Gron Takaliken, also known as the Jester or the Green Guy, is one of the murderers in The Return to Freddy's 3, while the other being Vincent.
Gron makes his only appearance in the minigame dubbed CD+ from The Return to Freddy's 3, where you play as him inside a green room with Lockjaw's parts (on rare occasions, they will be Golden Lockjaw's parts) on the ground and a child hanging on the wall by a hook bleeding.
- At first many people thought that Gron was a new animatronic, due to his odd design.
- He was often theorized to be Vigo, but with a complete body instead of the snake-like design.
- The theme that plays in CD+ is a reversed mix of of the Glitch Minigame and Stage 01 themes from FNaF 3.
- A fanmade name is Jester. However, when the TRTF3 and TRTF4 pages were separate pages, there were two songs, both called "Green Guy's Theme", and in the newspaper in TRTF4, it mentions Gron as being an insane entertainer/jester, leading to the name. In addition, Gron is referred to in the games files as "jester".
In the Night 5 minigame, where you play as Vincent. He appears in a room with an hallucination of his younger self and the Golden Lockjaw suit, at the opposite end of the room. Gron is standing in front of him, smiling, and then walks toward the middle of the room, most likely to meet with Vincent, though a white object is in the middle, which causes him to slip inside the Golden Lockjaw suit. He then looks around for a few moments, before getting crushed by it, and blood pouring out of it, and shaking.
- If you look in the mouth of the Golden Lockjaw suit, there is no corpse, and there are endoskeleton teeth inside it, something that the springlock suits did not have.
Gron first appeared in the first teaser game for The Return to Freddy's 5, but his appearance is minor. He appears in The Machine's room along with Vincent, sabotaging it.
This time the player gets to play as Gron, and uses W, A, S, D to move, and space to shoot. In this teaser game titled "Protect Your Son", Gron appears in a room with four open hallways on the top bottom left and right, with the child from The Return to Freddy's 3-4 in the middle of the room, crying, while Hybrid Lockjaws are moving across the screen. The goal of the minigame is to shoot the Hybrid Lockjaws, so they do not touch Gron (oddly, if they touch the child, nothing happens.). If they do touch Gron, Hybrid Lockjaw will come on screen and be shaking violently, while screams of pain, moans, crying, and reversed music play in the background.
In the "Happy Fun Times..." minigame Gron will appear to cover BFP's eyes, in horror upon seeing the Torture suit.
In the "The past..." minigame, where you control his son, Charles, Charles walks in front of his office, as Gron watches over him, before shutting the blinds over his window.
In "The horrrible truth..." minigame, Gron is seen entertaining three children, when his son approaches him, and puts Golden Lockjaw's head on him, causing the mechanisms inside to make him bleed. The minigame ends with Golden Lockjaw's jumpscare.
In the "December 23th" minigame, Gron, while still having a sane mind, is seen driving what is presumably his family, when Alison rams his car to Gron's, leaving himself and his son the only survivors of the car crash, and possibly explaining how Gron became insane. The next day, in the December 24 minigame, Gron, after losing his sanity, is seen celebrating Christmas with his son. While his son is playing with his toys, Gron gives him a present: a fedora.
In the "Father & Son" minigame where you play as BFP, he is seen standing in the corner, smiling. When touching him, blood will cover most of the room and painful moaning will play.
In an unnamed minigame, where you play as him. In this minigame Gron appears with his arms out stretched and tounge sticking out. What sounds like laughing akin to a jester can be heard in the background, and could possibly be Gron himself laughing, considering he has been referred to as a Jester of some type. This minigame is 2D, meaning you can only move left and right. The goal of the minigame is to catch as many severed body parts (eyeballs, arms, heads with thier jaws ripped.) as possible, which will add to a score at top. If too many are missed though, Gron will kneel to the ground and begin crying. After a few seconds, he will open his eyes, look straight upward while grabbing his jaw, and tear it off. Then Torture Golden Lockjaw's head will jumpscare the player, ending the minigame.
Note: This info is NO LONGER canon to the TRTF Story, however this is what it was originally meant to be back when TRTF 5 was still in development, so it is still noteworthy
During 1943, Gron used to work alongside his chilhood friend Vincent on an unnamed facility that manufactured spare parts for animatronics as well as showbiz animatronics. On December 23th, Gron was getting ready to his two sons along with his wife to celebrate his oldest son's birthday on GoldieParaDiner. However, during their trip to the restaurant, the family had a horrible car accident with a semi truck packed with oil tanks. This accident ended up with Gron's wife and youngest son dying, leaving him with his insanity lost and only one severely injured son.
Several days later, Gron and Vincent were finding Alison out to be a little suspicious that day. Their boss appeared to be looking around in paranoia as if he felt he was being watched, or wanted to see if the coast was clear. As the boss implemented a secret pin number using the wall tiling, the wall opened a secret passage way. As Gron and Vincent snuck and followed the boss while being unnoticed, they saw the lives of many other employees being enslaved, whipped, beat up, forced to work and worship a false idol attached to The Machine called as the "Torture Device". Gron and Vincent then headed to the Machine, and tried their best to sabatoge it in order to stop the slavery and torture given to the employees. Although the Machine appeared to have stopped from the damage, the manufacturing device started to bring the Animatronics to life and maked them extremely aggresive and violent. After Gron luckily memorized the passcode and locked the wall with his best friend, they decided to never come back to ever work again.
When Fazbear Entertainment bought the factory and took ownerships of GoldieParaDiner, Gron took the job as a showbiz jester that entertained the children at the place, while his best friend worked there too as a money handler. During his working sessions, Gron would have constant feelings for killing others due to various flashbacks of the car incident going on his mind. One day he tried to lead 5 children backstage in order to kill them, but Vincent stopped him from doing so and snapped Gron out of his sences. Days later, Gron bringed his son Tyler to the restaurant so he could have some fun. After having various arguments on his head about if his son should either live or die, he finally came to the conclution that his last remaining son should die. And so, he lured Tyler to the hidden bunker, grabbed the nearest chains and hooks, and started to hang and torture his son. As he was about to grab the Golden Lockjaw/Torture Golden Lockjaw suit and stuff his son inside of it, he accidentally slipped on a piece of trash and felled right into the suit. He was then slowly killed from head to toe, as the sharp knives and needles stabed every part of his body, draining his blood and organs inside out to use it as fuel to power up the Torture suit, bringing him a new and torturous life of pain and suffering.
- In one of the images created by BFPFilms, along with most of the teaser games, the Gron is revealed to be the father of the child who possesed Lockjaw in TRTF 1-4.
- This was later changed however, as in TRTF:TDT revealed him to be the father of the childs seen inside his car, and not the father of the ghost child.
It is revealed that the Jester's real name is Gron. Gron worked at both GoldieParaDiner and Fazbear Inc., alongside one of his close friends, Vincent. On October 29, 1943, they followed their boss, Alison; into a secret room. Inside the secret room they found people enslaved and forced to worship a false idol called the Torture Device. They then headed for Floor 11, where The Machine, which created the Torture suits; was located. The two of them sabotaged The Machine in order to stop the creation of more Torture suits. They then headed back down towards Floor 1, and fled their boss.
On December 23 of the same year, Gron was taking his wife Lynda and his two children Jackson (the younger child) and Charles (the older child) to GPD for an early Christmas celebration. As he was buckling his seatbelt, his wife yells his name and he looks up just in time to see a car aiming right for them. When he was in the hospital, one of Alison's men, disguised as a doctor, unplugs his wife's life support.
He wakes up the next day. The doctors tell him that his wife is dead, and that they will have to send the younger child to a foster family. Charles was old enough to make decisions on his own, and he chooses to stay with his father. When they return to their home, Gron gives Charles an early Christmas present: an old fedora that Gron used to wear. After Charles goes to sleep, Gron writes a goodbye note to his son and heads out towards GPD.
When he arrives at GoldieParaDiner, the owner greets him. Gron then began hallucinating and saw a younger version of himself. It led him to the back room of the building, but Vincent stops him. The hallucinations then return and lead him back again. Gron moved towards the Golden Frankburt Torture suit, and put it on while whispers in his head saying "The Prophecy" grew louder and louder. He pressed the self deploy button to turn on the Torture suit, killing him instantly. He eventually is revived as Golden Lockjaw, and eventually kills Blake by shoving him into the Torture Golden Kitty suit. When Gron realizes that Blake was not Alison, he heads off towards Fazbear Inc., never to be seen again.
