Hodai Franklin

Hodai Franklin is a character who appears in the Tegami Bachi series. Twelve years ago, he was one of the suvivors of the airship crash that occured on the Day of the Flicker. He lost one of his eyes along with some of his memories as a result of looking at the artificial sun during that event. He then lost his other eye as a result of a disease. Afterwords the emotionally and physically scarred man retreated to Amsterdam Goodbyes, where he's lived ever since.

Background

Twelve years ago on the Day of the Flicker, a young Hodai and his best friend Kamahan Negish were selected to manage the pressure on the phantom gas on the airship. The two young men were very happy about their job, but Hodai later noted that he and the six others were only sent because they were "disposible." As Hodai was visibly admiring the man-made sun, it suddenly went out. The terrified young man continued to stare at the shape of the man-made sun, hearing the word "mother" in his head. Hodai remembered later of how the eye seemed to look at him. Blinded in his left eye, Hodai was carried away to safety by Kamahan, who later died in his arms when the airship crashed.  Afterwords the emotionally and physically scarred man retreated to Amsterdam Goodbyes, where he's lived ever since before meeting Aria Link. 

Plot

Aria Link and Nice arrive in Amsterdam Goodbyes to deliver one of the many undelivered letters to Hodai Franklin. The scarred man shouts at Aria to go away and rants about the Day of the Flicker. Curious about knowing the truth about that day, Aria continues to appraoch him. Hodai reacts violently and hits her on the head. After some consolation, Hodai allows the actiing letter bee to read him his letter and he tells her about his experience with the Day of the Flicker. Hodai later warns Aria that her friend who lost his heart that day would never be whole again.

Trivia

1. "Franklin" means a landowner of free but not noble birth in the 14th and 15th centuries in England.

  • It may be an altered word of "Franken" from "Frankenstain", which refers to his horrible appearance.
