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, while another villager already owned that name. 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.
Below is a brief description of the uchi personality. For more information, click here.
Hazel is a uchi ("big sister") villager. She has a tendency to be blunt with the player, teaching them how to "always win at fights" and various ways to de-stress. Once befriended, she will act like a caring big sister to the player. If the player is stung by bees, for example, Hazel will at first demand to see "who did this to [them]," believing that the player was injured by another villager. However, she will realize that the wound is a bee sting, and may give the player medicine.
Hazel may conflict with Snooty and Cranky villagers, who spread rumors about others. However, she may also befriend these villagers, particularly Cranky ones, as they will occasionally discuss similar topics and banter over who looks more intimidating.
Despite all of this, Hazel is very caring. She is often awake very late at night, but, as a result, tends to sleep in during the day.
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.
- According to the Animal Crossing: New Leaf: Prima Official Game Guide, Hazel's special skill is "making budgets." Her future goal is to be a dentist. Her favorite style is the Iconic style.
