Harmony Lightbeard (voiced by Jack Black) is the guru of Meriloft. As part of his teachings, he removed a letter of his name to make it "lighter".
Harm'ny is the leader of Meriloft, the place where Vella lands after escaping Sugar Bunting, her home town. Levina, mentions Meriloft as she is preparing Vella for the Maiden's Feast. She says that Meriloft already had their Maiden's feast, and that they are hard to compete with because of all their beautiful feather decorations. Harmn'y has sectored off Meriloft from the rest of the world, making it almost impossible to leave. He also convinced every one to enact in " lightness" which actually means giving up a vowel in your name, living in the clouds for the rest of your life, and taking care of ugly, oversized birds. Everyone is required to make an offering if they want to meet Harm'ny, because the people of Meriloft do view him as a prophet, if not a god. Though he claims it is "an opportunity to make yourself lighter" though he actually gets to keep anything you offer to him through a complicated slide system. He panics when Vella notices her offering fall out of his nest, grabbing feebly to get it back.
This is evidence that Harm'ny Lightbeard is a money-grubbing fraud, not a holy advice guru. Be wary when you encounter him though it is only for a short conversation!
