Franklin is one of the members of the Phantom Troupe, an infamous gang of thieves with class A bounties. He ranks fourth in physical power among the Troupe.
Franklin is not "soft"; as he never hesitates to kill, even reveling in combat, and is never hesitant when in difficult situations. He is quick tempered when challenged, but otherwise a fairly composed man.
Franklin is an original member of the Phantom Troupe that hail Meteor City. It is a junkyard city inhabited by outcasts that refuse to be part of society. People who live there do not exist in any official records, and the existence of the city itself is known to very few people. It is also stated in manga and anime that original members of the Phantom Troupe had something to do with the bad blood between the Mafia and those from Meteor City. Why the Troupe left the city is a mystery. Later, the group was joined by more members, in accordance with Chrollo's idea of a group comprising of exactly thirteen members, including himself.
