Nothing is known of Hal's background.
Hal can commonly be found in and around Plainview. However, he has been known to frequent multiple locations throughout New Austin and West Elizabeth. He walks around, acting like a common citizen. He can do anything a regular citizen would do, like work on the machinery in a town, go to shops, or, in MacFarlane's Ranch's case, sit around a fire and listen to violin or banjo music.
- Hal appears to share the same character head with Nathanial Johnston, Clyde Garrison, Ralph Bagley, Barney Nugent, and Tripp Lockley.
- Hal can often be seen selling newspapers in multiple settlements.
