Drake Jared Parker (born June 27, 1988) is portrayed as a simple, lucky, cool and popular teenager, putting little thought into his decisions. He also plays the guitar and sings in his own band, whose members vary between episodes, and which Josh later acts as the manager. He attends Belleview High School with Josh.
Drake and his stepbrother Josh are constantly tormented by his younger sister, Megan Parker. However, they never have a chance to show their parents what kind of things she does and often get punished because of her.
Drake was portrayed by Drake Bell.
Almost every character in the show sees Drake as a good-looking, popular and talented teenager (the exceptions are Mrs. Hayfer, Mindy Crenshaw and Sammy). He also has many girlfriends throughout the series, but according to him, "he doesn't like half of the girls he dates". Yet, Drake is sometimes shown to be a bit unintelligent, not bookish and rather disobedient.
Drake is somewhat selfish in some episodes (i.e. Pool Shark, Playing the Field) but in other ones he does care about other people, especially his brother Josh (i.e. Mindy's Back, Josh Runs into Oprah) and occasionally Megan, in the episode Megan's First Kiss. He also lies a lot, and does so without getting caught much.
Drake can be seen as rather arrogant, as he has a high view of himself and his abilities. He often refers to himself as "hot" and brags about his good looks and his skills like his music-playing abilities. He has a habit of taking advantage of people, and this is shown in Driver's License when Josh gets a ticket for passing a stop sign, Drake pays for it and completely blackmails Josh and has him do whatever Drake wants if Josh doesn't want him to tell their father about the ticket.Drake has great interest in music, playing an electric guitar in a band throughout the series and liking all forms, his favorite being rock. He can also play drums and percussion shown in one episode when he tried to play drums and guitar at the same time, and in another episode where he played the bongos. He usually takes advantage of Josh to get what he wants. He has a lot of success with girls and much of the comedy is his effortless ability to get dates. Drake is also very unhygienic (not washing hands, eating food off the floor).
At first, Drake was embarrassed about his new stepbrother, but later grew to accept Josh more. Despite his selfishness and laziness, Drake still remains a likable character and redeems himself by doing the right thing.
Relationship with other Characters
Hug me, brother!
In Pilot, Drake is unhappy about Josh living with him, as he finds him too dorky. But later in the episode, Drake befriends Josh and at last considers him a brother. In many episodes, Drake comments that Josh can be really annoying, and so does Drake. However, they help each other in most episodes of the series.
Drake seems not entirely close with Megan, as she is always pranking him and Josh. However, he acts protective to her in the episode "Megan's First Kiss". Megan always calls her brothers "boobs" and loves torturing them.
Drake has a good connection with his mother. Audrey sometimes acts protective towards him and Josh.
