Astrid (キッズ,Kizzu?) is a snootykangaroovillager first introduced in 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.
As a snooty villager, Astrid will appear uptown, classy, and chic. With this, however, she will appear rude, belittling, and snobbish when talking to the player or other villagers in the town, usually criticizing their dress sense or fashion. When talking to the player enough times, she will befriend them but still remain subtly rude. As with all snooty villagers, she has an interest in clothes over other hobbies. She will have problems socializing with other villagers, usually lazy villagers by disagreeing with their choice of lifestyle or getting offended by a jock villager, who has questioned her physical fitness.
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.
