|“||Last of the Fortesque line. The Colonel led his men to a watery grave. He fights on in death in the vain hope of one day tasting victory.||”|
– Official in-game description.
Colonel Freddie Fortesque (c. 1878 – 1945) became a soldier of the British Army to fight for Britain like his predecessors. He met his demise in 1945 while carrying the spoils of war to the King on the H.M.S. Victoria.
|“||Pish and Baloney, the Fortesque family have been fighting, man and boy, for old 'Blighty' for over 1000 years, and we've never let a little thing like death get in the way of a good scrap. Why there's a Fortesque on every battlefield in the civilized world, Agincourt, dead, Waterloo, dead, Dunkirk, dead...||”|
– Colonel Freddie, Ghosthunter
After leaving a haunted school building, Lazarus, a ghosthunter, visited a ghost ship. As he progressed to the ship bridge, he met the Colonel, who explained that he and his crew are British soldiers and that they died carrying the spoils of war to the King in 1945. Even after death, he and his men were trying to protect one of the treasures, The Dagger of Poseidon, from the ship's captain, Kraken. Kraken had become greedy and tried to take the Dagger, killing the Colonel's men. Although Freddie had killed him, Kraken had become a monster in death. Lazarus eventually managed to defeat and capture Kraken with Freddie's help. He was also forced to capture Freddie, as he was a ghost as well.
