Francis X. Nicholson is a retired doctor who worked for the USAMRMC.
In 1996, Francis Nicholson, alongside Thompson Oliphant, was a part of a study with the British, the Motor Neuron Rapidity of Response study, to test the reflexes of soldiers. Though never told of what the research was for, Nicholson suspected that it was to do with the development of the CincLock-VII security system. Eventually the project was cut short and Nicholson reassigned once the necessary data was collected.
Some time before 2003, Nicholson resigned from the Medical Research Command, and settled down at the Cedar Falls Retirement Village in Florida.
When Majestic-12 planned to initiate a Cold War by launching American Chameleon missiles at various places around the world, and had started a bounty hunt to remove all those who would stop them, Nicholson was put on their liquidation list.
Nicholson was fast asleep when the bounty hunter known as the Zulu arrived at his retirement village. Never even aware of the danger, he was quickly beheaded, and the Zulu quickly and queitly escaped the country to take Nicholson's head to the Forteresse de Valois to claim his bounty.
