Frenchie has a relatively normal life and upbringing, even becoming romantically involved with a woman named Isabelle Kristel. After she leaves him, Frenchie becomes a soldier of fortune where he eventually meets Marc Spector and Raoul Bushman. Once Spector becomes Moon Knight, Frenchie allies with him against Bushman who betrays the pair. Frenchie designs and builds the Mooncopter.
Frenchie later goes undercover and infiltrates the crime organization known as the Committee, helping Moon Knight bring them down. Marc's brother Randall causes an explosion at Marc's mansion that results in Frenchie being severely injured. Soon after, his then girlfriend informs Frenchie that he is descended from the “Hellbent”, a race of supernatural beings, and is able to transform into them.
Marc eventually drives Frenchie away. Frenchie meets Rob Silverman and the pair open a restaurant. Frenchie comes out and reveals that he was always attracted to Marc. Norman Osborne learns Frenchie is an associate of Moon Knight and sends a hit squad to kill him. The attack leaves Silverman gravely injured, leading Frenchie to teaming up with Moon Knight again to take down his attackers.
Frenchie and Marc make amends, to the point that Marc trusts his friend to watch over Marc's daughter, Diatrice Alraune.
