Hazel (アイリス, Iris) is an uchi squirrel villager 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.
Hazel's most distinct feature is her prominent unibrow, which is one of the things that make her resemble Lyman. 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 light pink cheeks and her inner ears are bright blue. Her initial phrase references towards her unibrow.
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 has K.K. Disco playing on her CD Player. She also has a hamster, which she will talk about occasionally during conversations. She has a few peices of the Patchwork furniture set, along with a Papa bear and a retro fridge.
