Biography

Francis and his brothers grew up in an Irish Catholic home. He is looked down upon by his brothers, who consider him a hypocrite for his police career; Patrick McReary remarks that "[Francis is] just as crooked as we are — moreso"; Francis affords his brothers similar disdain for their open criminality. He initially wanted to become a priest, but as his brother Packie recalls, he had to abandon that ambition after being caught cheating on his final test to be a priest; he also had a tendency to take money from the donation plate as an altar boy.

Francis tells Niko that his philosophy to cleaning up the streets of Liberty City is "one percent at a time" — assassinate small-time crooks and drug dealers one by one, to "improve" the city without involving the legal system. This may be mere self-justification on Francis' part — the tasks he sets for Niko are overwhelmingly focused on covering up his own misdeeds. Francis is implied to have illicit tastes, which go unspecified but which may be related to drugs and/or prostitution, as he orders the assassination of a drug-dealing pimp who is implied to be personally inconveniencing him.

Events of Grand Theft Auto IV

Francis first meets Niko Bellic during a publicity spot with Manny Escuela. Later in the game, he calls Niko and arranges a meeting at Castle Gardens, where he reveals that he knows of Niko's criminal activity in Liberty City; Niko agrees to work for Francis in exchange for his turning a blind eye to Niko's other crimes.

Francis first orders the death of a blackmailer who possesses incriminating photographs, and then the death of Tom Goldberg, a lawyer who has evidence against Francis. He has Niko kill a drug-dealer and pimp in the North Holland projects, and then the dealer's accomplice, who is threatening to talk to the police about McReary.

Blood Brothers

After Francis' brother Derrick returns from Ireland, Derrick intends to expose Francis' corruption out of spite, something Francis could not accept as he intends to become the Commissioner of the Liberty City Police Department. He orders Niko to kill Derrick during a meeting he has arranged with his brother. Niko either chooses to follow Francis' orders, or goes against them and spares Derrick's life by killing Francis instead. Either choice will end Niko's career with Francis, although Niko can choose to exploit Francis' guilt in future if he survives. Be sure not to get off the building or wait too long then the meeting will be over

Mission appearances

GTA IV

Wanted level reduction

If Francis is spared in Blood Brothers, the player can call him and have him clear their Wanted level. Although this can be done multiple times, the wait required between calls is thus far undetermined — calling too soon after the last successful call will merely redirect to Francis' answering machine. Once the player finishes the story missions, Francis' ability will not be available. Although after you have finished the main storyline, you can receive the three-star removal, by dating Kiki Jenkins, once you have her up to about 80%.

Trivia

  • If Niko kills Francis, his gravestone (after the mission Undertaker) reads: "Here Lies Francis McReary Brave Honest Shot Dead"
  • Francis drives a black Landstalker, seen in the beginning cutscene of Blood Brothers
  • As Francis is an LCPD officer, his record is not listed in the LCPD Database.
  • In the mission I'll Take Her..., Gerald McReary says that he and Francis were never real close, but that "he'll miss him" (if Francis is dead).
  • Sometimes if Niko starting to get chase by police with Packie, he will often shout "Look Frankie's Boy!".
  • It seems Francis is unlikeable by most character. Even Kate, his own sister, think he would die earlier (if Francis is killed at Blood Brothers). Kate also stated that the rest of the family hated him, stating that he's to cop to be a gangster and too gangster to be a cop.

Biography

Francis with his pink X-wing

Francis, a male Wookiee bounty hunter,[1] joined Renegade Squadron during the Galactic Civil War—the war between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic—sometime between 0 BBY and 4 ABY.[2] Renegade Squadron was a recently created Alliance elite fighting unit made up of criminals and pirates, which was co-led by General Han Solo and Commander Col Serra, a pair of smugglers-turned-Rebel officers.[1]

Francis was given the nickname "Francis the pink Wookiee" due to the fact that his armor was painted pink. While a member of Renegade Squadron, in which he engaged in battles both in and out of a cockpit, he flew a T-65 X-wing starfighter and fought in the Battle of Endor.[2] After the battle and the death of Galactic Emperor Palpatine aboard the second Death Star, Renegade Squadron was disbanded by its members so that they could return to their underworld lives.[1]

Equipment

During his tenure with Renegade Squadron, Francis used a DL-44 heavy blaster pistol in firefights. He also flew a T-65 X-wing starfighter—which was also painted pink—in space battles.[2] Francis wore a pink eye patch of his left eye, similar to that of fellow Wookiee bounty hunter, Snoova.[1]

Behind the scenes

"Viva la Francis!"
―Jeff Pena, talking about Francis

In the video game Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron, it is possible to play as Francis through the game's character personalization feature. Francis was created by Jeff Pena, the producer of Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron. He was one of Pena's favorite customizable characters in the game, and was so popular with the development team that he was incorporated in Renegade Squadron's press demo and Electronic Entertainment Expo presentation.[2]
