Cyrus is a blue alpaca in the Animal Crossing series who first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. In New Leaf he works at Re-Tail, and in Animal Crossing: New Horizons he is part of the Wedding Season event. He often appears alongside his wife, Reese.


In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Cyrus works at Re-Tail alongside Reese and can customize furniture for the player if given ore. He can also create furniture such as the Golden Series and Music Box if given the necessary materials. For the mayor's first seven days in town, Cyrus will be asleep at his desk, unavailable. According to Reese, Cyrus worked on a project all night and is "extremely tired." After at least seven days have passed, Cyrus will wake up and his customization services will be available as long as the player has sold 100,000 Bells worth of items and has 100 pieces of furniture and 50 pieces of clothing in their catalog.

Customized items will be shown in the player's inventory as red or orange leaves instead of green. Orange leaves are items which have been customized using the player's designs and cannot be dropped by the player.

When the player activates multiplayer by opening the town's gates, Cyrus will be sleeping and his services are not available.

In New Horizons[edit]

While initially absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Cyrus was introduced in the 1.2.0 April Free Update alongside Reese and the Wedding Season event. He appears in the aforementioned event alongside Reese on Harv's Island and will give the player items from the Wedding Series in exchange for Heart Crystals after each photo shoot. Additionally, after the final photo shoot is completed, Cyrus rewards the player with the DIY recipe for the Wedding Wand.

Cyrus's Poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after inviting him to Photopia via his amiibo. Additionally, Cyrus appears on the Reese & Cyrus Photo Plate and the Reese & Cyrus customization of the Wedding Welcome Board, which are both available during Wedding Season.

In Pocket Camp[edit]

Reese & Cyrus

Description NTSC-U: From their names, you might guess they're a pair of country singers, but actually they run Re-Tail. Reese sells all kinds of secondhand goods, and Cyrus customizes furniture. They may not be singers, but these exuberant alpacas work together in perfect harmony.

PAL: Their names make them sound like a pair of country singers, but they're actually the proprietors of Re-Tail. Reese deals in second-hand goods, while her husband, Cyrus, customises furniture. They might not do much singing together, but there's definitely harmony between these alpacas.
