“I love eating a peach straight from a mitten. It's like a fuzzy wrapper, cuz.”
― Amelia, New Leaf
Amelia (アンデス,Andesu?, Andes) is a snootyeaglevillager from the Animal Crossing series. Her Japanese name could come from a breed of eagle and a shortening of a place in South America. Her English name is a reference to Amelia Earheart, the first female pilot to take flight. She was also known to be the only female eagle until New Leaf when Celia was introduced. Her initial phrase in Animal Crossing is a reference towards her species and that a baby eagle is called an eaglet.
Amelia strongly resembles the Crested Caracara, a bird of prey native to South America. She initially wears a spider web shirt and has cyan eyelids. Her feathers are different shades of blue, and her head is primarily white but red on her face, half her beak, and rimmed close to her neck. In Animal Forest, Amelia looks the same as she is in later games, only that she wears no eyeliner.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Amelia has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Amelia will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Amelia will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jockvillagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.
She has a variety of desert-like furniture, with items from the Cabin and Ranch series, including things like a cactus, a guitar, the Desert Vista wallpaper, and the Cabin Rug flooring. She has a Tall Puffoid gyroid. She plays K.K. Condor on her stereo if she has one. In New Leaf, her house remains relatively unchanged from previous games.
It's true that birds of a feather flock together, but for Amelia, no one is good enough, and she flocks with no bird. Believe that she descends from eagle royalty, Amelia thinks she may just be a princess herself.
