| Spoiler warning!|
This article contains spoilers about part of Gravity Rush.
Gravity Rush Edit
D'nelica first appears in Gravity Rush during the mayoral election, when the press mention that he is running against Mayor Bolsey, who is seeking another term in office.
His main strategy is to portray Bolsey as a weak and ineffectual leader, using his lack of success against fighting the Nevi, and allowing the city to be pulled into the Gravity Storms.
When Kat returns from Boutoume, she realizes that D'nelica has won the election and turned Hekseville into a repressive military state, where even students have to train for combat. Unbeknownst to her, D'nelica also desires to imprison Kat, believing her to be a threat to him.
He orders Yunica to fight Kat and get rid of her following the launch of the Sea Anemone while he watches from Neu Hiraleon. When the Anemone malfunctions, he holds off on attempting to destroy it and when he finally does activate the self-destruct sequence, he seems unconcerned that it will destroy a large portion of the city.
He is hit by the explosion of the Sea Anemone when Kat throws it back in his face, but is only hospitalized. It is then shown that his actions were due to the fact that he obtained the orb with the warning from Queen Alua about the end of the world, and he planned to eventually evacuate Hekseville to Eto after the population was reduced.
Gravity Rush 2 Edit
He does not appear personally in Gravity Rush 2, but it is shown that he is the leader of the Rebels.
He is a cruel and ruthless strongman, willing to kill any number of people to further his objectives. He is also cunning, using science and technology to further his goals, though he does not have a genius level intellect like Dr. Brahman.
It is unknown D'nelica had anything to do with Bolsey's mysterious disappearance before Kat's journey to the bottom of the world. Though it is believed that he offed the previous mayor behind the scenes, it is never explained what exactly happened.
When Raven is first introduced, she may have been talking to him. D'nelica had made a deal with Raven that he would send out a rescue squad to find a group of children that went missing, so long as she keeps the lost parts of Hekseville hidden in the rift planes. It is only with Kat's help in saving them that Raven really starts to question D'nelica's motives.
D'nelica's aide of sorts. Though he painted himself as a scientist under stress, Adreaux was actually under D'nelica's orders to gather data on Kat. The new mayor wanted to harness her powers (or, more specifically, Dusty's) to create an anti-Nevi super weapon, and ordered his aide to gather the necessary data.
Not much is known about the relationship between D'nelica and Yunica. The two never interact with each other at any point, though it is possible that he was somewhat involved to a very minor degree in her creation. He does order her to arrest Kat after the Sea Anemone is launched.

- It's possible that his disregard for the fact that the Sea Anemone would destroy Vendecentre when it exploded was not due to mere callousness, as it seems in Gravity Rush, but pragmatism, as it would make it easier to evacuate the city due to the amount of people that died.
