Herman, with Princess Flame

This article is about the hermit. For Blaze's father, see Sir Herman the Nearsighted.

Herman is a grouchy hermit who lives at the Hermit's Hideaway. He became annoyed when Sir Blaze arrived, and agreed to help Flicker lead the other knights away so that Blaze could prove himself to them by rescuing Princess Flame in a staged kidnapping, since Herman wanted Blaze out of the hideaway.

In an attempt to get rid of the bog beast in the hideaway as well, Herman told the knights that the beast kidnapped Flame, and they attacked him. Blaze gave him food to end the battle, and Herman left to become an actor.
