Hanu was once a pirate, and during his travels it is rumoured he fathered children all over the world. He was later hired by the adventurers Iskander Redbeard and Viserys Xarxes von Valarys as a mercenary, but soon proved himself worthy of a full share of the group's treasure. His skill with diplomacy and his dedication to the land of Altea later prompted King Davram Despard to raise him the nobility and offer him an estate in the province of Aravel. He seems to have a close relationship with the king, but how far this connection goes is as of yet unknown. It is even whispered that Lord Alessandri and the king have never been seen at the same place at the same time. Hanu was once slain in battle by jinn, but his companions restored him with powerful magic.
Hanu is a master of stealth to the point where it has been suggested that his abilities are supernatural. He is extremely skilled with blades, and also has a keen mind for politics and intrigue. His sense of humour occasionally gets him in trouble, however - he once insulted a powerful wizard and was rewarded with a thunderbolt to the face. The scars have healed, but since that day Hanu has never really trusted wizards. His experience with death years later may have damaged his sanity, as he has become obsessed with his own approaching death and desperately desires a way to prevent it. He is also becoming paranoid, seeing enemies in every shadow - this may also be part of the reason why he now spends time attempting to gather and provide for his offspring (his son Ezvan, for example). He even suspected his own companions of interfering with his children - however this proved to be justified when Viserys attempted to abduct his daughter.
