Doc Pendragon first encountered The Red Fedora sometime in 1920. The story goes that Red had taken a case finding a lady who didn’t want to be found on behalf of a very bad man. Doc, having heard of this strange and relentless PI with the distinctive hat, went out of his way to convince Red that he needed to use his talents to make the world a better place, not just sell them to anyone who could find him. Aside from that and his exploits after becoming a founding member of the Paragon Society, no one knows anything much about The Red Fedora. Doc Pendragon must, but he’s not saying.

The Red Fedora seems practically unchanged in the 15 years since the Society’s founding. He both looks (from what you can see under the hat) and behaves just the same. Red speaks in a near monotone, has difficulty understanding nuances of verbal and facial expression, and has body language that often seems at odds with the conversation or circumstance.
