The father of the first Heroes Unite Commander, Natasha Lawler, Franklin was responsible for drafting his daughter into the military. He selected her for her Black Ops team as well as placing her undercover with the UN Peacekeepers and her position as the HU Commander.
He is in overall control of both the Armoured Soldier Program and the Heroes Unite Initiative, and so when he discovered that his daughter had broken her orders and was acting rogue, he demoted her from her position and took the role of Commander himself and instructed a team led by Tazer to oppose her plans against Energize and relieve her of her position.
General Lawler was killed by gunshot by the black suited Energize
