Fred Haprèle is an assistant educator at Collège Françoise Dupont, a mime performer, the leading actor in The Mime's Extraordinary Adventures, and Mylène's father.
Fred is kind and hardworking. When he is working as an assistant at school, he is serious and firm about keeping people without permission and who might hurt others out, including Rogercop in the episode of the same name and Nadja Chamack and her crew in "Darkblade", but when off duty, he is very genial to other people, and he is always showing love for his daughter. However, he tends to procrastinate, getting his hat fixed right before he needs to leave instead of having it done earlier, and he is often late.
