Behind the scenesEdit
Frankie was named after one of Cranium's colleagues that initially did the research into reviving the dead. This is a nod to Dr. Frankenstein.
Granted from a humor stand point perhaps there was a Dr. Frankie or even a Dr. Frank. Whatever the case, Frankenstein isn't seen in Silmaria. The only split-minded scientist there has developed there own version of reanimated dead Gort.
