Fergee, known for his distinctive battle cry "Easy the Ferg," was a mentally subnormal but incredibly strong petty criminal who sought refuge from the Judges of Mega-City One by hiding out underground in the ruined 'Undercity'. There he became the ruler of the population of mutants and outcasts that lived on the banks of the polluted Ohio River: the "King of the Big Smelly."
He was discovered by Judge Dredd, who beat him in hand-to-hand combat and pressed him into service in the rebellion against the tyrant Judge Caligula. Surprisingly relishing the chance to be a hero, a gravely injured Fergee ultimately sacrificed his own life to kill Judge Cal, hurling both himself and his foe from the top of the Statue of Judgement.
Dredd had giant memorial statues of Fergee erected throughout the city to commemorate his sacrifice, and there is an annual Fergee Memorial Day.
