Delaware Frankensignal is one of the main tritagonists in the movie Traffic Lights.
He is a professional mad scientist who was once one in training during college. He is very good-skilled at inventions and experiments.
Delaware Frankensignal began as a scientist in training when he was attending college for 2 years after his High School Graduation. He was and is very good skilled with learning how to make inventions.
Del was often considered as a professional science rather than mad scientist, but at first he disagreed that believing that he is a mad scientist. He most likely did misunderstood the term, thinking they say when he becomes a scientist, he's mad.
Which is funny, because despite how smart he can be, he can rarely misunderstand some terms that are used especially if he's never heard of them before. He briefly had a silly argument about it.
Now, William LeGrand was actually one of his classmates when he was in 12th Grade, although William was 27 years old, he was often held back because even though he had the same skills as Delaware, the reason for being held back was because first of all, he was always a bully to Del and second of all was jealous and third of all, he often failed his tests and sometimes never turned in his homework and didn't graduate after he turned 28.
Delaware's training ended after he left college possibly not long before he married Julia. Meanwhile, Delaware was very smart, wise and always had payed attention to his teachers, and was often called a genius which was one of the reasons why LeGrand hated him so much. After not seeing him, he sorta did forget about what he remembered of him, and he seems to be more settled from dealing with issues.
Del is very nice, kind, and understandable, wise & also highly intelligent. Since he was scientist in training, for his mind, it was easy for him to study and to solve questions to, it's even easy for him to read things that are so difficult, there has rarely been times where he couldn't been able to figure something out.
Despite that he could get upset often but not so easy, he most commonly easily shows emotion when he proves that he is very nice towards others, especially towards William, but not so much because he can tell how hard it is to deal with somebody who always wants to challenge you.
He always understands people why they dislike or hate science, but he still says that's another important subject that needs to be studied. Delaware is very into Biology and Ecology which are his favorite topics, and what he would say to other students he implies it.
Delaware and William do not get along at all, William was always a bully to him, according to Del, William hates him because when he sees anybody that is a genius like him, he always will falsely accuse you of trying to cheat on his tests, competing with or mocking him.
Delaware was never harmed physically, but very often was offended and his feelings were hurt all the time. Later in life, they haven't spoken or seen each other for years afterwards.
Julia Yvonne was his first girlfriend in High School, and often crushed on him and were married for three years. Delaware divorced her because she started to become very nasty and rude, and started to all care about money and herself. She became very vain and disrespectful, she ended up becoming controlling and aggressive.
One year later, he met another woman who named Petunia Montgomery. She was similar to Julia, but possibly worse, however she was obsessed with spending money, she even spend Delaware's money without asking his permission and often hid his stuff. He divorced her because she her behavior was beginning to be dis functional.
Blossom Banks Edit
Delaware 2 1/2 years later, he met Blossom Banks. She was very distinct to Julia and Petunia, she was a very nice woman, but she was never there for him because her boss prohibited her to take any days off, and always wanted her to work 50 hours a week, which was crazy by her controlling boss Catherine.
Blossom was a close friend to Del, she was very kind, caring and selfless, and a very understandable person. One day, she was asked to leave her apartment because she couldn't afford the payments, and she had to move to a full-size house which she now is in Cleveland, Ohio after previously Catherine fired her. However, she did say that they'll still always be friends, and that was the last time Delaware had heard from her.
After the last time he heard from Blossom, another 2 years later, he adopted Seymor Will Barious who was nine years old because a person from an orphanage explained to his terrible past, and Del was very shocked to hear what happened, he wanted to adopt him because he felt very bad what happened in his past, and also he wanted to adopt him because Delaware never likes living alone so he became his foster son.
When Delaware was 33, he met Adina Novák when she was visiting his new laboratory that was built connected to his house as she was one of the 30 people who (were his neighbors) visited his laboratory. She also is a scientist, and is from Czech Republic. She also was a scientist in training.
She is nearly as smart as he is when inventing stuff and creating experiments, therefore Delaware taught her what he learned when he was in College. She was shocked what he knew how to do, and exclaimed, "That's very cool!"
6 months later after they've met, they got married. They've been married for 5 years. Delaware is now 38 years old while Adina Novák is 34 years old.
When Hegan moved in his area, Delaware and Adina both were excited to have new neighbors because, lot of people were moving out because as they couldn't afford taxes ironically, they are rich and wealthy, but there not even aware of it. Hegan was told by his parents telling him what Del and Adina explained to him, first he wasn't nice because he didn't know who he is, Hegan did get in trouble because he was rude to Seymor at one time because at that time he was 14 years old, he was afraid of befriending with other kids, and he realized that Seymor doesn't have any friends and he apologized and became his friend.
Delaware and Hegan as of now get along very well, Hegan knows some things that Del knows, but not entirely, and he also was taught since he was 16 1/2. Hegan didn't tell his Parents what Delaware taught him because he was afraid that he'd get in trouble, but ironically for him, Bill and Katherine were proud of him because his Dad said to him "That's a good thing, Hegan! Whenever your growing up, it's good to know these things because, when you become a grown man, you will be able to learn to know how to fix a car, or other stuff like that."
Physical Appearance Edit
Delaware Frankensignal is a very rare traffic signal called "The Funky Signal." Which was a traffic light with 5-lights (red-arrow top left, red light top right, yellow light in center, green arrow bottom left and green light bottom right, sometimes they had straight arrows.) He has short black hair, red eyes and a black goatee.
He often wears his red bow-tie, (sometimes his brown neck-tie), and black dress coat. He also has red pants (sometimes he wears white) and a maroon belt. He wears black shoes/white laces.
He rarely wears boots.
- He was originally suppose to be the main villain in the movie, but the reason why he was rewritten as the tritagonist because Evan began to feel that the character seemed to be way too nice to portray as a villain, before his biography was being changed, so he eventually was replaced by a new character named, William LeGrand.
- He is the first character to have a large ancestry.
- Before he was replaced by LeGrand as the main villain, he was originally to be a police officer.
- Delaware Frakensignal is loosely based on The DE Funky Signal was an extremely rare stop light that only existed in the Northern part of Delaware, around Elsmere and Talleyville. There is a possibility that there were some right turn versions of that signal as well, they've eventually were replaced by normal 4 section Triangle shaped-like signals, it is presumed that they may be extinct.
- Though Adina is mentioned in the movie, she does not make an official appearance until World Adventurers, despite that, she does make a picture cameo were in Del's lab he has an office. What's halarious is he makes a picture cameo in World Adventurers whenever the scene Adina is talking to Emily and Alexander.
