First Mayor of Nod's Limbs
"High Wire" (flashback, mentioned only)
"Nod's Limbs" (mentioned only)
Thaddeus Knightleigh was the first mayor of Nod's Limbs and a rival of Augustus Nod. The owner of the local tavern, Thaddeus possessed a gregarious personality and a free-flowing tap that made him a very popular man.
When Augustus Nod showed no interest in running Nod's Limbs, the people elected the more popular and sociable tavern owner, as the first mayor of Nod's Limbs, and a Knightleigh has served as mayor ever since.
The Mayor Thaddeus Knightleigh ordered the construction of many notable buildings, such as a large town hall where citizens gathered to hear him speak, a theater, the Clock Tower, and seven covered bridges.
To his dismay, Thaddeus Knightleigh could never persuade the townspeople to rename Nod's Limbs "Knightleighville", because the citizens felt obliged to show some respect to the man who paid their salaries.
