"I'm Filbo Fiddlepie! I'm the, uh... mayor around here."

BefficaHappySticker.png Beffica - "Personality Type: Squeeb. Skills: None. Friends: None. Also he's a terrible leader."  

Filbo Fiddlepie is the mayor of Snaxburg on Snaktooth Island, second-in-command to Lizbert, but terrible at it.

Journal description

The self-appointed mayor. He seems to be trying his best.

Likes making friends, throwing parties, and having boundless optimism.

Interview notes

  • Followed Lizbert to the island out of blind loyalty.
  • Lizbert left him in charge while she was out hunting.
  • Wasn't able to stop the others from fighting.
  • Believes that I can put Snaxburg together again.

Personality

Filbo is optimistic, well-meaning but incredibly clumsy[1] and suffers from a low self-esteem in which he is quite a doormat; not a good set of flaws for a leader.

Filbo puts his faith entirely on the Journalist to bring the town back together, due to being good at stuff, unlike Filbo, and not hated yet, unlike Filbo.

Filbo is the first Grump The Journalist meets when they arrive on the island. He has collapsed from starvation and teaches the player about using the Snakscope and Snaktrap to capture their first Bugsnak. He then takes the player to Snaxburg, and explains that Elizabert left him in charge while on expeditions on the island. Since her disappearance, Filbo assumed the role of Mayor of Snaxburg, much to the dislike of most of the villagers.

When certain villagers return to Snaxburg, Filbo throws parties to celebrate. These are initially not well received by the other villagers, and arguments between them ensue. The third party seems to go far better, with all the villagers joining in with Filbo's dancing by the end. However, the volcano erupts and cuts the party short. Filbo goes with the player and Eggabell to find Elizabert inside the Frosted Peak, and attempts to convince her to leave Snaktooth Island with the other villagers. After this is unsuccessful, he ensures that the remainder of the villagers escape the island safely.

Filbo then asks to stay with the player for a while after returning to the mainland, which the player accepts. He acts as a witness to the events on Snaktooth Island, in order to give the player's article credibility. Additionally, he mentions that he will run for mayor of the town/city in the upcoming election, having gained confidence in his leadership abilities.
