Booker (おまわりさんB・もんばんさんA, Omawari-san B; Monban-san A?, Policeman B; Gatekeeper A) is a bulldog who has appeared in all of the Animal Crossing series games, along with his working partner, Copper. He is one of few characters meant to be an actual breed. His name refers to "booking" someone, which means "to arrest". He appears nervous and unsure of himself when talking to the player, hesitating to speak using words like "Um..." which contrasts with Copper's personality and bravery. At one point he may tell the player that this is because English is not his first language and he feels he isn't very good at it, all before quickly apologizing and clamming up. He works (with Copper) twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week taking no breaks, unlike other service characters in the game.
In Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+, he wears typical police officer attire; blue police uniform with matching cap and badge. In Wild World and City Folk, he wears typical guardsman attire; red uniform with a white cross on the front and a green helmet. He holds a wooden pike which he pokes the ground with when approached. Other than this, he has the appearance of a typical bulldog, such as the chubby cheeks and the lazy, tired looking eyes. In New Leaf, he takes on a similar appearance as in Animal Crossing and Animal Forest by wearing a police uniform.
In Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+
In Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+, Booker is a police officer running the lost and found inside the Police Station. He gives away any of the lost and found items, without questioning the player on whether they lost that item or not. He appears to question this to himself, by saying "Umm, okay, that's a lot of items," but never acts upon it.
In Wild World
In Wild World, Booker stands on the left of the gate inside the Town Gate. He will show the player the lost and found, tell them which visitors are in town (if any) and change the flag to a different design. Like in the original Animal Crossing, he will give away any of the lost and found items away, without questioning the player. At first he refuses to talk to the player.
In City Folk
Aside from slightly different speech, Booker's role in City Folk is exactly the same as in Wild World. He can be found in the same area, inside the town gate on the left hand side. Booker is very shy, and unsure in letting the player change things (like the town flag) and letting them look inside the Lost and Found. He is also unsure of the exact time that people come through the town gate.
In New Leaf
Booker also comes in a plush with Copper.
