Roald (ペンタ, Penta?) is a jock penguin villager from the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in every game so far. Roald's name could possibly come from Roald Amundsen, the first person to reach the South Pole, the natural habitat of penguins.
Roald is a dark, navy blue Adelie Penguin, who is initially wearing a red and white checked Cafe Shirt. His eyes are half-closed, which may make him look like a lazy villager. He has a stomach that is white and a beak, as every penguin has, that is yellow-orange. His feet are the same color, too, and his wings are the same color as his back.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
At first, you might not see it, but Roald has a jock personality. You might not see it in him at first due to the fact that he is a penguin and has a Kiddie-themed room what makes him childish. So do not judge him at his first appearance - talk to him and you will see that he is really into sports. He claims to be the strongest villager in the town and goes waaaay overboard when it comes to fitness and muscles, much to the dismay of normal villagers who appear motherly towards him. Sometimes snooty villagers will ask him to move their house as a tease. He obviously does not, though. Roald is an active villager, so he is rarely inside his house, and never seems to get ill (like most of jock villagers). He often challenges the player to bug catching contests, and is interested in fossils and clothes. He's very friendly. Roald also enjoys a mocha with lots of milk and three spoonfuls of sugar.
In Animal Crossing: City Folk and most likely others, his house mainly contains items from both the Kiddie Series and Space Theme. He has K.K. Parade playing on his robo-stereo. He has the kiddie clock, satellite, rocket, space shuttle, telescope, bowling pins, super toilet, and a train set. He has the playroom wall and kiddie carpet.
