Frank Black's Millennium Character Profile

Frank Black - Millennium profile image.


Devoted to his work (almost to the point of obsession), Frank Black has a reputation for being one of the most renowned profilers and criminal investigators. Part of his reputation is due to an ability to go inside the mind of the killer and witness events from his/her perspective. The nature of Frank‘s gift is ambiguous at best; at times it seems to be part of his senses, at other times it‘s almost psychic in nature. Having witnessed numerous atrocities committed by other humans day after day, Frank was finally forced into retirement after receiving photos of his family in the mail. At that point any desire to solve murders was lost, turning into an obsession to keep his wife and child safe. It wasn‘t until the Millennium Group contacted Frank and asked him to become a consultant did Frank decide to go back to work and start a new life for his family in Seattle.

A change of location didn‘t stop the photos from coming. Wanting to keep up the façade that no harm would come to his family, the only people who knew of these photos were members of the Group. Any pretense that the Blacks were safe was shattered when Frank‘s wife Catherine was drugged and kidnapped in an airport. Frank tracked down Catherine‘s kidnapper, and in an uncharacteristic fit of rage, killed him. Catherine was, of course, deeply grateful for having survived such an ordeal, but she was so shocked by Frank‘s actions that she thought it best they separate.

As if the separation between him and Catherine wasn‘t disappointing enough, Frank began to realize the Millennium Group weren‘t quite who they seemed to be. Although finding out that the Group knew about the man who‘d eventually kidnap Catherine and learning that their origins date back to the early days of Christianity, Frank still consulted for them. His limits were tested again when Catherine dies of the Marburg virus (the virus having killed several other people in Seattle). Convinced that the Millennium Group had evil intentions and that they needed to be taken down, Frank Black moved back to Virginia and went to work for the FBI. He took young agent Emma Hollis under his wing and acted as a sort of mentor. Frank‘s career in law enforcement ended after being accused of killing Agent Baldwin and finding out that he was cut off from the Bureau. The story of Frank Black ended with Frank staying in an asylum until Agents Mulder and Scully ask for his help on a case. Reluctant to help the agents at first, Frank eventually reconsiders and checks himself out of the asylum. At the dawn of the new millennium he reunited with his daughter Jordan, hoping to start a new future for themselves.
