Chester in City Folk

Chester is a cub that has the appearance of a panda. He has blue patches around his eyes, a white face, rosy cheeks, and blue ears. His facial expression is constantly unhappy, and he grits his teeth when talking, which makes him look like a cranky villager. His initial clothing is the Yellow Bar Shirt. His appearance is similar to Chow, a bear villager.


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Chester will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Chester will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug and sisterly villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.


Chester's house resembles a zen garden, and Imperial K.K. plays in his house. This song has an Oriental theme, reflecting the furnishings and the panda's native country, China.

  • Chester's name might be a pun on chess, as he has a black and white color scheme and his catchphrase is "rookie" (a rook is a kind of chess piece).
