Fran's beginning licenses are close to several Quickenings. Even though Fran's default weapon is a bow and she has bow licenses already learned, Fran and Balthier have the longest bow action time.
In the original version, Fran has low stats compared to the other party members and is the only one to not have a particular stat in which she excels. Fran's Magick Power is particularly low, second-lowest to Balthier. Her Vitality is also low, being the second-lowest after Basch, and her Strength is the second-lowest after Penelo. Her MP is higher than Basch's and Balthier's, even though it is the lowest of the three female party members. After winning a boss battle the currently alive members of the active party perform a victory pose depending on what weapon they are equipped with.
In the Zodiac versions, her stats have been tweaked and she now has the highest Vitality out of all the party members at level 99.
Fran equips bows as weapons, suits as armor and masks as accessories. Her skills vary, including different status inflicting ones to some White Magick related spells like Dispelga. Her Quickening, Gaze of the Void, removes all buffs on enemies. It can be obtained by defeating Exodus.
