Franz is the former husband of Lise Hampton.
Franz married Lise sometime before 2258 and they were expecting a child.; however, he proved to be unfaithful and was having an affair. Lise filed for divorce but as Franz beat her to it and since he was an "Earthborn" the Earth appointed courts awarded Franz custody of their daughter. He remarried shortly afterwards (presumably with the person he was having the affair with) and according to Lise, he planned to raise their daughter without telling her about her biological mother.
