The Fair Gwen is Freak's mother.  She is a beautiful woman and Max and Freak started calling her the title.  Freak likes the whole idea of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.  He calls trips that the boys make together quests.  Freak teaches Max about quests and King Arthur and the fair Queen Genevieve. 

Together the boys talks about the dragons and the dragon representing the arch type or the unknown enemy. He refers to his compass as an artifact passed down from Sir Lancelot that had even been kept by the Black Night for a brief period.
