Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Al from City Folk.

Al has lime green skin, dark green fur, round eyes, and thick, red lips. His eyebrows are dark green and thick.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Al has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Al goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.
