Because she's been through a good deal well, keep a thought that is hot in your heart for Sable. Back in Wild World, speaking to Animal Crossing Nook Miles Ticket her enough times will lead to her opening up on her the childhood of Mabel: their parents died when they were young, therefore Sable ended up raising Mabel on her own. She doesn't go into particulars, because among the things we know for certain is really that at one stage, the claws of Mabel ended up becoming frostbitten, but it must have been rough.
Sable spins the anecdote as the start of her fascination with clothing and fashion design, because the first thing she ever produced was a set of gloves for Mabel--who immediately put them on her ears, since little sisters will be small sisters--but frostbite? Hello? It explains why Mabel's that the saleswoman of the Able Sisters, instead of linking her sister behind the machine.
The Ables' backstory does not end there though, since there's just another one of them: that's right, Label, the sister who ran off to the city and abandoned Mabel to be raised by Sable alone. Introduced City Folk, she's first struck at GracieGrace--Gracie's style shop --under the name Labelle. There is not much to her something about her sure looks awfully familiar, but speaking with her alone reveals little about her past, and also she's pleasant, polite.
It is not until New Leaf that the sisters' backstory is unveiled. At some point, Label and took on the name Labelle and Sable had a massive argument and Label left to produce a life for herself, where she met Gracie. Talk about profound lore!
Fast forward back to that which, and New Leaf appears to have worked out. Gracie runs GracieGrace by herself in the TT Emporium because Label's working at the Abel Sisters, selling attachments in the extension to the primary store. She's still going by Labelle, but given that she definitely got the short end of her family's naming convention stick, who can blame her?
Feeling sad about the Able sisters yet? It is a fact that their history is a little out of place in a setting where gamers' most significant problems have to do with enlarging their McMansion. For people who feel as though this type of backstory is too dim for Animal Crossing, do not worry--someone in the group should concur with you, since New Horizons retcons their own backstory. While I believe Mabel and Sable's parents continue to be very much dearly departed, as far as the match reveals, Label left the family business with her sisters' blessing to begin her very own designer new"Labelle".
Nada, injury. Feelings of jealousy and betrayal, zilch. Tense reconciliation. New Horizons spins the sisters' history into something more optimistic, tying in with the match's trend of turning Tom Nook to a sympathetic figure and making the villagers significantly nicer and more easygoing. There is plenty of mixed feelings about that moving round the playerbase, and it's about time the Able sisters' backstory made a dash in cheap Animal Crossing Bells that great big ongoing debate.
