Leops Franck was the Master of the Astronomican and a High Lord of Terra, during the fifth year of the 13th Black Crusade. Franck was one of the High Lords which opposed Chancellor of the Imperial Council Lev Tieron's attempt to push through a Dissolution act that would free the Adeptus Custodes from their vows on Terra.[1]

Leops Franck was one of the key architects of a plan to use the Dark Eldar to repair the failing Golden Throne.[3] Along with Lord Inquisitor Adamara Rassilo, Speaker for the Chartist Captains Kania Dhanda, and Fabricator-General Oud Oudia Raskian a scheme was conducted to smuggle a Dark Eldar Haemonculus onto Terra to repair the Throne, but it escaped and began to instead run amok where it was eventually killed by Inquisitor Erasmus Crowl and Custodes under Navradaran.[2] Despite this setback, Franck was able to organize a delegation to travel to an unspecified location (likely Commorragh) and finish the final phase of the negotiations with the Dark Eldar. He was eventually confronted in the Hollow Mountain by Erasmus Crowl, and in the ensuing battle Franck used his formidable psychic abilities to nearly kill the Inquisitor. However the Astronomican malfunctioned during the battle as the Noctis Aeterna approached, creating a blast that sent Franck over a cliff.[3] Franck was killed, with the High Lords apaprently thinking he was slain in a calamity that befall the Astronomican. He was replaced by Lucius Throde.[4]
