Hazel (アイリス, Iris?) is an uchi squirrel villager who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Her name comes from hazelnut, a type of nut. A certain villager already had the name of Hazel, but due to Nintendo of America's localization error, this villager was given the name of Hazel. That villager was then renamed to Sally due to, yet another localization error on Nintendo of America's part. Not only that, but the new name given, Sally, was already owned by another villager too. Her initial phrase may be a reference to her unibrow as she is saying uni-wow meaning she is proud of it.
Hazel's most distinct feature is her prominent unibrow, which resembles Lyman's unibrow. She has light pink cheeks, and her inner ears are bright blue. She has light brown fur, with a patch of red on the top of her head, resembling thick bangs. Her paws are also red. She has a darker brown color and white in a swirl on her tail. Her initial phrase references towards her unibrow. Her initial shirt is the Red Warmup Suit, and she carries the Sunny Parasol on rainy days.
Hazel is an uchi ("big sister") villager. She will have a tendency to be blunt with the player, teaching them how to "always win at fights" and ways to relax. She will also act like a caring big sister to the player once they become close friends. Hazel may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, and lazy villagers for how laid-back they are. However, she may conflict with snooty and cranky villagers, who spread rumors about others.
Hazel's house is very child-like. She has almost the entire Patchwork Series, and a big Papa Bear. She also has a hamster which she will sometimes talk about, as well as a CD Player playing K.K. Disco. She has the Modern Wood Wall, and the Birch Flooring.
