Gwen is a snooty penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series. Gwen's name is a play on Penguin. Her Japanese name, Pōra, is the way both "Paula" and "polar" are pronounced in Japanese, referencing the cold climates associated with penguins.

Gwen is a white and dark purple penguin. She has dark purple hair and black eyes, with light violet mascara. In Doubutsu no Mori, Gwen's mascara is purple, and her eyes are slightly farther apart. Her beak and feet are yellow-orange.


Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here. Gwen is a snooty villager. She can be extremely friendly once she has befriended the player, but will be rude at first. This eventually changes - she will become more hospitable, though, of course, she will still come out with some snooty remarks and cheeky comments, for that is her personality and she just cannot help it. Gwen loves writing to the player and having a chat round the town, if they do become close to her she will happily give the player her photo.

Her house has a musical theme, featuring much of the Musical Instruments set. She also has a phonograph playing "Café K.K.," a Classic Buffet, a Classic Clock, possibly some of the House Plant Set, and other classic items. Gwen also favors white furniture and blue furniture. She has a Round Carpet and a Cityscape Wall. She likes to change her theme sometimes, which may mean she will ask the player to find her some furniture.
