Hare is a sorcerer living in Hort Town. He has been portrayed as Cob's minion in many adaptations of The Farthest Shore, and appears as the chief slaver in the 2006 film.
He leads a squadron of four to five men and a personal guard of two men. He is an avid businesssman and a talented leader. But at heart, he is a coward, and is ready to lick his master's feet if he bids it. He is the chief of guard at Cob's castle. He was driven off by Arren and never seen again at the Tallest Tower, where he personally oversees Ged's and Tenar's execution-to-be.
