He is grizzled with a hard, weathered face. He is solid and stocky with eyes like polished gems.
He joins with Furyk Karede in the search for Tuon.
He enters Gamel Lounes camp with Karede, looking for information on the army causing havoc on the Seanchan forces, which may have Tuon captive. When the camp where Tuon is held is found, he waits for Karede to meet with the leader of it. Karede takes Tuon back to Ebou Dar leaving Musenge with Matrim Cauthon. Mat's Band of the Red Hand engages a rogue Seanchan force looking to kill Tuon for a reward. The Band wipe the Seanchan force out, and Hartha retrieves Zaired Elbar's head, where it is taken back to Ebou Dar.
