Who is in command of this jump station?

—Travis Falk, GEMINA: The ILLUMINAE Files_02

Travis Falk is the Team Commander that leads the BeiTech acquisition team in the Terra Day attack on Heimdall Jump Station.


Travis Falk is very levelheaded and, even in stressing situations, remains calm. While taking over Heimdall Jump Station, he strictly follows instructions given by Leanne Frobisher, keeps the team organized, and even seems to find it quite amusing to see the habitants' fear.[2]

He is also extremely intimidating; even his battle-hardened underling and Alpha Squad leader Fleur Russo fears his wrath. When Russo blatantly disobeys his orders, he almost cordially invites her into the late Commander's office, which he's assumed charge of. When she arrives, he attacks her, purposely holding back to make sure she gets the message but is left intact to hunt down the Heimdall survivors. He does this all with "almost casual brutality" and a smile on his face.


Travis Falk has blond hair, which is shaved into a short fauxhawk, and ice blue eyes. He is tall and heavily built like an ice miner with "a biceps bigger than a head", according to Sam Wheaton. On his chin, he has a tuft of hair. He is of Norse descent.[3]


Takeover of heimdall[]

Travis Falk leads the assault on Heimdall Jump Station. His entry is assisted by Operative Rapier, who tricks the House of Knives into smuggling them in, and he proceeds to kill the existing leaders and commandeer the station.

Skills & Abilities[]

Travis Falk is very skilled at combat. He proves this throughout the attack on Heimdall and when he attacks Fleur Russo when she blatantly disregards his orders.

He is also very logical: he plans carefully and is very tactical in how he attempts to get the wormhole back online.
