Hectan was born on October 19, 1925 in Yumustdai, Koridai. He studied magic in high school, and went on to serve King Harold Harkinian and his brothers. However, a newly-crowned King John Harkinian fired him in 1976 for having helped create the deadly Triforce of Peace. Hectan then decided to join Ganon, and in 1993, he participated in the invasion of Gamelon. Soon after that, however, he was killed by Zelda. Since then, he has repeatedly been revived by Ganon, always dying again before long.
