When Marplet began to build the Skyrrman illegally, the Res aB'tyrr went to the Five to protest, and Harr was sent to deal with it. He refused to see them, because the Skyrrman is his brother-in-law's inn; Harr is married to Marplet's sister.
Kithra reports that he's trying get money to buy support back in Skyrr. He allies with Men-dalis, and when Carbinia's son is caught pickpocketing for the third time in a year, Harr gets the Five to refuse to pardon him, turning Carbinia against Theocandi, which aids Men-dalis in the Thieves' Guild election. For this, Men-dalis promised to pay him back from the Guild treasury.
When Jame meets Archiem Arribek sen Tenzi, she tells him of how Harr sen Tenko allowed the undeclared trade war between the Skyrrman and Res aB'tyrr to go on. When the Archiem comes to Tai-tastigon on Winter's Eve, Harr presides as a judge in the Skyrrman-Res aB'tyrr trial, and is thereby responsible for the trustworthiness of his witnesses. When it is revealed they are lying, Harr looses his position as Skyrr representative on the Five. It is said that there would be war in the hills of that.

We went to the Five to protest and were sent to the Skyrr representative, Harr sen Tenko. He wouldn't even see us.' 'Even if he wasn't the most corrupt magistrate in the city,' said Rothan, 'his wife wouldn't let him. We found out afterward that she's Marplet's sister.' "

[…] 'So it's money he'll be after […] he has access to the city treasury, but that will end when his appointment does. […] I expect he'll take all he can without getting caught, but a backer or two later wouldn't hurt him either.' […] after the way he embarrassed Theocandi by trying to get Mistress Silver's son executed.' […] 'And when Men-dalis is elected and pays Harr back from the Guild treasury seven-fold,' "

You are a false magistrate and a corrupt one as well for letting this situation ever develop. Your position here is forfeit. Now, get out.' […] he stalked out into the night, passing his kinsman without a word or glance. There would be war in the hills again over this; but whatever its outcome, his part in the affairs of Tai-tastigon had ended."
