it was passed on, from somebody to Frankenstain
Frankenstain developed it by itself
Whoops, right. I wasn't reading thoroughly enough, haha~ I meant capturing him alive. I just remembered that there is a word "kill" somewhere. XD I had the impression that they were beaten since Gejutel told Rael that if Frank used his power to the maximum, "how could you still stay alive?" Although it doesn't imply right away, I had the impression that Gejutel had seen Frank's truest power and witnessed the destruction he could do.
No problema XD I get your point and you could be right, but I interpreted Gejutel's question as some kind of offence because he knew that Rael couldn't be a match for Franky. I agree that he has seen Frank's true power but again I interpreted it another way XD
He gave a definite description of his powers (that one Clan Leader could kill him, even though it wouldn't be easy), that's why I thought that they were able to capture him together. Franky should be stronger now but I got the impression that Gejutel was quite sure about what he said, regarding the Franky back then.
Now that we know that Frankenstein's Dark Spear consists of many Souls. The main question now is what kind of souls? Because I exclude the idea of human souls being part of the Dark Spear due to two reasons.
1) Rai - he would never allow Frankenstein to live, if he used fellow humans as guinea pigs for his personal gain.
2) The many souls that gives a 'dark aura', this irritates me the most. It definetly can't be human!!
I personally think that the Dark Spear is made of Vampire's souls who were hunted down by Frankenstein himself.
If it was made of vampire's souls, that means there were quite a lot of vampires at that time when he created/obtained his Dark Spear, but it's a good thing at least Franky wont be guilty...
however It was stated that Dr. Crombel's powers are similar to Franky's, if it's a vampire-related thing, isn't it difficult for Crombel to find a large number of them?? the Nobles made a rule that they won't suck human's blood and so it became a forbidden thing and they punish any Noble who would do it, so beings like vampires are just found once every now and then...
and about Dr. Crombel, if he somehow obtained the same kind of power as Franky, maybe he found a way to control/tame this thing?? if so maybe Franky can get this knowledge and tame his dark spear as well...
I'm on chapter 142 of Noblesse and I finally understand why Frankenstein has his name. I'm even more attached to his character now that he's shown his dark side and everything. I'm so excited to see how things unfold from here on out.
I guess that the writer of Noblesse is a fan of Mary Shelley as well.
Also, hoorah to my first Noblesse forum post!
Hey precious, welcome to Noblesse section...another Noblesse reader . Naomi, you better catch up soon...more epicness is yet to come, pretty amazing plot development in the recent chapters.
I have a theory about Franky and DS, but I will use spoiler tag as Naomi hasn't caught up:
Well with Franky's notes and his knowledge it wouldn't be difficult for him to create beings who are similar or to close to the original. This way it wouldn't be difficult for him to find a number of Test subjects. I think the only one who is destined to attain 'perfection' will be no other then Franky while Crombel will fail...
We are always happy to see new fans of Noblessse.
I believe that the chapters ahead of you will soon get really good, becouse after I read more than 150 chapters, I was having a lot of questions. But right now, those misteries are slowly becoming clear to me. Still after one question is answered, 3 other pop up, but it's very funny and remarkably interesting to see how the story goes to reveal them.
The most frustrating for me is that there are no more chapters out, when the best part comes... Okay, they are coming out, each week to be precise, with more than 30 pages, although that's not enough to fill up/satisfy my hunger, after wanting to read more...
If you see the last few chapters, around chapter 190, Frankenstain finally starts to come, in the front, and something big is revealed about him. Nonetheless Rai's past also slowly becomes interesting and Frankenstain's character, still wraped in many mysteries, goes in the background.
In almost any other story, a character like Franky would NOT be so interesting for me, anymore, but not Franky, in Noblesse !!!
Frankenstain remains, along with Rai something special to me in this series, although I love all characters that were shown in Noblesse manhwa, especialy Shinwoo and Seira as a pair (), like I already mentioned in "Noblesse Pairing Thread" and many others...
I think the origins of his powers and the Dark Spear are the souls of the countless humans that were sacrified in his experiments.... That panel with shadows hands grabbing him was a hint. Like the clan leaders have the soul weapon with only adding one soul at a time, the souls of former experiments Frank made tried to obtain revenge by consuming Frank's mind (that was responsible for the experiments) and Frank managed to supress them....
In short, I think Frank used technology and dark magic to be what he is...
and these entities hate him thats y they devour him.
Right after finding Frankie has been doing experiements, he orders Frankie to place a seal on his powers.

Dunno if this has been brought up already, but there's another important thing about Frankenstein that somewhat bothers me. Look: http://egscans.com/Manga_Viewer/Nobl...Chapter_006/14
Seems like Rai considered the possibility of Franky becoming clan leader a REAL possibility. Isn't that strange?
The word, Clan, doesn't have to mean Raizel-nim meant a "Noble" Clan.
But then I get your confusion if you believe he meant Vampire/Noble Clan. He isn't actually a Noble or of their blood. That has finally been made clear. So the trading of Blood....is an interesting question. What would happen if he infused his blood with someone else? Because he is human I have not reason to think he can bite people and transform them as a Noble might.
Still it's an interesting Question? How would Frankenstein go about Creating a Clan, if he wanted to?

Maybe Franky would gather some over looked nobles and take them under his wing and start a clan (blood line via descendants)of his own.
The egscans chapter chapter linked about mentions clan leader, though the other one on mf has a slightly different text.
I cant say which of the two is accurate.
@Otters: The picture of Frankenstein reminds of this movie.
