Important Questions and Answers:

Who is Mayor Lewis?

Mayor Lewis is the mayor of Pelican town, so he is quite an important character in the game. He has been mayor for over 20 years. If you are new to the game, you would have noticed him telling you about what farm life is like. You may have also noticed his name when you receive letters about festivals in your mailbox. Moreover, his birthday is the 7th day of spring, so be sure to check out the ‘Recipes’ section if you want to know what to give him so that you can build a better friendship.

What are his Relationships like?

As Lewis has been the mayor of Pelican Town for a long time, he has good relationships with all of the characters in the game. Furthermore, he has connections to your character’s grandfather. This is known due to him honoring an extra drink to your character’s grandfather when you speak to him at The Stardrop Saloon. That’s very thoughtful of him.

Lewis does not have a family but is considered to be a close friend of Marnie’s. If you have completed the Mayor’s Shorts story quest, you may already know this as his brown suspenders and shorts are found in her bedroom. Suspicious, right? However, he has not confirmed of being in a relationship with Marnie even though they have a 6-heart event. I guess he doesn’t want anyone to know, so pretend you didn’t read this. 

Lastly, as Lewis is part of the Agricultural Fund, you may have noticed him sending you money in the letterbox if you are a new player. You also have a chance of receiving gold from him if you build a friendship with him. Very kind of him, am I right?
