dr. Xu. Are you hurt too?" option:
    • Xu "This is embarrassing. I wanted to sneak in when the gate was open. And a strange bird jumped on me and I couldn't react in time. And the rest is history."
    • Xu "The good thing is Sam showed up in time and drove away the bird, and drove me back from the gate too."
    • Xu "Don't worry, I can take care of my injury. But if something happens to you, I'd be really worried!"

After attaining 450 Friendship (4.5 Heart) with Dr. Xu, if the builder is single, entering the clinic will start the event: Dr. Xu talking to Phyllis:

  • Xu "Is this plan even doable?"
  • Phyllis "Doctor, be active about this. If you really like the person, go for it!"
  • Xu "You are right, I haven't even tried and I should not think about backing out. Thank you for your advice Phyllis!
  • Phyllis "Oh... that. Doctor..."
  • Xu "What do we do next? Definitely can't ask..."
  • Phyllis "Greetings PlayerName! feeling uncomfortable?"
  • Xu "Ah... PlayerName! Oh, when did you come?"
    • I just arrived.
    • What are you talking about?
  • Choosing either option:
  • Xu "Oh, not... nothing!"
  • Xu "I'm going to get some herbs. You Phyllis!... Do as I talked earlier, you know it!"

This ends dialog.

Talking to Xu again during the same day, or the next day will prompt the following response:

  • Xu "Errr about the details... Let's not talk about this? You will know soon."

Talking to Phyllis continues the event:

  • Phyllis "You'd think Dr. Xu is great at what he does, but he's definitely not good at this!"
  • Phyllis "Oh? Want to know what Dr. Xu is up to? I'm keeping my mouth shut alright."

This ends dialog.

  • Phyllis "Hmmm.. I'm starting to crave Spicy sauce noodles recently. What do I do?"
    • I will make you one.
    • What do I do?
  • Choosing "I will make you one." option:
    • Phyllis "So cool, thanks a lot."

  • Choosing "What do I do?" option:
