Tia is a normal elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. The first syllable of her name is pronounced the same as "tea." Her name, her catchphrase, "teacup," and her favorite saying refer to the teapot-like appearance of her head.

In New Horizons, Tia has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item she is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Tia from New Leaf.

Appearance[edit]

Tia is a white elephant with blue tips on her hands, feet, and tail. She has a blue flower marking on each side of her face and one on each of her ears, which are rimmed by yellow. She wears a yellow wavy headband, and she has a yellow ball on top of her head, resembling the lid of a teapot. She has black eyes and wears blue mascara. She has pale pink lipstick on her lips. The end of her nose is slightly skinnier than the other elephants villagers' noses, and the tip of her nose is colored to resemble that of a hollow teapot spout. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the texture of her skin resembles porcelain and lacks the fur texture typical of all other elephant villagers. Tia and Chai are both elephant villagers based on teaware.

Personality[edit]

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

Tia has a normal personality, so she will act shy, but caring toward the player. She will get along well with villagers of any personality type. She will have hygiene concerns, represented when the player visits her house, and she will state her embarrassment at the supposedly unclean appearance of her home. She will mention her interest in reading and the various books she reads. She also will enjoy writing and receiving letters.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Tia is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, her house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Wooden Series. She cannot have her initial house interior unless she moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
