Father Hackett was a monk from the Edgeville Monastery. He was kidnapped by a Kinshra raiding party, along with Father McGruder and Sisters Lara and Esther from the Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede, on orders of the witch Lensig, then disguised as Captain Dulcin, to be sacrificed in the Tomb of the Fallen so that their virtuous blood could breach the final ward guarding the Wand of Resurrection.
While his blood may have been virtuous enough, it was given involuntarily, for Hackett and the others had been starved into giving their blood. As such, it was not accepted and the protective ward reduced his hand to a bloodless stump before throwing him away, causing his spine to snap when he hit a statue, which resulted in an extremely painful death.
