Fal was a son of Mannan and had lived almost since the beginning of time. He was much older than the Wild Hunt, and much more powerful. In the old days he hunted giants and monsters with his siblings, but chose to serve the Unseelie King as one of his assassins.
In 2012, Fal and his siblings were sent after the Blackthorn family to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead for the Unseelie King. Fal went after Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn in Cornwall, along with Delan, Ethna and Airmed.
Alongside his siblings Fal fought the two parabatai and 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.
Fal was very arrogant and enjoyed killing his victims, seen when he laughed while preparing to kill Julian.
Fal was very tall with bronze hair that resembled metallic thread woven into a thick braid that hung halfway down his back. He wore a bronze half mask as well as bronze armor etched all over with designs of waves and the sea. He also carried a longsword on his back that was visible over his shoulder.
