Tristran Thorn (pronounced "Tristan" in the movie version) is a character in Neil Gaiman's novel, Stardust. Tristran comes from half-faerie parentage. He wants to win the love of Victoria, so he goes on a quest to find her a fallen star, which leads him to Yvaine. He falls in love with her even though she's the fallen star.
One of the quotes I adore from Stardust: "She says nothing at all, but simply stares upward into the dark sky and watches, with sad eyes, the slow dance of the infinite stars."
