|This article is about Thomas, a character from Harvest Moon DS. You may be looking for Thomas in his other appearances in the series.|
Thomas is the mayor of Mineral Town and plays many roles that will help the player. Since losing a game of "rock-paper-scissors," he is responsible for picking up the items put into your shipping bin each day. He will stop by your farm every day at 4:30 PM and stays until 5:30 PM to collect the items in the shipping bin. Thomas does not work on holidays or collect items on rainy days.
As well as collecting the items you ship, Thomas is also in charge of delivering items purchased from the TV Shopping Channel. He gives you a Dog Ball at the beginning of the game, and will return it to you if you lose it.
On Winter 25, while you're sleeping he will come into your house. He will give you a gift if you have a stocking from Nina. He will attend festivals in the valley as well. He spends time in the valley on Sundays, and can be found near Romana's mansion.
He also acts as a priest and will perform the marriage ceremony for the player and any of the rival couples.
