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 a 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.
According to the movie, Arrietty is nearly 14 and is preparing for her first year of borrowing. She is very adventurous and likes exploring the garden. She collects different plants to decorate her room.
During the film Arrietty encounters humans, most importantly, Sho. Since she is a borrower, this is considered to be extremely dangerous and is supposed to be avoided at all times. However, it turns out that Sho and his family were aware of the borrowers. Sho turns out to be kind hearted and desperate to help Arrietty, when Haru becomes determined to catch the borrowers.
Arrietty was portrayed by Mirai Shida as Kayo Horikoshi in The Wind Rises. In the 2011 Studio Canal dub, she is portrayed by Irish actor Saoirse Ronan. In the 2012 Disney dub, she is voiced by Bridgit Mendler.
