François Séraphine

François Séraphine is a French football referee who last appeared in Pro Evolution Soccer 6. He is a normal referee, in refer to his card and foul strictness. More notably, François Séraphine is the second most hated PES referee, after legendary Kazuki Ito. Séraphine is a regular yellow card user and always manages to give you reasons to throw your controller (or keyboard) on your floor. From my personal experience, if you choose François Séraphine as the game ref and play against a French club, the possibility to commit fouls is higher than usual.

BIO: François Alexandre Séraphine was born in 1964 in Bayeux, Calvados, Normandy, France. Son of a fisherman, Séraphine studied economics and works as an accountant for a French company. He became a football referee after leaving a previous firm he worked for, before joining his current workplace.

FACT: Séraphine is the female form of Séraphin, a name deriving from the Hebrew word "seraph(im)", which is a type of celestial or heavenly being in Christianity and Judaism. He could be named after Sanctus Seraphin, an Italian violin maker who died in 1758.
