It is revealed that the corpse isn't human, and thus it was believed to be one of the beings that Fran created, hence why they contacted her as opposed to having a normal autopsy done. The corpse turns out to be an immortal being who, though his flesh and organs rotted away, was forced to live on, having his body supplemented by a vast amount of insects. His immortality turns out to be a punishment for having mocked Christ in his final moments, 2000 years ago. So, Fran helps him completely rebuilding his body.

In fact, the only one whom Veronica befriends is a seemingly kind, quiet girl, Enshou Yura. The bullying continues throughout the month. Veronica also learns rumors of girls whom Miki targets simply disappearing into the forest. On the last day of Veronica's stay in the school, she makes good on a promise to have tea with Yura. But there, it is revealed that Miki actually works under Yura, whom brings girls to her home where they can be abducted by men who intend to sell them off as pleasure slaves to pedophiles.

Extra. Purin - Fran and Veronica go to a showing of a film based on the events in Chapter 27 "Her Pet Dog".

The offspring are a new race, consisting entirely of hermaphrodites.
32. Justice 2 - A continuation to the first Justice chapter. A man saved by the protagonist of the Justice chapter becomes a fan of him, trains to become a superhero and asks Fran for super-strength, but he is more reasonable in his requests, so he does not turn into a monster.

On their exit Veronica chops him in half and hides him in the wall cracks, where he is seen again. Meanwhile, another girl sees Okita. The assassin turns out to have regenerative cells like Agito. He escapes, yet unable to reassemble his torso to his legs. Veronica is then attacked by the organization to which the assassin belongs, consisting of similar super-soldiers. When she returns to Madaraki Mansion she discovers that she does not have to worry about witnesses, as the school now has a lot of new ghost stories.
34. The Kannon - A group of fishermen find a giant dead girl washed up on the shore. She seemingly died from exhaustion in the sea. A man who owns the stretch of shore claims ownership of the corpse, and plans to make a fortune out of her. Fran concludes that she is a similar creature to the girl in Chapter 17 "Sea Monster", only less whale-like, and therefore an early experiment. She revives the girl through an artificial heart transplant. As the girl rises, Fran notes that the girl has love-bites on her neck and was likely popular among her kind. Her kind come for her and she drifts off into the sea, ironically, much to the man's misfortune.
35. Robot - An engineer who creates robots for a living, asks Fran to transplant his dying wife's personality and memories into a robot body. Together, they produce a cybernetic model of her mind. After a successful procedure, he takes the model with him to a show and it becomes a huge hit. It quickly goes into series production, becoming the RR-23, the most human-like robot ever created. It is used widely for various occupational and domestic tasks, as well as "companionship". A year after the success of the RR-23, he remains unmarried -- and a womanizer. On a date with another woman, a large group of RR-23 models attack and kill the man in desperation and jealousy. Fran hears their pleas, as they want to stay with him forever, so Fran performs the same operation on him. This results in a new male model, the RR-33.
36. Aura - An actor requests Fran create him an "aura" to help him in his career. Fran researches a physical way to attain this, and concludes that pheromone manipulation would produce the same results, although it would only work in direct contact with people. The operation included the introduction of a pheromone gland, but as a result, Adorea and Veronica become immediately enamored with him and refuse to let him leave. Fran helps him escape and tells him to come in for check-ups. Later, he comes back to Fran requesting the pheromone level be reduced. To his dismay, he is gaining acting work, but fails to capture audiences on television. He is forced to turn to work at a host club, and wishes to lessen the attention he gets from his clients so he can quit. Fran cannot remove the pheromones from his system, so she tries to plastic surgery to make him uglier to help him get less attention. The surgery fails to deter his clients.
37. Two-Dimensions - A young woman requests plastic surgery to look like a heroine from a popular shojo manga to gain the attention of the actor from Chapter 36 "Aura" because he is a fan of anime and manga. Overcome with emotion, Fran agrees to do the surgery. The initial surgery results in larger eyes and a smaller nose, but Fran warns any more surgery would have dire effects on daily life. The girl becomes successful in the entertainment industry. She finally meets the actor, but this only intensifies her desire for more surgery. Fran reluctantly performs further plastic surgery, resulting in the modification of much of her skull and the removal of nerves. She gains a role in the adaptation of a popular manga, and finally gains the attention of the actor. On the night they are together, she begins to fall apart in the shower. The actor sees her and mistakes her for an alien. Watching a news report about alien sightings back at Madaraki Mansion, Fran notes that the girl never came back for her check-ups.
Extra. A Regular Customer - The original Sentinel, from Chapter 23 "Justice", requests his mutated body be returned to its normal state. Fran says she cannot fix him, and suggests he finds a place to stay. He goes to a cafe where he thinks friends will take him in, and runs into the Sentinel II, the man from Chapter 33 "Dead Zone". Mistaking him for a monster from Black Lotus, the Sentinel II tries to kill him. He escapes, angry over the plagiarizing of his secret identity.
37. Imaginary Self - A boy commits suicide by jumping off a building due to bullying. Fran finds him on the scene and immediately performs surgery. He asks if Fran can make him look less like an easy target, so she injects him with protein to stimulate muscle growth. He still gets bullied, so Fran provides him with cells that allow him to change his body, in any way, at will. He becomes smarter, stronger and more popular. To the dismay of his childhood crush, he changes and begins to ignore her. He later hears that she has a boyfriend. Broken-hearted and lost, he locks himself in his room and dissolves into nothing but a sea squirt. Fran gathers his perfumed musk in a vial and gives it to the girl. Fran discovers the girl does not have a boyfriend and that it was a rumor.
Fran Madaraki - The protagonist of the manga, Fran lives at the Madaraki estate. Though she is often mistaken as Naomitsu Madaraki's daughter, she is actually his greatest masterpiece. Fran has obviously undergone several inhuman surgeries: she is fitted with two giant Frankenstein-like electrodes at each side of her head and she has stitches all over her body as if she had been patched up, thus the title of the manga being a play on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Still, at a glance, she looks like a regular girl, and sometimes she even attends a normal school. However, dispite her attempts at normality, Fran's unsteady step and her habit of drawing out the end of her sentences still make her stand out.
Somewhat absent-minded and easy-going, Fran appears removed from humanity - she is often genuinely uncaring of any potential consequences of her actions, and seems to have absolutely no regard for human morality. While she appears to have a distinct lack of empathy, and will serve any client, from superheroes to mobsters and worse, she does sometimes show compassion for her clients... or at least, their reasons for wanting business with her.
Fran is able to make her clients' dreams come true and very often their nightmares as well - the consequences of her actions are extraordinary. Even so, Fran carries on without a concern. During surgery, she is able to increase the number of her arms and operate at a greater speed. Her one creed is that she cannot ever take life; often, her victims wish she would kill them out of mercy.
Veronica Madaraki - A bioweapon assassin created by Dr. Madaraki for his own protection. In addition to her naturally high combat ability, she is trained in the handling of explosives and the setting of traps in the field. A large, X-shaped stitch marks her face. Because she was created after Fran, Veronica calls her "onee-sama" ("elder sister", in a highly respectful manner).
Wielding a huge guillotine blade in her right arm and a sharp sword in her left, she also appears to have needles on the end of her fingertips which allow her to inject viruses into her victims. She follows her own battle etiquette: "To murder while causing as little suffering as possible", in opposition to Fran, who believes that "regardless of the shape or form, if it can function as a living organism it is good". As Veronica supports the notion of "rather a painless death than a painful life", she is the antithetical existence to Fran.
Although her first appearance was somewhat of an antagonist, she quickly joined Fran at her home, and appears to be very protective of Fran. She will not hesitate to eliminate anything that threatens her, although Fran stops her most of the time because of her beliefs.
Gavrill Madaraki Gavrill is Fran's older sister.
Gavrill is what Fran calls a "Transformer", her entire Skeletal, muscular, organ, and Nervous system have been partitioned into many smaller divisions so that she can consciously control them, which grants her the ability to shape her body into whatever suits her needs. Her primary combat form is a humanoid wolf (giving her the nickname Gavrill the Wolf). However, Fran says that transformations require great amount of willpower. As a result, the Professor has abandoned the practice due to the danger that comes with it, that is if the subject's will is not strong enough.
Gavrill is exceptionally foul-mouthed. She appears to hate the Professor and her younger sisters. Due to her distinct violent nature, Gavrill is also the leader of a gang that goes around the world killing and looting.
She's introduced in chapter 40 "Buccaneer", where she tricks Veronica into coming to a hotel in order to lure and capture Fran. Her intention was to force Fran to give her the Madaraki estate, as she deems her "unfitting" to "hog it all".
After a gruesome battle between Gavrill's gang and a abomination of human body parts fused together by Fran, Fran and Veronica manage to escape through the air ducts by making some bodily sacrifices. Veronica's body is shrunk due to her previous defeat at the hands of Gavrill, and Fran sacrificed her lower body. The scent of Fran's lower half attracts the wolf-like Gavrill. When she discovered the body however, Gavrill knew it was a trap as Fran not only left behind her lower half, but also a bomb with it. On the severed body was a note written by Fran to Gravill, which said "Elder sister, your manners are atrocious and I must punish you". As soon as she read this, Gavrill was swallowed in the explosion. It is unknown if she survived.
Okita - The head of a handsome young man with the body of a cat. He often works along with Fran, supporting her or making fun of her. When attending parties he attaches a human body to his head, thus taking the form of a perfectly normal adult man. During operations when Fran goes too far, Okita is sometimes bewildered, but in general he supervises them in silence. Very rarely does he fall in love with female cats.
Howl - A butler with the face of a dog and the body of an adult human male. He calls Fran "Mademoiselle". Howl receives phone calls and makes tea. He behaves in a relaxed, sophisticated manner.
Fragon - One of Fran’s servants, he wears a black cloak and a hat. His true form is unknown due to his clothing. Judging from his superior sense of smell and the partially exposed snout, the likelihood that he is a pig-like man is high.
Raglush - Appearing only in chapters 11 and 13, Raglush's appearance is unknown, presumably humanoid, with his hands and/or fingers replaced by serrated claws. He also shows incredible speed. His clothes are similar to that of Fragon's.
Dr. Naomitsu Madaraki - During the world war this scientist worked for the Biochemistry Division, earning fame and the moniker of “Devil of Biology”. He was and is considered a top-class thinker in the field of biotechnology. He has also been called the “Spider’s Thread” due to some of his surgical operations involving human resurrection. After the war he moved from country to country for the sake of his research, although apparently he has returned home in recent years. At the moment his whereabouts are unknown. If he is still alive then it is estimated that he must be quite old. Dr. Madaraki defined World War II to be “a war to kill the gods” because of its promotion of scientific development and the erosion of religion accompanied by it.
Dr. Amatsuka - A friend of Madaraki’s since the days of the old Japanese Empire. His various achievements have earned him the title of Viscount in England. He has an open bet with Madaraki on the existence of God.
Officer Kuhou - A glasses-wearing, female investigator who has the occasional interaction with Fran. She is sort of air-head at times but is usually very serious when working in the field. She first meets Fran in order to get help in tracking down a possible murderer. The second time they meet up, she ends up taken on a surgery from Fran in order to heighten her senses so she can track down and kill the clones of one of Fran's previous experiments. After her encounters she begins to be haunted by violent dreams in which she is taken apart by Fran. It is implied at the end of chapter 13 that her surgery and hunting down of clones was just another one of her nightmares, but it is still unsure.
Adorea - She is another one of Fran's companions who is always seen wrapped entirely in bandages. Her job is to collect and store the many organs Fran may need to take on the go. The organs are collected through her "face", which is nothing more than hundreds of tentacles used to tear and collect the organs from the "patient." The organs are stored through out her body and accessed by Fran through many zippers found all over her body. In one chapter, she becomes very important as Fran and her assassins get trapped and injured in a tunnel, where one of the assassins appears to admire and almost love Adorea, only to be "collected."
Her origin was revealed in an extra chapter. Originally a beautiful, but terminally ill, girl, she had a lover who was handsome, but also in a terminal condition, Due to their love for each other, they agreed to give each other their organs upon death, so that the other could live, but the man went back on his word, and took all of Adorea's organs for himself. Dr. Naomitsu Madaraki, the surgeon in charge at the time, modifed Adorea into her present condition so she could take back her organs (with interest!).
Agito - Agito is a mysterious man with a large jaw, shark-like teeth, and rough hands, his finger nails have also been sharpened to a fine point. In chapter 15 he is the lady's bodyguard and personal assassin, in chapter 18, he seems to only be going after Fran, in attempt to destroy the mansion and gather all of Dr. Madaraki's information. His background is mostly unknown, but it is revealed in chapter 18 he works for some mafia/yakuza style organization bent on destroying Fran and gathering all of Dr. Madaraki's information.
Kaneda - Kaneda is introduced in chapter two as a very superficial girl. She is run over by a truck and is saved by Fran at the persistence of a boy in her class that had a crush on her. Fran gave her the body of a caterpillar and started developing feelings for the boy she rejected at the beginning of the chapter. When she gets her old body back, she is shown eating the boy alive during sex. She comes back in chapter 29 and is shown to be completely insect. Fran tests a new way of giving birth on her.
