Fallon was a Nentyar hunter in 1373 DR.[1] He betrayed the Nentyarch and kidnapped Araluen, intending to render her unto the Rotting Man;[3] he eventually turned against his masters, but was slain in the process on Mirtul 7 of that same year.[4][2][note 1]

Description[]

While on garrison, Fallon wore dark green leather armor, and a silver leaf pin clasping a sea-green cloak.[1]

Personality[]

Fallon was somewhat of a stickler for protocol who had a mild antipathy for Elowen,[1][5] often going out of his way to annoy her.[6] He was somewhat bothered by mention of the fall of Dun-Tharos. He also had an usually sour disposition, and a particular thirst for praise.[7] He also had a bit of a covetous, envious streak.[8] All of those seemed to stem from a certain egotism.[9]

Though Anammelech had been the one to cultivate a relationship with him, he eventually came to serve the Rotting Man without any protest- albeit out of fear rather than loyalty.[10]

However, he still had at his core a certain respect for life.[11]

Abilities[]

Fallon was still a hunter trained by the Circle of Leth whose survival skills were superlative.[12] He also knew of the way to employ the Keystone effectively, being able to use both created portals[13] and allowing other influences into the Celestial Nadir.[14]

Possessions[]

Of note, Fallon had been granted several special arrows by the Nentyarch.[8]

Relationships[]

Anammelech had been Fallon's handler for some time.[15] He went out of his way to annoy Elowen.[6]

History[]

Before 1373 DR, Fallon was already Anammelech's ears in the Nentyarch's court, in exchange for gold.[15]

Fallon was amongst the Yeshelmaar garrison that greeted Elowen when she arrived there alongside Araluen in 1373 DR.[1] He attended the meeting with the Nentyarch the day after, where he was named one of the people that would accompany Araluen in her quest to confront the Rotting Man.[16]

He suggested to Elowen's group that they meet at Yeshelmaar's Skymeadow as a distraction while he collected the keystone and Araluen, then took them to the Arches of Xenosi while the party was away; they barely managed to catch up to the door he opened into the Celestial Nadir.[3] Fallon emerged on the Arches of Xenosi, where he rendered the keystone upon Anammelech, who set up an ambush and sent him on his way to the Rotting Man.[17] He was contacted directly by the Rotting Man, telepathically, on Anammelech's death, and given orders to proceed through an underground route, as well as a magical compulsion to obey the Talontyr's orders.[18]

While underground, in a moment of hesitation, the compulsion thereatened to destroy his mind; it was only Araluen's intervention that stopped it. Relieved, Fallon decided to switch sides again.[19] He placed an ambush for one of Damanda's underlings in a hidden vault,[20] easily slaying Ezekial.[21] On reaching the surface, however, he was soon captured by Damanda; upon learning that Araluen's touch disintegrated vampires in a flash of light, she decided to keep him alive so that he could keep her moving. Nonetheless, he prepared a stake while they prepared to ambush the party coming after him.[22]

When the party finally caught up to the zone where the vampires were ready for the ambush, Fallon cleverly clued them as to the fact he wasn't alone.[23] He turned agains the vampires, however, just in time to prevent Lex from slaying Elowen; he staked her, but she retaliated just before disintegrating, slaying Fallon.[4]

After his death, Fallon was redeemed by Araluen.[24] She challenged the Rotting Man that same night, placing the day of his death as Mirtul 7.[2]
