Not every girl gets pulled into another dimension and treated like a Cow. Fred, however, is that girl. Out of the alternate dimension of Pylea, home to her friend Lorne, who also hates it there, a 'handsome man saved her from the monsters.' Fred is a brilliant physicist, and an equally brilliant MacGyver, tinkering with things, inventing things, all to help her new friend Angel on his mission of redemption. She also has one of the worst cases of post traumatic stress imaginable, writing on walls, sometimes, to relieve her stress when the oppression she suffered in Pylea gets to be too much.

Fred is a tall, waifish woman with pale skin that looks like it might burn under too much direct sunlight. She brown eyes and long wavy brown hair that is generally left free of any tie. A young woman, she looks to be somewhere in her mid-twenties or perhaps younger due to her generally innocent and genuine expression.

Currently, she is wearing a black skirt and a dark red sweater. Her shoes are sensible flats. She wears a small silver cross about her neck, but otherwise does not wear any other kind of jewelry and her make up is a natural look.

The only child of Roger and Trish Burkle, Fred grew up in a loving household in Dallas Texas. A smart girl, she sailed through high school as well as her bachelor's degree, never veering far from home. She even went to college at the Dallas State School so that she could stay close to her family. However, every bird has to spread it's wings, and Fred's time came when she found her calling to study physics. Accepted to the UCLA program in Los Angeles, she moved to the big city.

Excelling in all of her classes, Fred proved herself to be a bright, up and coming physicist. When she wasn't in the lab or studying, she was working at the Stewart Brunell Public Library. It was in this library that Fred came upon the ancient text that opened the portal to Pylea. Always curious, she spoke part of the ancient text aloud, which activated the portal and sucked her into the Hellish dimension without giving her any way of returning.

For five years, Fred survived Pylea. She worked as a cow with an explosive collar around her neck for two years before finally managing to disable it and escape into the woods. There, she found a small cave that she made her own and hid away from everyone and everything that could take her back to being a slave. Every once in awhile she would have to travel into town to steal food and sometimes her curiosity just got the best of her. Scribbling physic equations and pictographs on the wall in an attempt to both remember and forget her old life, she went a little insane. Using a defense mechanism, she convinced herself that LA and that dimension never existed - that this had always been her life. Still very smart and with amazing survival instinct, she managed to keep herself alive for years until luck sent Angel into Pylea. He rescued Fred and pulled her back to their proper dimension.

Once returned, she hid herself away, drawing on walls and generally terrified that at any moment, any action might bring her back to Pylea.

After awhile, she managed to crawl back to something approaching normal. Her family eventually found her and helped her recover. Eventually, she moved to Bludhaven in an attempt to use the knowledge that she knew to make a difference. She is between herself and while she is more stable than she has been in a few years, she still has some trauma she is working through.

Fred is exceptionally smart. While she may not have much starting knowledge on the occult, she's a quick study and knows advanced physics, science and mathematics. She's also quite observant and a quick learner - how else could someone survive in the wilderness in an entirely new dimension without knowing what plants were edible and which were poisonous?

A bit of a chatterbox, she doesn't know when to just shut her mouth or when her hypothesis/idle chatter should possibly be kept to inner monologue. While she may not look strong or brave at a glance, she has amazing survival skills in the harshest of circumstances. Keeping herself alive in the abandoned woods of Pylea for five years, she has proven herself to have an enormous willpower and an intense loyalty to those that saved her as well as those that have proven themselves to be her friend.

As she spent five years alone, she's used to talking to herself and not so used to relating with others. Things that may not be usually usually spoken outloud are no matter to her. For the most part, she just says what she thinks without much of a filter. Socially awkward, but as friendly as a puppy, she's eager and happy to help. She's a kind woman who wishes to see the best in the people around her. However, due to betrayal and traumatic background, she is quite capable of being calculating and unforgiving to those that have done her or the people she loves wrong. With sufficient evidence and her own beliefs, she will cut off someone she thought of as a close friend or trusted colleague without prejudice.

Also, she loves tacos. Loves them.

Fred has a genius level intellect. She was well on her way to finishing her doctorate program far before her time. Able to think on her feet as well as comprehend complex problems and solve them on the run, her smarts are able to get herself and others out of multiple problems.

Mad Scientist:
Always an inventor, Fred is able to put together both complex Rube Goldberg-like devices under pressure as well as more delicate and finessed devices with time on her side. Her mind is always able to think outside of the box or take a rational leap in order to come up with solutions others would not have. She can build a device that could corporealize a ghost, or a large box that may make toast. With Fred, you can never really tell.


Fred does not give up easily. It does not matter how horrible the circumstances or how dire the outlook, she will face it and come out on the other side. She has already faced living alone in a hell dimension where the demons there captured, enslaved and killed humans and she escaped. The challenges she and the people she faces can be dealt with: she knows it.

Fred is good at research and science and math and helping find things out that way. People interviews and hitting the street is not so much her forte. While she is observant and smart, she also tends to be trusting - not the best suits in attempting to figure out if a suspect or a potential client is lying.


In her former life, before being pulled into Pylea, Fred was a graduate student in Physics physics program of UCLA and was bright enough to make her professor jealous of her talents. While she no longer is going for her PhD, she applies the same testing and scientific mind to the supernatural and everything around her.

Fred has two loving parents who are willing to support her no matter what she does. They supported her move from Texas to LA and then, after her return, they supported her when she decided to stay and study the supernatural. Their continued and utter support has helped Fred multiple times. Also, her mother will run over demon bugs with a bus.

A Little Crazy:
Having spent a lot of time alone and on the run in a dimension she didn't understand and with little hope of returning to Earth, Fred turned inward. Since returning, she has gotten better, but she is still a little bit crazy. It can crop up at strange times and tends to make her awkward around other people.

Foot In Mouth:
Fred has the tendency to speak before thinking. This can lead to long, rambling speeches about science or possibilities. It can also mean that she says things that might offend or embarrass them or herself before she can shut her mouth.

After being sucked through a portal into a hell dimension, Fred was quite broken. While she is generally okay with magic, porting magic will make her freak out again. The idea of being trapped in other dimensions will almost certainly get her writing on walls again.


While Fred is usually a trusting person, once she learns that someone has abused or taken advantage of that trust, she will completely and utterly disconnect from them. If proper evidence is produced that incriminates someone as having caused her or her loved ones harm, she will not hesitate to retaliate against them.
