BLACK, Frank & wife, Catherine
(Millennium)
1910 Ezekiel Drive
Seattle, WA 98924
Frank is a serial killer profiler with a background in Behavioral Science. He used to work for the Seattle Police Department but moved his family to Washington, D.C. to work with the FBI. Ten years later in 1996 when a serial killer posed a threat to his family, Frank returned to Seattle to live in an old yellow Victorian house with his wife, Catherine and their young daughter, Jordan.

Lance Henriksen as Frank Black

While in Seattle, Frank collaborates with a man named Peter Watts and a shadowy organization known as the Millennium Group to hunt down serial killers and other pervasive evil possibly related to biblical prophecy. Group members [including Frank] were inoculated with a special virus so that their members could be protected from the ultimate plague. Frank later discovered the "Millennium group is not concerned with any single individual in life...our responsibility is with the whole of mankind." The group's real purpose was about control not salvation. They used Bible prophecy as a cover for their insane deeds.

After the Millennium Group engineered an ebola-like virus outbreak that killed Frank’s wife, he returned to Washington D.C. with his daughter, Jordon and bought a house in Falls Church, Virginia. He joined forces with the FBI’s Critical Incidents Response Group and old friend Asst. Dir. Andy MacLaren, and Agents Barry Baldwin [later killed] and Emma Hollis [who betrayed Frank by cutting a deal with the Millennium Group in exchange for a cure for her father’s Alzheimer disease]. Frank finally quit the FBI and started his own campaign against the Millennium Group. He is presently in hiding with his daughter.


Some Millennium-isms

Bob Bletcher: What do you see?
Frank Black: I see what the killer sees.
Bob Bletcher: What, like a psychic?
Frank Black: No. I put myself in his head. I become the thing we fear the most.
Bob Bletcher: How?
Frank Black: I become capability. I become the horror. What we know we can become only in our heart of darkness. It's my gift. It's my curse.

Frank Black: It is prophesied that when the end comes, it will come in darkness: a catastrophe all foresaw but few believed. Most of us will battle too late against the chaos, but not the few, the radical few, who obey no discipline. Unencumbered by conscience, they prepare ruthlessly pursuing their own preservation. If they survive, the rest of us perish.

Catherine Black Consoles Frank

Catherine Black: Your gift gave you a nervous breakdown. This gift makes you see horrible images. It's turning you away from your family, from your daughter. It's caused you to turn to the Millennium Group. Frank, you never even consider that this gift that you have could be lying to you. What is it going to do to Jordan? I want her to have a chance. I want a childhood free from this. I want her to know she has somewhere to turn other than within herself.

Frank Black: We live in a world where too many people won't go far enough... won't do what they know is right... what they believe. I don't know how or why it got this way but the world has become so complicated, to involve yourself in someone else's problems is to invite them needlessly on yourself.

Jordan Black: Will we always be together?
Frank Black: Of course.
Jordan Black: Forever?
Frank Black: Well, nobody gets forever.
