Hawk is a somewhat easily distractible and clumsy adventurer. In fact, he is rarely very clever and cunning. More emotional than sensible, he sometimes forgets certain details. He is also very sensitive and appreciates Knuckles friendship.
Powers and abilities
While Hawk seemed very weak in his debut performance (perhaps since he was up against a robot), it was later shown he was very skilled in the martial arts, when he reappeared in the Chaos Emerald Martial Arts Mash-Up tournament.
