Hearne is one of the High Lords of Tear. He conspired against Rand and was sent to Cairhien to help distribute grain (TSR, Ch. 21). He fled to join Darlin's rebellion (LoC, Ch. 4) but eventually accepted him as king (KoD, Ch. 21). He has a narrow face and a habit of tugging his ear when furious (TFoH, Ch. 46).


  • Rand announces that Hearne is to be sent to Cairhien under the command of Meilan (TSR, Ch. 21).
  • He is in Cairhien when Rand enters the city. Rand gives him a smile warm enough for a close companion (TSR, Ch. 46).
  • He goes to join the rebellion in Haddon Mirk. Rand strips him and the others of their titles and property but says that any who surrender will be spared (LoC, Ch. 4).
  • Although not mentioned by name, he is presumably in the camp when Rand and Min visit (ACoS, Ch. 35).
  • Hearne and Simaan grow desperate and worried that the other High Lords will return from Illian and trap them in the city. Verin believes they might be willing to accept Darlin (CoT, Ch. 23).
  • Hearne and the others reach an agreement with Bera to end their rebellion providing that their lands and titles are restored and Darlin is named King (KoD, Ch. 21).
  • He is with the assembled lords who bow to Rand on his return to Tear ({TGS, Ch. 42).


He schemes a lot with Aracome, Gueyam, Simaan and Meilan (LoC, Ch. 19), though in many ways they do not trust each other (TSR, Ch. 46).


“We reached agreement. Tesodian and Simaan were wavering as usual, but Hearne was nearly as adamant as Estanda” (Bera; Knife of Dreams, Chapter 21).
