Fred was a small being who worked as a gadget engineer aboard the Blarg Tactical Research Station for Drek. He was attacked by alien swarmers when a colleague left their cages open, but was saved by Ratchet and Clank, to whom he promptly sold his newly-invented Grindboots before fleeing the station. Ratchet and Clank later encountered Fred in the sewers of the Jowai Resort on Pokitaru, where he was looking for Raritanium to power his Persuader, which he eventually gave to Ratchet in exchange for some Raritanium from planet Hoven. Two years later, during the events of Up Your Arsenal, Fred participated as a contestant at an Annihilation Nation death course, where he was obliterated by a red laser merely seconds after beginning the challenge.
