Booker (おまわりさんB, Policeman B / もんばんさんA, Gatekeeper) is a bulldog who has been appeared in all of the Animal Crossing games, along with his brother, Copper. His name refers to "booking" someone meaning to arrest them. He appears nervous and unsure of himself when talking to the player, hesitating to speak using words like "Um..." which contrasts with Copper's personality and bravery. He works (with Copper) twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week taking no breaks, unlike other service characters in the game.
In Animal Crossing and Animal Forest, he wears typical police officer attire; blue police uniform, police cap and badge. In Wild World and City Folk, he wears typical guardsman attire; red uniform with a white cross on the front and a green helmet. He holds a wooden pike which he pokes the ground with when approached. Other than this, he has the appearance of a typical bulldog, such as the chubby cheeks and the lazy, tired looking eyes.
In Animal Crossing: Wild World, Booker stands on the left of the gate inside the The Gate. He will show the player the lost and found, tell them which visitors are in the village (if any) and change the flag to a different design. Like in the original Animal Crossing, he will give away any of the lost and found items away, without questioning the player.
Aside from slightly different speech, Booker's role in Animal Crossing: City Folk is exactly the same as in Animal Crossing: Wild World. He can be found in the same area, inside the town gate on the left hand side. Booker is very shy, and unsure in letting you change things (like the village flag) and letting you look inside the Lost and Found. He is also unsure of the exact time that people come through the town gate.
