The Shattering was a period of upheaval for the fae. Next to the sidhe's retreat to Arcadia, perhaps the greatest occurrence during this period involved the treachery of High King Falchion. Falchion (when he is mentioned at all) is remembered as a traitor and an oathbreaker who betrayed an entire kith to its destruction. Few dispute the truth of his betrayal of the Lords of the Mound (a noble kith, related to trolls). His name is synonymous, to some, with sidhe treachery. He was cut down in final battle at the World's End; a great, rushing darkness took his body.
