Pelly is a female pelican who works at the Post Office in Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: New Leaf and runs the Town Hall in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. She works as a clerk during the daytime shift. Pelly appears to enjoy her work, keeping a constant cheerful mood. She can be conscious of her personality and she even goes as far to ask if she appears introverted. She is the younger sister of Phyllis, who has a different personality from Pelly, appearing rude and lacking work morale. Pelly announces special events and daybreak. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Isabelle does it instead.

Pelly can be found from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Post Office in Animal Crossing. She is the daytime clerk. The player can talk to her to send and save letters to other villagers. In other towns, the player can talk to her to send letters to villagers in that town. She is in love with Pete, but is too shy to mention it to him. Unlike her sister Phyllis, Pelly is always kind to the player.
Pelly has the same role in Animal Crossing: Wild World as she did in Animal Crossing, where she will send and save letters for the player. She now lets the player edit the Town Tune. Pelly has a secret crush on Pete, the mail worker. She will sometimes sigh about Pete, and she may tell the player her story. She writes on the town bulletin board about happenings, birthdays, and her own anonymous thoughts. She can be found enjoying coffee in The Roost an hour before her shift on random days. The player can get Pelly upset; after the player shoots Pete from the sky and becomes friends with him, Pelly will give the player a "talk."
Pelly's photograph (or "Pic") can be obtained after the player saves 100,000,000 Bells in the bank account. The picture quote is "Always remember the Boondoxians". Pelly has an ongoing job to better the Boondoxians, poor, inept villagers in a town.
Pelly still works the same shift at the Town Hall in Animal Crossing: City Folk. However, she can now fix problems for the player, such as the chance the player is locked out of his or her own house or if there is a problem with the player's villagers' clothes or catchphrases. She does not handle banking anymore, as that is now part of the ABD (Automatic Bell Dispenser). Her writing on the bulletin board remains, and she still has a crush on Pete.
Pelly can be seen in the Roost sometimes before her shift in the Town Hall. She can be found from 6:00 a.m. to 6:59 a.m., waiting for her shift. Pelly will often say that Phyllis is not as mean as she looks.
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pelly once again works at the Post Office, which is now located on Main Street, separate from the Town Hall. As in the previous games, she works in the early hours of the day, and she retains her cheery mood. However, unlike past entries in the series, she no longer announces special events and daybreak, giving the task to Isabelle instead.
Pelly appeared in Doubutsu no Mori (film), and served as a supporting character. She helped Ai when she first came to Animal Village. She can also be seen stopping Tortimer from surfing in the Summer and looking at Gulliver's crashed U.F.O. behind a tree with Phyllis.
Pelly appears in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp as the host of the garden event Pelly's Flight of Passion, in which the player must plant Bleeding Hearts in order to attract heartbeetles. If the player catches a certain amount, Pelly will reward them with gifts.
