A strong, silent student at Cromartie High School. Not much is known about him, other than his strong resemblance to the late Freddy Mercury.
Freddie is a student who strongly resembles the late rock singer Freddie Mercury. He is enrolled at Cromartie High School, though not a lot of him his known. He is usually seen wearing brown pants with red suspenders and travels to school on horseback. According to the sources of Hokuto's Lackey, he is one of the students who "controls" Cromartie's first years.
The real Freddy Mercury is never mentioned in Cromartie; when first meeting him, Kamiyama wonders if he was Japanese, or if he could even speak Japanese. After some thought, Kamiyama decides to call him Freddie, for reasons which are never explained.
The character himself has strong resemblance to the late singer. While not an exact look-a-like, they share the same mustache and hair. Additionally, they are both singers. While Freddy himself is never heard singing, he is seen with a microphone. There is never an explicit moment where it stated that Freddie looks like the original person, but the anime and manga does drop various hints.
