Franklin was born and raised in the small town of Gorka where he was raised on his families small farm on the edge of town. Naturally his father was a farmer and his mother worked intown selling the things that came from the farm such a chicken meat and some of there crops. Upon coming of age at 18 years old Franklin joined the Chenarus Defense force also known as the CDF. While Franklin doesn't care much about politics he dose know that he joined the CDF to better himself as a man and serve his country. When the outbreak started Franklin tried to head to one of the major cities to try and get evacuated but it didn't happen militaries domestic and non domestic seemed to have halted anyone from leaving so Franklin turned inland and made his way north hoping to avoid much of the infected and now desperate people. Nowadays Franklin roams chenarus just trying to live day by wither it be hunting in the fields or roaming cities hoping to sneak by the infected in search of even a single can of peaches. Franklin hopes things improve soon in chenarus but he doesn't want things to go back to the way they where he wants a peaceful chenarus in which he can live life to the fullest.
