Freddy Martinez is the main protagonist of the forty-ninth book, Vampire Breath.


Freddy and his best friend, Cara Simonetti were babysitting for Freddy's neighbor, Tyler Brown. Freddy was enjoying himself by telling Tyler (who scares easily) a scary story about werewolves, in spit of Cara's objections. She tried to stop Freddy by wrestling with him and Freddy was hit in the stomach by her which made him see stars. But that didn't stop Freddy by continuing to tell his werewolf story to Tyler, despite his friend's pleas for him to stop. Then they heard footsteps in the other room and all three of them thought it was a werewolf. It turned out to be Tyler's father and he and Mrs. Brown were not pleased to know that Freddy had been telling scary stories to Tyler again. After being payed five dollars each by Mr. Brown, Freddy and Cara walked home, having a laugh about the werewolf story and how Tyler had been scared by it.

On Saturday afternoon, Freddy had invited Cara over and they went down to the basement to play hockey.

General information


Freddy is one of the toughest kids in the sixth grade. He likes it when the teacher's chalk squeaks on the board and he likes having to compete with Cara and he can be a bit cheeky. Apparently, he and Cara have been friends since he beat her up in fourth grade, but it is said that she beat him up. Sometimes Freddy has a tendency to get carried away with some things, such as his strength when he fights with Cara and with his scary stories to Tyler. Freddy enjoys babysitting for Tyler because he scares so easily and he considers himself to be a good babysitter (The reason Freddy thinks that is because he knows when to stop tickling Tyler). Sometimes there are moments when Freddy is pretty serious, such as when they had to get the VAMPIRE BREATH before Count Nightwing did. It was also a total shock to Freddy when he learned that Count Nightwing is his grandfather and he is a vampire himself. But even though Freddy is a vampire, it would seem unlikely that it would change who he is and he would always have his friends.
