Sebastian Fawkes was an author who used sigil magic to make readers addicted to his books and suck the life out of them to stay young forever.
He had black hair with streaks of grey and a goatee. He wore a cape and reminded Gordon Edgley of a Dracula actor.

His writings and mannerisms are an in-joke to the series. He mentions readers being upset when characters die, and being devoted to his works, while he enjoys torturing them. Derek Landy often sees his own readership doing the same.
