- — Cranston, while camping in the igloo, Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Cranston (トキオ, Tokio) is a ostrich villager who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Cranston, along with Phil, Flora, Phoebe and Blanche, are the five new ostrich characters in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Interestingly enough, his initial catchphrase would make more sense if he had been a jock villager, thus suggesting it's possible that he was initially intended to be a jock, but was changed to lazy at some point, or that his catchphrase may have been switched with another villager by mistake. His Japanese name refers to the Ibis, a bird found in Japan.
Cranston is white with an orange mask around his yellow eyes and a black beak. He also has pinkish orange feet and his tail consists of white feathers graduating to peach. Initially he wears the Lotus Tee. Although technically an ostrich, he does resemble a crane or ibis in some aspects, similar to how Flora resembles a flamingo and Blanche resembles a swan.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Cranston will be easy to get along with due to his laid-back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he shares a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, for either relaxing reasons or food. Cranston will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness.
Cranston has the Daisy Meadow carpet and the Sky Wall wallpaper. He has a pineapple bed, a clothes rack, a white stereo, a fire hydrant, a picnic table, a fish, and three baby-sized cribs. This relates to the fact that Cranston looks like a stork, and storks were believed to deliver babies.
