Councilman Hoede is a rich mercher from Kerch. He is a member of the Merchant Council and owns an extravagant house on the Geldstraat in Ketterdam.

He holds the indentures of three Grisha: a Fabrikator named Yuri, a Squaller named Emil Retvenko, and a Healer named Anya.

Six of CrowsEdit

Councilman Hoede, along with Jan Van Eck, uses his boathouse to test the effects of jurda parem on Grisha. He takes both Anya and Yuri captive, forcing them to ingest jurda parem and perform Grisha magic. After giving parem to Anya, she becomes out of control, taking control of Hoede and forcing him to pick up a knife and cut off his own thumb.
