He is solidly built with a lantern-jaw and a tattoo of a hawk on his left cheek.
After being attacked by a gholam, Harnan is the only surviving Redarm in Ebou Dar.
He, along with the rest of Mat's group, joins and travels in Valan Luca's circus as a cover after they all escape Ebou Dar. After Renna Emain flees, Harnan kills her with a crossbow bolt just before she reaches Coramen.
He rides with Mat into the cursed village of Hinderstap and is attacked by the crazed villagers when nightfall comes. The group only just manages to escape the village and wait the night away before entering the village again at daybreak to find everyone is back to normal.
The Last Battle Edit
Harnan accompanies Faile Bashere as she handles the logistics of arming the forces of the Light. Unbeknownst to Harnan, Faile has a secret mission to deliver the Horn of Valere to Mat in the guise of a supply run. She receives the Horn in the guise of a shipment of Two Rivers tabac. During the run, the group is assaulted by a bubble of evil and winds up in the Blight. One night Faile sets a trap for a suspected thief. She buries the Horn and baits the trap with an empty box. Harnan and Chel Vanin dig up the Horn and are suspected of being Darkfriends. The duo trail behind Faile and follow them through one of the Shadow's gateways in Thakan'dar. In the middle of the Shadow's forces, Faile discovers her mistake when someone else tries to steal the Horn. In the chaos that ensues, Vanin flanks Faile while Harnan explains that they were looking for Mat's tabac, not the Horn of Valere. Harnan's fate is unknown, though he and Vanin are last seen running from Trollocs, Mydraal and Darkfriends.
