Felix Ferne is a male goth who lives in the Real World. Early in his teenage years, Felix and his brother Oscar were climbing a tree, and Felix urged his brother to climb higher. However, his brother slipped which lead to his paralysis.
Felix decided to cast an Unmaking Spell during a school excursion to the Bremin forest; however, this lead to him and his friends Sam Conte, Andy Lau and Jake Riles to be transported to an Alternate World where their existence is rendered void. In that world, Felix learned that he has the elemental power of fire.
Felix is often portrayed as a "goth" who believes in magic. He comes off as being sarcastic and unsociable, and is fairly intelligent. He is best friends with Ellen in the Real World, and later builds the confidence to ask her out on a date. He has a close relationship with his brother Oscar, in both universes.
Felix and his brother Oscar were climbing a tree in their back yard. Felix, being higher up in the tree, encouraged Oscar to climb higher, telling him they could see the whole of Bremin from up there. However Oscar slipped and fell several meters to the ground.
The incident left Oscar crippled, restricting him to a wheelchair. Felix became heavily guilt ridden believing the fall to be his fault.
Excursion to the forestEdit
During the walk, Felix had the others follow him on what he said was a shortcut, ignoring Andy's feeble protests against stepping off the path. As the group eventually reached a high cliff, by which time his sense of direction had been brought into question, Felix stepped out onto the edge to see if he could spot any of the other students below. When he saw nothing but wild forest, he decided to consult the map again to see exactly where they were: Unexpectedly a sudden burst of wind swept over him, losing both the map and his footing. As his balance failed him and he began to fall forwards, the other boys rushed forward to try and keep him from falling, only for them to slide on what suddenly had become very unstable ground. They all slipped over the edge, rolling down the hill and landed in the grassy ground below. Neither of them were hurt, but all of them greatly upset to find that both the map and much of their proviant having gone missing in the fall.
As they began walking, intent on reuniting with their peers and get back to the assignment before somebody beat them to it, they eventually decided to set up camp as darkness fell over the woods. For most of the night, they sat around a campfire, contemplating on their predicament. In a failed attempt to cheer everybody up, Felix played his song to the other boys, while explaining what happened to a rugby team when they crashed in the Andes and ultimately led to cannibalism, which nobody took too seriously except Andy. The following morning, they packed their things and headed off, hoping to find their way out of the woods when all of a sudden, a freak tornado descended from the grey sky, forcing the boys to make a run for it to save their lives.
He and the rest of the boys found their way home. Felix met his brother who, much to Felix's surprise, could walk! His excitement was cut short when he found Oscar could no longer remember him.
Return to Real WorldEdit
When Felix returned, he told Ellen that he "really" missed her while he was away. He soon discovered that he suddenly had the ability to control fire. He immediately became suspicious of Alice's return coinciding with theirs, but initially dismissed it as the talisman did nothing to indicate any danger.
At the same time, he had to deal with Andy, who was determined to reveal the truth about magic to the world. During the interview, an emotional Jake caused the ground to shake, making all the boys realize they now had elemental powers. Felix demonstrated his own power by casting a ball of fire with his hand.
Andy became jealous of Felix, when he saw Ellen with Felix together and in an attempt to win her over tried using his magic but failed, ultimately embarrassing himself instead. In a fit he ran off and used a spell trying to control his power, however, Andy disappeared. Felix, Jake and Sam were the suspects of Andy's disappearance.
Search for AndyEdit
Felix later discovered that Ellen was the new water element and told her the truth. He told Ellen that when he was lost with Jake, Andy, and Sam, he thought about her everyday. He then kissed her, and started a relationship with Ellen.
Investigating the lairEdit
Discovering a Book of ShadowsEdit
Battle against ChaosEdit
Years after he and the other boys' disappearance into the Alternate World, a student at Bremin High named Ben Ripley wanted to continue Felix's journey and looked to assemble a new group of Nowhere Boys. Additionally, Jesse Banda, who attended the school at the same period, created a musical called Lost in the Forest, detailing a perspective of their disappearance.
In the Empty World, these Nowhere Boys — including Banda and an alternate Ripley, along with Luke Hamill, Nicco Pandelis and Heath Buckland — discovered the secret lair which Felix's father Ken had built, along with his Book of Shadows and in it, the original adventure.
