"It looked chewy, I guess, but it certainly WASN'T fruit!"
— Claudia, Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Claudia (マリリン,,Maririn?) is a snootytigervillager 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.
Claudia has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Claudia will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks 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, confining in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Claudia will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jockvillagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.
Claudia's house greatly resembles a fancy hotel. She has a Gorgeous Counter at the front, representing a hotel counter. This counter displays a genie lamp, as well as some red lilies. The back of her house resembles a hotel room, as there is a whirlpool bath, as well as a Regal Bed, and a Regal Lamp. Her Retro Stereo plays K.K. Synth. Claudia's wallpaper is the Cityscape Wall, and her flooring is the Fancy Carpet.
