Based on the bestselling horror video game series, Five Nights at Freddy’s follows a young woman named Charlotte, who reunites with her childhood friends on the anniversary of the tragedy that ripped their town apart. It’s been exactly ten years since the murders at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, and Charlotte, who goes by the name Charlie, has spent the last ten years trying to forget. Her father had owned Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, and had built its four adult-sized animatronic animals. After meeting up with her friends, curiosity leads them back to the old pizza place, and they find it hidden, but still standing. They discover a way inside, but things are not as they used to be: the four mascots that delighted and entertained them as children have changed. The animatronic animals have a dark secret, and a murderous agenda.
Real Name: Charlotte
Birthday: May 13
Aunt Jen is what Charlie refers to her aunt as. While Aunt Jen is never present in the book, she is mentioned in several flashbacks and is described often by Charlie. She seems to be a strong woman, able to take action when necessary. She puts emphasis on things Charlie should do to be well-prepared for any occasion as well as expects her to be mostly independent. It is never stated which of Charlie's parents she is a sibling to, though it can be assumed it was her father as Jen has ownership of Charlie's old house and the property it's on.
Henry is Charlotte's father and former owner of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza as well as the creator of the several animatronic animals that inhabited the restaurant.
|Henry's other child, Sammy, was abducted at his other restaurant, Fredbear's Family Diner. In the end, this event caused a divorce between him and his wife as well as shutting down the restaurant and moving away from New Harmony to Hurricane. He spent his days building robots and other mechanisms, both for his business and his daughter. It is later revealed that Henry committed suicide some time after Michael's disappearance, though in a rather unusual means as he had one of his robots kill him.|
The late Michael Brooks was a friend of Charlie, John, and the others until his disappearance from Freddy Fazbear's Pizza in July of 1985. It is a memorial service for him which brings all his friends back to Hurricane, Utah 10 years later.
|It is later revealed that Michael's spirit, along with the other victims, inhabit the animatronics in Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Specifically, Michael's soul resides in the yellow Freddy suit that was used at Fredbear's Family Diner.|
The mother of Michael Brooks.
The father of Michael Brooks.
Occupation: Police Chief
Clay is a Carlton's father and the resident Chief of Police. He seems somewhat aloof and is well aware of the hijinks his son gets into. Clay also worked the case involving Michael's disappearance 10 years prior to the story and even made an arrest. However, they had to release the culprit due to lack of evidence and it has haunted Clay's mind since.
Occupation: Hurricane, Utah District Attorney
Betty is Carlton's mother and the DA for Hurricane. She is a lot more uptight than her husband Clay and more reserved as well.
Occupation: Security Guard
Dave Miller is the security guard that patrols the mall that entombs the decomissioned Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. He is described as being rather skinny with loose skin and dead eyes. Upon actually meeting the main characters, he reveals that he's known the location of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza for a long time.
| Real Name: William Afton|
Dave Miller's true identity is later revealed to be William Afton, former partner of Henry and co-owner of Fredbear's Family Diner and Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Henry relied on William for the business side of the diner. However, unknown to Henry, William was a dangerous man, having kidnapped and murder his son Sammy, his daughter's friend Michael, and at least three other children who had visited either establishment they owned. He would do this under the guise of the Spring Bonnie hybrid suit used at Fredbear's.
It is implied that the spring locks of the suit have failed on him before, as he is described as having several symmetrical scars all over his torso and neck. This is further supported by how accurately and intimately he can describe the experience of spring lock failure while inside a suit.
Occupation: Police Officer
Officer Dunn is the youngest member of the Hurricane Police Force. He is usually the one to deal with teenagers and does so willingly as he wants to show them that some police officers can be alright people.
|He meets his end when investigating the abandoned Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where he is stabbed in the chest. His body is later found by Charlie and the others inside a storage room.|
Harriet is the local librarian in Hurricane. She has a son named Aiden who is of elementary school age and previously resided in Indiana.
Exactly ten years after the murders at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, Charlie returns to Hurricane, Utah in order to attend a dedication ceremony for a scholarship created in memory of her friend Michael who had also fallen victim to the tragedies that occurred there. With several hours to kill before meeting with all her old friends, Charlie heads to her childhood home which has been virtually untouched since the day she left.
She wanders the house and reminisces about her childhood memories and the day her Aunt Jen had suddenly taken her away in a hurry. She particularly explores her old bedroom, playing with the old toys her father had made her – a stuffed rabbit named Theodore and a couple robots on tracks. These bring back memories of her father’s workshop where a robotic skeleton with piercing silver eyes lurked in the corner. This robot in particular makes Charlie uncomfortable and she always thought it looked to be in pain.
Shaken from her reverie, she heads back to her car only to find that she has lost her keys. She heads back inside to find her keys the Theodore. She also finds that the darkening light had made her fondest toys more uneasy-looking. Charlie heads out, unnerved, only to trip on a track and be “taunted” by Ella, a mechanical doll. She leaves in a hurry after that.
A mile down the road, Charlie pulls over to compose herself. She then heads to a local restaurant to meet up with her friends for the first time in ten years. Upon arrival, she finds Jessica, Carlton, and John have already arrived. John in particular was a good friend of Charlie’s. He was somewhat of a childhood crush, but more than that, the only person she had ever allowed in her room as a child. She enters and begins to catch up with the lives of the others.
Eventually, conversation turns to the death of their friend Michael as well as Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Charlie’s memories of the pizzeria were marred, given her history of the place, but she still tries to enjoy talking with her friends. Her memory is spotty of the place regardless, even mistaking Freddy’s fur as being yellow. Spurred on by the conversation, Charlie wishes to see the place again, hoping it’s still there somewhere.
And with that, the group decides to go see the pizzeria from their childhoods.
