Not much is known about Frank's past, as his story gets different every time he retells it. What people have been able to piece together is that he was born in a very poor area, and that his father beat the everloving crap out of him. When he was sixteen he was already involved in drugs, gang violence, and had been arrested for trying to set fire to the house of a kid who stole his lunch money. Frank ran away from home that same year, hitched a ride to the train station and his family never saw him again. He was headed for the place he'd always wanted to go, New York City. As soon as he got off the train, he got in trouble again. He hadn't really considered how he'd make it in New York with no money, and he didn't know anybody... After being arrested for breaking and entering, he met a man named Louie, and while their first interaction was a brawl over prison food, they started to respect each other more and more. A few years later, Frank and Louie were best buddies and had worked their way up as mobsters for a prominent crime family. Frank doesn't like talking about what he did for a living, but he was a suspect in several suspicious deaths of rival gang members. Everything seemed to be going well for Frankie, until the day Louie was killed. Frank left the family that same day, and disappeared for a few years. No one knew what he was doing, until he suddenly popped back out of nowhere in South America. Frank had built up a reputation as a reliable arms dealer, and soon started making money. He got more and more rich as he traveled the world, buying up weapon stockpiles from all over the world, and reselling them in new war zones, mostly in Africa, South America, the middle east and eastern europe. Whenever asked about how he ended up in south Zagoria, he will tell a different story, but due to his history it can be assumed he was on his way to pick up an old USSR weapons stockpile, when things went awry.
