Shara (シア, Sia）is the main female character/bachelorette in Rune Factory 3: A Fantasy Harvest Moon. She is Monica's older sister and Wells' eldest granddaughter. She discovered Micah in his golden wooly form when he was unconscious after he fell out of the sky, outside her house, and carried him up to her room so she could nurse him back to health. However, in the interim, he awakened in his human form and wandered around Sharance with no memory of who he is or why he came to Sharance.
She meets Micah again outside the Sharance Tree, in his human form this time, unaware that they're actually the same person. After discovering that he's an amnesiac, she invites him to live in the tree until he recovers his memories. Giving him a waterpot, a hoe, and some flower seeds, she encourages him to use the fields beneath the tree to grow crops with a cheerful expression on her face.
Shara is a very caring person who is very empathic towards everyone she meets. She will occasionally argue with her grandfather, Wells, the mayor of the town, over her habit of taking in wounded monsters, like she did with Raven.
Like Zaid, Shara also named her Tin Waterpot equipment as Mr. Sprinkles. She mentioned that the waterpot was broken and she loved it unlike any other waterpots.
She has low Str, moderate Vit, and high INT.
Shara is a very warm girl who likes to show her passion by talking to and caring for the flowers around her. She is also very kind towards Woolies and other harmless monsters. She is also the most social person in the entire village: she remembers everyone's birthday, and is always talking about their likes and dislikes. She always goes out with Monica on festival days.

Shara: What? Huh? What is it?! T-This is so sudden! A girl needs some time to prepare for something like this!
Shara: Yes! Of couse I will!
