Frank Hayden (brother to Wesley Hayden)
Goodlooking,everything going for him, has respect from everyone. has power in the society even if he doesn't enforces the law. married to a beautiful wife. doenst have children.
admired as a hero. a doctor. a lovable person. a rapiest, has a serios problem i think that frank gets off while having the power to have indian girls bow down to him and do anything he says.
He has a perfect life. however he takes it for granted and does stupid things. which will then lead him to suicide.
Frank is said to be the a good brother. he stuck up for wesley which is his younger brother, when the high dog brothers were after them.
I get the impression that Frank is the favourite one out of the Hayden's. He was the first born and he is everything that every parents ever wanted their son to be. until the accusation was made, which was obviously true.
