Zachary 'Zach' Palmer is a half-human, half-fae. He was the roommate of James Gallagher. He has a prodigious appetite and a loose relationship with the truth. He is willing to trade information about the Demi-monde, such as where the next Nazareth will be held. Zachary has acted as a go-between for the Quiet People, is friends with Stephen and appears to have an unrequited love of Elizabeth.
Zachary is helping to integrate the Quiet People into society, taking them on pub crawls and introducing them to the latest 50 years of pop music. He is helping Elizabeth establish an above ground nursery for Quiet People children.
