― Deirdre, New Leaf

Deirdre (ナディア, Nadia?) is a sisterly deer villager who is introduced in New Leaf. Her name is of Irish origin, and is also a pun on the fact that she is a deer. She appears on the album cover for Soulful K.K. She has the play hobby.


Deirdre in New Leaf

Deirdre is a deer with teardrop-ended eye blazes, whole-eye pupils, dark nose and hooves, auburn lobed hair, eyebrows, ear tips, white lips, belly fur, tail tip, reddish earways, blush, and eyelids. The eyelids can only be noticed when she blinks or shuts her eyes. In New Leaf, she initially wears the Fall Leaf Shirt, which ties in with the theme of her house.


Below is a brief description of the sisterly personality. For more information, click here.

Deirdre is a sisterly villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Deirdre will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a wasp. Like all sisterly villagers, Deirdre is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Deirdre has a tendency to stay up very late at night. It is easy to get her picture since developing friendships with sisterly villagers is simple due to her caring and protective nature, sometimes talking to the player about her friendship with her old neighbor's son. Deirdre may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, lazy and normal villagers for how laid-back they are, and peppy villagers. However, she may conflict with smug and snooty villagers due to their arrogant nature. Deirdre may clash with cranky villagers due to their similarly stubborn personalities, but often end up becoming best friends.


In New Leaf, Deirdre's house is themed similar to that of a forest during autumn. Many of the furniture in her house consists of pieces from the Modern Wood Series, such as the bed, sofa and a shelf with a Vintage Radio on top. Deirdre originally has no stereo, but if given one, she will play K.K. Cruisin'. She has the Autumn Wall and the Birch Flooring as her choice of flooring and wallpaper.

In New Horizons, Deirdre has an interior very similar to Poppy's. She retains her autumn forest theme, but it is much more outdoorsy now, no longer having any typical indoors furniture like a regular bed or sofa. She has several items from the Mush series, including the lamp, table, log, and low stool, as well as the Tree's Bounty arch and mobile. She also has a yellow Cute Music Player, a Simple DIY Workbench, a hammock, and her wallpaper and flooring are the Autumn wall and Colored-leaves flooring, respectively.

In Happy Home Paradise, her love for fall is retained, and her theme is based on fall.
