“But I have no regrets. I have served my master, married a wife, and fathered a child. I was also blessed with friends like you and Lord Pent. All that remains is to fulfill my destiny.”
—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.

Compared to the other possible Berserker, Dart, Hawkeye's Strength and Speed are much lower. Hawkeye makes up for this by being extremely resilient; his base HP and Defense are very high for a level 4 promoted unit, and his Resistance is also shockingly high for a Berserker. His Skill, though not spectacular, is better than Dart's and on-par with other axe users such as Bartre and Geitz; therefore, he should not have many issues hitting most enemies. A unique advantage he possesses over Dart is that he does not need to use an Ocean Seal to promote, which is important for Ranked runs due to the Ocean Seal's extremely high cost having a major impact on the Funds ranking.
Though Hawkeye's incredibly high Constitution may seem like an advantage for wielding heavy Axes, it poses a problem for faster-paced playstyles as his Constitution is so high that he can't be Rescued by any promoted mounted units, with the exception of Rath. His low Speed also poses a significant issue in that he rarely Double Attacks enemies, though Blazing Blade's enemies are slow enough that he doesn't often get Double Attacked himself.

- Hawkeye - Desert Guardian
Hawkeye returned to Nabata and lived peacefully in Arcadia with his daughter, whom he trains to be guardian of the desert.
- Out of all the future parents in the Elibe Series games that appears in The Blazing Blade, Hawkeye, Rebecca (due to an oversight), and Canas are the only ones who can be genuinely killed in battle, possibly due to Igrene, his daughter, already being born.
- Hawkeye has a unique sprite and battle animation that is different from other Berserkers.
