"And they'd have us seek the Lords of Cinder, and return them to their moulding thrones. But we're talking true legends with the mettle to link the fire. We're not fit to lick their boots. Don't you think?"
— Hawkwood

Hawkwood the Deserter is a character in Dark Souls III. He is voiced by Blake Ritson, who also voiced Griggs of Vinheim from Dark Souls and Royal Sorcerer Navlaan from Dark Souls II.




Hawkwood is a deserter from Farron's Undead Legion. He decides that he is not fit to fulfill his duty of searching for the Lords of Cinder, so instead takes up residence in Firelink Shrine. Once the player defeats the Abyss Watchers, he will disappear from the shrine.

If speaking with Andre or visiting a grave beside the shrine, the player will come in possession of Hawkwood's Shield, which he left behind for the Ashen One.

Once the player has acquired the Twinkling Dragon Torso Stone, Andre will give the player Hawkwood's Swordgrass, which contains a message challenging the player to a duel at the mausoleum in Farron, where the Abyss Watchers bonfire is located. If the player defeats Hawkwood, they will acquire the Twinkling Dragon Head Stone. If Hawkwood kills the player, he will take the Twinkling Dragon Torso Stone. The player can reacquire it by killing him.
