My Time at Sandrock Wiki

Arvio and his sister Amirah came from Barnarock to Sandrock where they both opened their own shops. Arvio is charming and clever. He is very good at selling his goods to customers and is always trying to make his store more attractive.
— In-game bio
As I recall, there was a legendary brother and sister duo starting up some kind of trade post out there. Some say they wrote the book on economics. Others say that's completely untrue. Nevertheless, their ceramics are top notch.

Personal summary[]

Arvio is the owner of Sandrock's general store. He is a salesman by heart and works hard to improve his shop and its sales. Like his older sister, Amirah, he is a native of Barnarock and had a hard start in life. Arvio cares deeply for his sister and would never do anything - including business - that could upset their relationship. He enjoys relaxing under a sunshade looking on the oasis or relaxing in the gaming center. His sister often joins him for dinner.

Some of the cosmetics Arvio sells were developed by Haru before Haru and Logan became criminals. Arvio still keeps an account with Haru's share of the profits hoping that eventually Haru will be able to return and collect them.

See Dialogue subpage for all Arvio's dialogue.

Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Arvio once a day can increase the relationship by 1 point; subsequent chatting, on the same day, only results in the same conversation without any relationship gain.

Arvio's dialogue may change every day and every season. Arvio may also comment about certain events or missions. Higher relationship levels, including romantic involvement, also change Arvio's dialogue.

If Arvio has a desire, gifting the wanted item will give the higher tier points; otherwise the item gives the base point value. The item's quality is taken into account when fulfilling a desire; gifting Arvio a higher quality item will yield more relationship points.
