She was raised by mice so even though she is naturally a robin she has developed mouse ears.
She wants to be as sneaky as a mouse, as she got raised by them, but finds it difficult as she's a robin not a mouse. When she gets the Christmas star she wishes to be a proper mouse but that wish sadly doesn't come true.
