Vesta is a normal sheep in the Animal Crossing series that has appeared in every Animal Crossing game to date. Her name is a play on the word vest, an item of clothing sometimes made out of the wool of sheep, her species, and 'Vesta', the Roman goddess of hearth, home and fire (Greek equivalent to Hestia). Her initial phrase, baaaffo is a play on the word baa, the sound sheep make.


Vesta in Animal Crossing.


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


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.
