“No reason to worry.”

—Alden Vacker, in every KOTLC bookAlden Vacker is part of the Vacker family and lives in Everglen. He works for the the Council as an Emissary - someone who is sent on a special mission, usually as a diplomatic representative. Because of his job he often wears a midnight blue cape. His trademark line is 'no reason to worry to reassure and support the people around him.

The name Alden means "Old Friend" or "Wise Friend".

Appearance Edit

Alden has teal eyes and wavy dark brown hair- the family resemblance between him and his son Fitz is very strong. He has very kind eyes that made Sophie trust him when she first came to live with the elves. He and his family are all very handsome, more so than a lot of other elves.

Biography Edit

Alden is first introduced in the first book of Keeper of the Lost Cities and quickly becomes an important character. Sophie relies on Alden throughout the books, and Alden, in turn, relies on Sophie. An example of this is in Exile when Alden has Sophie be his guide for the mind break of Fintan. Alden was one of the only people to believe in the Black Swan and searched for 12 years for Sophie despite being told he was chasing an imaginary ghost. Alden cares deeply about his family and friends and makes sure that everyone has 'no reason to worry'. During the second book, Exile, Alden's mind breaks after seeing Wylie from the guilt of exiling Prentice, but Sophie works tirelessly and is able to heal him.

Wanderling Edit

Alden's Wanderling is dark-leafed with vivid teal flowers peppered among the branches. Though Alden is still alive, the Wanderling was planted because it was believed that he would not recover from his broken mind.

Relationships Edit

Della is Alden's wife who is 100 years younger and was on his third matchmaking list.

  • Alvar (eldest son/opponent)

Alvar is Alden's oldest son, who, in Neverseen, revealed that he was a spy on the Vacker family.

  • Fitz (middle child)

Fitz is Alden's middle son, who followed in his footsteps and became a Telepath.

  • Biana (youngest and only daughter)

Biana trusts and loves Alden deeply and often needs his support.

Alden was one of the first elves to greet Sophie. He taught her most things about the Elvin world and offered her hospitality when needed. He always helps Sophie through her missions and supports her, as an emissary. Alden also trusts Sophie with his life when he chose her as his guide in the second book, Exile.

Keefe often relies on Alden and needs his support, and views him as a father figure.

Alden was one of the few supporters Grady and Edaline had when Jolie died.

Alden performed a memory break on Prentice with Quinlin.

Alina tried to steal Alden away from Della at their wedding by beguiling him. It's frequently mentioned in the books about how awkward this is. Once Dame Alina becomes Councillor Alina, Alden does not appreciate the way she treats Sophie. Alden is said to be 'slightly' terrified of her.

Alden and Quinlin were previously Cognates. Though still friends, they could never become Cognates again because of Quinlin's lack of trust.
