Escaping with the aide of Lieutenant Emma Sheen, he pilots a Gundam Mk. II back to the AEUG ship Argama. While a refugee on the Argama he steals a Rick Dias and attempts to return to the Titans with the captured machine. Persued by Argama's mobile suits he engages in combat against them, firing on his own son Kamille Bidan in the process. When the Rick Dias is damaged in the battle, Franklin attempts to escape only to be blown out further into space when the mobile suit explodes.
He never cared about his wife being murdered by the Titans and he never cared about his son, Kamille.
All he ever care about is his mistress and making new mobile suits.
