Fal was one of the Seven Riders who served the Unseelie King.


Fal was a son of Mannan and had lived almost since the beginning of time. Along with his siblings, he served as a Rider of Mannan, doing the bidding of the Unseelie King. In the old days, he hunted giants and monsters with his siblings.

In September 2012, Fal and his siblings were sent after the Blackthorn family to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead for the King. Fal, Delan, Ethna, and Airmed went after Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn in Cornwall. In a battle that broke out, the Riders initially overpowered the two. Fal managed to corner Julian against the edge of the cliff nearby Malcolm's cottage. As he moved to strike, Emma charged him from behind and stabbed him in the back with Cortana, killing him, to his siblings' surprise and anguish.[1]


Fal was very arrogant and sadistically enjoyed fighting and killing his victims.
