Carmen (ゼリー,Zerī?) is a snootymousevillager in the Animal Crossing series. She was originally going to appear in City Folk, but she was replaced by a rabbitvillager named Carmen, a villager with the same name. Her initial catchphrase is a derogatory term that means "someone from the country" or "acts like a worthless country low-life", which suits her snooty personality perfectly. This could also be referencing her species, the mouse, which are known to live in country and farm areas.
Carmen is a pink mouse with golden-blonde hair. The lower part of her face is a white-yellow color. She has light pink ear innards, white tail stripes, and the ends of her arms are white. She is similar in appearance to Candi. In Animal Forest, she is a darker pink color, her eyes are different, and her hair is darker. She initially wears the Ribbon Shirt, and carries the Petal Parasol on rainy days.
Carmen's house has no real theme to it. She has both items from the Red Set, the Red Armchair, and the Red Couch. She also has two cacti, and two Pineapple Beds. Her flooring is the Kitschy Flooring, and her wallpaper is the Kitschy Wall. She has no stereo at first, but if she obtains one, it will play K.K. Technopop.
Carmen loves her sleep. In fact, this little dormouse has two beds in her home-for sleepovers with friends and as a backup bed. In case of emergencies, you know? It may seem odd, but hey, variety is the spice of life.
