Role 1: These people do things in mountains, pastures, hills, fields, forests...

Role 2: These people do various things. They can find you a house, a hotel, send you something, kill you...

Role 3: Atom....in English

Who is the one with the above roles? Bonus: What role is missing?

Okay, I think I have all the pieces to this one...

Role 1: These people do things in mountains, pastures, hills, fields, forests...

SETTLER. The listed location types are playable spaces in the board game Settlers of Catan.

Role 2: These people do various things. They can find you a house, a hotel, send you something, kill you...

AGENT (as per @JohnLaRocque's answer: "real estate agent, travel agent, mail agent, secret agent").

Role 3: Atom....in English

INDIVIDUAL - you can't really get much more 'individual' than a single atom. We even use the adjective 'atomic' to mean "of or forming a single irreducible unit or component in a larger system" (Source: OED).

Now, as to who might be 'the one with the above roles':

I believe from a lot of Googling - boy, is someone going to have some fun with my search history now - that being the 'Settler, Agent and Individual' is something to do with citizenship or legal terminology, with particular connotations to the 'Sovereign Citizen' movement in the States - a group who rejects federal law and refuses to be bound by it.

In which case, the role that is missing may well be:

The PERSON, which web-famously features heavily in a probation hearing between one such 'citizen' and a judge in a video and transcript from 2014 which occasionally goes viral every now and then and does the rounds on the Internet...

This would fit with the title too since:

The judge in this particular viral video is Judge Hurley, hence the use of 'hurl' in the title...

  • $\begingroup$ By the way, why don't you do one last step and explain the title too? $\endgroup$ – George Menoutis Aug 9 at 8:16
  • $\begingroup$ @GeorgeMenoutis As a board game buff it was recognising Catan that did it for me! The rest fell into place with the connection to 'agent'... $\endgroup$ – Stiv Aug 9 at 8:19
  • $\begingroup$ Nice job with the title too :) $\endgroup$ – George Menoutis Aug 9 at 17:30

Not a full answer, but,

"Agent" fits Role 2 suspiciously well. (real estate agent, travel agent, mail agent, secret agent)

  • $\begingroup$ Mail agent? Is that a thing? $\endgroup$ – Dr Xorile Jan 7 at 4:15

Could it be

The book: "Indivisible (Native Agents)" by Fanny Howe

Role 1: These people do things in mountains, pastures, hills, fields, forests...

Native, all things are in nature

Role 2: These people do various things. They can find you a house, a hotel, send you something, kill you...

Agents (Like @John LaRocque already said)

Role 3: Atom....in English

Indivisible, Atoms are indivisible

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope, that's not it. However, you are really close to role 3 $\endgroup$ – George Menoutis Jan 7 at 20:03
