Franklin has always been a simple man, he had never really seen himself as much more than just a simple hard worker.
He had worked many odd jobs throughout his life. most of which being part-time at fast food joints across the country. He had always lived in his car and never really wanted for much aside from simple commodities such as food, water, electricity and maybe the occasional wifi spot.
His life wasn't all too meaningless, in one of the towns he had stopped to work in there was a diner he applied for. He began working there in just a few weeks. He got to know one of the ladies who worked the registers, her name was Cindy. She had been somewhat of a light and inspiration for him to do something better than just try and get by. He found himself a steady job working full time at a local store. He got a meager salary and he constantly sent that back to his bank, and dabbled a bit into the stock market to try and speed up his earnings.
A few months later he started talking with Cindy quite a bit more, and eventually the two became somewhat inseparable. He wanted to show her new and exciting places, and she had been eager to come along. Together they went in on plane tickets and bought their way to Europe, which they rented a car and traveled all around.
Last Autumn, Cindy had caught very ill from a bit she received while the two were trying to help an injured man. She eventually died in one of the clinics, and was subsequently cremated. The end goal of the two was to explore the Caucasus mountains together. Frank climbed up them and spread her ashes on the peak. He found his way down the other side, expecting to be able to find some transport back home inside of the South Zagoria region, but was met with severe disappointment when he found out that the man they tried to help wasn't an isolated case.
