“And why are we still doing it? I mean, that's so two decades ago! And isn't 6:00am, like, way early?”
― Leigh, complaining about Morning Aerobics, Animal Crossing
Leigh (ディアナ,Dhiana?, Diana) is a peppychickenvillager from the Animal Crossing series. Her name may be a pun on the word "lay", which is the word used when a hen lays her eggs, but Leigh is also a real life female name (feminine version of Lee). So far her only appearances are in the earlier Animal Crossing games.
Leigh is an orange chicken with blue tipped feathers, a red beak, and maroon feet. She has oval-shaped, black eyes, each with a single eyelash. There are also two horizontal red stripes beneath each of her eyes, resembling Native American war paint. She wears a red and teal patterned headband, which, paired with her red crest, slightly resemble a Native American headdress. She initially wears a Puzzling Shirt.
Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.
Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Leigh will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects, and will usually be over-excited to see the player or other villagers. This villager, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. Peppy villagers dream of becoming famous in the future and read Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty, normal, and other peppy villagers in the Animal Crossing Series. Peppy villagers will also have a very short attention span, which means they soon forget some arguments or tasks given to the player which weren't completed. Leigh may easily get upset in conversation when the wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly lazy, normal, jock, sisterly and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ to hers. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.
It's hard being the busy chick in town. Leigh is always out with friends, shopping for furniture or looking for Gracie. She spends so much time thinking about these activities, she has little brain space left for remembering anything.
