Personality: Francis has a lot of repressed emotions, mostly sadness and anger because of all the violence he saw in Nepleslia's mega-cities. His father, an ex ID-SOL marine and Nepleslian police officer has instilled in him a sense of right and wrong, but this was somewhat distorted by the criminal activities that were commonplace in his neighborhood as a child. Francis' childhood also taught him that friends are hard to come by so the ones you have you hold onto. Francis is a team player. He is also very willing to please because he was not given much approval by his father as a child. Therefore, he is very determined to get the tasks he is given done successfully.
Francis has an ID-SOL father, Jack Lasalle, which is why he is so stocky. Francis never knew his mother, because she died in childbirth. He has an older half-sister on his mother's side, Annette, who is a sergeant in the Nepleslian police.
Francis grew up in a lower-class area of a Nepleslian mega-city. He had an average childhood,and was raised around the gang violence common in those areas. Francis had one friend in the world in his early years; his older sister Annette, or Annie. He adores his sister to this day. His father Jack did not give him much attention as a child, so Francis grew to be accustomed to solitude. This is where he developed an avid love of reading. It took him away from the pain of lower-class life. As he grew up, he managed to make a few other friends, most of whom he is still friends with to this day.
During his teenage years, Francis got swept up into the crime that surrounded him for financial reasons. He started work as a messenger for a small local gang at age 14. At 15, he started working on the illegal slave trade in addition to running messages. At 16, his life of crime cost Francis. While he was running a message to his CO in the gang, a firefight sprung up around him in the middle of a street. He drew his .45, fired two shots, and then a car exploded next to him, claiming his left eye, ear, hand, and leg below the knee. He also recieved burns and scars. Francis had cybernetics implanted to replace his missing body parts, and corrective surgery to heal the burns and scars, which still remain to some extent today. The gang that Francis fought against consisted mainly of Yamatians, which left a distinct dislike for the Yamatians in his head. For the next five years, Francis struggled to pull out of his criminal past, but eventually overcame this obstacle.
As an escape from his past, he joined the NSMC at age 21. His boot camp and basic training was the average experience. He had a difficult time making friends among his classmates, but this gave him determination that he used to drive him to do his best in training. He graduated in the top 25% of his class.
