Flan (フラン, Furan, Reborn! Colore: Fran) is the newest official member of the Varia in the Future who uses a Hell Ring with the numbers "666" (number of the beast) imprinted on it. Introduced during the Varia attack on a Millefiore base in Italy, Flan is Mammon's replacement as the group's illusionist and is thus forced to wear a large frog hat to symbolize this. Flan has a calm demeanor despite being very antagonistic towards other people, constantly verbally attacking them, which resulting in him being attacked back by several people, particularly Belphegor and Mukuro. In the present, Flan is not much different from his future-self, still retaining his mocking and straightforward behavior to others.
According to Reborn! Volume 25, his profile is top secret, but he was featured alongside Belphegor in Reborn's Weekly Horoscope as a Sagittarius. It was later revealed that his master is Mukuro Rokudo, who was released from the Vendicare Prison thanks to Flan's help.
Merone Base Invasion
Flan participated in the invasion and subsequent defense of a Millefiore Base in Italy in the same time frame as the Merone Base Invasion by Tsuna, his Guardians, and Lal Mirch. Flan was paired with Belphegor and ordered to explore the surrounding area to the base and fight any Millefiore soldiers they found. After Belphegor dispatched a number of Millefiore soldiers (and a large section of forest), they came across Olgert, and very much to their surprise, Bel's supposedly dead twin brother - Rasiel. When it came time to fight, Flan couldn't open his Box due to the fact that he needs to do a hero-like pose before opening his Box. He couldn't do his usual pose because it involves reaching over his head, which he couldn't reach because of the frog hat. After Rasiel incapacitated Bel, Flan was able to create an illusion and escaped, not only to save their lives but to also witness Xanxus fighting with Rasiel.
According to Lussuria, Flan went to visit a girl whose name was W.W after the Millefiore Castle Invasion. The romanized translation of what Lussuria said was "Daburyu," which is the letter W. It is later revealed that Flan went to Vendicare Prison to help Mukuro Rokudo escape prison by posing as a member of the Millefiore Famiglia. The Milliefore Familgia were about to release Ghost only to find that someone had posed as a member from their Famiglia and released Mukuro Rokudo. Flan is later seen at a hideout with the girl that was revealed to be M.M., who was there with Ken Joshima and Chikusa Kakimoto. M.M. scolds Flan for putting her bag upside-down and for sneezing on her expensive coat. Flan complains that he always gets scolded for everything, even though he was the one who had helped Mukuro escape. Chikusa says that Mukuro will need some time to recover, since he had been floating in a tank of water for ten years. Later on, in the final battle between the Vongola and Millefiore Famiglia, Kikyo, Zakuro, and Bluebell, who have seemingly killed the entire Vongola Famiglia, are attacked by illusions created by Mukuro.
Flan, who reappeared beside Mukuro, complained that Mukuro had taken the "spotlight" again and that the people that they believed to have killed were really an Illusion, and that the Real Funeral Wreaths had in fact killed no one. Belphegor, who felt a bit annoyed by how the illusion worked out, complained whether they really had to die in the illusion. Flan responded that illusions had to be "realistic" and that "illusions were somewhat like pranks." Mukuro said that he was wrong and comically stabbed Flan in the head, which shocked Lussuria and Ryohei. Mukuro said that the real reason was to find data on the Six Funeral Wreaths, and to serve as a warm up. Bel, who still believes that the illusion was still ongoing, asked how long the illusion would last. Flan reassures everyone that "pineapple hair wasn't an illusion" and that he helped him escape from Vendicare. Kikyo applauded Mukuro's apprentice for hoodwinking the Vindice, and Flan told Mukuro that he was a celebrity now, but Mukuro once again stabs him in the head to silence him. Flan then told everyone that the "rehearsal was over" since the Funeral Wreaths that have fully healed from the attack earlier are ready to wipe them out again. Flan tells Mukuro he should sit down because he just got his strength back or wait until his Vongola Box got there. Just when the two sides have begun to fight again, out of nowhere, Ghost arrives on the battlefield.
Ghost then started to drain Flan's Dying Will Flames along with everyone else that is present. The Varia started to attack Ghost, but to only find out that it had no use. After the battle, the rest of the Varia head back to Italy.
The Varia decide to recruit Flan as a new Varia officer. In the present, he lives in an unexplored region countryside of France called "Jura" with his grandmother. Viper asks Flan's grandmother where he was, to which she answers that he's playing upstream in the river at the west side of the countryside. They see him later on a river alongside with the Kokuyo Junior High Gang, excluding Chrome Dokuro, who are also looking for the boy. This time, Flan wears a giant apple head instead of a frog head, the Varia spotting him as the present Flan commented that his grandmother's bentos were awful as usual.
When he noticed Mukuro and the others' present, he mistakes them as "fairies," and does an exorcism dance, calling Mukuro, "pineapple head fairy" and Varia, "tooth decaying fungus," much to their annoyance. Flan starts to running away from them when Belphegor throws knives at him, which do not affect him as he blocks them with his hat, revealing it to be an illusion. He is chased after by Ken and Levi, who try to coax and intimidate him into calming down, respectively. Mukuro and Squalo stop him and find that he has lost his memories from the future because his head was hit by a cheese block, according to his grandmother. Mukuro and Squalo argue that neither of them needs Flan. The group negotiate and are about to decide with a game of ladder which side must take care of Flan when he interrupts and decides which group he will go with.
On the second day of the Representative Battle, Flan is seen firing missiles from Verde's Reality Illusion Gloves. When Colonnello fires his Maximum Rifle, Flan is injured protecting his Rainbow Wristwatch. Mukuro sees Flan's bad condition and chooses to retreat, taking Flan with him. Shortly, however, they were attacked by a Vindice and nearly overpowered by him, but Flan able to use his illusion to trick the Vindice, saving himself and Mukuro.
On the third day of the Representative Battle, he was supposed to assist Mukuro, Ken, and Chikusa to defeat the Vindice, but fell asleep, forcing Team Verde to form a temporary alliance with Team Reborn. When both of them started to get overpowered by the Vindice, Mukuro ordered M.M to wake Flan up, but he was too terrified by the Vindice's appearances whom he mistook as death gods and fainted again.
On the fourth day of the Representative Battle, he was chosen as one of representatives who will fight Team Bermuda. He, along with Chrome, Gokudera, and Yamamoto fights Small Gia and Big Pino. He and Chrome created illusions to hide themselves and another one to fight Small Gia and Big Pino to buy some times until Tsuna, Enma, and Basil arrives after defeating Alejandro. However, Small Gia and Big Pino able to pinpoint their location and destroy the illusions and also Gokudera's Sistema C.A.I and Yamamoto's swords. Fortunately, before Big Pino able to kill them with his next attack, they were saved by Enma's gravity manipulation that make them float in the air, dodging the attack. When Yamamoto and Gokudera able to hold Small Gia and Big Pino with Enma's help, Chrome told Flan to protect them with Verde's equipment. Flan, at first, reluctant since he's tired, scared, and annoyed. But, quickly relented when Chrome firmly insisted for his help, under one condition that she will kiss him on the cheek if it goes well. With Chrome's aid, he created ceramics that covered Yamamoto's and Gokudera's entire bodies right before the dynamites explode, destroying Small Gia's and Big Pino's power without harming Gokudera and Yamamoto. After resting and went to assist the members who were fighting Jager, he protected Tsuna from Jager's attack, but was quickly defeated by the latter along with Chrome and Enma.
After the Representative Battle was finished, he was submitted into Namimori hospital along with Mukuro, Chrome, Byakuran, Hibari, Dino, Basil, and Varia. He appeared when the wall that connected to Mukuro's room was destroyed by Hibari's tonfa, commenting how Hibari's tonfa hit right at the spikes of Mukuro's hair. In the last chapter, he was seen with the Kokuyo Gang when Tsuna narrated his thought of how he now has friends that he could rely on.
