Frankie Suave earned his nickname because he is so even-keeled (except for thunder, but we won’t discuss that). His calm, cool temperament rubs off on his younger brothers, urging them to be quiet and well-behaved.

We probably need to clarify that Frankie’s serene world totally exists deep in his imagination. He thanks you for your support.
