In A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, more of Freddy's backstory is revealed by the mysterious nun who repeatedly appears to Dr. Gordon. Freddy's mother, Amanda Krueger, was a nurse at the asylum featured in the film. At the time she worked there, a largely abandoned, run-down wing of the asylum was used to lock up entire hordes of the most insane criminals all at once. When Amanda was young, she was accidentally locked into the room with the criminals over a holiday weekend. They managed to keep her hidden for days, raping her repeatedly. When she was finally discovered, she was barely alive and was pregnant with the future Freddy Krueger. Later, in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, it is revealed that the children Freddy killed when still alive were the children of people who had wronged him since childhood (owing to his reputation of being the son of one hundred maniacs). Krueger also has a daughter, Katherine, who seeks to end her father's horrific legacy once and for all.
