Fred Nerk is the first Australian dragon. He protects magical creatures living within Sydney, Australia.[1]

HistoryEdit

Fred Nerk was the first Australian dragon, and thus received much attention when he first attended the Isle of Draco. However the next year, Jake Long, the first "American" Dragon, came to the summit, replacing him as the new Dragon in Order. Fred initially did not like Jake because of this and as a warm welcome, tripped him when he was riding his skateboard, resulting in Jake earning a bad first impression with the council. A prank war ensued between the two new dragons as they humiliated each other in public. When it came time for Jake's final test, the Test of Courage in Flight, Fred was chosen as his racing opponent. The two were neck and neck in the race when suddenly, the Dark Dragon made his move, and although his intention was to get Jake, he instead caught Fred and used him as bait. Jake flew in after him and freed him after he was found, chained to a wall. Jake stayed behind to fight the Dark Dragon, but Fred returned to save him. The two escaped and Fred ended up winning the competition. However after much hesitation, he admitted to everyone that Jake had chosen to save him instead of just winning the race. He ultimately thanked Jake for his rescue, but declared a rematch for the next Dragon Summit, to which Jake gladly accepted.[2]

Fred Nerk later attended the Thousand Year Old Feast in Hong Kong, China along with the other world-wide dragons.[3]

TriviaEdit

  • Fred Nerk was created by Jeff Goode. He is described as "an affable bloke; plays rugby; likes to travel; not especially concerned about dragoning ("The bloody place pretty much takes care of itself.")"[4]
  • His dragon form's design was based on Sea Dragons, which are native to the waters of Australia.[5]
  • The crew members once talked about making him aboriginal but the idea was scrapped for an unknown reason. It was hinted that Disney is cautious of making antagonist characters of color.[6]
