In his adulthood, the ranger looked somewhat different. His hair was more ginger than blonde, and he wore a studded light-blue mantle, instead of typical studded-leather armor. He appeared to enjoy drinking ale.
At 15 years of age, Hank (and his adventuring party) became trapped in the Realm for a long duration. In the mid–14th century DR, his party appeared to have escaped the mysterious place, and they journeyed to Shadowdale in Faerûn. A member of Hank's adventuring group became an apprentice of Elminster Aumar in the 1360s DR.
By 1369 DR, a portrait of Hank the Ranger was displayed in Athkatla's Adventurer Mart. The accompanying text explained that he was killed and potentially eaten by Tiamat, once a nemesis to the group. However, the artwork depicted him as a youngster although he was an adult by the time he met Elminster at Shadowdale, which may indicate he was believed dead by mistake.
