Falco is a short boy with a small build and little in the way of physical strength. He has light shaggy hair and big bright eyes that are also a light shade. Like his fellow warrior cadets, he wears the standard Marleyan soldier uniform consisting of a light jacket and pants, supply packs on the hip, suspender straps, a hard hat with a stripe around it, and tall combat boots. As an Eldian his uniform is different from that of the Marleyans in that the shirt collar has a small badge with the Eldian star instead of a small clip and the hat has a white stripe with the Eldian star on it instead of a pure black stripe. As is law in Marley, Falco also wears the Eldian armband as all his family and ancestors residing there do as well.
Falco is not made to be a man of war, and does not excel in the battlefield or at asserting himself. He finds himself wounded and delirious under enemy fire, only to be saved by his brother, and struggles to voice his concerns for his friend Gabi when she proposes a solo attack plan. However, Falco is not a coward. When Gabi is under fire he leaps from their hiding place to rush to her aide and protect her. While he is not an excelling soldier, he posses some margin of skill to have survived for 4 years in the Marleyan war.
During the Marleyan war with the Mid-East Allied Forces, Falco is present among 800+ other Eldians fighting on behalf of Marley. However, he and some of his friends such as Udo, Zofia, and Gabi are valued as warrior cadets with the potential to inherit the Armored Titan power. During the fight, Falco and some of his comrades are hit by enemy fire, killing some but sparing Falco and leaving him wounded. His brother Colt appears to save him and puts his hard hat on Falco's head before carrying him on his back while avoiding enemy fire. When Colt returns to the hiding trench with his wounded brother, their fellow cadets tend to his wounds as Gabi re-explains their objective to him. When Udo begins to panic in fear of their military failing, he wraps Falco's bandages too tightly and Gabi scolds him. Falco then wonders why they are on the front lines as cadets and Gabi explains that it is so they may be evaluated by Commander Magath for their capabilities as successors to the Armored Titan power. When Zofia begins to boast about grades, Gabi interrupts her by explaining her superiority above all the other cadets. Falco then asks her about the item she is fiddling with and Gabi grins as she shows it to him.
When Gabi offers to take out the enemies anti-Titan artillery solo, Falco shows serious concern for her safety and fears she will be hurt. He watches her execute her plan of attack and once Gabi is successful in derailing the train, she begins to flee only to be shot at by one final surviving gunmen. This pushes Falco over the edge and he jumps out of the trench to try to save her. However, an ally named Galliard transforms into a Titan and shields Gabi from gunfire while her and Falco collide as they both dive for the ditch. Falco looks in awe as the Titan stands above him and he watches as Galliard races off and kills the last gunmen.
