At 355-million-years-old, Bastien is the first Fae. He was over 180 million years old before the next Fae, Tse-xo-be, came into existence. To the Fae, he is a sage, a legend, having seen the world evolve over a period of time that even the immortal Fae have a difficult time comprehending. He is also a bit of an apparition, last seen by anyone, Fae or human, thousands of years ago. As the story unfolds, it is unclear whether Bastien exists in the physical world. With no tolerance for Fae politics, he is rumored to have given up on the physical world and returned to Naeshura several millennia ago. One thing is certain, if Bastien still exists in the physical realm, he will only be found if he wants to be found. What isn't clear is what role he would play if he were to appear, and what power would he possess.
