Fred "Shorty" Baxter was active in South-Sea China during the 1940's. He aided Dave Dean in an attempt to salvage a cache of pearls from a sunken ship. When Dave was attacked by the Demon of the Deep and suffered the bends when coming to the surface too fast, Shorty would help him gain back his health. In a second attempt to recover the pearls it would be Shorty's quick boating skills that would pull Dean out of the way of another attack by the Demon. This would lead to Dave Dean capturing the so called "Demon" and reveal his true identity to be Phillip Blackwood.[1]
