Animal Crossing New Horizons New Villagers

1. Brewster - Museum Coffee Saler

The coffee-brewing pigeon Brewster is a character who serves coffee to players and villagers in The Roost all hours of the day in the lower floor of the museum or in his own shop. Brewster will arrive in the museum this fall update in September. Now the upper floor previously was blocked off and that unlocked once Red's art gallery was opened up, so Brewster would most likely be off one of these side halls or down below there is a staircase in the one of the rooms down there. 

2. Katrina - Fortune Teller

Katrina is the one of the most interesting and unique character in in every single installment of the Animal Crossing franchise from the Japan exclusive Animal Forest to spin-off games like Happy Home Designer and Pocket Camp. She is a fortune teller that comes to the villager's town in order to read their future and tell the player the kind of luck they'll be having and, if necessary, how to improve that luck. It is rumored that Katrina will be back to the game in the fall update.
