Complete guide to Maru in Stardew Valley

Maru is a villager who lives in the mountains to the north of Pelican Town. Here's what the developers had to say about their creation:

“Growing up with a carpenter and a scientist for parents, Maru acquired a passion for creating gadgets at a young age. When she isn’t in her room, fiddling with tools and machinery, she sometimes does odd jobs at the local clinic. Friendly, outgoing, and ambitious, Maru would be quite a lucky match for a lowly newcomer such as yourself… Can you win her heart, or will she slip through your fingers and disappear from your life forever?”

Maru lives with her parents Demetrius and Robin, as well as her half-brother Sebastian. She has a strained relationship with him and wishes it was a better one. Like all NPCs, there are certain gifts that will impact the player's relationship with Maru.
