Francis Bowers, also known as Frank Bowers, is a minor antagonist in the 2015 episodic point-and-click game Life is Strange and an anti-hero/protagonist villain in the prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm. He is a punk and drug dealer living in Arcadia Bay and an old "friend" of Chloe Price, the game's protagonist Max Caulfield's best friend.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm
Frank briefly appears at the Mill for a Firewalk concert, being asked by Chloe for pot, and about Damon Merrick.

When two of Damon's associates are chasing down Chloe and Rachel, Frank defends them and blocks the two guys from getting to the girls. He is briefly seen at the end of the episode with Damon himself, both talking to each other before viewing the wildfire that started near town.
Brave New World

Hell is Empty
Frank is coerced by Damon into arranging a meeting with Chloe Price and Rachel Amber concerning the location of Sera Gearhardt, Rachel's biological mother. Frank clearly wants to handle things peacefully, but once Damon stabs Rachel in the arm, Frank defends them by fighting Damon giving Chloe enough time to get Rachel to the hospital.
Despite being severely injured in their previous fight, Frank later confronts Damon again when Chloe goes to rescue Sera. Though the majority of their fight is not seen, Frank is later seen with Damon's knife, heavily implying he successfully killed Damon.
