Function Order: Te-Si-Ne-Fi
Frank is able to remain detached and attentive to his job, even when he has suffered a tremendous personal loss; he sheds no tears at the funeral of the woman he loves, but instead remains on guard and proactive in chasing down those who killed her. Though he hates Amalia, and finds heir insulting, he brainstorms with her to figure out what’s going on, who is responsible, and allows her to look at his murder board. He hears her about on her abilities and uses that information to help him pursue and detain Maladie, whom he insists will receive ‘true justice’ according to the law, and not the revenge of the police – he threatens anyone who touches her with his own personal punishment. Frank keeps a cool head in intense situations; when he finds Maladie threatening his boss, he tries to talk her into giving him up, by offering a compromise (she will release him; he will take back everything bad he said about her, and then retire from the Force). Frank is dependable and detailed, amassing large amounts of information about crimes to allow him to identify ‘staged’ murder scenes immediately – he knows a body has been moved and a message scrawled on the wall that does not match the other crime scenes, and demands to know the truth of those who moved the body. He arrests and interrogates people, but sometimes delves into unorthodox methods to ensure they remain in jail (he can’t arrest them for threats and harassment, but he can let them assault him and arrest them for that!). Though it takes him a little time, Frank is quite good at piecing together a bigger picture – when Maladie commits suicide at her hanging rather than be rescued, he almost immediately realizes that she wanted them to witness her death, so that she could kill them all; then notices how she intends to do it, and tries to save as many people as he can. Frank has a good heart buried beneath a tough exterior; he has certain lines he won’t let others cross (the abuse or murder of a woman imprisoned, even if she has killed cops in the past). Frank also doesn’t truly hold being left at the altar against his ex-fiancé, because “she had her reasons,” but he does want to know what those are. He almost never shows his feelings.
Enneagram: 8w9 sp/so
Frank is a tough-talking, hard-drinking and unorthodox man that isn’t afraid of anyone or anything, leaps into reckless situations without thought, and doesn’t trust others with information about himself. He admits that his boozing and fighting (which he does for fun; he has made a name for himself as a professional fighter) is probably why Mary did not want to wed him. He’s known for losing his temper, punching people in the face, insulting those in higher positions of authority, and drowning his sorrows in a bottle, which puts his job at risk of termination. He’s aggressive and not afraid to break the rules, but also wants to protect people, even those who don’t deserve it, and is preoccupied with justice. He has a softer and more malleable side that lets him respect Mary’s boundaries and adhere to her wishes (when she says she is tired and asks him to leave, he does so without complaint).
