Horse lord by Agatha-Macpie Horse lord by Agatha-Macpie
Hettar is a fictional character in the David Eddings book series The Belgariad followed by The Malloreon. A dark and brooding Algar warrior, he is the adopted son of Cho-Hag, King of Algaria. Hettar is a Sha-Dar (Clan Chief of the Horses)—a person who can telepathically communicate with horses. He is known as the Horse Lord in the Mrin Codex and other similar texts.

He is a lean, tall man with a hooked nose and a head completely shaved except for a long, flowing lock of black hair (this scalp-lock is worn in traditional Algar fashion).

When he was seven, a Murgo raiding party murdered Hettar's parents before torturing him and leaving him for dead. Cho-Hag found Hettar a couple of days later and eventually adopted him as his own son. As a result, Hettar has a legendary hatred of Murgos (his eyes go completely flat at the mere mention of the word "Murgo"), and will often go out of his way to kill them.

Murgos are very much aware of his feelings for them, and his reputation has developed to the point where he's said to be a thousand feet tall and wear a necklace of Murgo skulls.

He speaks very little, but has a very dry and ironic sense of humour. He often provides supporting comments when Silk makes a funny remark.

He eventually marries a girl named Adara, who is Belgarion's cousin, and has an undisclosed number of children.

************************************

Fils adoptif de Cho-Hag, le roi d'Algarie, Hettar est peut-être le moins bavard des algarois. En effet ses parents ont été tués sous ses yeux par des Murgos alors qu'il était très jeune avant d'être trainé et abandonné dans les plaines désertes d'Algarie. Cho-Hag l'a alors trouvé et recueilli comme son fils mais Hettar a conservé toute sa vie une haine viscérale des Murgos. Il devient, à la grande joie de son père, un Sha-Dar, un homme pouvant se lier à l'esprit des chevaux, comme il n'en naît qu'un par génération. Ce pouvoir s'avére bien utile dans la quête de la Belgariade.

Hettar apparaît peu dans la Malorée car le Seigneur des Chevaux (tel qu'il est nommé dans les Prophéties) ne doit pas participer à cette quête.

Il se marie à la cousine de Belgarion : Adara, une algaroise avec laquelle il aura un nombre d'enfants considérable =).

Yeah! Super dessin! J'ai commencé à lire la Belgariade y'a un mois (pas malin avant les examens, je pensais qu'à lire la suite xD) et je dois dire que c'est le personnage que je préfère =P
