Before meeting Talia, Frederick lived in Animalville. He went to a beginner's shapeshifting class where he was taught how to turn into a chicken. Frederick has a brother who is a talking toad.
Joining Talia's PartyEdit
Frederick joined Talia's party to save his brother, who had been captured by the circus... again.
The player can choose to keep Frederick in the party after rescuing his brother, and Frederick can learn to shapeshift into a variety of other creatures while travelling with Talia. These different forms can be very helpful in defeating Ahriman.
When Frederick has not shapeshifted into something else, he is a giant green lizard with darker green spots. He stands taller than Devin, and wears a cape.
In Frederick's normal form (lizard), he can only equip one weapon, the Animal Sword.
Devin demonstrates that he cares for Frederick when he refuses to let the lizard sacrifice himself to the Succubus
Frederick can shapeshit into different creatures, although he needs to meet or fight certain creatures so that he can learn new transformations.
