Ernestine Franklin
The son of a bitch… why doesn't he open up?!
― Ernestine Franklin[src]

Ernestine Franklin is a citizen of Rapture and employee at Rapture Central Computing. She was one of the people locked inside Minerva's Den during Sofia Lamb's control over the city. She had devised a plan to escape the city using a hacked bathysphere signal beacon to scramble Lamb's torpedoes, but was frustrated that the only bathysphere in Minerva's Den was locked in Charles Milton Porter's private dock.[1]
