    Frannie is a pretty young woman with delicate features and a flawless, porcelein complexion. She stands at the average height of five feet, three inches and has a decently slim body. She has straight, silky blonde hair that falls to just below her waist which she takes great pride in. Frannie has blue eyes that reflect the general warmth of her nature. Frannie dresses in the typical clothing of an upper class wife and favors soft, romantic colors such as lavender. She also tends to wear clothing that have shades of her husbands favorite colors. If she feels the need to do so, she wields her wand with her right hand.

    1862: Francoise is born as the third child and second daughter of the Beaumont family.
    1866: Oceane is born. The same year, Frannie shows her first signs of magic.
    1869: Anais is born.
    1873: Frannie gets her Hogswarts letter and is sorted into Ravenclaw.
    1877: Frannie scores well enough on her OWLs to return to school.
    1879: Frannies parents introduce her to Franklin Blankenship, a man from a respectable family. The two get on pretty well, to both sets of parents delight. They begin courting soon after her coming out. He proposes pretty quickly, as well.
    1880: Francoise and Franklin get married and settle in Hogsmeade. Frannie proves very fertile as she is soon with child. A girl, Agatha is born later the same year.
    1881: Frannie has another girl, this time named Henrietta.
    1882: Frannie births yet another girl and names her Millicent.
    1883: Frannies father dies.
    1884: In July, Frannie finally gives Franklin a heir, to both of their joy. They name the boy Lionel. Their home is burnt in the fire so they temporarily take up residence with Francoises mother.
