Fallon Vacker is one of the oldest elves alive. He was part of the Original Council which consisted of three elves, and was a Councillor when Bronte was one of the first Emissaries. He served on the Council for nearly a thousand years, then resigned in order to be able to marry. He was one of the people to go to Ravagog after the ogres took over the gnomes' homeland.
Nowdays Fallon lives in his property Mistmead, and like most ancients he is 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 is said to have the same, crisp, accented voice that the Vackers are known to have. He was the one who sentenced Vespera to the Lumenaria dungeon.
Personality[edit | edit source]
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.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
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.
