First Hunter Vanguard

"Tallulah Fairwind never turns down a dare."
— Tallulah during her meeting with the Speaker about becoming Hunter Vangaurd

Tallulah Fairwind was a Hunter who was appointed by the Speaker as the first Hunter Vanguard. She was eventually murdered by an Ahamkara and replaced as Hunter Vanguard by Caliban-8.


Early Years and Becoming the First Hunter Vanguard[edit]

After the destruction of the Iron Lords, the Last City was engulfed in turmoil. Tallulah aided the Speaker in trying to install a sense of order by helping form the Consensus alongside the Titan Saint-14 and the Warlock Osiris. She was selected to serve as the Hunter's representative on the Consensus as the first in a long line of Hunter Vanguards.[1]


At some point in her career as the Hunter Vanguard, Tallulah was playing cards against a kind-looking old grandfather. Dealing their hands was an Exo and apparent friend of the Hunter Vanguard's, Caliban-8. The game started well for Tallulah, and she excitedly envisioned herself telling the story of her winnings back at The Tower. However, at some point during the game, both Tallulah and Caliban took notice of the true nature of the other player sitting at the table and discovered that it was actually an Ahamkara, a shapeshifting, wish-granting creature, disguising itself in human form. After this discovery, the Hunter Vanguard continued to play against the Ahamkara, eventually coming down to a bet for her life. It is believed to be here that she also gave Caliban-8 the Vanguard Dare, saying that if she lost her hand (and subsequently, her life), he would succeed her position as Hunter Vanguard.

Caliban called Tallulah's bet, and immediately begged and pleaded desperately with the Hunter Vanguard to take it all back, not to leave him. However, before the cards were down on the table, the three members of that game knew who won the bet. Upon losing, the Hunter Vanguard tossed her bow to the exo. As the Ahamkara came around the table to collect its winnings, Tallulah looked at her friend, who was speechless in horror, and simply said "A Dare's a dare, man. Good luck."

She was then killed by the Ahamkara; according to Caliban-8, she did not scream.[2]
