Hunter

From NetHackWiki

A hunter, @, is a Ranger quest guardian.

If you enter the quest while wielding Stormbringer, be careful not to walk into one of them! They will also get angry, just like any other monster, if they get hit by a projectile intended for a centaur. Remember that killing a quest friendly around your quest leader results in -MAX/8 alignment penalty.

Encyclopaedia entry

What of the hunting, hunter bold?
Brother, the watch was long and cold.
What of the quarry ye went to kill?
Brother, he crops in the jungle still.
Where is the power that made your pride?
Brother, it ebbs from my flank and side.
Where is the haste that ye hurry by?
Brother, I go to my lair to die.
