Fred (I). Fred (I) appeared in the German dime novel Fred ex Voto #1-9 (1923).

Fred (I) is a wandering adventurer who is so badly burned by a love affair–he is the "pariah of love"–that he sells all his effects, abandons his last name, and takes off on a trip around the world, going where he will. He ends up "In the Serpent's Hole of the Caucuses," "Under the Thugs of Delhi," and "Rescued from the Madhouse."

Fred (I) appears in stories with titles like "Revenge of the Gypsy Prince," “The Bojaren’s Daughter,” and "The Secret of the Devil's Moors.”
