While Dom and Rose were just children, they witnessed some village boys by the stables kicking what seemed to be a rock. Dom, who had just returned from hunting, rescued what was actually a hawk fledgling and gently nursed it from dying. He would visit the kitchens everyday for scraps for the bird, until it was strong enough to hunt on its own.
It has brown eyes and is predominantly brown with a white underside.
Dom found the hawk when it was just a little bird. He treats it as one of his closest and oldest friends, feeling furious after Bartel shot and crushed it, and even more after he ate it. When Dom suggests to Sei two whistles for a signal, he somberly remembers his pet hawk.
- The hawk returns in Book 2 to give Dom an orb of fire in the Spirit World, revealing a similar-looking phoenix, a potential ally for Dom. Whether this is the hawk itself or a completely different being is unknown.
- The hawk can be summoned by two short whistles. Two short whistles is also one of the signals Dom suggests to Sei in Book 2 Chapter 4 to stop Hex's wagon drivers.
