Viera’s Female Warrior
Age: 36 years
A viera warrior, Fran is as much at ease with a sword as she is 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 the viera is far greater than that of humes, 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.
Although Fran has low stats at first, she will the highest vitality among all characters during the latter parts of the game.
Her stats are average at best, which makes her incompatible in fighting at the front line. Although its magic is quite powerful, her MP growth is not that good, so don’t focus on leveling up her magic-based stats.

Quickenings are a deathblow technique. Each character has three quickenings, and will be unlocked by unlocking them in the license board.
All effects deal massive damage to enemies. As the level goes up, the cartridge use will rise like 1→2→3.
This 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 to opponents because of the Foebreaker’s high attack power.
Fran can have stable damage output by using bullets that ignores the enemy’s defense and evasion. However, some enemies will have gun resistance during the latter parts of the main story, so its best for Fran to use bombs during these parts.
Also, since Fran has low Charge Time for guns at the start, make sure that you improve her gun charge time consistently.
The Black Mage is also a good job for her, but she will easily run out of MP due to how low it is. Use gambits for Fran in case she may have low MP.
The Red Battlemage make her more versatile than the Black Mage, but her MP hinders her from using the versatility of this job proficiently. Again, using gambits is recommended if you want Fran to be a magic-focused character.
