Mr. Hammar was an original Prentisstown man. He's shown as sadistic and often thinks about other people getting tortured whilst in his house back in the first Prentisstown. In the sequel, he carries out the tortures of the suspected memebers of the Answer in the Office of the Ask. He also kills Viola's friend and Mistress Coyle's apprentice, Maddie. He becomes a Sergeant, and later a Captain under President Prentiss's rule.
