Falco Aesalon was a wizard who lived in Ancient Greece. Being able to transform into a falcon at will, he was the first recorded Animagus. For this amazing magical feat, he was placed on a Chocolate Frog Card.
Falco Aesalon is the former scientific name of the European merlin, before it and the American merlin were reclassified as the same species.
