Fred Cantrell was an anthropologist and a friend of Hawkman.
Learning of the existence of a bird like race in the hidden city of Feithera, Cantrell expressed a wish to study them and with Hawkman's help gained permission from the Feitherans to live with them for a time. He almost immediately fell in love with the Feitheran woman Osoro and, despite a certain amount of resentment from the Feitherans, married her. The couple had a son, Norda, who eventually became the superhero named Northwind. Fred Cantrell's eventual fate is unknown.
