Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Francis, Conan and Catniss are the main heroes of the game, the first to join the guild (after the tutorial hostess), the first three cats in the Hero Book, and the lead characters in the Main Quest.
  • His "Meh" line and sometimes sarcastic attitudes might be a reference to Francis from the videogame Left 4 Dead.
  • From the first time they meet in the tutorial, Francis becomes the object of Purrcilla's desires.
  • Early in the Call of Heroes 2020 Quest, Francis mysteriously vanishes after being hit by a lightning bolt, and when he later returns, he claims he had been teleported to a land where dogs are fighting against their evil cat oppressors; that land turns out to be Lupinia, the setting for PocApp Studios' new Dungeon Dogs game, which features the story of Francis' travels beyond Catania in its inaugural Release Event 2020 Quest.
  • Francis' Mew Year's Eve party hat is the same one he automatically wore in the Anniversary Event 2017.
  • Francis is highly active on Twitter, as suggested by his line, "Follow me @francisthemage," and currently has over twice as many followers as the official Castle Cats account, @castle_cats, a fact he likes to brag about.
  • Francis also has his own plush toy on the official Castle Cats Store.
