“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 woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. She was also the only female eagle until New Leaf when Celia was introduced. She has the music hobby.
Amelia is a red and white eagle, strongly resembling the Crested Caracara, a bird of prey native to South America. Her feathers are different shades of blue, and her head is primarily white looking similar to Apollo. She has red on her face, half her beak, and the rim close to her neck. Amelia also wears cyan eyeshadow. In Animal Forest, Amelia wears no eyeliner, something that was changed in later games. She initially wears a spider web shirt, which was changed to the Aran-knit sweater in New Horizons.
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.
In New Leaf, Amelia's house remains relatively unchanged from previous games.
In New Horizons, Amelia's house is white with a white iron grill door and a red tile roof. The interior is still desert themed and has the summit wall and the red kilim-style carpet on the common flooring. She has a dark wood log bed, round table, extra-long sofa, decorative shelves, and bench. She also has a mini-cactus set, a red plaid clothesline, an old-fashioned washtub, a phonograph, and a cherry acoustic guitar.
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.
