Personality and FactsEdit

Felicity (nicknamed Lissie) is a spunky, brave, and independent-minded girl. She is very active for a girl her age in her era and is annoyed at her lack of freedom as a young girl and the ladylike things and personality that is expected of her. Felicity believes in fighting for what she wants and can be quite stubborn and headstrong at times; this gives her a strong connection to Benjamin Davidson. When she wants something, she goes for it, quite often without thinking about it. She sometimes wavers between brave and foolish and sets her hearts on things quite often.

Felicity learned to ride and make friends with horses at Grandfather's Plantation; this aids her in taming Penny, but is a hindrance when it gives her overconfidence in Felicity Takes a Dare.

She is constantly fussed at for being not very ladylike. For the most part Felicity is a "tomboy" with a love for horses, nature, and the great outdoors. She is quite impatient--especially when it comes to things she finds dull and boring--and is often regarded as "flighty" and "thoughtless" by her mother and often chided for not finishing or tending to her domestic work properly. She shows disinterest for the most part in cooking, sewing, dance, and other then-feminine skills, though she does like working in her garden. Sewing especially bores her and she is generally sloppy in her work. She loves horses more than anything, hence her affection for Penny that is carried throughout the series and her dedicated care towards her from the start. She eventually learns how to be more of a lady throughout the series with events such as dancing at a fancy ball and learning how to serve tea; however, she is still quite active.

American Girl characterizes her as "spunky" and "spritely."

  • Felicity’s low cut outfits resulted in the body fabric of the dolls being changed from white to skin-colored.
  • When Kaya debuted in 2002, Felicity was pulled from the catalogs with a note saying that she would now be an online exclusive; during this time several of her items and outfits were retired. She was later revamped with the release of her movie and Elizabeth Cole.
