In New Horizons, Pate has the fashion hobby and may be seen wearing a pink purse with a white flower on it, as well as a specific headwear or accessory item.




Pate is a duck with blue-gray, colored feathers, who wears pink blush on her cheeks, has short, brown hair, has anxious-looking eyebrows, causing her to seem somewhat distressed or confused, and sticking with the common peppy trait, 'cute', beady eyes. Much to some players' confusion, Pate is actually a female duck.


Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.

Pate is a peppy villager, meaning she is filled with endless spirit and loves to participate. She can be seen walking out and about, even on those rainy days. Pate believes the glass is half full and not half empty, she is an optimistic, peppy villager that is a lot of fun. However, she can be sort of quick to put words in the player's mouth, especially when concerning her current hobby. If players have been ignoring her, she will give them a dirty look when they wave to her. Despite this, Pate can be a somewhat good friend when players learn to cope with her selfish ways. She can become open and does not hesitate in sharing gifts with friends. She can also be a little hard headed and selfish, but Pate can be very caring and loving.

Pate's perpetual frowny face is a bit misleading. Once she opens her mouth, it's like an onslaught of excitement and cheer. Always prepare yourself before engaging.
