Name in other languages
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
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
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.
With the release of the 2.0 update, Cyrus and Reese can now have a shop open at the plaza on Harv's Island after donating 100,000 Bells. The player can have Cyrus customize an item that is not customizable under normal means. Cyrus is available until midnight.
Yello! This is Cyrus. Well, hey there, Player. What can I do ya for?
Your campsite? Wow, that sounds like that'd be just the thing.
Sorry. Can't. I got my hands full right at the moment. Thanks for the invite though! You take care.

RV in Welcome amiibo
While in their RV, Cyrus can say either one of the following dialogues:
- "Huh? Oh hi there, squirt! Fancy seeing you here. What am I doing here? Even furniture designers gotta take a vacation now and then! I invited my lovely wife to come along with me, but she stayed behind in to work. But what's the fun of doing all that work if you never get to play? Isn't that right, squirt?"
- "Oh! Good to see ya, squirt! It's kinda funny meeting you like this, isn't it? But, oh my! I just got to that point where my body was screaming out, "Gimme a break, will ya?!" And when my body asks for something, I listen! So don't go asking me for any furniture-design advice right now, OK? When I'm not at my workbench, I'm not at work!"
- "Oh yeah. Campin' out like this really gets my creative juices flowing again. I've got a feeling my best designs are ahead of me!"
- "Life on the road can give you all sorts of new perspectives... but it can get kinda lonely. Ah... What I wouldn't give for some of Reese's homemade right about now..."
- "I thought Reese would've liked to get out and see the sights! But I knew my wife was a workaholic when I married her!"
- "A car like this isn't really for getting somewhere fast... It's for enjoying the ride, no matter what your destination."
- "Oh, I can't wait to get home to Reese again... Just one more day... Whaa! Hey! You weren't supposed to hear that! When did you get here anyway, squirt?!"
