Physical Description Hawk stands short of standard Klingon statuture, likely due to his Terran mother, but his musculature and cardiovascular system boasts the enhanced Klingon physiology. The ridges of his forehead are understated but still clearly visible.

Family

Father Unknown - Possibly Karnak, former Imperial Overseer of Galorda Prime.
Mother Unknown Human (likely deceased)
Other Family Glenn Hawking (adoptive father)
Linda Hawking (adoptive mother)
Karnak’s Bastards (formerly affiliated), an urchin street gang on Galorda Prime.

Personality Hawk is a little rough around the edges due to his Lord of the Flies childhood as a street urchin and he compensates by being overly formal in professional settings. When he lets his hair down, which is seldom, Hawk sometimes struggles to find his place.
Identifying solely with his human side, Hawk rejects his Klingon heritage with prejudice, viewing its warrior culture as senseless barbarism and its government as nothing more than corrupt warlords.
Notions such as freedom and justice are Hawk's guiding stars. Between his childhood in an urchin street gang and his service to Starfleet, Hawk is loyal to a fault, first to the ideals of the Federation which uplifted him from petty thievery and second to those who show themselves worthy of family.
Hobbies & Interests +Skilled fighter
+High dexterity/sleight of hand
+Extreme loyalty
+Duty driven

-Impatient
-Lawful Stupid
-Socially stunted
Ambitions In general, to uphold and defend the Federation Charter against all adversaries.
More personally, Hawk wishes to develop his human nature in order to quash his Klingon nature.
One day those may unite in a command position.

Since Hawk never knew his birth mother, his exposure to Earth culture came through his adopted parents, the Hawkins. Their quaint ancestral homestead near the moors of Scotland was insufficient to quell his Klingon blood, so Hawk dabbled in every human martial art and theory he came across. He still pursues these cultural studies to this day, and maintains a collection of model tanks from Earth's 20th century period.

Personal History According to Starfleet's best physiological estimate, Hawk was born circa 2356 on the streets of Galorda Prime. His childhood is a mystery even to him, as he's unable to remember his earliest years.

In the spring of 2372, Karnak's Bastards attempted to mug a human couple, Glenn and Linda Hawkins, who were performing humanitarian social work in Galorda's poorer districts. Hawk, then known only as Targh'n (Klingon slang for a dog-like individual), took injury in the botched mugging and was taken by the humans back to the Federation consulate where they worked.

It was not much later that Chancellor Gowron withdrew the Empire from the Khitomer Accords, which expelled the Hawkings along with all Federation personnel from Klingon space. The Hawkin's, not wanting to leave the wounded Targh'n to the bankrupt charity of Galorda, petitioned the Federation to permit asylum based upon the boy's dual ancestry.

After asylum was granted, the Hawkins couple entered early retirement and took their young ward to Linda's family homestead in the moors of Scotland. It was there that Targh'n, renamed Magnus Hawkins after Glenn’s grandfather, learned that there are good things in the universe that are worth fighting and dying for.

Despite the honor of his namesake, Targh’n did not feel suited to the name Magnus. While it was the name of his adoptive father's father, he felt no connection to the deceased man. He kept the name Targh'n from his asylum paperwork as a reminder of where he came from, but fully embraced the surname of his new parents. Soon he was known by a shortened version of it, eventually settling on “Hawk” as his preferred name of address.

Hawk's education was abysmal, and it took private tutoring to remedy that. Even so, when he applied for the Starfleet Academy in 2377, he passed the entry exam with flying colors.

The time at the Academy was difficult, as it was unlike his time as a street gang or the luxurious isolation he had with his adoptive family.

But Hawk loved every minute of it. The challenge of the course work; the harsh routines and discipline exercises; the dangling carrots and impossible demands, like the infamous Kobayashi-Maru test -- all of it blended into a chorus that both halves of Hawk's heritage could embrace.

When he graduated as a Security officer, Glenn and Linda were in attendance, beaming as brightly as if they had birthed Hawk themselves.

Hawk's first posting was an Intrepid class vessel called the USS Peregrine. There were few opportunities to distinguish himself, but his Chief nonetheless recognized his commitment to Starfleet and his dedication to duty. In a couple short years, he got promoted to the assistant department head role.

Hawk thrived in his duties, often allowing his Chief some breathing room. It was with reluctant congratulations that the Peregrine Security Chief let him go on to head up the Security department on the Galaxy-class USS Challenger.

The Challenger ran interdiction between the Romulan and Klingon borders which called for extended tours of duty. Hawk was awarded with the Starfleet Decoration of Gallantry for going above and beyond in a rescue mission before Starfleet pulled out of the Qiris sector altogether.

When the USS Odyssey was given a secret mission from Starfleet Command, Hawk was on the Admiralty’s shortlist of upstanding and heroic officers that could be trusted to ensure the Odyssey’s newly appointed CO would see the mission to the end.
