Sterling is a jock eagle villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name is a grade of silver, which fits in with his silver helmet.

Sterling is established to work together with Knox in Knox's profile on the official Japanese website for Animal Crossing: City Folk.[1] Additionally, Sterling and Knox's New Horizons photos are counterparts to each other, containing mirrored poses both displayed against a Rustic-Stone Wall. Their relationship is hinted at with their similar Japanese names being counterparts to each other.

In New Horizons, Sterling has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Sterling from City Folk.

Sterling wears a knight helmet. He is a blue eagle with a red, orange, and yellow beak, making him more closely resemble a toucan, rather than an eagle. He also has an appearance similar to Knox, due to having a knight-like outfit. He is one of the few villagers to wear headgear.

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Sterling is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due to their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Sterling goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
