― Hazel, talking to the player about her childhood, New Leaf

Hazel (アイリス, Airisu?, Iris) is a sisterly squirrel villager who first appeared in New Leaf. A different squirrel villager originally had the name of Hazel, but due to Nintendo of America's localization error, she was renamed Sally. Another villager originally named Sally was then renamed Cally.

Hazel's name comes from hazelnut, a type of nut. Her initial phrase is a reference to her uni-brow, hinting that she is proud of it. She has the play hobby.


Hazel's most distinct feature is her prominent unibrow, which resembles Lyman's unibrow. Her fur is a light brown, almost peach color, and she has a red bob haircut. Her eyes are small, with one tiny eyelash poking out of each one. In addition, Hazel has pink cheeks and buck teeth. Her inner ears are teal, while the tips of her paws are red. Hazel initially wears the Red Warmup Suit, and carries the Sunny Parasol on rainy days.


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

Hazel is a sisterly villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Hazel will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a wasp. Like all sisterly villagers, Hazel is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Hazel 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. Hazel 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. Hazel may clash with cranky villagers due to their similarly stubborn personalities, but often end up becoming best friends.


In New Leaf, Hazel's house is very child-like, featuring almost the entire Patchwork Set, as well as a papa bear. She also owns a cushion, a hamster cage and a CD Player that plays K.K. Disco. Her wallpaper is the Modern Wood Wall, and her flooring is the Birch Flooring.

In New Horizons, Hazel has a sports-themed home, with a basketball hoop, ball, and two tennis tables. She also has a folding chair, champion's pennant, wall clock, and a tape deck that plays DJ K.K.. Her wallpaper is the dojo wall and her flooring is the wooden-knot flooring.
