Although Fred the turtle looks adorable, innocent, and like the cherished best friend to a sweet ginger-haired girl, he is actually mentally insane.

Fred was an army psychiatric patient who had been subjected to violent, hellish, torturous behavior-modification experiments.

Sometime in 1962, he managed to escape from the metal box the army kept him in. After living on the lamb, he eventually settled into a life of isolation, hiding from authorities deep inside the long-forgotten forest east of the mountains.

Fred is a prolific writer. Spending upwards of 18 hours a day manically hammering his short, club-like feet into a vintage typewriter pounding out one sinister manifesto after another.

A series of his earliest works are credited for inspiring the Unabomber.
