― Picture quote, Wild World
Gladys (ちとせ, Chitose?) is a normal ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name is based around her personality; a neutral name that is unlike the other personality type villagers, which all have names relating to their species and character. Her initial phrase, "stretch," is a play on her species, which are known to have long necks. Her picture quote sometimes makes players mistake her to have a snooty personality. She first appeared as a new character in Animal Forest e+, a Japan only game, and was brought back to Wild World, City Folk and New Leaf.



Gladys from Animal Forest e+.

Gladys is a female ostrich with large black eyes. She has a patch of red on the top of her head. The upper part of her face, her wings, her abdomen, and the upper part of her legs are white, while the lower part of her face and legs are gray. Her initial shirt is the misty shirt. Her appearance seems to be based on the Red-crowned Crane. In Animal Forest e+, her eyelashes are slightly shorter than in the later games.


Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Gladys has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. She may conflict with cranky and uchi villagers. As a normal villager, Gladys 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.


Gladys' house in Animal Forest e+ has a Japanese feel to it. She has many Exotic items, such as the bench, the bureau, the table, the chest, and the screen. Gladys also has three gyroids, and a pet bird. She has no stereo at first, but if she is given one, it will play K.K. Folk. Her floor is the Tatami, and her wallpaper is the Modern Screen.

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Animal Crossing: City Folk, Gladys' house still has a very Japanese feel. She still has all her previous Exotic items, plus the bed, as well as more bonsai. She also has a Phonograph that plays K.K. Folk. Her flooring is still the Tatami, but her wallpaper has changed to the Shoji Screen.

Gladys' house in Animal Crossing: New Leaf still has a Japanese feel, but it has changed a bit from the past games. She now has less Exotic items, since the only one she has left is the Exotic Screen. Instead, she now has other Japanese items, such as the paper lantern, the biwa lute, and the Tokonoma. She displays a bonsai, and a phonograph playing K.K. Folk on top of her Glass Top Table. Her flooring is once again the Tatami, but her wallpaper has changed to the Tearoom Wall.
