The simple and only verifiable truth about the
origins of the Hawks is that they began life as
caravan guards, as so many heroes do.
The Ebonhawks are heroes, plain and simple. They save the world and protect the people within it, sometimes from themselves. There is no fixed type of Ebonhawk. They might be a terrible barbarian chieftain whose power in the might of their people; or a powerful wizard and master of the arcane who has the power to stop time itself.
The Ebonhawks stand against anyone or thing that would harm the people of the world, protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. But that does not mean that the
Hawks are all “good”, if such a thing really exists
