“Life-changing moments don't always happen on a schedule, teacup...”
― Tia, New Horizons
Tia (ティーナ,Tīna?) is a normalelephantvillager in the Animal Crossing series. Similar to how Tucker seems to be based on a mammoth, Tia seems to be based on a teapot. Her catchphrase supports this as well as her English name, which sounds similar to "tea". Her picture quote is a play on the famous saying "life is a cup of tea".
Tia is a white elephant who strongly resembles a teapot. In New Horizons, her textures were even changed to look more like a porcelain teapot, instead of other elephant villagers who have a fuzzy texture. She has black eyes with an eyelash on each and has a wavy, yellow, headband-like marking around her head, with a blue flower and a yellow ball at the very top of her head. She has two lighter blue flower markings on her cheeks as blush, and has possesses a cheery look with a smile. She has blue-tipped hands and feet, as well as a blue tail. The insides of her ears are blue and are lined with yellow, and the tip of her trunk is brown, resembling tea in a teapot's spout.
Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Tia 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. Tia may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Tia 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, Tia's house has no specific theme, but has somewhat of a kitchen-like style towards it, with many furniture primarily consisting of the Regal Series like the bed and the lamp. She has a sink and buffet, adding to the kitchen theme, a minimalist kitchen, a pine table with a tea set on it along with a plant and a Phonograph that plays K.K. Marathon. She has the Rococo Flooring and the Blue Wallpaper for her choice of flooring and wallpaper.
In New Horizons, Tia's house has a more specific café theme to it, with a small kitchen area in the east of the house and a table in the west. She has the café curtain wall, a yellow couch, chalkboard menu, and a lily phonograph that plays K.K. Bossa.
