Claudia (マリリン, Maririn?) is a snooty tiger villager who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Her Japanese name is most likely a reference to Marilyn Monroe, a famous actress in the 50's. Her English name is similar in sound to "claw" as she is a tiger, which was probably intentional. Her initial catchphrase is a reference to her being a snooty villager, which is used commonly in movies or television shows and dramas involving preppy girls and snobby girls. It is similar to the one of Petunia. She shares a birthday with Sable.
Claudia's main color is a hot pink, with dark blue stripes over her arms, legs, tail and head. She has black half-lidded eyes with blue eye shadow. The insides of her ears are light blue, rimmed with a darker blue. Her muzzle is light pink and her nose is black. Initially she wears a Spring Shirt. On her face are two blue stripes on either cheek, placed so that they look like whiskers.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
She is a snooty character, which means she will appear rude and arrogant when talking to the player. She will talk about the style and appearance of other villagers, including the player, giving her opinion on what they are wearing. She will warm up to the player after some time talking to them, sharing any gossip and asking them for their opinion on what they are wearing and holding. She will find it hard to get along with other villagers, specifically jock and lazy villagers who have conflicting lifestyles with her own. She may get on with cranky villagers, who also enjoy gossiping about the appearance and lifestyles of others.
Claudia's house is posh with classy and dapper furniture from the Regal Series such as the regal bed and lamp. She has a Skyscraper wall along with the rose carpet and has K.K. Synth playing on a Retro Stereo.
