Captain Hardinge was a Misthalin captain in the novel Legacy of Blood. He was tasked with escorting the Morytanian embassy to Varrock. On the way to Varrock, he rushed a rioting crowd of peasants, unhappy at not being able to kill them for being Zamorakians.
He led the embassy sent to parley with the Kinshra regarding Sulla. However, they came across the Kinshra while they were being attacked by the Untainted, and so helped to reinforce the Kinshra against them. After Arisha was taken by the Untainted, he escorted the Kinshra and Castimir to Paterdomus, where they helped reinforce the Salve, cutting Tenebra off from his forces and ensuring that Misthalin won.
