For me, I think Franky would be a good choice, but he's not a Noble, so it shouldn't work.
I still have never understood where the whole Shinwoo loving crowd came from, but normal humans aren't even seen on screen except for a moment or two now, so the idea of him leveling up that much is ridiculous.
I may be wrong but I think besides him, there is not much more room for plot development than the old - Elders come, Rai \ franky defeats them.
So have hope on the weak humans xD
It's always more interesting to have a character who starts mortal and goes on to goditude, at least to me.
Plus, as Boss said, he's gotta have a role in the plot. It would just be too weird for one of the first characters introduced to have no significant role. That's what I think anyway.

I'd like to think that Rai has always been the one-and-only Noblesse. And so maybe what the story is moving toward is a world that doesn't need a Noblesse any more, and Rai can live a regular life?
But I do see Shin Woo having an important role in the story.
Instead of Rai giving something to Shin Woo, maybe it's Frankenstein who passes on his powers. After all, Franky is a human. So he ought to pass his powers onto another human, right?
i think shinwoo and other kids already have important role in the story. if u think from time rai wakeup and come to school he become friend with them .what rai needed most important is friends . i mean before that rai live with frank and sometime clanleader would come to meet him.but most of time in his life rai was alone so shinwoo is good for role of friend then noblesse
If Rai dies at the end of the seiries whiat if one of his last acts is to use some of his remaining power to give Franken a portion of his soul in order to permanently calm the dark spear. We saw that Rajaks blood was enough to return Franken back to normal during his little rampage so just imagine what Rai's blood/ soul would do. This could be a way for Rai to show his gratitude to his loyal servant while further strengthening one of the strongest characters in this series. While not a noble if he had rais soul and will I could see the Lord allowing Franken to continue his Lords mission.
Far fetched I know but still more believable than Shinwoo IMO.
I like the idea of Shinwoo as successor precisely because he is a mere human and only uses his abilities to defend the weak from the strong. Everyone else seems to have at least one conflict in their character here and there. (Regis' arrogance, clan affiliation; M-21's hangup on the past)
The one thing deterring me most from imagining Shinwoo as the Noblesse is that he doesn't have Rai's style, and I'd hate to see his personality or tastes change with any transference of power. With great power comes great elegance?
Rai have his own soul weapon, though without any physical form, hinting us to the fact that Noblesse have their own pure bloodline just like Lord. Soul Weapons can only be used by the one from the same bloodline. No one can be the successor except Rai's own son/daughter. (No noble->Regis/ Seira OR No Human--> Shinwoo/Frankenstein).
The most we can expect for Shinwoo is either modification or a contract. Nothing more.... Also, Doesnt it feels good for a story to have a normal human character who will play significant role without any power?
Also, knowing Rai's personality, he wouldnt allow anyone else to carry the huge burden of being the Noblesse.
He would be the last Noblesse!
I don't think Raizel ever allow anyone to be The Noblesse (he never want to other suffer the bad effects of the power)
In my opinion,Raizel would reincarnate himself(Phoenix Theory).
Nice ideas guys -
I think that Ragnoarok will play a key role in preventing Rai's death and become his soul weapon.
Since Rai already took Ragnarok into his body once - I'm sure the old Lord planned something along those lines.
At least thats a whacky idea I thought up.
So maybe there won't be another Noblesse / Successor and Raizel will be the only one.
Seira's taking care of Rai now... maybe that's where the successor will come from
I still believe that Shinwoo was something yet to do and it will ofc be something related to Rai-nim.
I wonder why Franky doesnt seem more apprehensive because there is three elders coming to get them... Maybe he knows something?
Seria x Regis
Seria x Shinwoo
In terms of succession - you're right... lol
I think the only way to have Raizles heir is to have the young lord and Rai to be married. He did offer her a pre wedding ring of sorts with that Ramen he left for her?
As of yet Franky doesnt know that three are on their way but he suspects something big to happen thus requesting assistance from Lukedonia.
