Gladys (Japanese name: ちとせ, Chitose) is a Normal Ostrich Villager who made her earliest appearance in Animal Forest e+[JPN], then later reappeared in both Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk.
Gladys is a very giving and affectionate Villager with quite the selfless mind, commonly found helping others in need, unintentionally appearing rather motherly and embarrassing in the process. After making friends with the Player, she will reveal that she is something of a neat freak when you first visit her home, one of her only outstanding traits related to her own person. Gladys enjoys partaking in the typical hobbies, particularly finding the art of gardening and floral art to be the most enjoyable. While this Villager is a generally caring and accepting individual, the strong uncleanliness of Snooty and Cranky residents immediately get to her, causing her to unfortunately internalize her negativity towards it. Another lighter pet peeve she harbors for these Villager types is the fact that they become selfish and unreasonable in their requests of her(which Gladys keeps as a part of her nature), such as putting up gossip about others making Gladys feel worried and upset.
Gladys is a black and white-coloured ostrich with a solid red spot on the top flat of her head. She has large, innocent eyes and a bright orange beak. While the bottom half of her head, neck, legs, and top side of her wings are black, the rest are coloured white.
