“Whaaat?! You opened it? But I spent all that time wrapping it.”
― Beau, after opening his gift for another villager, New Leaf
Beau (ぺーター,Pētā?, Peter) is a lazydeervillager in the Animal Crossing series. His name is a masculine word which means 'beautiful' or 'handsome' in French, and is pronounced 'bow'. His initial phrase refers to a salt block, which some people use to attract deer. Beau is very similar to an antelope, which are deer-like animals that are common in Africa and Eurasia.
He is featured on the cover of Mr. K.K. and he has the nature hobby.
Beau has the appearance of either an impala, a kob or a pronghorn which are all species of antelope. He has an orange/ginger coat with a white snout. His ears are black-tipped, he has black hooves, and antlers that are striped a cream-ish yellow and a more gold-ish yellow . He also has droopy eyes with white circles surrounding them, and peach colored eyelids. He initially wears the Deer Tee, which was changed to the Reindeer Sweater in New Horizons.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Beau will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Beau will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug and sisterly villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.
In New Leaf, Beau has Mountain Song playing on his tape deck. He also has a tree standee and two mountain standees, giving it an outdoorsy feel. His home also includes a bird cage, a picnic table, a hammock, and a dog house.
In New Horizons, Beau's house still has a natural and/or outdoorsy theme. In the center of the room is a picnic setup which includes the outdoor picnic set, green picnic basket, and blue vinyl sheet. Beau's home is also decorated with a pond stone, silver smoker, pile of firewood, white brick oven, white sleeping bag, and a silver cassette player sitting upon a log bench. His wallpaper is the Meadow Vista, and his flooring is the Daisy Meadow.
