The leader of the Cirque Du Freak who was loved and highly respected by the performers. He is later on shown to be Desmond Tiny's son, Lady Evanna's brother and even Darren's half-brother.
Mr. Tall, or Hibernius, owned and operated the Cirque du Freak. He was the son of Mr. Tiny ( Desmond Tiny or Mr. Destiny) and the brother of Evanna. However, this was not known until his death. During the War of Scars, he was known as a neutral bystander and could not have part in the war or side with either the vampaneze or the vampires, although he had many vampire friends including Larten Crepsley and Darren Shan. Mr. Tall was telepathic, and could see the future. He was very cryptic when asked about future events, however, but shortly before his death he was less vague when telling Darren about the outcome of the War of Scars. He was also very quick and silent, and many believed he could teleport himself.
Mr. Tall was killed by Morgan James, a vampet and former police officer known by Aliss Burgess, with a simple gun. He died defending Evra Von, a snake-boy, and his family when R.V, former ecowarrior turned vampaneze, took Evra's son Shancus hostage. The vampet and vampaneze cried out, bringing up the point that Mr. Tall was not permitted to interfere with the War of Scars. Mr. Tall denied doing so saying that the vampaneze had come to his home and were directly threatening his 'family' (the Cirque liked to think of themselves as a family of freaks) and he had to step in.
Hibernius was liked and loved by many, and he is dearly missed
