Fearless Shagaford is the head of the Fearless Detective Agency. He employed his nephew Shaggy Rogers plus Scooby-Doo, Scrappy-Doo, Scooby-Dum, Flim-Flam, Fred Jones, Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkley to take cases while he was away on travel.
He is a tall Caucasian man with gray hair, which is turning white at the temples. He has a mustache and a goatee.
Most of the time he is an unseen presence, giving instructions over the phone to his nephew. From Shaggy's reactions, he often seems angry.
