Hillman Hunter was an Irish property developer from Earth who was tricked by Zaphod Beeblebrox into moving to a planet created by Magrathea. He interviews various gods, as he is keen to employ Thor to keep the society he has created on the planet devoutly controlled. He acts as not merely a stereotypical Irishman but a "stereotype Paddy from a bygone era" using phrases such as Bejaysus and invoking leprechauns. He has considerable problems with the Tyromancers from an alternative reality who have also settled on the planet.
Behind the scenesEdit
Like Ford Prefect, whose name came from the Ford Prefect car, Hillman Hunter's name derives from an automobile sold in the United Kingdom in the 1960s.
