“You'll understand, someday, day when you see the Vacker Legacy for what it is.”
“The air in the room shifted, turning hotter and heavier each stare sent their way- a blast of searing judgement aimed at the family of Vackers who'd brought scorn upon the name. Fitz and Biana seemed to shrink under the weight of it, ducking their chins and picking up their pace as angry murmurs began to swell- starting as a low rustle and growing into a pounding thrum.”—Narration, in Book 7: Flashback Page 18
The Vackers are noble elves, known for Alden's association with the Council, Fallon being one of the three original councillors, and being one of the longest lines of noble families. Quite a few of them are Ancients.
Biana, Fitz, Della, and Alden, the main characters that are Vackers, live at Everglen. They are good friends with the Ruewens and helped them adopt Sophie. They are noted to have a bad relationship with Sir Tiergan because of Alden's support for and involvement in Prentice's memory break. The family is a close-knit group and is very welcoming of others; particularity Sophie and Keefe. Keefe often stays with the Vacker family to avoid his overbearing father, Lord Cassius. During Book 2, the Vacker's introduced Sophie to the Elvin tradition of the aurenflare.
Vacker means fair, beautiful, fine, or handsome. This refers to the family's good looks.
The Vacker legacy described by Alvar Vacker turns out to be more of Luzia Vacker's legacy. Luzia Vacker formed a treasonous alliance with the trolls, helping and housing their hives on her property. Vespera claims that Luzia Vacker used her illusion techniques to hide the hives. Vespera also claimed Luzia Vacker might've been the reason for her jailing to distract and obscure her own doings.
The Vacker's may be a little obsessed with their legacy so much so that they try to hide anything that would tarnish it. After Alvar's betrayal, some of the other members of the Vacker family looked at Alvar and his family as failures to the Vacker name. They're so obsessed with their legacy that they tried to cover up the fact that Fallon and Luzia Vacker are only half-siblings.
