Season 7

Harrag's ship is one of the few to survive the assault on the Targaryen Fleet by Euron Greyjoy's Iron Fleet. Harrag and his crew find Theon Greyjoy, Yara's younger brother, in the sea while en route to Dragonstone and holster him up onto their ship.

Harrag on Dragonstone.

Harrag's ship travels back to Dragonstone, and he accompanies Theon's shore party to the island, where they find Jon Snow and a group of Daenerys' advisors. Theon reports on the attack on his fleet and capture of his sister, though his explanation leaves Harrag looking unsatisfied.[2]

reminds them that Yara decreed this is no longer the way of the Ironborn due to their pact with Daenerys Targaryen. Harrag spits on Theon, and they fight each other, with Harrag having the upper hand and threatening to kill Theon if he stands up again, though Harrag makes the mistake of attempting to kick Theon where his genitals would be. Theon tackles Harrag to the ground and beats him senseless, winning the respect of the Ironborn who agree to accompany him on his mission to rescue Yara from Euron.[3]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R.R. Martin, the only character named Harrag during the events of the narrative is Harrag Sharp, also known as Harrag Sheepstealer, an ironborn raider from House Sharp that took part in the capture of Winterfell by Theon Greyjoy and was later killed by Bolton men during the sack of the castle.

"Harrag" is a somewhat common ironborn name, dating back at least to Harrag Hoare, a High King of the Iron Islands chosen at kingsmoot who reigned during the reign of King Theon Stark. He conquered Stony Shore and Bear Island, but only temporarily, before Theon Stark killed his son Ravos and expelled the ironborn from his shores.
