Personal details / histories
Laz is idealistic and driven to defend innocent people. Fred is dimwitted and always follows his heart to perform good deeds. Jasper is somewhat shy/sensitive to display his true feelings to others but is always there whenever anyone needs help.
Each member of the trio has a distinctive haircut: Laz has slightly wavy stylized hair that stands up; Fred has straight hair with bangs; Jasper has curly hair. They all wear usual male teenage clothing such as solid/patterned shirts, dress shirts, baseball shirts, jackets, jeans, corduroy pants, and khakis. Also, they all wear boxer shorts for underwear.
The three are not related to each other. Laz' full name is Lazlo Lackerson (revealed by the priest in the Soupless in Seattle episode). His family members are Rick Lackerson (his father), Michelle Callahan (his stepmother), Molly Callahan (his little stepsister) and Gus Lackerson (his little brother). Laz is 19 years old and recently graduated high school. He works at Yippee, Hot Dogs! with Fred. His parents wanted him to move out, but after seeing that Laz is a good influence on Molly they decided to let him stay as long as he likes. Fred's full name is never revealed nor his full family. Based on several episodes, Fred has a mother who is an irresponsible, abusive, and negligent parent. She may have been responsible for Fred being dimwitted (she smoked pot while she was pregnant with Fred revealed in the Breaking Away episode) Jasper's full name is Jasper Flickman (revealed by Michelle in the Wouldn't It Be Nice episode). He has a mother, father, and grandmother (who later dies).
