Faban is an apprentice at the Crystal Palace with other fairies. At that time of Elina and Bibble's arrival, they speak to him to try and find their dorm room, only for him to look at himself in the mirror and write an autograph even though Elina didn't ask for one. He doesn't notice them flying away and continues to looks at himself in his mirror.
He is present when Azura explains the parts of the Flight of Spring ritual and gives him and the rest of the apprentices their sechedules. He is also present when Elina excels in flance, calling her a show-off, much to her dismay.
After Elina accidentally releases Laverna, Faban is shown playing fairyball with Sunburst and Shimmer. He and Shimmer then leave to check on Sunburst.
A few hours later, he asks Elina why she is still there and why she hasn't resigned as an apprentice. When Glee expresses confusion, he reveals that Ruby told him and the other apprentices that Elina accidentally released Laverna from her toad form and refuses to speak with her for this reason.
When Azura and the other guardians are poisoned, he scolds Elina for not being on watch duty (because she received a fake letter from Laverna challenging her to a duel) and questions who will perform the Flight of Spring without the guardians.
Sometime later, he informs Sunburst that the Enchantress, the ruler of Fairytopia, wishes to speak with the apprentices about the events that have occurred. Unbeknownst to him, Sunburst is actually Laverna.
As he and the other apprentices meets with the Enchantress, she informs them that with the guardians unavaiable, they must step in and perform the flight. She also helps in teaching them the steps of the ritual, with Faban shown training in magic.
On the day of the ritual, he began to perform the Flight of Spring in collaboration with his apprentices. However, upon Elina realizing that Laverna was impersonating Sunburst, she leaves to find the real Sunburst and exposes Laverna, which caused Faban to be terrified as she revealed her true form.
Upon her reveal, Laverna blackmailed the Enchantress into surrending the throne of Fairytopia, much to his protest. However, she agreed to her demands and was forced to watch as Laverna tried to destroy the first blush of spring. Upon seeing Elina risk her safety and her life to save the blush, Faban and the other apprentices channel luminsense through her, giving her the power to defeat Laverna.
In the aftermath of Laverna's defeat, it begins to snow and the blush is all but dead. Faban fears that Fairytopia is doomed, but Elina senses life in the blush and they work together to save it, completing the ritual.
At the graduation ceremony, all the apprentices have completed their studies and are rewarded for their heroic efforts to save Fairytopia. Soon after, as Elina and Bibble return to Magic Meadow, Faban said goodbye to them, almost shedding tears as they departed.
