Franklson is a Schwarzwald scholar who is the inventor of the Magic Gear and the forerunner of Mechanics.


SPOILER WARNING: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Franklson wanted to prove the excellence of science to those who only believed in arcane magic and sought to control the power of magic through science. While studying the Juperos Ruins, he discovered an ancient machine and fused it with the power of magic, giving birth to magic machinery. The study of magic machinery has been progressing since, but it still isn't too well-known outside of Juno.

After the events of Surt's resurrection, Franklson went back to Juperos to do more research on the fusion of science and magic. One day, while exploring Juperos, he stepped on a marker between two mechanical statues and unleashed an energy that absorbed what he had learned and gathered. The energy gave him a newfound knowledge, but in return it took away his body and his humanity along with it.

Some time later, Franklson encounters a lost adventurer and shares his plight with the adventurer. He reveals that he does not regret the knowledge that he has gained, but wishes to have his body back as all that is left of him is a spirit forever trapped within the Juperos Ruins. He perceives that he is fated to live and die in Juperos.[1]
