—Fallon Vacker, in Flashback
Fallon Vacker is one of the oldest elves alive, living in Mistmead. He was part of the original Council which consisted of three elves. He was a Councillor when Councillor Bronte was one of the first Emissaries. He served on the Council for nearly a thousand years before resigning to marry. He was one of the people to go to Ravagog after The Ogres took over The Gnomes Homeland. During the time the books come out, he lives like most ancients, living secluded and rarely accepting visitors. Fallon is Fitz, Biana, and Alvar's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather. He served for about a thousand years before stepping down to marry. He is said to have the same, crisp, accented voice that the Vacker's are known to have. He was the one who sentenced Vespera to the Lumenaria dungeon.
Fallon is notoriously reclusive, not liking company. He has trouble separating what is from what used to be, and he prefers his home because of that. He is forgetful and strange because of his age.
Fallon is described to have a face that's all lines and angles, with the pointiest ears Sophie Foster has ever seen. He has white-blond hair that is said to be grown to a dramatic widow's peak, adding a severity to his perfectly chiselled features. His eyes are described to demand attention, dark as a midnight sky and shining with an intensity that could come with a millennium of wisdom.
Fallon Vacker interrupts Alvar Vacker 's tribunal with the phrase "A lot can happen in six months." After Alden Vacker says that six months isn't a lot of time while trying to convince Fitz and Biana that Alvar living with them for six months isn't horrible, later forgetting why he interrupted.
