Arrietty is a 14 year old girl with auburn hair.

Often times, she wears a red dress whenever she is out borrowing, if she is not, she is seen in light brown blouse and a pale yellow dress. Since she is a borrower, she is very small (around 2 or 3 times taller than a pin in the film) and is hard to spot. 


Arrietty, according to the movie, is nearly 14 and is preparing for her first year of borrowing. She is very adventurous and likes exploring the garden and collecting different plants for decorating her room.


During the film Arrietty encounters humans, most importantly, Shawn. Since she is a borrower, this is considered to be extremely dangerous and avoided at all times. However, it turns out that Shawn and his family were aware of the borrowers. Shawn turns out to be kind hearted and desperate to help Arrietty, when Haru becomes determined to catch the borrowers.
