One the day of the Rosalyn Trust competition Hara interrupted Mab, Zoolah, Sorrel and the finalists Britta, Jewel, Sky and Vashti in the conference room of the Traders' Hall to warn Mab that the Star of Deltora must be ready to sail by dawn, but Mab assured him that they would be ready in time. Soon before the challenge ended, Hara found Britta alone in an alley, and immediately hurried her back to the meeting place, so that they arrived just as the clock bells tolled.
Hara set 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.
