Animal Crossing: City Folk
Francine (フランシーヌ, Frances) is a snooty, rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series. She originally appears Animal Forest e+ and later reappears in Animal Crossing: City Folk. As a snooty villager, she will appear rude and arrogant towards the player, but will accept the player as a friend despite continuing her typical, sly comments. Her name doesn't refer to her character or name. However, her initial phrase "karat" is a homophone on the vegetable, carrot - a typical food item for rabbits and karat, carat in the UK, - a way to measure gold purity. As a snooty villager, gold would possibly refer to her stylish, materialistic lifestyle.
Francine is a white rabbit with a blue polka dotted hood, blue tights and wears a dark polka shirt, blue eye liner, blue and white polka dotted eyeshadow, and pink blush. She also has a lemon-yellow fringe to match her soft cloudy apperance, and a green nose which stands out from her cloudy complexion. She is almost identical in appearance to Chrissy, who is pink instead of blue. Her initial item of clothing is the dark polka shirt, which matches her dark and rude personality. On rainy days, she carries a ribbon umbrella.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
As a snooty villager, Francine will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her fashion, but will be nice and pleasurable if the conversation is mature and non-insulting. She may also talk about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about her own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Francine will find it hard to get along with other villagers, specifically jock and lazy villagers who have conflicting lifestyles compared to her own. She may get along with cranky villagers, who also enjoy gossiping about the appearance and lifestyles of others. Like peppy villagers, she reads a magazine called Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine featured in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk.
