Biography

Sun and Moon

Faba was first seen when he asks the player character to help battle Team Skull grunts harassing a Slowpoke. Upon beating Team Skull, Faba offers to take the player character and Hau to Aether Paradise as a reward for helping him. At the Aether Paraside, it is revealed that Faba doesn't like people referring to him by name alone when Wicke greets them. When the player character and Hau try to save Lillie, Faba battles them to stop them from interfering with Lusamine's plan. Upon losing, Faba agrees to let the player character, Hau and Gladion into the secret lab. Faba ambushes them when when they go back to the elevator. Upon losing again, Faba feels intimidated by the children and lets them pass.

Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

In Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, after completing the main game, Aether Foundation is taken over by Team Rainbow Rocket. Faba stands in the player character's way to help Lusamine and they team up with Lillie to defeat Faba. Upon beating him, Faba once again admits defeat and after rescuing Lusamine, loses his rank drastically all the way down to janitor, making his employees higher than him. Faba then tries to make an effort in becoming an actually loyal crewmate of the Aether Foundation.
