Up until Fang was introduced into Frank Mercer's household, he was content living on his own and enjoying the benefits of having been adopted by the wealthy Baron Justin Alistair of Avonlea. Upon meeting Frank's young daughter, Harriet, all that changed. Knowing that his friend would never stay in one place very long, Fang took on the job of surrogate father to the child. He saw that she was educated, protected and taught self-defense.

- 1856 to 1875 (a. 33 - 52) -
-- 1858 (a. 35): Frank Mercer dies in duel; Fang deals with his killer.

As Harriet grew to adulthood, eventually taking on the care of her younger half-sister, Fang was a constant presence in her life. He loves H.G. as much as he would a daughter of his own and is quite proud of her accomplishments.

Fang serves as H.G.'s most trusted business associate, mentor, and sometime bodyguard.
