Franklin Mott is a vampire and Tara du Rone's companion/Sugar Daddy in "The Southern Vampire Mysteries".

Physical AppearanceEdit

In the books, he is described as having iron gray hair and mustache. Sookie Stackhouse thinks he must have been in his fifties or early sixties when he was turned into a vampire. She describes him as being "vigorous and very masculine" and having an Italian accent.



In book 5, Dead as a Doornail, he dumps Tara and puts her up as a debt payment to cruel vampire Mickey. Eric's slight smile and raised eyebrow's along with his reply and non-appearance in the series since Dead as a Doornail suggests that Salome killed Franklin for bringing attention to those vampires trying to 'mainstream'.
