Character outline[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Fran is a boy with light green hair and eyes of the same color, under both his eyes are blue triangular markings. While in the future, Fran's most defining feature is his large hat shaped like a frog's head, which Belphegor forces him to wear to symbolize him being Mammon's replacement. His main outfit is the Varia uniform from the future.
In the present, Fran is younger by around ten years. Instead of an over sized frog head, he instead wears an equally large apple-shaped hat. His main outfit in the present time is the Kokuyo uniform.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Fran has a calm demeanor despite being very antagonistic towards other people, constantly verbally attacking them without a slightest care of the consequence or who is the one he insult, which results in him being attacked back by several people, particularly Belphegor and Mukuro. Even when he is being punished, Fran hardly shows any indication that he feels hurt despite saying so and it never stops him from continuing to throw insults. In the present, Fran is not much different from his future-self, still retaining his mocking and straightforward behavior to others. However, he still shows childish behavior, normal for a boy his age, such as when he mistook Mukuro and Varia as fairies, showing his childish imagination, or when he was scared upon his first meeting with Vindice whom he mistook as a death god. Strangely, even as a child, he doesn't find the Kokuyo Gang and other Varia members scary and is not intimidated at all by them like people normally would, yet he is scared by Chrome when she got angry at him.
