Aeon (Real Name: "Faustino Vidal") is the main antagonist of Riftwalkers. Posing as the self-assured CEO of the Spanish watchmaking conglomerate, Pantheon, Aeon is also its leader in its role as an interdimensional organization dedicated to siphoning and conquering other worlds rich in magical energies for his nefarious machinations. He seeks to use the apocalyptic Dimensional Convergence to his advantage in gaining interdimensional control of all the realms.
Aeon is half Goetian, a race of elvish aliens relying on stellar energies as their source of magic and living. He is the father of Melquiades Vidal.
Aeon comes across as a tall, physically well-built man of pale complexion in his 50's. He has been described by admirers of his products as "easy on the eyes". His salt-and-pepper hair is maintained in a formal, neck-length fashion and he mostly seen wearing a pair of shades, which cover his otherworldly golden eyes as indication of his hybrid lineage.
Indicators of his arcane side include the aforementioned pale skin and curved markings on his upper back, shoulders, and cheeks, which the latter has been unabashedly commented by Aeon as "weird birthmarks". He also has pointed ears.

—Aeon's cataclysmic goal
Domineering yet gravely composed, Aeon's harsh and cruel upbringing in his Order-ravaged reality molded him into a man bent on converging all realities into one, then rebuild them in a way that fits his megalomaniac desires, all the while yanking the chains of those who survived the impact of his goal. Tyranny is Aeon's defining characteristic, prominently manifested by imposing his iron-clad will through conquering worlds and dimensions beneficial to his cause and coldly eradicating anyone who dare to correct or criticize him, even those within his circle. He is shown to be an even worse master to the denizens of the Darklands after he had disposed of Gunmar during his skirmish.
Decimaar Blade: A greatsword of Trollish origin that once belonged to the Gumm-Gumm warlord, Gunmar. Aeon claimed possession of it after killing the Gunmar of his reality, as well gaining dominion over the Darklands to subjugate its denizens to work for him. It still functions the same when it was under its former's wielder's possession but with added capabilities enchanted into it by Aeon's stellar magic.
- Blade Beam: The blade generates a wave of stellar energy to attack enemies from a distance.
- Redirection: The blade can absorb energy coming from magical attacks to be redirected back at those who fired it first. It can also redirect energies produced by Quickenings and alien tech as well.

—Aeon to a berserk Armadura
- Strength: Aeon killed a Troll slave by choking him until his grip shattered his neck. He was able to leave Jamie in a near-crippled condition after landing a series of punches directed at his open spots. Aeon was capable of going toe-to-toe with Gunmar in their duel during an ambush in the Darklands, although their fight created Achilles' Heels located in his lower back, shoulder, and left wrist.
- Durability: ....
Swordsmanship: Aeon is an accomplished swordsman who pressures his enemies into revealing their weak spots as they attempt to damage him. To compensate for his three weak spots, Aeon's fighting style is rather slow and emphasizes on assailing his enemies upon close range.
His swordplay implements measures which makes his opponents lose their balance, giving him the opportunity to assault a barrage of power blows and fierce slashes designated to overwhelm defensive measures. The ferocity of Aeon's swordsmanship has the tendency to leave opponents rendered incapable of counterattacks.
Star Magic: ....
- Achilles' Heels:
