In Cinders the player can start a relationship with some of the characters from the game.

To do this the player first has to obtain the Ring of Betrothal, and then talk with the choosen candidate.

Once proposed, a flirt option will unlock with that character. This option has three outcomes and is randomized upon resting at a bonfire. Getting a "good" outcome will reward the player with a unique gift, specific to that character.
