Portia (ブレンダ, Burenda?, Brenda) is a snooty dog villager, appearing in every game from the Animal Crossing series. She is also the only dog with a snooty personality. Her initial phrase "ruffian" is a pun on "ruff", which is a noise dogs make, and a ruffian is a person who appears untidy, hinting that Portia is a snooty villager. Her French name, Dalma, may refer to her species of dog, a Dalmatian.

She has the fashion hobby.


Portia in Animal Crossing

Portia is a dalmatian with gray spots and pale yellow eyes with black, upwards facing pupils. In Animal Forest, her mouth is small and hardly visible. Like several characters, Portia has numerous differences with her current and Animal Forest form: her eyes were smaller, differently shaped, and placed lower on her face. Portia initially wears the Polar Fleece in all her video game appearances, except for New Leaf in which she wears the Blue Diamond Shirt, and New Horizons where she wears the Rad power skirt suit.


Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.

Portia has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Portia 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, confiding in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Portia 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 jock villagers 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.


Portia's house is very elegant and her furniture choice primarily consists of Regal Furniture and has been unchanged for years, and had Café K.K. as her choice of song prior to New Horizons. In Animal Crossing, Portia's house consists of regal furniture, along with two shirts and an umbrella, along with a phonograph playing Cafe K.K. In Wild World and City Folk, Portia's theme of her house has been unchanged, only with a classic buffet and one shirt, and Cafe K.K. still plays. In New Leaf, Portia's house still keeps it's elegant theme, only that there are three shirt and a red bed, there is no phonograph anymore, but if you give her a stereo, it will play Cafe K.K.

Profile It's not easy dealing with a bossy older sister, but Portia was an only pup and never had the chance to pick on a younger brother. That doesn't make it right. But it does explain some things.
