Mr. Tall, or Hibernius Tall, owned and operated The Cirque du Freak.
In the Books
Mr. Tall was the son of Desmond Tiny and the brother of Evanna. However, this was not known until his death. During the War of the 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 the 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 lead by Alice Burgess, with a simple gun. He died defending Evra Von, a snake-boy, and his family when R.V, former eco-warrior 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 the 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.
Hibernius and his sister were created because a Vampire named Corza Jarn begged Mr. Tiny to allow him to have children so he used magic, and mixed his blood with a pregnant she-wolf, whose children (Mr Tall and Evanna) could have children with either the Vampires, or the Vampaneze, or both, in the case of Evanna.
In the Movie
Mr. Tall is not as nice as his book counterpart. He seems to be a bit scarier as well. He doesn't like any involvement in the Vampire-Vampaneze war and will try to keep his Cirque out of it.
