Nonnie Walker is a character created by Frank. She appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Dangerous Soup".


Nonnie Walker worked at The Wild Boar Restaurant. The restaurant was owned and run by Dr. Vink. Dr. Vink had become famous with his most popular dish: The Dangerous Soup. The soup was beyond delicious and became very popular. It made both the restaurant and Dr. Vink a fortune.

She also worked with Paul, Sly and another girl named Jersey. She and Jersey debated whether or not the soup was worth paying $100 per bowl. She felt it was worth it. Since all the customers seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. She also stopped Jersey from sneaking tastes from customer's bowls.

She was the restaurant's bookkeeper, and she interviewed new applicants applying for open jobs. Then she met Reed Hansen, he came to apply for a job. She told him the restaurant was run by Dr. Vink.

Then she and Dr. Vink showed Reed the kitchen. There she and Dr. Vink persuaded him to try the soup. Reed just loved it and thought it was delicious. He so badly wanted another taste. Then she warned Reed not to get too attached to it. Since Dr. Vink charges $100 per bowl.

After Reed started his job, she was disappointed to see that he always just kept to himself and he didn't ever let anybody help him. She liked him and wanted to become his friend. Also she noticed that every so often an employee in the restaurant would just suddenly quit, and never come back again.

Then one night, she saw Reed tasting the soup when he thought nobody was looking. She lied to Dr. Vink saying that he was just wiping the stove. So Dr. Vink seemed to believe her and Reed was okay.

Reed thanked her for standing up for him. She didn't believe him at first. Since he had been so self-centered and such a loner. Then he apologized to her, explaining that he always had to do things on his own. So he hasn't been used to people being nice to him. She now believed him and they became friends.

Then she and Reed heard a co-worker named Jersey screaming. It was coming from a small dark freezer in the kitchen. When Jersey came out she and Reed could see that Dr. Vink had done something to scare her. So she and him asked Dr. Vink what was really going on.

So Dr. Vink disclosed the origin of the infamous soup to she and Reed. It turned out that Dr. Vink had somehow captured a Gargoyle from a tribe of savage warriors. It used illusions to make its victims become scared. Then it would extract a green elixir. The elixir was fear itself. Which was a powerful and tasty emotion. This green elixir was used to flavor the dangerous soup to give it delicious and powerful flavor. Also when drank the elixir would give to the person their victims strength and powers.

She was shocked to hear this and upset that it was the reason all the employees keep on quitting. It was because he had been scaring the ingredient out of them. She stood back as Reed went into the dark room, to be tested on what scared him. She couldn't see what it was. But she could tell that he was really getting scared.

Then she couldn't take it anymore. So she opened the door to the dark room. Then the Gargoyle escaped! Now the gargoyle was free to cast its illusions anywhere and on anyone. So Dr. Vink left to recapture it. Soon she and Reed saw frightening illusions. She saw a snake. Then a gust of wind blew her into the small dark room, and she got trapped inside. Reed was now seeing the illusion of deceased abusive Uncle.

When she was inside the small dark room, her greatest fear was used against her: claustrophobia. Then the walls began to close in on her. She was terrified, crying and screaming for help. Then when she and Reed finally faced their fears, the illusions finally vanished.

Then he went into the small room to speak to her. Reed told her that since they faced their fears, the illusions were now gone. So Dr. Vink would not be making anymore dangerous soup.

Then suddenly Dr. Vink called to them from the doors eyehole. Dr. Vink told them they were wrong because the gargoyle was recaptured, and it still knew what scared them. She and Reed watched in horror as the wall slid open and the Gargoyle came back out. Dr. Vink told her and Reed that he planned to stay in business for a really long time. This meant that She and Reed could be held prisoner, until they were scared to death!
