Ida’s husband and a somewhat childish and irresponsible father. He’s a bit ‘flash’, cocky, unmindful of his husbandly duties and rather fond of the ladies. Drake is a sarcastic character. He is the stereotypical sitcom father, often shirking his husbandly/parental duties. Drake finds Ugly quite repulsive and isn’t afraid to say it to anyone, including his wife.
