Warrant Officer "Cuda" Francis
WO2 Francis's past is shrouded in mystery and secrecy. All that is known of his is that he was (and is?) a member of the Nekekami.
The Coordinator of the Draconis Combine had seconded to Task Force Serpant a team of Nekekami, or spirit cats, warriors who had much in common with feudal Japan's ninja. Though their names were confidential, it was suspected that Francis was one of those Nekekami that went to Huntress to annihilate Clan Smoke Jaguar.
What is known though is that Francis had founded a Mechwarrior House reknowed for their fanaticism, the House of Cudakazi, the logo of which appears below. The sighting of this emblem has been known to terrify foes even before battle.
