Doug (ダグ, Dagu) is an eligible bachelor in Rune Factory 4. A dwarf who showed up in town one day, he now lives with Blossom and helps her run the general store. He's in charge of the shop on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Although he often complains about how boring work is, or even falls asleep on the job, Doug loves being able to help Blossom, not that he'd admit it. He has an image to protect and if people find out that he's got a sweet side when it comes to his mother figure then it would ruin everything. But despite going to great lengths to hide and deny it, Doug cares deeply for Blossom and constantly worries about her health. Doug's fretting, and the rash actions he takes to help Blossom from time to time, in turn make her worry about him.

Although Doug was sullen when he first came to Selphia, he's warmed up to the citizens by the time Lest/Frey arrived in town. He's friends with Vishnal and Kiel, and from time to time he can be found hanging out with the two in Kiel's house. He likes to tease the two, but is just as likely to be subject to their light jests. However, he harbors a secret that prevents him from fully opening up to the town, which is closely linked to the plot. For this reason, Doug's FP or LP will not rise above 3 until the second part of the plot has been completed.

Personality

While he gets along well enough with most of the town, there's one person Doug just can't see eye to eye with: Dylas. The two are near incapable of being in the same room without arguing. Even when forced to see things from the other's perspective and trying to apologize for a previous fight, the two still end up yelling at one another. However, many of the townsfolk suspect they care about one another quite a bit, and the two have been known to show small, friendly gestures, such as secretly giving one another birthday gifts, or showing concern when the other is in danger.

Doug loves anything that keeps him active or involves food, but has a short attention span for most other activities. Festivals like the Buddy Battle or the Eating Contest excite him, but Fishing Tournaments or Crop Festivals don't interest him much. While he loves to eat, and can inhale unhealthy amounts of rice, he's not overly skilled at cooking. On White's Day he'll even mention that he baked so many cookies that didn't turn out right that he's stuffed from having eaten the duds.

He has a bit of an ego, and likes to think of himself as tough. He enjoys training and can be boastful at times, but is quick to agree that he's not the strongest person in town.

Despite being a dwarf, Doug isn't good at any sort of crafting activity. His clan died before anyone could train him, and he's self-depreciating about his lack of skill when it comes to making accessories or weapons.

The Together Trio

Clorica, Amber and Doug had create a group called "The Together Trio". They started a course called "Get it Together Course." Doug joined in the group because "a girl(Clorica/Amber) asked him to hang out". They wanted to do something else as their daily routine, or become more active. On the first day, they went to meet their first expert, 'Expert Forte'. She joins them for exercise, as "a disciplined mind, means a disciplined body". She later lead them on a "light jogging", they meet at the plaza, then had some "sparring practice".

The next day, the three of them went to meet 'Expert Arthur'. Upon hearing their 'course', Arthur offered them to help with his work. Doug didn't really wanted to, but he agreed to help afterwards. Arthur then gave them the paperwork, he asked them to stamp the forms and tells them that those paperworks were not the most difficult jobs, but they are nonetheless important. After a few minutes, Doug was bored, so he went outside, bringing much to Lest/Frey's doubt to their 'help' to Arthur. Arthur, being an optimist, believed that they were doing their best in their own way. After done 'helping, Clorica thanked Arthur for teaching them, Arthur thanked them back for helping with his work instead. They went out not a moment after. They promised to meet again tomorrow, Clorica was having fun working, even though Doug think they should really do something else than 'work', Amber was just happy to be a part of the group.

The next, the trio went to see Margaret, calling her 'Expert Meg'. Margaret had heard about them studying on how 'to get it together', she decided to teach them something that will help them foster their sense of rhythm. At first, they didn't understand it, Margaret then explain that rhythm isn't just important in music, but in everyday life. She tells them that keeping a rhythm in performing their daily activities regularly such as "sleeping regularly" and "eating three square meals a day". She believed that by setting and keeping up a proper daily rhythm will help them keep it together. She began the lesson by starting the music, she then starts teaching them how to keep in rhythm by having them keep up with her dance moves. Doug was a bit sloppy, but he still tries to keep up. One the second 'phrase', Doug fell, and didn't seem wanted to rise up. After the lesson, he felt dizzy, and wasn't sure he can dance some more. The three of them had a small meeting afterwards. Clorica said that the next lesson will be the last, Doug didn't really understand the lesson, but was a bit sad that the lessons are almost over.

On the following day, they went to see 'Expert Dolce'. Dolce said that she doesn't have anything to teach them. But after Clorica, Amber and Doug persuade her, Dolce agreed after being called a 'Teacher'. She began teaching them to keep it together by alway keeping calm under any cicumstances. Suddenly, Pico came rushing to hug Dolce, but Dolce dodged and Pico accidentally fell into the river. Then, Dolce wanted them to try keeping calm, but Doug was not sure how to. Clorica sees Vishnal just by walking by the street, she called him to join them. Dolce wanted Vishnal to be their 'practice opponent', Vishnal asked what kind of practice opponent it was, Dolce replied by saying to let the three of them just beat him up. The three of them had beaten him up, leaving Vishnal all bruised up. Dolce said that the lesson is over, then she brings Vishnal over to the clinic. Clorica announced that their "Get It Together Course" has already finished. Doug was happy that the course is finished, Amber was also happy that they all worked hard. Doug asked Clorica why she just give away a 'lukewarm' reaction. Clorica still wasn't sure if she really can keep it together. Doug and Amber tells her that she had more of it together than both of them. Clorica is grateful that she improved. She said that "The Together Trio" finally had to break-up, but she is sure that their experience together will last forever.

Past

Monster Spoiler Spoiler Warning: The following may contain important spoilers about characters or parts in the story.
Before coming to Selphia, Doug lived with his father and clan somewhere in or near the Sechs Empire. On one day he happened to leave on his own, and returned to find his whole clan had been killed.

Events

[Event Participants]
Dylas, Doug, Vishnal, Kiel, Arthur, Leon

Doug:
Man, that was a tough one.

Doug :
You should have seen the size of that monster! It was huge!

Doug:
I made short work of it, though. Chased it right off, ha ha ha!

Dylas:
Hmph. I would've squashed it in half the times it took you.

Vishnal:
Really?

Leon:
I could have defeated it without even touching it.

Vishnal:
W-wow! Really?

Arthur:
I suspect I could have defeated it as I worked.

Vishnal:
Oh my goodness, really?!

Vishnal:
Everyone is so incredible!

Dylas:
Ih, Vishnal? They're just messing with you.

Kiel:
Still, which one of us do you think is the strongest?

Leon:
Myself, likely.

Arthur:
All right then, we shall label Leon the strongest.

Vishnal:
So Leon is? Wow...

Doug:
Whoa, whoa, whoa! I've got a different opinion over here!

Arthur:
Yes, Doug?

Doug:
The strongest one of us is ME!

Dylas:
What are you going on about? No way you're the strongest one.

Doug:
What, you think it's you?

Doug:
Don't kid yourself!

Dylas:
What was that, pebble-brain?

Doug:
Just what I said, nag!

Arthur:
Decorum, gentlemen. Let us keep our decorum.

Arthur:
If we are to decide which of you is stronger, I suggest an arm-wrestling contest.

Dylas:
Arm-wrestling?

Doug:
I'm cool with that.

Doug:
Let's do it!

Dylas:
Yeah. Bring it on, midget!

Doug:
You've got it, sway-back!

Leon:
I think I'll be heading home.

Arthur:
I, as well.

Vishnal:
Oh yeah! I have some work I need to finish.

Kiel:
I guess I'll go home too, then.

Dylas:
HNGRAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!

Doug:
HNNNNNNGGGHH!!!

Hmm. Red, I guess.

Kiel:
Ah, passionate red, eh?

Definitely blue.

Kiel:
Ooh, that makes sense. The whole "cool beauty" thing, right?

Yellow is cool.

Kiel:
Ah ha! Yeah, that's a really bright, fun color, isn't it?

Raaainbooow!

Kiel:
Um...I don't know if that counts as a color...

Frey:
Yeah, I was just joking.

Kiel:
Oh! But the book does have it.

Frey:
No way!

Frey:
So how well are we supposed to get along?

Kiel
Lessee...

Kiel:
...

Kiel:
*SLAM*

Frey:
Hmm? Why'd you close the book?

Kiel:
Well...

Kiel:
It said we probably won't get along well.

Frey:
Oh, that's too bad.

Frey:
But it's just a silly fortune-telling game, in the end. We shouldn't take it too seriously.

Kiel:
Hmph.

Kiel:
Still...it would stink if someone decided not to like me because of this.

Kiel:
Especially if that someone was you, Frey.

Kiel:
...It's funny. Whenever I think of you, I get this really weird feeling in my chest.

Kiel:
I wonder what is is?

Frey:
...

That's weird.

Kiel:
Yeah.

Frey:
Uh, sorry. I didn't actually mean that.

Frey:
What I meant is, maybe it's love?

That's love.

Kiel:
Oh, maybe...

Kiel:
...

Kiel:
...

Kiel:
N-no it isn't!

Kiel:
Well, okay, so maybe it is kinda sorta that, but it isn't!

Kiel:
It...it's...argh!! Stupid Frey!!

Frey:
He ran away...

Main Sub-Event

To see Doug's marriage sub-event, A Very Special Ring, his LP must be raised to at least 10 and the player has seen the random event Shining Memory and Doug's Secret. When it triggers, Doug will mention his late father, who was unable to teach Doug something before he died. Doug will then ask Frey out on a date and start fishing for information on how she wants to be proposed to. Over the next few days, Doug will be found asking the bachelors for advice on confessing, research help, and will practice confessing his love to Dylas. Shortly after, he will lock himself in Bado's forge and ask Frey to wait and not ask any questions.

After Frey recruits the bachelorettes to investigate, they come back with the finding that Doug looked into his clan's traditions, and has the materials for making an engagement ring. When Frey and the girls attempt to confront Doug, he gives a ring to everyone but Frey, and is chased of by Margaret for hurting her feelings. Doug comes to see Frey later and asks to please forgive him and wait a little longer, and shortly after the bachelors will come to Frey and clear up the confusion. Doug's clan has a tradition of giving a ring to everyone in the family of whoever they are proposing to. Since Doug cannot forge well, he was making Frey's ring last in the hopes that it would turn out best.

After the confusion is cleared, Frey goes to see Doug, who climbs onto the roof of his house and shouts out that he loves her, and asks for her hand in marriage.
