Fred is the Australian Dragon. He first meets Jake on the Draco Island during the Dragon Summit. He initially does not like Jake because he is the first "American" Dragon, thus making him the new Dragon in the order (a title Fred once held). As such, the two wage a prank war and continuously make fools of each other in public. When it comes time for Jake's final test, the Test of Courage in Flight, he chooses Fred as his racing opponent (even though he is apparently very good at it). The two are neck and neck in the race, but suddenly, The Dark Dragon makes his move, and although his intention is to get Jake, he instead catches Fred and uses him as bait. Jake flies in after him and frees him after he is found, chained to a wall. The two dragons escape, but Fred ends up winning the competition anyway, however he does willingly admit to everyone that Jake had chosen to save him instead of just winning the race. He ultimately thanks Jake for his rescue, but declares a rematch for the next Dragon Summit, to which Jake gladly accepts.
He has orange horns on his head and orange stripes all over his body and tail. His claws are orange too. The mane on his back is orange, and the mane on his tail is yellow. Unlike most dragons, his wings resemble a large piece of hair or fur instead of leather wings, but the same bone structure can be seen by looking at the shape of the curves of his wings. The entirety of the fur of his wings matches the orange of his horns and stripes. At the fold of his wing, he has a spike of fur.
