"Isabelle's twin brother Digby works at the Happy Home Showcase, but if he needs a quick break, he'll head down to the Roost for a cup of coffee. He takes Blue Mountain, black, no sugar, whereas his sister likes her coffee with a lot of milk and three sugars. Funny how something as simple as a coffee order can make you sound more mature."


  • Even in the rain, Digby stills stands outside the Happy Home Showcase. He will put on a yellow raincoat to cover himself from the rain.
  • In Happy Home Designer, Lottie repeatedly mentions her love for Digby to the player allthough he seems oblivious to it.
