Deputy Snyder is a human featured in Drawn to Life: Two Realms. He is a Belleview resident and the main sheriff for the town. He was one of the parties involved in Mike's crash, and he has lived with survivor's guilt ever since. He is one of the many residents of Belleview to be influenced by Aldark's Shadow.
Deputy Snyder is an adult human with black hair, dark skin and a black horseshoe moustache. His uniform is made up of a brown dress uniform with two pockets, a pair of black dress pants, and a wide-brimmed sheriff's hat with a brown stripe. He also has a golden badge pinned onto his hat.
Four years before the events of Drawn to Life: Two Realms, Deputy Snyder decided to go visit the carnival in town. On his way there, it began to rain, and the road he was on became slick. Suddenly, Mike's father, Mr. Row, appears driving down the road with his family, so Deputy Snyder and Mr. Row swerve out of the way to avoid colliding. This resulted in Mr. Row's car flipping, resulting in Mike's parent's deaths, putting Mike in a coma, and severely injuring Heather.
Some time later, a police officer who may be Deputy Snyder is asking a recovering Heather about the night of the incident. Suddenly, Mike wakes from his coma, pulling Heather's attention way from the officer while he alerts a nurse, possibly Dr. Curie.
By the time Drawn to Life: Two Realms begins, Deputy Snyder had been influenced by Aldark's Shadow, bringing out the worst of his survivor's guilt. He is first mentioned to the Hero after Heather tells them about the accident. Aly says that he failed at protecting the village, and that she'd never forgive him, but after the Hero clears the shadow from her mind, she forgets about the situation.
Later on, after Mike escapes to Rapoville and the Hero returns him, Mike decides to confront Deputy Snyder in front of the entire village. Mike blames him for the death of his parents, and Snyder explains how he hasn't felt peace since the accident, not expecting forgiveness from anyone. The Hero enters his and Mike's minds, clearing Aldark's Shadows from both of them, and the two apologize, forgiving each other.
Deputy Snyder's Imagination Battle in Drawn to Life: Two Realms is named Deputy of Despair. It is the twenty-fifth story level in the game, and has three segments. After Mike returns to Belleview from Rapoville, he confronts Deputy Snyder in front of many villagers. Mike yells at him for killing his parents, and Deputy Snyder shouts back, telling Mike about his sleepless nights and how he doesn't expect anyone to forgive him. The Hero steps in and resolves Snyder's internal conflict, sending Mike into a blind rage.
In Build Mode, the player is given two SwordFishers, a Hootlamp, and a Wind Doot. One possible solution is for the player to place one SwordFisher by the green button, the other on the block above the blue gate, the Hootlamp under the square above the second SwordFisher, and the Wind Doot in the divot on the top-right of the map.
- It is likely that Deputy Snyder is the police officer who asked Heather questions while she was in the hospital with Mike. However, this has yet to be confirmed.
- According to Joseph Tringali, Deputy Snyder drives a 1970 Buick Electra.
- In some files and documentation for Drawn to Life: Two Realms, Deputy Snyder is referred to as "Deputy Hopper".
