It’s hard being an Ork out there, especially when you were blessed with a face only a cheese grater could truly appreciate. How Francis Gray managed not only to survive, but thrive in the competitive taxi market of 2070s Seattle is a mystery all on its own. It might have something to do with his bubbly personality, with the constant of insults and rants that echo from within his ill-kept yet famously robust Ford Americar. Or with the loaded shotgun that sits comfortably in front of the passenger seat. Regardless of what first impression the loud-mouthed Ork might make though, he’s a rock solid driver and been through enough scraps to get you safely to the other side.

You Ride For Free: At Loyalty 4, cab rides with Francis are always covered by your lifestyle, even if it's street.
