- "Hareb, that Seven Cities nobleborn with the permanent sneer. Gods, I could kiss the man."
- ―Dujek Onearm, at the Battle of Black Coral
Captain Hareb was the noble-born officer in charge of the eleventh company of Onearm's Host during the Pannion War. He was originally from Seven Cities and was described as having a permanent sneer.
During the Battle of Black Coral, Hareb's company was airlifted by quorl into Coral under the cover night along with the rest of Onearm's Host. High Fist Dujek's forces were soon engaged with Pannion Domin Beklites, Urdomen, and Seerdomin. The Malazans held their own until they were attacked by waves of undead K'Chain Che'Malle K'ell Hunters. Once they ran out of Moranth munitions, the Malazans were slaughtered by the dozens.
Amidst the carnage, Hareb sent a squad to secure the safety of the High Fist. Only one squad member survived the search to find Dujek holed up in a Coralessian building, his elite Untan bodyguards dead. The High Fist was relieved to learn that Hareb still held his position and that Twist and the Black Moranth had halted the Hunters' attack by bombarding them from the air. Hareb's Sappers used the opening to boobytrap the path behind them as they prepared to retreat.
