Mayor is the position as the head of a village in the Drawn to Life series. Each village in the Raposa world has a Mayor. The system in Drawn to Life seems to be that of a monarchy, as the position is passed down to successors through the bloodline.

Rapoville[edit]

In the Rapoville, there have been two known Mayors: The Mayor and his daughter, Mari. According to The Mayor, their family has held the position for seven generations, with Mari later being the eighth. The Mayor of this village is the keeper of the Book of Life, and each Mayor has signed their name in it. Each Mayor also, near the end of their life, must write down the history of their village during their time in an old diary, known as the Mayor's Book.

Watersong[edit]

In Watersong the only known Mayor is Rose. At the end of their reign, the mayor has to transfer the power of song to their successor, a process that kills them shortly after. The Mayor status in Watersong is even more so like royalty than in the other villages, because the Mayor there lives in a grand mansion and has servants.

Lavasteam[edit]

In Lavasteam, there has been one known Mayor, Miney. Very little is known about the Mayor's role in Lavasteam because during Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter it was replaced with a dictatorship, or absolute monarchy, and that happened to be the time of The Hero's visit. Though Miney said he'll give up being king this was proved to be a lie since he still call himself king, though he could have still reverted Lavasteam back to a mayor based society, and he only calls himself King because he likes the sound of it.

Galactic Jungle[edit]

In the Galactic Jungle, there has been only one named Mayor, Click. Little is known about the position, because like Lavasteam, the governing system was temporarily changed to a puppet Oligarchy, in actuality, a dictatorship, though some history points out it was once run like the other villages. For example, Click said their previous mayor died without an heir, revealing that the position was passed through bloodline there as well. Later, the villagers elected Click as Mayor. Click is the first Mayor known to acquire his position through an election. Elections are presumably held every four years, as Click runs for re-election during Two Realms.

Belleview[edit]

Although not explicitly stated, it can be assumed that Reginald Freeman is the Mayor of Belleview, as he declares "Ice Cream Sunday" a town-wide holiday, and can always be found outside Town Hall.

Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii)[edit]

Jangala[edit]

In Jangala, there is no real Mayor, but the Monkey King takes the role of the ruler of Jangala. He is not seen to be very responsible, as he lets his constituents run amok in Rapoville, stealing Banya and causing general mischief. He also doesn't seem to care when the Hero defeats his constituents either, as it is never brought up in the game. Although he is known for these things, as well as kidnapping Zsasha, the Raposa seem to harbor no ill will against him, as they keep their peace pact up with him.

Trivia[edit]

  • The position is incorrectly named "Mayor", as that implies someone that was elected. Instead, most of the governments work in a more monarchy-like style, with the position being inherited.
    • One exception to this rule is Galactic Jungle, as it works more like a democracy than a monarchy.
    • It is currently unknown what would happen if there is more than one heir to the Mayor.
      • It is possible that the eldest son is the heir to the village, and if there is none, it goes down the line of succession, much like a real world monarchy.
