Frederick "Fred" Jones, Jr. is the leader of Crystal Cove's newest incarnation of Mystery Incorporated.
Fred is a tall, muscular, Caucasian teenaged male, with blond hair. He's noted for his big chin. He wears a white sweater over a blue shirt, blue pants, brown shoes and a red ascot.
Fred has an intense love for mystery solving and building traps. His love for traps usually distract him from noticing anything else, such as his feelings for Daphne. Velma doesn't think he's very deep , meaning he doesn't seem to think about anything too carefully, almost always leading to trouble. Early on, Fred seemed almost clueless of Daphne's feelings thinking only about traps and staying friends with the gang as long as they live, much to Daphne's dismay. Finally, Fred asked Daphne on a date to the Trap Exhibit.
His discovery that his life had been a lie has profoundly affected him, leaving him in a deeply emotional state and forced him to search for his biological parents soon after he "made a new start" by breaking his engagement with Daphne and declaring "Mystery Incorporated is dead."
When Fred returned to Crystal Cove he immediately tried to get Daphne back, but much to his dismay Daphne was in a relationship with Baylor Hotner. Fred kept on attempting to win Daphne back but all his attempts failed. To fill the void, Fred grew a strong attachment to one of his teddy bears (Mr. Trapples) talking to it as if it were real. (Mr. Trapples is a play on Fred's hobby: trap-making). (The House of the Nightmare Witch)
Brad and Judy, two members of the original Mystery Inc., married and had a baby boy. Brad tried to come back to Crystal Cove, but Mayor Jones wanted to stop him, so he took the baby as ransom and said no harm would come to him as long as they stayed away. Mayor Jones gave the baby the false name of "Fred Jones, Jr." and showed him a picture cut from a magazine that was supposed to be his mother who left when he was just a little baby.
