Halana, or Hal, is a ranger from Kessig on Innistrad.[1][2] She is the partner (in both work and life) of Alena.[3] They are trackers, hunters, and protectors who live in the depths of the dark Ulvenwald.


The coming of Emrakul to Innistrad caused a series of ever more bizarre and horrible events. Murders and cult activity increased, and the people near Ulvenwald forest began to change. They grew fibrous mats of tentacles and chanted Emrakul's name in weird worship. Hal and Alena traced the activities of Emrakul's hidden cults and confronted them. In the face of such an existential threat, the two hunters joined forces with their former enemies, the werewolves, to battle Emrakul's mutated throng.[4][5]

However, with the onset of eternal night, their battles against the werewolves have resumed.[3]
