Nolan Hawke was a treasure hunter and explorer. Nolan was born in London, England in 1915. He and his sister Sammantha lived as pickpockets during the first few years of his life. When he was 12 years old, he and his sister were found by archaeologist Dr. George Sullivan after a botched attempt at a pickpocketing. Instead of turning the two children in, Dr. Sullivan took the two children under his wing and raised them himself. During Nolan's teen years, Dr. Sullivan took him on several expedtions around the world. He also had several encounters with world renowned archaeologist: Dr. Henry Jones Jr., better known as Indiana Jones. Nolan went on several adventures with Indiana, including an expedtion to Skull Island and a search for the legendary Mayan Talking Cross.

When World War 2 broke out Nolan and his friend Jack Ross joined the Royal Air Force. Nolan was present for several key conflicts including The Battle of Britain and The Invasion of Normandy. During the Battle of the Bulge Jack was killed in a firefight. Wracked with guilt over being unable to save his friend, Nolan sank into a deep depression that lasted for years.

After the war Nolan became a mercenary and a freelance treasure hunter. In 1947 Nolan was hired by MI6 agent Gwen Craye to search for the location of Jacob's Ladder, a legendary ladder that supposedly led to Heaven. Following that mission, Nolan and Gwen had an on-again off-again romance. Throughout his career he found many other famous mythological artifacts, including The Templar Treasure, The Crown of Nebtawi, Excalibur, The Fountain of Youth, and The Philosopher's stone which placed him in conflict with different groups across the globe.

In 1960, Nolan finally married Gwen. After years of adventure, the two finally settled down and had a child that they named Justin. Nolan lived a reletively quiet life, working as a history teacher in a high school near London. In 1975 however, Nolan and Justin went on one last adventure together. This lead to a mad search to keep the legendary Rod of Aaron out of the hands of Nazis that escaped following World War 2. During the search Nolan was shot and killed by former SS Officer Hans Richter.

Personality and Traits

In his youth Nolan was known for his dry sense of humor and friendly nature. He always had a tendency to look before he leapt, in direct contrast to his good friend Indiana Jones. However, Following his traumatic expericences during World War 2 Nolan became much more cynical and impulsive. Nolan readily relied on logic and reason. Although this often helped him cleverly deduce information that many others miss, Nolan's emphasis on logic also made him skeptical about accepting anything without proof.

All of his life Nolan was wracked with self-loathing and insecurities. He constantly worried about what people thought of him and went to extreme lengths to gain people's approval. Nolan believed that he constantly had to fight to be accepted by people, despite what his friends told him. He often felt guilt about things over which he had no control and, because of this, did not consider himself a hero.

When he was young Nolan was idealistic and always tried to find the goodness in others. The amount of trust that Nolan put into his friends was so strong that he absolutely refused to consider that any of them would betray him. Thus, he was devastated when he discovered that his friend Luke Williams was a Nazi Spy and was responsible for the death of their entire squad.

Nolan was always an extremely loyal, compassionate, brave, and selfless person. He also had a very strong sense of justice. He always refused to turn his back on those in need of his help. He would go to great lengths and take great risks in order to help others, particularly his loved ones. Notably, this was taken advantage of by Dr. Felix Faust when he kidnaped Gwen Craye in order to lure Nolan to Rome, all as part of a ploy for Faust to get his hands on the Philosopher's Stone and gain eternal life.
