― Sterling, City Folk
Sterling (ギンカク, Ginkaku?) is a jock eagle villager from the Animal Crossing series. He made his debut to the series in City Folk. Sterling's name comes from "sterling silver" in reference to his metal helmet. His catchphrase is a play on the sound that some birds of prey make. He wears a helmet like Knox's.


Sterling wears a silver knight helmet and silver greaves. He is a blue and red eagle with a yellow beak. He initially wears the scale armor suit. He's similar in appearance to Knox, the cranky chicken due to having a knight-like outfit. He is one of the few villagers to wear headgear and shoes.


Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Sterling has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated but often come across as egotistical and dense. As a jock villager, Sterling is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and uchi villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Sterling.


His house has a Japanese theme, with a deer scare and a birdhouse. If Sterling has a stereo, it will play King K.K.
In New Leaf, Sterling's house instead has a more medieval theme. His room is decorated with a Library Wall and a Palace Floor. His furniture includes two pieces from the Gorgeous Series: the Table and the Sofa, along with two sets of Plate Armor and two Rooks. His phonograph now plays Lucky K.K..
