Peatrice's job at the Item Check bores her, so she spends most of her time daydreaming about the perfect man. Initially, she treats Link with indifference and a slight degree of sarcasm, but if he visits her regularly after completing the Lanayru Mining Facility, she gradually becomes more affectionate towards him. The manner of winning her affection is to visit her in the Skyloft Bazaar once per day for a number of days. If he stops visiting her, she will revert to her indifferent personality. After visiting Peatrice enough times,[how many?] the young woman becomes more cheerful and flirtatious around Link, using words like "sweetie" and "darling" to address him. If he visits her house at night at this stage, she will ask Link how he feels about her. Link can choose to tell Peatrice that he likes her, or he can reject her.
If he tells her that he likes her, she will reward him with five Gratitude Crystals and Fi's comment will change to confirm that Link is interested in Peatrice, and advises him not to mention her around Zelda. Peatrice will also tell Link that she understands that he is on an adventure, and promises to take care of his items and to keep their love secret until he completes his task.
If he chooses to reject her, her father Peater will express gratitude that his daughter's secret suitor isn't bothering her anymore and give Link five Gratitude Crystals. Incidentally, after this, upon being talked to again, Peatrice will make humorous comments about her broken heart. She also will wonder why her father has been in such a good mood after her rejection.
Since most Skyloftians are named after birds, her name seems to come from the Peacock and possibly Rectrice, tail feathers. It may also be a corruption of "Beatrice" with the reference to "peacock", much like her father's name.

And that's why I won't ask any more of you. I'll just watch over you, protecting you from afar, keeping a vigilant eye on your items.

- "I don't know why, but my father has been in a great mood lately... Does he even realize that his only daughter has just had her heart broken for the very first time? How annoying..." — Peatrice (Skyward Sword)
