--Who's Who V2


Once a Significant (under the alias Farstalker), the young Faraker was a swashbuckling ranger fond of the ladies and one-time lover of Rhynwa's. He reluctantly accepted rulership of Lianth when his identity was revealed, and was assassinated but a year later during the collapse of the Dalencian Empire. Schneider worked for him at the Lianthi palace and considered him both his boss and a friend, and since the Madness has been hearing Faraker's voice (as well as others of his friends, enemies, and cohorts) manifesting some of his thoughts and fears.

It's not that I never liked him, far from it. It's just that I couldn't really respect a man with his responsibilities who spent all of his time chasing after women. The fact that one of these women later became my wife has nothing to do with it. Really.

Well, I do have to say I am sorry Faraker is dead. However, what he was doing gallivanting around the land instead of ruling his country I will never know.

Montasi, you guys are being harsh on him. He was a good duke. He didn't especially want that kind of responsibility, but in the end he did it well. I can relate.

Hey! That'll be enough of dissing the Man. He was a great duke, a true hero, and one cool guy. No one knew as much about stylin' and profilin' as Faraker. So lay off!

Died of poisoning.

1. The name the young Duke Faraker took while swashbuckling across the countryside.
2. Rhynwa and Luthien's son, Gordon Farstalker ap Luthien (named in Faraker's honor), generally goes by the name Farstalker in the various futures we've visited.
3. Farstalker was also the name Sway gave to the giant spelljamming hovercraft they built from the remnants of Malcar's Death Scar, also in honor of Faraker. The Death Scar had looked a lot like a Borg cube, but under the architectural guidance of Katherine Shienwold, the Farstalker was rebuilt as an attractive spherical fortress powered by magical artifacts (Malcar had used captive ghosts to power his, but those unhappy spirits were freed by Sway). The Farstalker was later sabotaged and destroyed by Malcar, no thanks to Kynvelyn and Fleegle the would-be hijackers.

Flicker is the fourth incarnation of the Sunfighter, a demonic hybrid cursed to destroy humanity who overcame that destiny to become one of Ataniel's five true immortals. His past incarnations have been Sunny/Lian, Janther/Alain, and Threnody/Shalini. (The future ones will be Timrin and the immortal Kyria Vesper.) The Sunfighter has powerful emotional bonds to his previous mortal hosts, pieces of whose souls remain in the composite. The name of the demon is Tjekanefir Lord Vestaya, and this demon is a fully participating half of the symbiotic Sunfighter, not a conquered or conquering being. The Sunfighter does not require food or drink, does not sleep, is immune to many poisons and most forms of mind control, and immolates upon death. Flicker himself is a Riklandic ski scout, a Norse elf of compact build and unexceptional size, with long blond hair. He is also, though it has come into play exactly once (in the Trade Council Building), a thief. His major talent is actually that he retains the substantial knowledge base and array of talents from his previous hosts. He is also generally considered one of the stablest of Atanielites, mentally speaking. "Flicker" is actually his Norse eponym; his full name is Eren Messala, and lately Riklanders have taken to calling him Ragnarokkr for his role in the recent Ragnarok.
