Nathan Hawk was born on april 5th 1979 in Las vegas, Nevada. Not much is known about his childhood. His father was a senator and secretly a member of the assassin order. While working as a senator his father made numerous public statements against Abstergo industries which is why the templars saw him as a threat and had him killed. Young Nathan was completely unaware of his father's allegiance to the assassin order and believed his death had been an accident. As a teenager, Nathan began to admire Abstergo's influence over other companies and even politicians. Nathan eventually became an employee of Abstergo industries in 1999, when he was 20 years old.
Employee of Abstergo industries
Hawk worked for Abstergo industried from 1999 to 2007. During this time he worked closely with both Warren Vidic and Daniel Cross. Hawk was a computer and security specialist in the security division of Abstergo. Vidic decided not to tell him about the templars because it was too risky. Cross was worried about Hawk's rising curiosity and tried to persuade Vidic to kill him "as a precaution." Vidic didn't approve this, believing that Hawk was too stupid to discover the truth. In 2007 Hawk hacked into a high security computer terminal and found out about the templars, as well as assassins and the truth about his father's death. Vidic soon learned what Hawk had done and attempted to murder him. Vidic failed and Hawk managed to escape the Abstergo facility in Rome, killing several security guards in the process.
Hiding from Abstergo
Nathan spent several months hiding from Abstergo industries and attempted to avoid any actions that would give away his location. Vidic created a plan to flush him out. In december 2007 Abstergo operatives killed Amanda Wilkes, Nathan's girlfriend. This flushed Nathan out of hiding but despite several attempts to take his life, the templars failed to kill him. Nathan was enraged and he swore to destroy the templars by whatever means necessary.
