Hamnet is Zombie Zeke's pet snake. For at least ten years,[1] Hamnet was rarely seen without Zombie Zeke. When the Host returned to Tranquility to reclaim his fountain of youth, as a means of torture, he bit Hamnet in twain, killing the serpent and leaving Zeke in grief.[2] During the final battle between the Host and the town of Tranquility, a revived Hamnet rescued Zombie Zeke from being pecked at by Lenore, the Typist's raven.[3]

  • Hamnet is the name of William Shakespeare's only son.
  • Zombie Zeke recounted his deal with the devil to Hamnet before being run off the road by the Lindo sisters. [4]
