Role in the film
When Jaq and Gus try to help her sew the dress, she rebuffs them by saying "leave the sewing to the women," ordering the two to get decor for the dress. Perla's skill at sewing implies that she may have helped Cinderella make the clothing for the other mice to ease her workload. She is close friends with Suzy and is portrayed as kind and helpful, but is also shown to have sass and to be a bit forceful.
She is a brown mouse who wears a pink dress with a white apron and pink cap; in the original film it seems to change from pink to blue to lavender. She has a pink ribbon on her tail, and this too changes color. As a character in the theme parks, she dresses in purple and her apron is pink.
