“The best way to let me know what you're after is by just going right up and touching it.”
― Bettina, City Folk
Bettina (マルコ, Maruko?) is a normal mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name bares no references to her character type or appearance, but her initial quote, "eekers," is a reference to the sound made by mice. Her Japanese name, "Maruko", is a common girl's name in Japan. 丸 (まる maru?) also means "round", which may refers to her round cheeks and eyes.
She has the education hobby.
Bettina is a dark red-orange mouse with yellow cheeks and yellow inner ears, as well as yellow paws and a yellow and orange striped tail. She has short, dark blonde hair swept to the right of her head. She initially wears the Chef Uniform. When it rains she will carry the Snowball Umbrella.
