An astute Animal Crossing: New Horizons player notices a little detail about Celeste after striking up a random conversation with her. Celeste remains one of the more mysterious characters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but this little-known discovery can help players understand the character’s mindset, even if it is just a small detail.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold over 40 million copies since its worldwide release on March 20, 2020. That’s a very large number of gamers living the good life on their own private islands. Despite the game being out for as long as it has and the number of people playing it, new details are still popping up, further expanding the lore of many of the island’s inhabitants and guests.

Reddit user EquinOxx discovered a small detail about the red owl Celeste that many Animal Crossing fans haven’t figured out. In the recent post, EquinOxx asked the Animal Crossing community if anyone ever noticed that Celeste will tell a story about any zodiac furniture that is presented to her. EquinOxx went on to explain that they discovered this by accidentally starting a conversation with her and saw the option for “show her something.” This is a common option for the other knowledgeable owl in the game, Blathers, but most people have never noticed the same option while talking to Celeste. EquinOxx then showed Celeste an Aquarius urn, where she then told a story about Zeus. In the posted image, it appears that Celeste may actually believe in Zeus herself.

Celeste is one of the more mysterious characters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, with players only knowing that she’s the younger sister of Blathers, the museum curator. Celeste will show up randomly on player’s islands at night whenever there are shooting stars in the sky. When players interact with her, she’ll give them DIY recipes for Zodiac-based items. According to EquinOxx, Celeste will only tell the player a story about zodiac-based furniture such as tables, chairs, and other decorative pieces, as she had nothing to say about the UFO or Rocket replicas that were shown to her.

In the comments for the post, some fans noted that Celeste will also tell stories about star fragments and other Zodiac-based fragments, while other fans had yet to learn that it was possible to show Celeste items at all. It’s truly amazing how many hidden details are still left to be found in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
