Frank North was a rugged member of London's underclass and an ally of the mage John Constantine.
In 1978, he became a member of the ill-fated Newcastle Crew along with other neophyte mages such as Sister Anne-Marie, Gary Lester and Benjamin Cox. After the failure to exorcise the demon Nergal from young Astra Logue, Frank and the others parted company. They reunited years later to fight a coven of male witches known as the Brujeria. During this incident, Frank was beheaded by a traitor within the ranks. His ghost rose from the grave, and along with other deceased members of the old crew, began to haunt John Constantine. North's ghost first appeared to Constantine during the mage's battle with the hunger demon Mnemoth . The battle with Mnemoth cost the life of the final member of the old Newcastle Crew, Gary Lester. As Lester's spirit left his body, Frank and the others welcomed him with open arms.
