I am Aunt Lydia, and this is the Red Center. Fertile women are housed here between assignments. My job is basically to beat women in to submitting to their objectification as walking uteruses using brainwashing and physical abuse. So basically I'm just a great person.
Right now, my name is Offred because I belong to Fred. I used to have a name and a life and a family, although all of that was stripped away because I'm not barren like most women nowadays. In the Gilead, my life's purpose is to produce children for the elite, although I'm determined to find reunite with my family!
I'm Fred, aka the Commander, and I sleep in this here bed with Offred while pretending that I'm sleeping with my wife. Sometimes I like to play scrabble with Offred because my wife is kind of frigid... I seem like a good guy but I'm really a snake who helped create this society that enslaves women according to my sparknotes summary
