Gene: Pint-Sized Party Planner
"Gene is the blocky, pint-sized leader of the Nicelanders—the window-filling victims of Ralph's destruction in the game Fix-It Felix Jr. Like his fellow apartment residents in peril, Gene worships Felix and despises Ralph. In his spare time, Gene plans cocktail parties, but is always sure to leave Ralph off the guest list: To Gene, Ralph's just a bad guy and that's all he'll ever be."

Gene is a short, stout mustached man with fair skin and short black hair. He typically wears an indigo cardigan over a white suit, but wore a formal white outfit at the 30th anniversary party. Like other Nicelanders, he is characterized by his chubby, square-shaped form and proportions.
Gene is antagonistic, aggressive, pushy, and outspoken. He carries a heavy grudge against Ralph, and consistently antagonizes him and excludes him from activities, including the 30th anniversary for Fix-It Felix Jr. Despite his pompous attitude and issues owning up to his mistakes, Gene is a self-proclaimed man of his word; he allows Ralph into the penthouse when he returns with a medal. At the end of the film, it is seen that he and Ralph have made ammends, and in the tie-in comic 'Wrecking Party', the two are evidently friends.
Additionally, in nearly every scene where Gene appears, he is shown to be holding a cocktail glass which could imply that he is a frequent drinker.
