Astrid (キッズ,Kizzu?) is a snootykangaroovillager first introduced in the Animal Crossing series. Her name is derived from astronomy, the study of stars. This ties in with the shirt she initially wears, and her appearance. Astrid was absent from Wild World but returned in City Folk. Her name in Japanese means "kids" which relates to her species as kangaroo as they carry their kid, called a joey, in their pouch.
Astrid is a white female kangaroo with green starburst pattern around her eyes. The insides of her ears are pink and she has a bright red nose. The end of her tail is green and she wears the Star Shirt. Like all female kangaroos, Astrid's joey mimics her appearance and emotions.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Astrid has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Astrid will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confining in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Astrid will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jockvillagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.
In Animal Crossing, Astrid's house theme is a mix of metal and regal. She has the steel flooring, rock guitar, and a regal bed & couch. She listens to The K. Funk on her stereo.
In City Folk, Astrid's house has the same wallpaper and flooring, but now has a television, green lava lamp, sea horse, rock guitar, and if she obtains a stereo, it will play I Love You.
In New Leaf, Astrid's house is completely redone. She has the Kiddie Flooring now, a crib, a TV set, and a Dice Stereo that plays I Love You.
