At some point previously, Howard signed a contract with the Order that bound his services to them for no less than a million years to become a Librarian.
When Kady Orloff-Diaz went to the Library to find information on how to kill a god, Howard kindly helped her file a request to the upstairs. However, the reply they received stated that no such knowledge existed in the Library.
Penny later dropped off a long-overdue book that Harriet Schiff had checked out. Upon inspecting the date sheet, Howard became hexed, and his body was compelled to open the door of the Poison Room. However, he resisted the curse long enough to hit a kill switch, committing suicide.
Following Penny dying and being sent to the Underworld branch of the Library, Howard was assigned to supervise him, and he suggested to Penny several times that he join his book club.
