Heather is a timid Raposa who hardly speaks, and remains silent for most of the first game. Her most notable feature is that the left half of her face is covered in Shadow.

Heather was held captive by Frostwind in Drawn to Life, and kidnapped by Wilfre in Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter. She was taught to speak by Crazy Barks, and quickly learns from him.

Heather is a shy but adventurous Raposa who doesn't talk often. She tends to hide, and rarely socializes with the other Raposa in the villages throughout the series.

Drawn to Life

In the original game, Frostwind kidnapped Heather and locked her in a Shadow Cage. Later, he attacked the village forcing The Hero to fight him. The Hero rescued Heather, who was brought back to the village. Due to her large attraction to Jowee, The Mayor placed her under his watch. At the end of the game, Crazy Barks teaches her to talk like him.

Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter

Heather begins the game having a nightmare of Wilfre returning and draining the color from the village, however she awakens before this can complete. After venturing outside, she opens a treasure chest at the Hidden Beach. Inside, she finds a scepter, which activates and allows Wilfre to possess her, kicking off the game's narrative.

Heather's Pendant is left behind and Jowee takes it. Aboard the Turtle Rock it is revealed that the pendant can lead the Raposa to locations they don't know about. The crew use it in order to sail to new villages.

Real Life

Main article: Heather (In Real Life)

The end-game credits show Real Life with Mike where Heather is a primary figure. She was Mike's older sister who went to a fair with her family. On the way home, however, the car crashed and Mike fell into a coma.

Heather prayed to God for Mike to awaken, who did in the end. The two are seen hugging as they are watched by Mari and Jowee dolls that they may have won at the festival.

However, this was later changed due to a ratings complaint. In the Drawn to Life: Collection and later versions of Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter, Heather and Mike are shown to be camping and hunting fireflies. Mike tries to catch one of the fireflies in a tree and falls, becoming unconscious. As in the the original ending, Heather prays for her brother, Mike wakes up, and Jowee and Mari dolls are seen in the last frame of the credits.

Question.png Trivia

  • Heather was the one who drew the pictures at the beginning of the sequel.
    • This could imply that the real Heather is The Creator - the theory is a bit stretched, though not completely out of the question.
  • When Heather looks to the right of the screen, it shows her right side so it should not show the black side of her head, yet it still does. In The Next Chapter, this is corrected.
  • Although in Real Life, Heather is Mike's older sister, she is younger than him in the Raposa world.
  • The half of Heather's face that is covered in Shadow may represent the bandages that she is seen with in the original ending when Mike wakes from his coma.
    • Since this side of her face is healed after the final boss, this may imply Heather's face is healing in Real Life as well.
  • Throughout the second game Wilfre will sometimes show Heather who states "Kemi Kewa", which is an anagram for "Wake Mike".
  • During the events of the first game Heather is one of the only main characters to move around the village.
  • Her picture on the cover of The Art of 5th Cell is the wrong way around, with the Shadow on the right side of her face. This is because the cover art was facing to the right at first, and was then reversed to face left.
  • After Wilfre is defeated in the final battle of the sequel, when Heather is freed from Wilfre's possession, the Shadow on the right side of her face disappears, hence her "Shadowless" sprites.
  • She is one of the few Raposa to not have their idle sprite replaced in Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter.
  • It is believed that Heather might be designed after the Norse goddess Hel, as she also has a face that is half black, and is rescued in the snow world, representing her powers of ice. The first two letters of her name reinforce the idea. The boss, Frostwind, is thought to represent Jörmungandr, an offspring of Loki, as Hel is also an offspring.
    • However, her complete name implies that still she can have a different, warmer personality, this idea coming from the fact that she aids The Hero from the cold attacks of Frostwind, and giving thus some heart warming support to The Hero.
  • She is one of four characters to sing in the series. The others being Mari, Jowee and Rose.
  • According to a line of dialogue in Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii), Heather is unaware that half of her face is covered in Shadow.
    • It is unknown if this is true for the canon games.
  • In the Wii game, Heather carries what could either be a croquet racquet or a gavel. This object is never mentioned by any character in game, and it is unknown why she has it.
    • This object can be seen resting against the wall inside Mari's House
  • For some reason, Heather is called "heathers" in the files of Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii).
