Character Bio

Melvin Frohike photo
Melvin Frohike was born circa 1953 in Pontiac, Michigan. Prior to joining The Lone Gunmen, he was an acclaimed tango dancer in Miami. On giving up the tango, he toured the country with hippies before founding Frohike Electronics Corp, specializing in cable pirating hardware.

In 1989 at a consumer electronics show in Baltimore, where his company had a trade stand, he met John Fitzgerald Byers and Richard Langly and subsequently they formed a group publishing The Lone Gunmen newsletter. Frohike has a deep attraction for Dana Scully. In his first appearance he was taking photographs of her, ogling her and calling her “tasty”. Whilst this attraction seemed rather lustful at first, he has shown genuine affection for Scully (and Fox Mulder) on numerous occasions, being the first person to bring her flowers after she returned from her abduction in the episode One Breath, and rescuing her from the attentions of Morris Fletcher in Three of a Kind. All three of the Lone Gunmen die in the X-Files episode Jump the Shark. They intentionally lock themselves in a closed hallway; this saves thousands from a terrorist created plague. Walter Skinner arranges for them to be interred at Arlington National Cemetery.
