See, the thing is, he's already willing to (or has) rewritten the character of Francis for the version of the plot starring the rookie. Given that, I think he should try centering the plot around Francis 2.0, as this professor's personality appears to work a lot better as a main character than Francis 1.0 would.

Alternatively, let the rookie be the player character, but have them encounter Francis 1.0 instead.

The reason I'm so adamant about having an old man as the player character is because nearly every game these days, RPGs especially, revolve around characters in their teens to early adulthood. More than anything, I'd like to see a game that makes a genuinely relatable protagonist that isn't young and eager. To me, it was the game's sole hook, and changing that makes it very difficult for me to stand behind this game idea. I'm aware it's likely a losing battle, but it's a point I feel it's worth fighting over.
