"Gunship, come in. Hawk, we need an evac in the south tower."
"Roger that, sir. We're coming."
―Anakin Skywalker and "Hawk" — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

"Hawk" was a clone trooper pilot who served in the Galactic Republic Starfighter Corps during the Clone Wars. Bred from a human template, the bounty hunter Jango Fett, he often performed escort, drop-off, or extraction duties for Jedi General Anakin Skywalker's 501st Legion.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

"Hawk" was a clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett; created and trained on Kamino as part of the Galactic Republic's new military.[1] Following the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Hawk served as a gunship pilot for the Republic Navy.[2]

Battle of Christophsis[edit | edit source]

During the Battle of Christophsis, Hawk flew a LAAT/i gunship to rescue Jedi Generals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as their clone troopers after their position was overrun by Separatist battle droids. As Republic troops as they were forced to abandon their position, Hawk picked up the survivors on the roof of a building.[2]

Battles of 20 BBY[edit | edit source]

Hawk's LAAT/i at Umbara

In 20 BBY,[3] Hawk was present at the Battle of Umbara where he transported clone troopers of the 501st Legion to the surface of Umbara.[4]

Hawk later dropped off Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka Tano, and Rex on the planet Onderon, where they were to train Saw Gerrera and Lux Bonteri's group of rebels that were fighting against the new Separatist leader of the planet.[5]

Battle of Scipio[edit | edit source]

"Hawk, we're gonna need air support once we're on the ground."
"You'll have it, General. Me and the boys are ready to fly."
―Anakin Skywalker and Hawk[src]

In 19 BBY,[6] Hawk and the rest of Skywalker's fleet were dispatched to retake the Outer Rim planet Scipio, the base-of-operations of the InterGalactic Banking Clan that had recently been occupied by the Confederacy. Upon entering the Scipio system, Hawk and other pilots emerged from the three Venator-class Star Destroyers that had arrived to retake Scipio. General Skywalker, heading to Scipio aboard a gunship, contacted Hawk via comlink, telling the clone pilot that he would need air support once he reached the surface of the planet. Hawk reassured Skywalker, informing the General that he and his wing mates would be ready to fly in support of the General when he need it. Hawk and the other pilots proceeded to engage with the Separatist flotilla's vulture droids in their Clone Z-95 Headhunters. Breaking through the Separatist blockade, Hawk and his comrades were able to reach the atmosphere of the planet. Under orders from Count Dooku, the Separatist blockade proceeded to retreat from Scipio, abandoning the droid forces stationed outside the Main Vault of the InterGalactic Banking Clan on the planet surface.[7]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

"Clone pilot Hawk was originally in the Clone Wars movie, called by Anakin for an extraction from the B'omarr monastery on Teth. That sequence was cut from the movie—which may have ended up saving Hawk's life, because as it originally played out, that rescue gunship would have been shot down by a vulture droid."
―"The Hidden Enemy" Episode Guide detailing a deleted scene from the Clone Wars film featuring Hawk[src]

Hawk first appeared in "The Hidden Enemy," the sixteenth episode of the first season of the animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The episode was directed by Steward Lee, written by Drew Z. Greenberg,[2] and released on February 6, 2009.[8] Like all clone troopers on the show, Hawk was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.[2]

Hawk was originally slated to appear in a scene of the animated theatrical film Star Wars: The Clone Wars that preceded the television series of the same name. In the scene, Anakin Skywalker called Hawk for an extraction from the B'omarr Order Monastery on Teth, however, at some point during the extraction, Hawk's gunship would've been shot down by a vulture droid. The sequence was ultimately cut from the movie, saving Hawk from death in the process.[9]
