Killed by Yeerks
- "Hork-Bajir who had never known the word "obedience" now obeyed me. Because I was the seer? Because I was wiser than they? No. Because I had destroyed their past and now they had no choice but to follow me into a future they could not imagine. The monsters in our valley were destroyed that day. Only a very few survived. But that was all right, because we didn't need monsters anymore. We had become them."
- ―Dak Hamee
Dak Hamee was a Hork-Bajir seer and freedom fighter during the Yeerk invasion of Hork-Bajir homeworld. He is the husband of Aldrea-Iskillion-Falan, father of Seerow Hamee, grandfather of Jara Hamee and great-grandfather of Toby Hamee.
Dak Hamee mated with Aldrea after she became a Hork-Bajir nothlit. Together they conceived a son, Seerow Hamee. Seerow Hamee had only one known child, Jara Hamee. Dak's great-granddaughter, Toby Hamee, is a seer just like him.
Dak Hamee was always different his friends and family. As a seer, Dak is able to comprehend much more than the average Hork-Bajir. His ability to understand set him apart from a very young age.
- "You are the seer. You were born to teach your people a new thing. Maybe you were born to teach your people to fight. Maybe your purpose is to teach Hork-Bajir to kill Yeerks."
"I hoped I had been chosen to show my people all the things your father tried to show the Yeerks. I wanted to teach them music. Writing. Art. I wanted to teach them to keep track of time, the passing of years. To make tools, to build. But your father gave those things to the Yeerks, and now we see the results. Maybe I was a fool to think that knowledge would make my people happy."
"There will be time to think about all that after we find a way to annihilate the Yeerks. We can save your people, if they will learn to fight! They don't have to be destroyed."
"Yes, they do. Either they will learn to fight and hurt and kill, or they will learn to be slaves. Both will destroy them. Killers or slaves. They will be one or the other. Killers or slaves."
- ―Aldrea-Iskillion-Falan and Dak Hamee
After her family was stationed on the Hork-Bajir homeworld, Aldrea befriended Dak Hamee and told him about her life, her people and her family, even showing him the morphing technology. Dak, in turn, showed Aldrea the simple life that his people led, high in the trees, harvesting bark.
Soon after Aldrea met Dak, the Yeerks arrived, intending to conquer and enslave the Hork-Bajir. Sensing an Andalite presence on the planet, they fired their Shredders from orbit, destroying Aldrea's home and killing her family. Fighting off the Yeerk Esplin 9466 and his forces, who had begun to infest Hork-Bajir, Aldrea and Dak escaped to an area of the planet known as "Father Deep". There, they discovered monsters and settlements built by another species inhabiting the planet called the Arn.
The Arn revealed that they had created the Hork-Bajir to care for the trees above; without the trees to provide atmospheric balance, the Arn could not survive. Aldrea used this knowledge to pressure the Arn into creating more monsters to fight the Yeerks with. During the ensuing battle, Aldrea was able to get a message to the Andalite home world, and later, an Andalite force led by Alloran-Semitur-Corrass arrived.
However, Alloran soon tired of the seemingly hopeless guerilla warfare that his small force was forced to conduct against the much larger Yeerk force, while Dak also became bitter and angry at how he had been forced to help his people become killers. He used the Arn's technology to create a Quantum Virus that would kill all Hork-Bajir, denying them as hosts to the Yeerks. Aldrea discovered his plan and she and Dak worked to prevent the virus's release, Aldrea's dedication to try and save Dak's people helping Dak realize that he loved her despite their differences. However, due to Yeerk intervention, they were unsuccessful, and the virus was released throughout the planet, killing a huge percentage of the population. During these events, Aldrea morphed a Hork-Bajir female named Delf Hajool and accidentally stayed too long in morph, trapping herself and becoming a nothlit. The Andalite forces soon abandoned the Hork-Bajir world to the Yeerks, leaving Aldrea behind.
Dak and Aldrea married and had a son, whom they named Seerow after Aldrea's father. Two years after his birth, they were rooted out and killed by the Yeerks, and Seerow was made a Controller. Before they died, both Aldrea and Dak agreed to make a record of their memories and personalities – known as an Ixcila – and had an Arn named Quafijinivon store them in his lab. However, Dak Hamee's Ixcila was destroyed during a raid.
