PROFILE: Personality: Franziska is a perfectionist. If you like to be mild about it. She seems far too mature for her age, more determined to be the best than anyone can imagine. Since she started raising pokemon she'd never lost a battle that she entered. Should she ever lose a battle, it would only serve to make her more aggressive and she'd probably call the first time 'a fluke'.
Though she seems quite mature, she has a habit of bursting out into redundant insults, particularly with the word 'fool' in them. She also perpetually calls people by their full name, a habit which is probably rather annoying to certain people. Her speaking habits are very precise and proper, otherwise, and she typically refers to Edgeworth as her 'little brother', the fact that he's six years her senior be damned.
She has a love for her whip- using it to train her pokemon and against other trainers whenever they annoy, insult or breathe frustrate her. As a result of her 'whip training' her pokemon have an impressive amount of agility and poise, as they're so used to avoiding the damned thing.
Background: Franziska was raised mainly by her father, Manfred von Karma, her mother never being around (for reasons she has never asked or been told about). The same thing applies for an older sibling of hers, though she knows she has a niece.
The only other child of her age she really ever got to interact with was Miles Edgeworth, who came into her father's care after the DL-6 incident. She actually adored Miles, and looked up to him, but at the same time it seemed as if Manfred preferred Miles to her, and she resented this, which led to her habit of calling him 'little brother' in an attempt to overcome all of this. As she grew older, though she still admired him, especially his ability with pokemon, she began to resent and hate him as it felt that he was always leaving her behind, and she could never be the genius that he was.
Cue her 10th birthday and her turn to get pokemon. She quickly managed to snap up Cyndaquil and immediately became obsessed with becoming a great trainer, in order to surpass Edgeworth. Her main hand in this is a whip which she uses like it was air.
She moved to Blackthorn City when she turned 16, as a new base of operations and to prove her independence from her father and little brother. She still travels Johto training, working up to challenge the Olivine Gym.
