Chalon aided the cause through covertly investigating the dark side of Elvarre, yet it was a role he found difficult in spite of his lofty rank. Should his endeavors be exposed, he would be deemed a traitor and summarily executed, rendering his efforts in vain. The lives of his family and cohorts would also be forfeit. Therefore, he depended upon the power of his Anima to prevent even the gods from noticing his presence, allowing him to carry out his tasks in total secrecy.
Chalon is a Dutch, Swiss and a French (as Châlon) surname. The House of Chalon was a French and Dutch noble house in the county of Burgundy and the principality of Orange (south of modern-day France).
