Biography

Wilkins arrived in California in the 1800s looking for gold. Instead, he found a place infested with demons, with whom he made a pact to avoid being killed. He agreed to found a town atop the Hellmouth for "demons to feed on" on the promise of an Ascension (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) (Enemies). It was revealed in the same episode that Richard Wilkins III was also Richard Wilkins I and II, pretending to be the son in each subsequent generation to conceal his lack of aging. This created a problem when Edna May, whom he married in 1903, began aging and probably contributed to his lack of romantic relationships later on (Choices). Mayor Wilkins seemed to have sold his soul early in his life (Lover's Walk) as one of his "campaign promises." Throughout Season 3, Mayor Wilkins worked to ensure his transformation into a pure-breed demon, an Old One.

Unlike many Buffy villains, Mayor Wilkins had quite a pleasant demeanor. A family man with an aversion to swearing, he nearly always wore a smile on his face. He is obsessed with cleanliness. After sending his henchmen after the Slayers in Consequences, Faith became a rogue Slayer and offered him her services. He soon became a father figure to Faith, their evil deeds notwithstanding. He even furnished her room, paid for with taxpayer money, with a PlayStation because he did not like to see her stay at a place with an "unsavory reputation," not to mention the screwing. This love for her even carried into his demonic form, although he did not have much to snack on to "sustain the change" as planned. It may be argued that he had not transformed completely.

After Mayor Wilkins achieved Ascension into the gigantic, snake-like pure-demon Olvikan during Sunnydale High's graduation ceremony in 1999, Buffy exploited his love for Faith by taunting him with the knife he had given to Faith and with which Buffy put Faith in a coma. Buffy lured him into the empty library, now filled with bags of dynamite. Rupert Giles then pressed the trigger that obliterated the Mayor and the school building.

Trivia

  • True to his avoidance of foul language, Mayor Wilkins's last words were "Well, gosh."
  • Mayor Wilkins loves the Family Circus cartoon strip, amused that P.J. is such a handful (Bad Girls), but dislikes Marmaduke, who being always on the desk seem unsanitary to him. He does not like Cathy.
  • In a deleted scene of the series premiere of Firefly, it is learned that the Alliance troops who advanced on the Independents in Serenity Valley were led by General Richard Wilkins. The characters are not related, as Firefly is not part of Whedon's Buffyverse.
