When Robert tricks her into leaving, lying to her that he is invited to Fidel Castro’s birthday, she learns from her friend, Nicole over the Bluetooth earpiece that it was a lie. After spying on Robert, she hears him call her a “crazy bitch”, making her upset and very angry. She then breaks into the house and locks Huey and Riley in their room, while she knocks Robert out and ties him up on his bed, planning to kill him with a gun (the same is later done to Tom Dubois). She then reveals she’s the victim of several bad (and often abusive)relationships with men, including a father who usually beats her mother.

He steals Riley’s chain which he received from Thugnificent, after knocking him out.

He and his very large family travel from their home in New Orleans, Louisiana to Woodcrest after they were displaced by the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster. After much pleading, Robert allows him and his clan into his home. However, he and his grandchildren, Huey and Riley, soon find out that nearly all of them(with the exception of one girl) are lazy and unappreciative of their gratitude, although Jericho insists once he receives his FEMA check he will pay him back. However, his and the clan’s freeloading habits tests Robert’s patience forcing him to make several attempts to get them out of the household to no avail. The mail does eventually come in and he tells them that the FEMA check didn’t come as planned. However, he reveals to his son Nique that it was a ruse, showing him a check worth$200,000. He then craftily heaps praise on Granddad’s warm heart while subtly getting him repeatedly to refuse to make them pay, just in case he were ever to find out the truth, and leaves off with his family to New Orleans. Appears in “Invasion of the Katrinians”.

 

Tobias Lynchwater/Catcher Freeman (voiced by Donald Faison): Robert’s great great great grandfather, and Huey and Riley’s great great greatgreat grandfather, his story has been somewhat muddled in history.Robert thought that Catcher Freeman was a powerful, ninja-like abolitionist who was like “Malcolm X, Nat Turner, and Barack Obama all rolled into one.” Uncle Ruckus thought he was in fact a feral, almost dog like slave hunter. Huey’s quick research on the internet, however, revealed the truth. Catcher Freeman was actually Tobias, a house slave, and the illegitimate son of Confederate Colonel George Stenchwater. Hewas hoping to be able to buy his way to freedom by showing the colonel his creation, the world’s first screenplay. The Colonel in fact was impressed by the script, and was willing to buy the script in exchange for Tobias’ freedom. However, right at that second, the other slaves lead a revolt against the Colonel, led by the woman Tobias loved, Thelma. In the struggle, Thelma and Col. Stenchwater are locked in a hand-to-hand, and Tobias sees the Colonel’s discarded rifle. He tries firing at Thelma, so he can guarantee his freedom, but in fact misses and hits the Colonel. Tobias then decides to “join the winning team “with the revolting slaves, and leaves to Canada with Thelma, changing his name to Catcher Freeman. Both Robert and Ruckus refuse to believe the true story. Appears in “The Story of Catcher Freeman”.
