Dr. Tom Franklin was a scientist working at the Cambridge Polymer Labs in 2077. He and the others scientists were locked inside the labs by Jon Elwood when the bombs fell. He eventually killed himself with rat poison after becoming virtually incapacitated due to the radiation in the lab, opting for a quicker end rather than suffering further.
