Francois is Ryusui's faithful and extremely talented butler whose services were well sought out and coveted before the Petrification. They are demonstrated to be a highly competent worker and a talented chef.


Francois is a short person of very petite build and ambiguous gender. They have a round face with sharp eyes and often sport a serious expression, and they have a very small nose and a mouth adorned with dark lipstick. They have somewhat short blonde hair arranged in neat corkscrew curls. Their stone markings are two burst shapes on the back of their hands, which they often wear gloves over.

Francois is most typically seen in their butler uniform; a dark blazer with striped cuffs and padded shoulders, a striped sash, a light colored ascot, medium length and slightly flared pants, and light colored boots with tall heels.

They have a star like scar on their arm after being revived. It disappears after their second revival. They soon adorned war paint in reflection of their stone markings, during Tsukasa's revival.



They are extremely loyal to Ryusui, as shown by him being their first concern after being depetrified. They are always calm and composed, showing emotion very rarely. They seem to take great pride in their job, and would never compromise on quality.


Age of Exploration Arc

They are depetrified by Nikki and Yuzuriha after Senku and Ryusui decide they want a chef. Almost immediately, they searched for Ryusui and for two days traveled to his location. They started to cook and created bread that was delicious, all those who consumed broke into tears of joy.

They opened their own restaurant.

Treasure Island Arc

They are one of the many petrified by Ibara and his forces along with the crew of Perseus.

They are later freed by Senku to aid him in his plans.

During the final battle, they are ultimately petrified again by Ibara. However, they are freed by Senku to once more to aid in tending to the others. They are tasked with cooking and they casually tell Taiju and Amaryllis that Senku once married to Ruri after remarks on the status of Chrome and Ruri are made.[4]

New America City Arc

When the mentions of Senku's residual scars are made, Gen rallies every modern timer to recreate their scar using paint. They recreated their previous star-shaped scar, stating it will serve as a symbol, declaring the day they removes will be when the threat of Whyman is vanquished.[5]

They accompany the crew of the Perseus in the journey to depetrify everyone across the world. They re-created a bar where they are helping the restoring of alcohol and beverages.

They listen to the story of Matsukaze and gives him an alcoholic cocktail to ease his worries after the story stresses him.[6]

They are pleased when land is spotted.[7]

Afterwards, they make burgers out of the dead alligators that the warriors defeated, something the crew was happy on.[8]

Skills and Abilities

Master Chef

They are capable of making long-lasting rations and delicious food. On top of that, they know how to procure high-quality food based on ingredients. If the ingredients are contaminated, they will not use them, as seen as when they allow Suika to keep the pig as a pet once the pig was soaked with oil before.


They were able to travel from the former Tsukasa Empire to Ishigami Village with little to no rest. It is indicated that their stamina seems suitable to do long-term walking rather than running.
