Mr. Hand is a mysterious person that observes events in the Mansion through a network of cameras and informants. We have yet to see Mr. Hand himself, only the back of his chair and his hand. It is confirmed by dialogue that he is human.
It is implied by dialogue that Mr. Hand is a wizard and was the one that managed to trap the Operator into the elevator.
