Harry Clearwater was a Quileute native and a member of the La Push Tribal council. He is
the father of Leah Clearwater and her younger brother Seth. He was also considered to be one of Charlie Swan's best friends. In New Moon, he passed away of a fatal heart attack. Different versions of his heart attack have been played out in the New Moon movie and book. In the book, it is implied that the cause of the heart attack was the knowledge that his daughter Leah, was becoming a werewolf. In the movie, he had a heart attack in the forest after Victoria grabbed him suddenly before the werewolves chased her off.
He was known for his ability to make home-made fish fry. His wife, Sue took his place on the council soon after his passing.
In the New Moon movie Harry was played by actor Graham Greene.
