"Hathor: What song shall I play for you today, my lord?
Trevyr Blackgard: I'm in the mood for something different. How about 'The Bear and the Maiden Fair'?
"
―Hathor and Trevyr Blackgard.[src]

Hathor, popularly known as The Old Mummer of Blackgard, is a recurring character in the third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth seasons. He is an elderly mummer who has been in service to House Blackgard for most of his life, and is one of the most popular and well-known singers in the Borderlands, possibly in all of the Seven Kingdoms.

In addition to being a master musician and singer, Hathor is also a very prolific songwriter, having written many popular Borderlands folk songs.

Trivia

  • Hathor is portrayed by Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot, in Lightfoot's first-ever acting job.
  • In the novels, Hathor's role is considerably smaller than it is in the television series. Director Jeremy Podeswa, who, like Lightfoot, is also from Canada and is a professed fan of his music, pushed for Lightfoot to be cast as Hathor and also have the television portrayal of the character be based on Lightfoot himself.
  • Hathor is named after Hathor, an Ancient Egyptian goddess commonly associated with music.
