Vesta is a normal sheep villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. Her catchphrase, baaaffo is a play on baa, onomatopoeia for a sound sheep make.

In New Horizons, Vesta has the fashion hobby and may be seen wearing a pink purse with a white flower on it, as well as a specific headwear or accessory item.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Vesta from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Vesta is a sheep with a dark blue face with white features to match her blonde wool. Her horns are yellow and orange.

Personality[edit]

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

As a normal villager, Vesta will appear friendly and hospitable towards the player and other villagers. Like other normal villagers, she will have an unseen obsession with hygiene and cleanliness, which she mentions when the player visits her in her home. Other than her hygiene interests, she will appear neutral and open-minded when discussing hobbies, such as gardening, bug catching, fishing and so on. Like other villagers, she will, from time to time, ask the player for favors feeling sorry for having to ask for help, but appearing very gracious once the task has been complete. She will get along easily with other villagers, but may conflict with lazy villagers when they talk about food and leading her on to suggesting making them dinner or lunch for them.
