In the RPG
In Dark Factions
Though noble born, Falconcrest was but a boy when his family was deposed. Thus, he is more familiar with the ways of a bandit than a courtier. Falconcrest does not trust Aliden Perenolde (expecting him to be as duplicitous as his father), yet respects him for his deviousness. The plan to take Lordaeron lands worked better than he expected, and Falconcrest jumped at the opportunity to lead the Syndicate faction in Stromgarde in the Arathi Highlands. Most nobles there serve him.
Far from Perenolde's control, Falconcrest slowly grooms the rogues under him to work against Perenolde and the northern Syndicate, although he knows he must move slowly and methodically to make sure his forces are strong enough before he strikes. Falconcrest is younger than Perenolde and is prepared to bide his time until he is ready.
In Lands of Conflict
Lord Falconcrest is a mysterious man who commands the Syndicate in the Arathi Highlands. He is only in his forties, has red hair, white skin and light blue eyes and dresses in flowing, light garments to keep the sun from burning his sensitive skin.
Lord Falconcrest was one of the many lesser nobles under Lord Perenolde. He never liked the older man, but he admitted that Perenolde had a good idea from time to time, and thought it was a fine idea to work with the Horde. After they were exiled, he believed the Syndicate should be under his control as he blamed Perenolde for the loss of their holdings. He thinks he would have been able to get lesser sentences from the Alliance instead of exile to the wild to fend for themselves like peasants. He does admit that their plans to take Lordaeron lands have worked better than expected, and grabbed the opportunity to lead the Syndicate faction in Stromgarde in the Arathi Highlands. Most nobles there serve him.
Far enough away from Perenolde's control, Falconcrest is slowly grooming the rogues under him to work against Perenolde and the northern Syndicate, although he knows he must move slowly and methodically to make sure his forces are strong enough before he makes the schism. He is younger than Perenolde and is prepared to bide his time until he is ready.
