- "Mr. Hawk, that will be enough."
- ―David Donovan
Mr. Hawk was a pirate and a sea cook aboard the Sea Star. When a young Bill Turner came aboard the ship, looking for a safe passage to North Carolina, he was assigned to work with Mr. Hawk in the ship's galley. Mr. Hawk began to teach Bill about pirates and the Pirate's Code. When the Sea Star docked in Bermuda, Mr. Hawk and the rest of the crew betrayed Bill by calling him a stowaway and had him imprisoned, so that they could sail on freely. Bill later escaped and hunted down his former crewmates. He then marooned Mr. Hawk and the rest of the crew on an unknown island.
