|A viera warrior, Fran is as much at ease with a sword as she is with her bare hands. Her proficiency with a blade is matched only by her skill with a wrench, as she also handles the maintenance of Balthier’s airship, the Strahl. The lifespan of a viera is far greater than that of Hume, and many secrets lie hidden in her long history. Yet the divide of race does nothing to diminish the bond of trust between her and Balthier.
Fran is voiced by Rika Fukami (JP) and Nicole Fantl (EN)
Although Fran has low stats at first, she will eventually gain the highest vitality among all characters in the later parts of the game.
Her stats are average at best, which makes her incompatible with fighting on the front line. Although her magic is quite powerful, her MP growth is not so good, so don’t focus on leveling up her magic stats.
1) Physical jobs
Foebreaker is one of the most suitable jobs for Fran because of her high Vitality. Besides augmenting her strengths in combat, she can also deal heavy damage through the Foebreaker’s high attack power.
As a Machinist, Fran can have stable damage output by using bullets that ignore the enemy’s defense and evasion. However, some enemies will have gun resistance in the latter parts of the main story, so its best for Fran to transition to using bombs. Also, since Fran has low Charge Time for guns at the start of the game, make sure that you consistently improve her gun charge time.
2) Magick jobs
Black Mage is also a good job for Fran, but she will easily run out of MP due to her low pool. Use gambits for Fran in case she runs low on MP.
The Red Battlemage job makes Fran even more versatile than Black Mage, but her MP hinders her from using the job’s magic efficiently. Again, using gambits is recommended if you want Fran to be a magic-focused character.
