Deirdre is a big sister deer villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Her name is of Irish origin and is a pun on her species.

In New Horizons, Deirdre has the play hobby and can run around with her arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.



Artwork of Deirdre from New Leaf.

Deirdre is a gray deer with brown hair. She has pink inner-ears and cheeks. Her lips are a white, and it appears as if she is wearing lipstick. The tips of her ears and her hooves are a darker brown.


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

Deirdre has a big sister personality; she will appear like a big sister towards the player. She will also have her rather humorous moments. Deirdre is fairly friendly but also likes to have a little bit of space. She is often inside her home or out shopping. She will quickly put on clothes designed by the player and give her photo. She makes friends with some townspeople easily but sometimes she will tease the more meek characters.
