—Hawkeye to Louise in a support conversation
Hawkeye's history remained relatively unknown, although it is speculated that, ever since his childhood, he was trained to be protector of the Nabata Desert, as he did later to his daughter Igrene even after the death of his wife. During his time as Guardian of the Desert, he met the Archsage Athos, as well as Pent and Louise. Eventually, he would meet Eliwood, Hector, and their group, traversing the desert to find the "Living Legend". He would join them after speaking to either Eliwood and Hector and traveled with them for the rest of their quest.
It is Hawkeye who is in possession of the first Heaven Seal, having received it from Athos, but since he is unsure of what to do with it, he gives it to Pent for safe keeping. Hawkeye does not appear in any cutscenes after this point.
After the war with Nergal, he returns to his desert, while he remains its guardian for the rest of his life, he focuses the autumn of his life on his daughter, Igrene who will inherit the desert and all its secrets when he dies.
Since Igrene is the Guardian during the War on Bern, it is more than likely that Hawkeye is deceased at this point in time.
Hawkeye is best described as quiet and introverted, speaking little to most of his companions. However, to Pent and Louise, he speaks his mind more often, but is usually reserved from most of his companions, an exception being Ninian, who resembled his daughter slightly.
Description: The protector of Nabata. A mysterious air surrounds him.

Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.
Hawkeye is a great unit who arrives midway through the game. His combination of high HP, strength, defense and decent resistance makes him great for combating multiple units on enemy phase. His high axe rank enables him to use powerful axes such as the Killer axe, Devil axe and the Brave axe and base. Unfortunately, his speed is right at the threshold of sometimes being able to double consistently and not being able to especially later on when promoted enemies become more common. Even with speedwings, he still won't be doubling promoted enemies (besides generals and heavily slowed down magic units) so it's not worth the investment. Additionally, his high Constitution limits being Rescued by any promoted mounted units, with the exception of Rath although that shouldn't be too much of an issue.

- Hawkeye has a unique sprite and battle animation that is different from other Berserkers.
