Sylvana (もんぺMonpe?) is a normalsquirrelvillager who originally appeared in Animal Forest e+ via moving in with an eReader card only. She's absent only in Wild World or future games. However, she's been found in the data for Happy Home Designer. Sylvana's name is of Latin origin, meaning 'of the forest', which is a possible reference to her species, as squirrels live in wooded habitats. She used to be on the cover for K.K. Rally and she has the nature hobby.
Sylvana returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.
Sylvana is a squirrel with a white and brown body which resembles a ferret. She initially wears a kiwi shirt. Her ears are brown with purple inside and her tail is brown with a white swirl. Her face has the appearance of a ferret's. The tips of her paws are a shade of brown, a bit darker then her arms and tail, and the tips of her ears are also darker. Her eyelids appear to be yellow.
Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Sylvana has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along well with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. Sylvana may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Sylvana will usually wake up at 6:00 am and is easier to befriend than most. Both normal and peppy villagers reference an unseen friend known as Moppina.
In New Leaf, Sylvana's house resembles a kitchen, as it has a kitchen island and multiple food items. She does not have a stereo, but if she acquires one, it will play Spring Blossoms.
In New Horizons, Sylvana's house has a picnic theme, featuring most of the items from the cherry blossom series. She has the Cherry-blossom-trees wall and flooring, a Cherry-blossom pond stone, three Blossom-viewing lanterns, one of which is customized to be the Light Wood variant, and a Cherry-blossom-petal pile and Branches. In the center of the room are two Colorful vinyl sheets forming a picnic blanket, sitting on top of them are an Outdoor picnic set, a green Picnic basket, and a Bamboo Lunch Box. Unlike in New Leaf, she has a pink Cassette player in her room by default.
