“What do you do when you have to wash your clothes!? Do you stay inside all day!?”
― Sylvia, Animal Forest e+
Sylvia (シルビア,Shirubia?) is an uchikangaroovillager from the Animal Crossing series. She originally appeared in Animal Forest e+ as a snooty villager. Sylvia was absent from Wild World and City Folk, but she came back to the series in New Leaf as an uchi villager. Her catchphrase comes from the joey that kangaroos carry in their pouches. Her picture quote comes from the jumping ability that kangaroos possess.
Sylvia is a purple kangaroo with small pink cheeks. She has a black nose with a white tip. Sylvia also has orange hair that covers up half of her eyes. The insides of her ears are deep blue, and the tips of her limbs are white. She initially wears the Yellow Aloha Tee, and carries the Flame Umbrella on rainy days.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Sylvia has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Sylvia will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confining in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Sylvia will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jockvillagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.
Below is a brief description of the uchi personality. For more information, click here.
Sylvia is an uchi ("big sister") villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Sylvia will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a bee. Like all uchi villagers Sylvia is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Sylvia has a tendency to stay up very late at night. It is easy to get her picture since developing friendships with uchi villagers is simple due to her caring and protective nature.
Sylvia will treat the player with respect and will even offer to fight off anyone giving the player trouble. Sylvia may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, lazy villagers for how laid-back they are, and peppy villagers. However, she may conflict with snooty and cranky villagers, who spread rumors about others, and she may have trouble getting along with normal villagers.
In New Leaf, Sylvia's house has a modern theme. She has four items from the Modern Series, being the bed, the sofa, the cabinet, and the table which displays a pop-up book and a poinsettia. She also owns a small magazine rack, and a cradle, referencing her joey. She also owns a cassette player that plays Rockin' K.K. Sylvia's wallpaper is the Sleek Wall, and her flooring is the Ceramic Tile.
