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 thinking the fall was his fault.

Excursion to the forestEdit

On May 3rd, 2013, Felix was playing his guitar, much to his dad's annoyance. After talking with his rather stressed family, he walked to school with his best friend, Ellen O'Donnell.

Felix with Ellen

At the forest, he was paired up with Jake Riles, Andy Lau and Sam Conte, much to Ellen's dismay. He ended up receiving many insults from Jake throughout the trip.

During the walk, Felix discovered a 'shortcut', but fell down the cliff after losing the map, along with the rest of the boys. During this time, he played his song (the Unmaking Spell) to the rest of the boys, while explaining what happened to a rugby team when they crashed in the Andes.

After being chased by a tornado, he and the rest of the boys found their way home. Felix met his brother who, much to Felix's surprise, can walk! His excitement was cut short when he finds Oscar can no longer remember him.

At Felix's return, he told Ellen that he "really" missed her while he was away.

Return to Real WorldEdit

After returning, Felix discovers he now has the ability to control fire. He immediately becomes suspicious of Alice's return coinciding with theirs, but initially dismisses it as the talisman does nothing to indicate any danger.

At the same time, he has to deal with Andy, who is determined to reveal the truth about magic to the world. During the interview, an emotional Jake causes the ground to shake, making all the boys realize they now have elemental powers. Felix demonstrates his own power by casting a ball of fire with his hand.

Andy becomes jealous of Felix, when he sees Ellen with Felix together and in an attempt to win her over tries using his magic but fails ultimately embarrassing himself instead. In a fit he runs off and using a spell tries to control his power however Andy disappears. Felix, Jake and Sam are the suspects of Andy's disappearance.

Search for AndyEdit

Felix later discovers that Ellen is the new water element and tells her the truth. He tells Ellen that when he was lost with Jake, Andy, and Sam, he thought about her everyday. He then kisses her, and starts a relationship with Ellen.

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.[2]
