Francine is Orion’s nanny and most trusted confidant. Like Eagen, she is a very close friend of the family, and has a unique relationship with the boy. Her young-at-heart and fun-loving disposition makes it easy for Orion to connect with and confide in Francine, usually when they are playing their favorite game of Hide-and-Seek in the expansive woods behind their home. Understanding the danger at hand, she accompanies Eagen on the search for the boy, in hopes to find him before he is forever lost.
The combination of her overweight figure and the motherly looks administered by her warm, green eyes makes Orion feel at peace and like she is the most motherly person in his life.
