Agent Hauser was the leader of Wolfram & Hart's Special Ops Team. When Corbin Fries threatened to destroy Los Angeles if W&H didn't get him off on his current charges, Hauser and his men attempted to secure his son- Fries having planted the bomb he was going to use literally in his child-, only for Angel to beat them to it. When Hauser stated that Angel was out of his depth in his current role as they had a conviction that he lacked, Angel informed Hauser that mercy was a more powerful force than conviction, demonstrating the last of his own mercy by forcing Hauser's rifle under his chin and causing him to blow his own head off.
