Mr. Midnight is Fran Bow Dagenhart’s closest companion and pet cat whom she lost at the beginning of the game, but she finds him in Chapter 2.

As he follows Fran, he can be used as an adviser for puzzles.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Mr. Midnight is a cat with black fur, a pink nose and big yellow eyes.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Mr. Midnight is a very polite and sweet cat who is loyal to people he knows and cares about, but he can usually sense if the person is bad or good. He loves and cares for Fran that she wants to see her happy and he is always telling Fran Bow Dagenhart to stay out of trouble.

Like Fran, he also wishes to return home with her.

History[edit | edit source]

Fran Bow Dagenhart received Mr. Midnight as a present from Martin Bow and Lucia Dagenhart (Fran's parents) sometime before their murders occur. Though in the prelude it seems to happen over just a week (Fran getting Mr. Midnight, Aunt Grace visiting, Aunt Grace watching her on Friday and the murder of her parents on Monday), these events occurring in such a short time frame is highly unlikely, since it is alluded to in the final chapter that Fran has had Mr. Midnight for a while as indicated by her painting of him, a picture of them at the lake, and the picture of Alice and her in which she comments she and Mr. Midnight go to play with Alice and her Cheshire Cat. Furthermore, cats tend to be animals of solitude, even as kittens most of the time, but Mr. Midnight and Fran are very close implying a bond formed over a greater amount of time than a week. Where he came from before coming into Fran's possession is unknown and never mentioned in the game.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The creators of Fran Bow own two black cats called Bobby and Baloo. They were the main influence and inspiration for the character of Mr. Midnight.
  • Itward has made several cat dolls and robots on his Flying Machine that are very similar to Mr. Midnight.
  • When Fran Bow Dagenhart has entered the Fifth Reality, she finds a cat that looks exactly identical to Mr. Midnight upon nearing the end, but he could not communicate with Fran.
  • When Fran is in the Asylum, a black toy cat (similar to Mr. Midnight) riding a unicycle is seen.
