Falconer was one of the Super Predators on the Game Preserve Planet. Falconer notably used a Falcon to track prey from above. As well as an ongoing rivalry with the Jungle Hunter Clan, Falconer and his clan also abducted humans and other dangerous game to hunt on the planet.
On the Game Preserve
Falconer and his fellow clan members begin hunting on the Game Preserve Planet. The Berserker, Falconer, and Tracker Predators first test their prey's sanity and emotion. The trio try to make a trap for the humans by killing one of them and using him as bait to lure them, however they didn't fall for the trap.
Falconer, Tracker, and Berserker attack the humans, who had arrived at their Hunting Camp where trophies were kept as well as the Crucified Predator. However, the humans managed to escape the camp whilst under fire from the Super Predators. Meanwhile, Falconer sent his mechanical falcon to locate the fleeing humans, who had fallen into the river. Upon the falcon returning to Falconer at the camp, the three Super Predators de-cloaked. The Super Predators are later able to track the humans to inside Noland's hideout when Royce, firing explosive rounds from his Auto Assault-12, produced enough heat to attract them. They attack, but in the process Tracker is killed along with Nikolai, and the humans managed to escape again.
Falconer chased the humans. However, Hanzo decided to stop running to face the lone Predator. Hanzo used a katana to fight against Falconer, who was using his Wristblade. Hanzo succeeded in inflicting a few blows but the Falconer proved too strong against him and managed to slash Hanzo across his back. In a smart manuever, Hanzo lunged at the Falconer, sidestepping him and delivering a fatal blow, killing him, but he also impaled the human. The Predator fell to the ground dead, followed by Hanzo.
Personality and Traits
The Falconer Predator was shown to possibly be the only honorable Super Predator in the film as he dueled Hanzo one on one without any use of his weaponry besides his Wristblade, although it is possible that he was merely toying with Hanzo and underestimated him, which would prove to be a fatal mistake. The Falconer was incredibly agile and strong, being able to throw Hanzo a far distance and was also a skilled close-quarters fighter, using his Wristblade and Gauntlet to parry Hanzo's strikes. The Falconer seemed to savor the fear and toyed with the human as he urged Hanzo to fight him. This Super Predator seemed to be the smallest in Berserker's hunting party.
List of Notable Victims
The Falconer Predator was armed like his clan brothers with a single, elongated Wristblade as well as a new Cloak. The Falconer used a mechanical falcon to track his prey, for whatever the falcon saw the Predator could also see, and he had a full metallic glove on his left hand for the falcon to land on. In the film, however, the falcon landed on Falconer's shoulder. The Falconer Predator's Bio-Mask is much bulkier than others, likely to hold the mechanics. During the hunt as the humans tried to escape, he was able to track their footprints on the ground with an unknown signature. He is also the only of the three Super Predators to not have a Plasmacaster although he might have been a Young Blood.
- The Falconer Bio-Mask bears some resemblance to a real-life falcon; whether this is partly the reason he is named as his is, or merely a reflection of his name, is unknown.
- Falconer was the only member of the Super Predator Clan that was not armed with a Plasmacaster.
- In concept art, the Falconer was shown with Freddy Krueger-like claws on his left hand. He would of likely used these to skin his victims.
- Although never seen in the movie, the Falconer Predator can summon many Falcons as a form of air-strike in the Predators and AVP: Evolution mobile games.
