Franziska Doppler

Franziska is a rhythmic gymnast , has perfect grades, and is considered a nerd, making it all the more surprising when she starts dating the stoner Magnus Nielsen.

Franziska is close to her younger sister Elisabeth, even if they bicker sometimes. She is angry with her parents Peter and Charlotte; she can't stand that they are brushing their marital problems under the rug instead of speaking openly about them. Franziska absolutely despises the hypocrisy of people in Winden.

Magnus draws the wrong conclusions and confronts Franziska about it. She tells him that she's selling Bernadette hormone prescriptions for gender reassignment. She found out that her father was one of Bernadette's customers and this is how he used to pay her. Now Bernadette relies on Franziska. She is very upset by Magnus' lack of trust, but she forgives him.
