Chief scout of Brackenholme, Hogan spends weeks and months at a time in the wilds of the Dyrewood . Working alone or alongside the Branches of the Woodland Watch, he has recently taken an apprentice for the first time in many years, Whitley. He’s finding the experience challenging and the youngster a hindrance – the last thing he needs is to be playing nursemaid to some dreamy-headed teenager. Hogan and Whitley find Drew in the Dyrewood in Rise of the Wolf, and take him back to Duke Bergan in Brackenholme. He appears briefly in Nest of Serpents, where he gives Whitley a warm welcome after she returns to Brackenholme. His fate after the Battle of Brackenholme is never revealed, but it is assumed he is alive, or his death would most probably have been mentioned.
