― Paula, New Leaf
Paula (レイチェル, Reicheru?, Rachel) is a peppy, but later sisterly, bear villager from the Animal Crossing series series. She first appeared in Animal Forest e+, was absent from many games of the series, and returns in New Leaf and New Horizons with her personality changed to sisterly. Her name may refer to a bear's paws. Being absent from many of the Animal Crossing games, her picture quote may be a reference to her sporadic reappearances, or due to the fact she wears a hippie-like headband from the 70's. She appears on the album covers for K.K. Dixie and K.K. Oasis. She has the fitness hobby.

Paula is a brown bear with blonde hair. She wears a white and brown striped headband. The inside of her ears, muzzle, and paws are all light beige, and she wears blue eye shadow. In her original appearance, she initially wears a Denim Shirt when she first gets into the player's town. However, in New Leaf, she initially wears the Pep Squad Shirt.

Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.
Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Paula will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects, and will usually be over-excited to see the player or other villagers. This villager, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. Peppy villagers dream of becoming famous in the future and read Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty, normal, and other peppy villagers in the Animal Crossing Series. Peppy villagers will also have a very short attention span, which means they soon forget some arguments or tasks given to the player which were not completed. Paula may easily get upset in conversation when the wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly lazy, normal, jock, sisterly and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ to hers. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.

Below is a brief description of the sisterly personality. For more information, click here.
Paula is a sisterly villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Paula will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a bee. Like all sisterly villagers, Paula is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Paula has a tendency to stay up very late at night. It is easy to get her picture since developing friendships with sisterly villagers is simple due to her caring and protective nature.

Paula will treat the player with respect and will even offer to fight off anyone giving the player trouble. Paula may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, lazy villagers for how laid-back they are, and peppy villagers. However, she may conflict with snooty and cranky villagers, who spread rumors about others, and she may have trouble getting along with normal villagers.


In Animal Forest e+, Paula's house is almost identical to Bangle's, with the only difference being the Orange Tile and the Groovy Wall. Her reel-to-reel plays "K.K. Technopop."

In New Leaf, Paula's house has a couple items from the Cabana Series. She also has a few Patchwork Items, and there are a few plants around her house. She also owns a bubblegum machine and a drum. She has "K.K. Dixie" playing on her stereo.
