The Maze Runner Wiki

Siggy[1], or Frypan, and Old Man Frypan, was the Keeper of the Cooks. He could be named after Sigmund Freud. He was named Toby by his parents before being taken by WICKED, who then re-named him Siggy, but the Gladers later call him Frypan.


The Fever Code[]

Siggy made one appearance in The Fever Code. After George was stung by a Griever, Siggy told 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 told him to bring the syringe, and then inject George with it.

The Maze Runner[]

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

The Scorch Trials[]

In The Scorch Trials, Siggy appeared a few times, occasionally talking to Thomas, Newt, Minho, Winston, and Jack. He was only made notable when helping Winston leave the Flat Trans. He was also the one who spotted Thomas and Brenda in the City when they were trapped in a dead end. Siggy witnessed them being threatened and forced into a basement party by three Cranks (Blondie, Tall and Ugly, and Ponytail) and, together with the other Gladers and Jorge, rescued Thomas and Brenda. Frypan survived the Scorch Trials and fought and survived the Bulb Monsters.

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 was not seen afterwards until he and the other Immunes met up with Thomas in the Maze. He then ran with all of the others and escapes with them into the Flat Trans.

The Maze Cutter[]

In The Maze Cutter, Frypan is now an old man telling stories of his time during the Maze and Scorch Trials, and how he and the Gladers saved many other Gladers and found themselves on the island now. Frypan and the descendants now know about the terrible news happening outside the island.


The Maze Runner[]

In the Maze Runner Film, Frypan witnessed Thomas being brought up into the Glade through the Box. He scanned Thomas and chortles that he does need help in the kitchens before the latter tried to make a break for it, only to trip and fall. When Gally stopped Thomas from walking into the Maze, Frypan joined Gally and the other Gladers in stopping Thomas from walking into the Maze. Later, Frypan watched on as Thomas wrestled with Gally and is one of the first members to congratulate him. He handed Thomas a Mason jar of Gally's brew and tells him "Welcome home, Thomas," before a Griever roared in the distance behind the Maze walls.

After Thomas and Minho survived the Maze for a night, Frypan voiced his concerns about Minho making Thomas a Runner right away, saying, "Let's not jump to conclusions." He later observed Teresa coming up in the Box and backed away when she comes to, sputtering for air before saying Thomas' name and falling unconscious again. When Thomas insisted on returning to the Maze to look at the Griever corpse, Minho invited Frypan to join them. He helped pull the Griever leg apart from the squished body and Minho retrieved a metal cylinder with a digital screen reading, "07." He was present when the group presents their findings to Newt and Gally back at the Gathering hut. Gally argued 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 stormed out of the Council Hall and Frypan tried to stop him, only to be rebuffed by the other Keeper.

During the Grievers attack, Frypan joined the other Gladers as they hid and tried to avoid the Grievers when the doors stopped closing. He, along with the other Keepers, were forced to restrain Gally from beating up Thomas in far more rage, violence, and aggressiveness than before for all of the problems that happened since he came up in the Box. Thomas stabbed himself in the thigh with the Griever's stinger and Frypan rushed to help as Thomas started to lose consciousness. Days later, Gally, having taken First-in-Command, decided to use Thomas and Teresa as bait for the Grievers to take for the next night. Eventually, Frypan, along with Thomas, Teresa, Newt, and Minho, fought back, revealing that they intended to leave the Glade to find life outside the Maze, while Gally chose to stay in the Glade with some other Gladers. Frypan, along with the small group of Gladers planned to leave and fight off the Grievers as they made their way to the concealed entrance in Section 7.

Once the code had been entered, the Gladers found themselves in a dimly lit hallway, Frypan noting a clearly marked door with an Exit sign. The group stepped around the bodies of the WCKD techs who were shot and killed as they entered the control room where the techs were watching them. Frypan watched the message left by Ava Paige explaining why the Maze trials were done. He started to leave the lab with the others until Gally, having been stung by a Griever, appeared with a gun. Gally insisted that they would never be free before firing a bullet at Thomas, only for Chuck to sacrifice himself by taking the bullet instead, while Minho threw a spear at Gally, causing it to non-fatally impale him in the chest, causing Gally to drop to his knees, drop the gun, and collapse on his right side on the floor. Frypan hung his head as Chuck died in Thomas' arms before soldiers invaded the base and took the survivors, claiming that they are taking them somewhere safe.

The Scorch Trials[]

In the Scorch Trials Film, Frypan escaped WCKD along with the others. He travelled through the Scorch and made it to the Right Arm, fighting with his friends when WCKD attacked the group and kidnapped Minho, Aris, and Sonya. He was among those who remained free, together with Thomas, Newt, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, and Harriet.

The Death Cure[]

In the Death Cure Film, Frypan participated with Thomas, Newt, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, Harriet, and the Right Arm in their mission to rescue and take Aris, Sonya, and a group of Immunes to their new hideout.

At night, when Thomas left the hideout to go to the Last City to rescue Minho, Frypan, along with Newt, joined him.

The next day, Frypan, along with Thomas and Newt, drove into the sewers, where Cranks began attacking them, Frypan shot at them with a shotgun, but soon ran out of ammo. Brenda and Jorge arrived and saved them from the Cranks. Thomas told Brenda that they didn't want to put anyone in danger and Frypan thanked Brenda and Jorge for saving them.

Frypan, along with Thomas, Newt, Brenda, and Jorge, arrived at the Last City. Thomas was scanned at the gate, and the WCKD guards recognized him. Frypan, Thomas, Newt, Brenda, and Jorge ran from the turrets and into a safe corner where a crew wearing gas masks rescued them and took them to a hideout, where one of the crew members revealed themselves to be Gally. Thomas, still enraged over Gally killing Chuck during the escape from the Maze, gave him a punch to the face as revenge for the punch to the face that he endured from Gally after the Grievers' attack on the Glade. Frypan, along with Newt, stopped Thomas from beating up Gally, Newt explaining to Thomas that Gally killed Chuck because he was stung by a Griever and half out of his mind. When asked by Jorge if he knew Gally, Frypan replied that Gally was an old friend.

While following Gally to Lawrence's hideout along with Thomas, Newt, Brenda, and Jorge, Frypan was told by Gally that after he, Thomas, Newt, and the other Gladers left him behind in the WCKD lab, he was found still lying on the floor with the spear still in his chest by Lawrence's crew, who, after discovering that he was Immune to the Flare, pulled the spear out of his chest and took him to the Last City to meet Lawrence, who healed Gally of the spear wound and convinced him to join his crew. Frypan was told by Gally that Lawrence's crew was working to stop WCKD. Frypan was warned by Gally not to stare at Lawrence.

Frypan, along with Thomas, Newt, Gally, Brenda, and Jorge, arrived at Lawrence's hideout. Frypan watched on as Lawrence told Thomas that Frypan could stay behind with him, Brenda, and Jorge while he, Newt, and Gally go into the Last City. As Jorge advised Thomas to be careful going with Newt and Gally into the Last City, Frypan advised Gally to take care of Thomas and Newt. Gally agreed and climbed down the ladder into the tunnels, with Thomas and Newt following suit.

At night, at Lawrence's hideout, Frypan, along with Thomas, Newt, Gally, Brenda, and Jorge, go over plans to use Teresa to get into the WCKD Tower. Thomas was reluctant to use Teresa to get into the WCKD Tower. Newt reacted violently and aggressively to Thomas' reluctance, screaming at him for still having feelings for Teresa. Remorseful over lashing out at Thomas, Newt apologized before leaving.

The next night, while Thomas and Gally went into the Last City to capture Teresa, Frypan, along with Newt, Brenda, and Jorge, went to an abandoned church. Thomas and Gally took Teresa to an abandoned church where Frypan, Newt, Brenda, and Jorge were. Frypan watches on as Teresa tells him, Thomas, Newt, and Gally that Minho was in Sub-Level-3 with the Immune children. Thomas convinced Teresa to remove their trackers.

After getting his and Gally's trackers removed by Teresa, Frypan wiped the back of his neck with a cloth. Gally remarked to Frypan that Teresa enjoyed removing trackers, prompting Frypan to agree with him. Frypan, along with Gally, were approached by Newt, who gave them WCKD soldier overall uniforms and face-masking helmets.

Frypan climbed up a crane while Thomas, Teresa, Newt, and Gally went to the WCKD Tower, Brenda went to a parking lot to steal a bus, and Jorge returned to the Right Arm's hideout.

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

Frypan, along with Brenda, and the Immune children, discovered that Lawrence had gone to destroy the walls of the Last City. Jorge and Vince arrived with a berg to pick them up. They flew into the city to get Thomas, Newt, Minho, and Gally in a Berg.

Frypan, along with Brenda, Jorge, Vince, and the Immune children, were waiting at the berg when they heard Teresa telling Thomas that his blood can cure Newt like it had done for Brenda. Minho and Gally arrived, asking where the serum would be. Frypan, along with Minho, Gally, and Brenda, arrived at the train station where they saw that Thomas had killed Newt. While Thomas walked off to the WCKD Tower, Frypan kneeled at Newt's dead body along with Minho, with Gally and Brenda watching on.

Frypan, along with Minho, Gally, and Brenda, return to the berg where Jorge flies them, Vince, and the Immune children 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 managed to throw him onto the ramp of the berg, allowing Frypan to pull him onboard with the help of Minho, Gally, Brenda, and Vince. Teresa fell to her death when the WCKD Tower collapsed. As Jorge flew Frypan, Thomas, Minho, Gally, Brenda, Vince, and the Immune children away from the tower, Frypan helps Gally bandage Thomas' wound along with Minho, Brenda, and Vince.

Sometime later, Frypan, along with Thomas, Minho, Gally, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, Aris, Sonya, Harriet, the Right Arm, and the Immune children, arrived at the Safe Haven. Frypan was cooking when he sees Thomas, who had woken up, approaching him. Frypan watched on as Thomas and Minho hugged. At night, while at the campfire, Frypan, along with Thomas, Minho, Gally, Brenda, Jorge, Aris, Sonya, Harriet, the Right Arm, and the Immune children, listened to Vince give a speech.

Frypan asked everyone at the Safe Haven if they wanted the food he had cooked. Frypan went to the Memorial Rock and engraved Winston's name on it. Frypan was sitting with Minho, Gally, Brenda, Jorge, Vince, Aris, Sonya, Harriet, the Right Arm, and the Immune children at the campfire when Thomas approached them and sat down with them. The next day, while Frypan was sleeping, Thomas went to the Memorial Rock and engraved Teresa's name on it. Thomas walked along the beach, stopped walking, looked at the ocean and the ship, took out the serum, looked at it, and looked out into the ocean in the distance.

Physical Appearance & Personality[]

In The Fever Code, Frypan was described as being a tall boy with 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 be the keeper of all the cooking.

In the films, Frypan is depicted as a stocky boy with dark skin, short hair, and no beard at all.

In the book, Frypan seems to be a nice and friendly character. Chuck mentions several times that Frypan hates it when the Gladers raid his fridge and take all the food. In the films, Frypan is kind, and a quiet person. He was compassionate, and cared for his friends.
