Hamel is the oldest member of the ‘Tree Talkers’. He is also the guardian of the Creek Gate, which seperates the world of Mavenwood and MS&L’s world in the Birds Woods.

Though Hamel is the oldest Tree Talker, his knowledge is not that of insight of the future but that of the time he has lived through and seen come and go.

Hamel is not a major character but does play a part in Book Four by defending Creek Gate. The MS&L Series does not get very detailed into Hamel’s character. Hamel does look after MS&L like a grandfather would look after his grand children.

Being the guardian of Creek Gate is very scarely argued to be the most honerable post in all of Mavenwood.
