Hara is first seen when he meets with Mab and the four finalists in Del harbour. He warns Mab that the Star of Deltora must be ready to sail by dawn, but Mab assures him that they will be ready in time. Soon before the challenge ends, Hara finds Britta alone in an alley, and immediately hurries her back to the meeting place, so that they arrive just as the clock bells toll.
Hara presumably sets sail on the Star of Deltora along with Mab and the finalists, as he is the captain of the ship.
Hara is described as a bulky man, with coal-black skin and a well-clipped pepper-and-salt beard. He has grey hair that is tied into a short tail, which is covered by a peaked cap bearing the emblem of the Rosalyn fleet.
