Harryk's clue: Spar is the answer, how it fits with the others remains to be seen. I got the first part from here and the latter portion fits.

Ophiophaus's clue: the first part symbolizes i, the imaginary number. The coordinates go to a town called Us in France.

Still working on them.

I'm going to protect kestrel. the american kestrel is f.sparverius and the spar and ius parts come from what east found, the other clues probably spell ver or something...

Stem of truth = ver. Verify, etc.

Oh, I get it, the alpha and beta in a semblance of order signify to put our names in alphabetical order.
EDIT: with what koko found we have something something sparverius... It has to be kestrel

That sounds good, since in Falco sparverius, the Al could come from kestrel's, co could come from mine, spar is harryk, ver is kjhsscioly, ius is ophiophagus.
