Life history: Haken was a Firstcomer and member of the Circle of Nine; his function was to be their passion and to drive them forward. This function clearly shows in his character: after the Palace's crash he showed disdain for the other Firstcomers and was intent on driving the humans away from the Palace again, so they could return to their old way of life. He, like Timmain, realised that on this world it was a matter of eat or be eaten, but unlike Timmain he did not want to embrace that. He used his powers first to kill the humans, and when Timmain interfered and he was severely wounded by the wolves who helped her, he used the wolves to frighten the easily impressionable humans into worshipping him, after which he ordered them to kill them. Later, when Kaslen was injured, Aerth suspected he could only heal her while in the Palace. Knowing that Haken was there, they knew it could be dangerous, but hoping he would help his kin they went anyway. Haken received them with contempt and black sending. Timmain tried to make him understand that there was much on the World of Two Moons to love, but Haken refused to listen and attacked the others. Timmain then shaped herself half into a wolf and attacked him, tearing his arm off. Haken fled the Palace and nothing was heard of him after that. Gibra later went to look for him, but it is unknown whether she found him. There is speculation that Haken is the ancestor of either Winnowill or Rayek, or both, considering both his appearance and character, though nothing certain has been declared on the matter. It is not known how he died.
