Guy Montag met Faber for the first time once when Montag was walking through a park.  He saw Faber look guilty and try to hide something so he went over to him.  But instead of arresting him or anything like that, he just talked to him.  They talked for a long time and then Faber finally gave Montag his name and address in case Montag wanted to turn him in to the authorities later on.

In his previous life (before such things became illegal) Faber had been a professor.  Specifically, he had been an English professor.
