Back to Characters.
Appearance and personality Edit
Fran has cool water hair and she changes its style every now and then. Fashion.
It takes some time for her to open up to others and therefore seems standoffish at times.
At any given moment, she would probably rather be in the ocean (unless she is already in the ocean, or an equally cool body of water). Although libraries are a close second, due to her affection for books and knowledge.
Hannah Culbert would describe Fran's voice as "sweet as a chorus of thousand of nectar wasps drowning in a vast pool of acid".
Alonia is one of the few members of the Deer clan which she genuinely liked through her training process, as she gave Fran space to decompress and work at a Fran's pace.
Fran is particularly rude to Corbin and has a very low tolerance for his shenanigans. However, she does care for his well being and does try every so often affectionately teases him.
Laika thinks she is "super cool" and Fran considers Laika as one of her best friends.
The Goddess Edit
The Deer Clan Edit
She is not close with the greater beasts of the Deer Clan, as she has not truely embraced their way of life.
Vasenti Johanna Edit
In Estra, she had a crush on Vasenti Johanna, one of the star recruits at the Temple barracks.
Dashing Dawson Edit
She has no affection for this demi-god and makes every attempt to mis-remember his name.
In Festival of Lights Edit
In the library, Fran find some more information about the undertemple and the old gods, finding out that a child of Rayel was held within one of the cells in the undertemple.
While searching for the goddess in the temple palace, she reduces the floor of the goddess's bathroom and utterly destroys it. Fran also freezes Red roof, the unfortunate crow clan attendant, to the floor so the party could question her about the goddess and persuade her not to tell anyone about their search.
When the party visits the forest to get some insight from the greater beasts on the location of The Goddess, Fran reluctantly agrees to head towards the Deer Clan as it is the closest. She jumps and stays in the lake to avoid Cosu and Vesrin, but eventually pops out to argue against Vesrin's aggressive plan to raze the city in order to find the goddess and get rid of Torvah. She succeeds in swaying the two greater beasts to stand down for the moment.
While exploring the hidden cave, she find her mentor's amulet in a pile of white deer attendant robes. She is shaken by a sudden realization on what Alonia could have been and refuses to open up to the other guardians despite their prying.
In Into Avelis Edit
Fran and Corbin held onto each other as they were falling down after Estra collapsed, losing Laika and the Goddess out of sight. They both landed in a desert and to survive the incoming sandstorm, Fran conjured a hut. Inside, she had a panic attack after Corbin touched his boob window to cure himself. When a bulet attacks the hut, the two unsuccessfuly try to defeat it and fall unconcious.
They wake up in damp and slightly floral sand to see they were saved by an Orcish clan. She wakes up to an old orcish woman, Dokella, attending to their wounds and is in disbelief that the world below exists. The Orcs are shocked by her magic abilities. Fran is initially very wary of the Orcs but eventually warms up to them, especially Nodrig the Orcish chief. Traveling through the desert with the orcs, they happen upon a portion of the Estran library. Fran enters the tower with Corbin and picks up some advanced Magic literature that she can study in the future. They find Luell trapped under a bookcase, fail to save her and carry her body out of the tower. They arrive at the oasis and successfully sell their Bulet Jawbone, with some gentle assistance from Dokella.
When the party reunites at the Oasis marketplace, Fran takes Laika aside. She asks Laika why she is still with the Goddess after all the deceit they had uncovered in Estra. Fran felt that the world down below was no better than her life in Estra. Despite Fran's distrust of the goddess, her trust in Laika (and her desire to find the ocean) leads to her decision to remain with the goddess.
While delivering the Estran Books with Nadona, she assists in fending off the Dracolich. After outrunning the monster and taking her turn as watch, Maeri wakes up from a nightmare. The goddess has a small conversation with Fran, about her inability to remember her past lives other than the dream with a golden figure and a bone-crowned creature and acknowleding Fran's distrust in her. At the end of her shift, she wakes the remainder of the party with a gleeful splash of water.
In the Final Chapter Prologue Edit
While swimming in the ocean, Fran discovers a grate on their ship which holds a sertenna.
In the Court of Spears Edit
As a fart cloud, Fran goes on a spying mission. Before the party leaves for the intimate gathering, she hears Lorea threatening Falen. She goes to see what is going on and discovers Lorea pinning Falen against the wall, warning him to stay out of the buisiness of the Court. When Lorea leaves, Fran goes to Falen who warns her to be careful and of his suspicions of Lorea.
After Lord (?) is poisoned, she and the other guardians interrogate the staff and attendees of The Marchioness's dinner party. She remembers that a waiter with grey hair had brought the lord the poisoned drink, and ask's about this staff member. She learns from the staff the this waiter was a part of the street cleaning crew and offered his assistance as one of their own staff members left as she suddenly grew severly ill. Before they return the castle, Fran informs The Marchioness that she should divulge any information that she knows about tonight's events and the pirate attack in order to clear her name. The marchioness agrees to do so and asks them to leave. At the castle, she learns with the rest of the party that there had been a string of poisonings throughout the city, including lord Ngyuenian. The party rushes back out through the city to the lord's estate. As Maeri attempts to heal Ngyuenian, Fran decides to pray to Falen to come and help his friend out. Her prayers are answered as Falen, under the guise of Lord Andolen, appears at Lord Ngyuenian's estate and asks how he can be of assistance. When Maeri ask's for magical support, Fran along with Falen grabs her hand. Although Fran's magic initially is not absorbed by Maeri, Falen successfully uses his own to funnel Fran's magic to boost Maeri's powers.
The next morning, Dodson wake Fran along with the rest of the party to inform them of a visit from the queen. The queen invites the party to a celebration of life. Afterwards, she shares the letters that she stole from Renetta's room with everyone to learn that Renetta was researching something to protect her sister and that Falen had given her a book. Fran and party go visit Falen to figure out what book he gave Renetta and if he could share anything about any potential plans for the Celebration of Life. When combing the library for any information on summoning magic, she discovers a book about resurrection spells and rips out the pages to keep Coquin from learning of these rituals. Fran also attempts to find any information on how to dispell Torva's spell over Falen, but is unable to focus on any of the texts from Estra that may hold such information. When Maeri decides to give the librarian a quest to bring the Estran books back to the Tower of Wivvel in an attempt to bring back the knowledge to Avelis, Fran surrounds her with a halo of light and spark to enhance the goddess's presense.
Three days before the ball, the party decides to follow up on some clues. Before they start, however, they go shopping. For their last stop, Fran unwillingly calls upon Dashing Dawson with his tip jar. She asks him whether he knows how to get rid of caligraphy based spells cast by gods. Dawson shares that the only way to remove these spells are to remove the ink associated with the spell or disrupt the power rune of the caligraphry. He offers the party a deal that he will find some infomation on how to identify these runes in exchange for an item of equal or greater worth. Begrudgingly, the entire party shakes Dawson's hand all at once.
When visiting lord helmshire at his manor, she takes the lead and asks where the new hires came from. He shares that his assistant beatrice took care of the logistics. they move onto questioning his assistant on the origins of the new hires. Throughout the discussion, Beatrice realizes that the green haired half-elven worker she's been having tea with for asking about getting help getting hired at the marchioness mansion now seems to match the description of what the party is looking for.
On Sparrow Island, Fran disguises herself as an old man with Corbin as her pet crow and the other two as his young charges. In exchange for information about what has been happening on the island, Fran challenges Captain (?) to an arm wrestling match, with Corbin's ownership on the betting table. Unfortunately she loses the bet as the Captain overcomes Slake in the match, but still obtains some information.
