Fallon Knight is the youngest member of the Priya Club. Native to Washington, D.C., she took off to explore the world on the day she turned 18. A long string of paparazzi followed along, for the ride, just as she had planned. After all, Fallon’s job is “being Fallon.” Knowing this part of her journey won’t last forever, she never wastes an opportunity to make headlines.
Her beloved father died when she was still in single digits. Her mother, a native Californian, returned to Beverly Hills a few years later, and has not been back to Washington a single time since. Fallon’s brother dutifully takes his family out to visit her twice a year.
Fallon’s best friend within the Priya Club is Ulrike Anderssen.
Her twin brother, as handsome as she is beautiful, lives a life far removed from the one she has crafted for herself. Falcon (yes, great name) married very young, had kids right away, and spends more time than he’d like unsticking Fallon’s groupies from the edges of his life. He loves his sister and he wants her to choose a conventional life, one out of the spotlight, as much for her future as for his.
His pleas fall on deaf ears. He knows why. He knows what drives Fallon to do the things she does, in the she way she does them. Loud. Public. Unrelenting. And he loves her all the more for having an innate bravery he was born without, twin or no twin.
