Fenwick Frazier is the best friend of CJ and Crispo. He is the deuteragonist of the series. He is portrayed by Jaheem King Toombs.
Fenwick has a father who works in robotics and a mother.
Fenwick is the smartest kid in class, all brains. He’s the voice of reason in the group and tries to play by the rules because that’s what a future world leader does.
He wears glasses and is usually seen wearing a tie, which he owns one hundred of, a button-up shirt, and khakis, which he owns numerous amounts of as well.
Fenwick is a very smart, cautious, energetic guy, and at many times he is known to be the pessimistic one of the group. He doesn't always agree with CJ at times, but he is willing to help her on her adventures and is always the one who thinks of what bad can happen, which helps the group at times. He can also be very brave and fun-loving at times as seen in "Say Yes to Everything for a Day Thing!" when he stands up to Mindy and her friends and dances in the schools hallway with CJ. He has many fears that he documents in his fear book.
Fenwick has shown selfish tendencies and can be rude and impatient with other people. He also wants to be the best at whatever endeavor he pursues and wants others to perceive him as being great. He is ashamed when he does not succeed at a task, like ceramics. He sometimes lies, which may tie back into him wanting to be perceived as great, and can be insensitive at times. He tries to get girls to notice him, but sometimes lies to them when they do.
When he does not get his way or is disappointed by something not going according to plan, he is known to throw a tantrum, something that CJ calls him a master of doing. It is shown that he does not recall much after a has a tantrum.
