Wow, did I just say that?

It seems that Francine does not really like bugs seeing as she complained to Palladium about the bug bite on her leg. She can get upset when she is faced with danger but is willing to do what she can in the end.
She first appears in the episode "The Black-Mud Swamp" where she was part of Palladium's class, she notified her teacher about a bug bite and Palladium points out that it is a swamp and that it is just a bug. However, she still points to where the bug had bit her and it flusters him.
When the troll Knut had used to find Bloom and Stella at Gardenia was set free while it was on a Red Fountain aircraft, thanks to the Trix, it surrounded her, Amaryl, and another fairy. The Winx intervened and distracted the monster while the Specialists tries to recapture it but failed. She was there while Amaryl mocks the Specialists and continues their way through the swamp.During the events following the Trix's success on stealing Bloom's powers, Red Fountain's students and staff had joined Alfea, while continuing the fight against the Army of Darkness there. After some quiet time from all the minor invasions, Tecna, Flora, and Musa were sitting on the grass and talking about the current events. Musa wanted a normal school but Tecna tells her to look at it positively; being part of history and fighting alongside the greatest wizards and fairies and creating new spells that could never be re-cast. It is then that she and Ortensia come up to them and express their feelings about how upset they are by this whole thing. However, Musa and Flora was able to convince them that they are all part of the team and that they will eventually win this battle.
In "The Witches' Downfall," she celebrates the addition of the world "Winx" into fairy vocabulary with her classmates.
