The Maze Runner Wiki

Siggy[1], better known as Frypan, is the Keeper of the Cooks. He is probably named after Sigmund Freud. He was originally named Toby before being taken by WICKED.


The Fever Code

Siggy makes one appearance in The Fever Code. After George is stung by a Griever, Siggy tells the other Gladers about a syringe of liquid that had come up in a box of supplies. Since he had no idea what it was for, he had not mentioned it to anyone. Alby tells him to bring the syringe, and they inject George with it.

The Maze Runner

In The Maze Runner, Siggy is first mentioned by Gally and Chuck to be a little ill-tempered. However, he actually seems to be friendly enough. Siggy later grows to be a good friend of Thomas and speaks up for him during a Gathering, along with Newt, Minho, and Clint. He is the Keeper of the Cooks in the Glade, or maybe the only one. The other Gladers joke about the food he prepares being horrible stuff, but the truth is that Frypan is a very good cook and they enjoy their meals. It is said that Siggy is the last Keeper to agree to follow Thomas into battle. He escapes with the other 19 survivors.

The Scorch Trials

In The Scorch Trials, Siggy appears a few times, occasionally talking to Thomas, Newt, Minho, Winston, and Jack. He is only made notable when helping Winston leave the Flat Trans. He is also the one who spots Thomas and Brenda in the Crank City when they are trapped in a dead end. Siggy witnesses them being threatened and forced into a basement party by three Cranks (Blondie, Tall and Ugly, Ponytail) and, together with the other Gladers and Jorge, rescues Thomas and Brenda.

The Death Cure

In The Death Cure, Siggy originally chose not to get his memory restored, but a short time later, he changed his mind. Siggy is not seen afterwards until he and the other Immunes meet up with Thomas in the Maze. He then runs with all of the others and escapes with them into the Flat Trans.


The Maze Runner

In the Maze Runner film, Frypan witnesses Thomas being brought up into the Glade via the Box. He scans Thomas and chortles that he does need help in the kitchens before the latter tries to make a break for it, only to trip and fall. When Gally stops Thomas from walking into the Maze, Frypan and the Gladers join Gally in stopping Thomas from walking into the Maze. Later, Frypan watches on as Thomas wrestles with Gally and is one of the first members to congratulate him. He hands Thomas a Mason jar of Gally's brew and tells him "Welcome home, Thomas," before a Griever roars in the distance behind the Maze walls. After Thomas and Minho survive the Maze for a night, Frypan voices his concerns about Minho making Thomas a Runner right away, saying, "Let's not jump to conclusions." He observes Teresa coming up in the Box and backs away when she comes to, sputtering for air before saying Thomas' name and falling unconscious again. When Thomas insists on returning to the Maze to look at the Griever corpse, Minho invites Frypan to join them. He helps pull the Griever leg apart from the squished body and Minho retrieves a metal cylinder with a digital screen reading, "07." He is present when the group presents their findings to Newt and Gally back at the Gathering hut. Gally argues with Newt over how to handle Thomas and the fact that he continues to break the rules of the Glade and Newt overrules him, saying that Thomas can become a Runner after staying one night in the Pit without food. Angered, Gally storms off and Frypan tries to stop him, only to be rebuffed by the other Keeper. Frypan joins the other Gladers as they hide and try to avoid the Grievers when the doors stop closing. He and the other Keepers are forced to restrain an angry Gally, who punches Thomas in the face and blames him for all of the problems that happened since he came up in the Box. Thomas stabs himself in the thigh with the Griever's stinger and Frypan rushes to help as Thomas starts to lose consciousness. Days later, Gally takes command and decides to use Thomas and Teresa as bait for the Grievers to take for the next night. Eventually, Thomas, Teresa, Newt, Minho, and Frypan fight back, revealing that they intend to leave the Glade to find life outside the Maze. He and the small group of Gladers planning to leave fight off the Grievers as they make their way to the concealed entrance in Section 7. Once the code has been input, the Gladers find themselves in a dimly lit hallway, Frypan noting a clearly marked door with an Exit sign. The group steps around the bodies of the WCKD techs that were shot and killed as they enter the control room where the techs were watching them. Frypan watches the message left by Ava Paige explaining why the Maze trials were done. He starts to leave the lab with the others until Gally, who is stung by a Griever, appears with a gun. Gally tells them that they will never be free before shooting at Thomas, only for Chuck to take the bullet instead, while Minho throws a spear at Gally, impaling him in the chest. Frypan hangs his head as Chuck dies in Thomas' arms before soldiers invade the base and grab the survivors, claiming that they are taking them somewhere safe.

The Scorch Trials

In the Scorch Trials film, Frypan escapes WCKD along with the others. He travels through the Scorch and makes it to the Right Arm, fighting with his friends when WCKD attacks the group and captures Minho, Aris, and Sonya. He is among those who remain free, together with Thomas, Newt, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, and Harriet.

The Death Cure

In the Death Cure film, Frypan helps Thomas, Newt, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, Harriet, and the Right Arm rescue Aris, Sonya, and a group of Immunes and take them to their new hideout.

At night, when Thomas leaves the hideout to go to the Last City to rescue Minho, Frypan and Newt join him.

The next day, Frypan, Thomas, and Newt drive into the sewers, where the Cranks attack them, Frypan shoots at them with a shotgun, but soon runs out of ammo. Brenda and Jorge arrive and save them from the Cranks. Thomas tells Brenda that he didn't want to put anyone in danger and Frypan thanks Brenda and Jorge for saving them.

Frypan, Thomas, Newt, Brenda, and Jorge arrive in the Last City. Thomas is scanned at the gate, and the WCKD guards recognize him. Frypan, Thomas, Newt, Brenda, and Jorge run from the turrets and into a safe corner where a crew wearing gas masks rescue them and take them to a hideout, where a member of the crew reveals himself to be Gally. Thomas, remembering when Gally killed Chuck while stung by a Griever, punches him in the face. Frypan joins Newt in stopping Thomas from punching Gally. When Jorge asks Frypan if he knows Gally, Frypan replies that Gally was an old friend.

While going with Thomas, Newt, Gally, Brenda, and Jorge to Lawrence's hideout, Frypan is told by Gally that he was found lying on the floor of the WCKD lab by Lawrence's crew, who, after discovering that he is immune to the Flare, pulled the spear out of his chest and took him to the Last City to meet Lawrence, who nursed Gally back to health and convinced him to join his crew. Frypan is told by Gally that Lawrence's crew is working to destroy WCKD. Frypan is told by Gally not to stare at Lawrence.

Frypan, Thomas, Newt, Gally, Brenda, and Jorge arrive in Lawrence's hideout. Frypan watches on as Lawrence tells Thomas that Frypan, Brenda, and Jorge can stay behind while he, Newt, and Gally can go into the Last City. As Jorge tells Thomas to be careful going with Newt and Gally into the Last City, Frypan tells Gally to take care of Thomas and Newt. Gally agrees and climbs down the ladder into the tunnels, with Thomas and Newt following suit.

At night, in Lawrence's hideout, Frypan, Thomas, Newt, Gally, Brenda, and Jorge go over plans to use Teresa to get into the WCKD Tower. Thomas is reluctant to use Teresa to get into the WCKD Tower. Newt reacts with extreme aggressiveness, screaming at Thomas for still having feelings for Teresa. Shocked about himself, Newt apologizes and walks out.

The next night, while Thomas and Gally go into the Last City to capture Teresa, Frypan goes with Newt, Brenda, and Jorge to an abandoned church. Thomas and Gally take Teresa to an abandoned church where Frypan, Newt, Brenda, and Jorge are. Frypan watches on as Teresa tells him, Thomas, Newt, and Gally that Minho is in Sub-Level-3 with the Immune teenagers. Thomas convinces Teresa to remove their trackers.

After getting their trackers removed by Teresa, Frypan and Gally wipe the back of their necks with cloths. Gally remarks to Frypan that Teresa enjoyed removing trackers and Frypan agrees with him. Newt approaches Frypan and Gally and gives them WCKD soldier overall uniforms and face-masking helmets.

Frypan climbs up a crane while Thomas, Teresa, Newt, and Gally go to the WCKD Tower, Brenda goes to a parking lot to steal a bus, and Jorge returns to the Right Arm's hideout.

After taking the Immune teenagers and the vials of serum that he had taken out of a vault in Sub-Level 3 to Brenda, Gally goes to find Thomas. Brenda drives the Immune teenagers out of the garage, but is cornered by WCKD soldiers. Brenda fires a flare gun into the sky to signal for Frypan to save them with the crane.

Frypan, Brenda, and the Immune teenagers discover that Lawrence has gone to destroy the walls of the Last City. Jorge and Vince arrive with a berg to pick them up. They fly into the city to get Thomas, Newt, Minho, and Gally.

Frypan, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, and the Immune teenagers are waiting at the berg when they hear Teresa telling Thomas that his blood can cure Newt like it did Brenda. Minho and Gally arrive, asking where the serum is. Frypan, Minho, Gally, and Brenda arrive at the train station where they see that Thomas has killed Newt. While Thomas walks off to the WCKD Tower, Frypan, Minho, Gally, and Brenda gather around Newt's dead body.

Frypan, Minho, Gally, and Brenda return to the berg where Jorge flies them, Vince, and the Immune teenagers to the top of the WCKD Tower where Thomas and Teresa are. Thomas is unable to get on the berg due to being shot in the stomach by Janson, but Teresa manages to throw him onto the ramp of the berg, allowing Frypan, Minho, Gally, Brenda, and Vince to pull him onboard. Teresa falls to her death when the WCKD Tower collapses. As Jorge flies Frypan, Thomas, Minho, Gally, Brenda, Vince, and the Immune teenagers away from the tower, Frypan helps Gally bandage Thomas' wound.

Sometime later, Frypan, Thomas, Minho, Gally, Aris, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, Sonya, Harriet, the Right Arm, and the Immune kids arrive at the Safe Haven. Frypan is cooking when he sees Thomas, who has woken up, approaching him. Frypan watches on as Thomas and Minho hug. At night, at the campfire, Frypan, Thomas, Minho, Gally, Aris, Brenda, Jorge, Sonya, Harriet, the Right Arm, and the Immune kids listen to Vince give a speech.

Frypan asks everyone at the Safe Haven if they want the food he has cooked. Frypan goes to the Memorial Rock and carves Winston's name on it. Frypan is sitting with Minho, Gally, Aris, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, Sonya, Harriet, the Right Arm, and the Immune teenagers at the campfire when Thomas approaches them and sits down with them. The next day, while Frypan is sleeping, Thomas goes to the memorial rock and carves Teresa's name on it. Thomas walks along the beach, stops walking, looks at the ocean and the ship, takes out the serum, looks at it, and looks out into the distance.

Physical Appearance and Personality

In The Fever Code, Frypan was described as being a tall boy who has dark skin. In The Maze Runner, he had a full beard and hair sticking out all over the rest of his body, "as if each follicle were trying to escape the confines of his food-smeared clothes." Thomas initially thought that Frypan was not the most sanitary guy to oversee all the cooking.

In the films, Frypan is depicted as a stocky boy who has dark skin, short hair, and no beard.

In the book, Frypan seems to be a quick and friendly character. Chuck mentions several times that Frypan hates it when the Gladers raid his fridge.
