Hazel is one of Salem's associates. His early life and how he came to join the group is unknown.

However he seems to have a personal history with Ozpin, and judging by his comment "We've dealt with their kind before" in "The Next Step", he may have battled against Silver-Eyed Warriors in the past.


Meeting with SalemEdit

After the fall of Beacon, Hazel attends a meeting with Salem and the rest of her associates at her lair. He questions how a "novice" like Ruby Rose was able to defeat Cinder Fall, recalling that they have successfully dealt with her kind before. Salem then instructs him to meet with the White Fang leader, Sienna Khan, to ensure that they fall into line.

In MistralEdit

Once in Mistral, Hazel helps Oscar Pine get a ticket from a ticket machine at a train station by hitting the top and forcing one out. He tells the boy not to let something as small as that hold him back.

Arriving at the White Fang headquarters, Hazel appears before Sienna Khan, stands his ground against her threats and is prepared to convince her to cooperate with Salem. To his surprise, however, Adam murders Khan after planning a coup to become the new leader of the White Fang. As Khan’s corpse is taken away, Hazel confronts Adam about his actions, angry at not knowing anything about his plans.
