Reputation

Clint Barton is an Avenger, an Operative, an Adventurer, and a n'er do well. He is known in the right circles as perhaps the greatest archer who has ever lived, and in the wrong circles as petty darn close to it. When on the job he tends to have all the answers, know the right moves, and tries to make the right choices. As for his personal life, he's not quite as on top of that.

Biography

Clint's story is an old one though it does diverge eventually. But there are any number of tales that begin as his did. Bad childhood, tough times with an alcoholic father, abuse. Older sibling, in this case Barney, trying to look out for him. Then tragedy strikes and the family's broken apart. The older brother's no longer there in the orphanage to look out for him, but thanks to the lessons given Clint's able to survive and tries to make something out of himself.

Then there's the military. High aptitude and emotional distance puts him on the fast track for intelligence work after his first few tours. He tests out with amazing eye hand coordination as well as eyesight and a real talent for making things hit other things from far away. Naturally they found a use for him. A few more tours and then the men in black suits come knocking and mentioning what could Clint Barton do for his country, or at least SHIELD.

After that it was always the job, always the mission. The next task ahead, and trying to make right, save the world, and do what you need to do to get by. But then the Avengers Initiative poked its head up and at first he had intended to be a chaperone of sorts, until things started rolling and he threw his lot in with them. Met some amazing people, and was able to put his skills to better use than just for the next intel item.

Still, Clint does keep his position in SHIELD, and keeps his options open with the Avengers. Luckily there's not much cross over negatives from one to the other. At least for now.

Character Details

Clint is a guy molded by his experiences. A tough childhood and a harsh life has led him to question authority, to not give his trust too easily, and to be aware of the people around him. He has no qualms about expressing his thoughts directly, nor any hesitance in asking questions until he gets a satisfactory answer and makes his decisions based off that. But when his trust has been earned it tends to be a thing that's difficult to shake.

To most people he comes across as gruff and arrogant, but some of the wry comments are tossed off in what could be considered in a self-deprecating manner but he'd never admit it. He's a man who focuses on his work and when he can pull himself free of it his recreation still seems to have an element of work connected to it.

Ultimately he's a guy who tries to pitch himself as hyper competent and in control, but then one can glance at his social life and see that that might not always be the case.

Relationships

Mockingbird Ex Bobbi and Clint have a complicated history, and the two find their lives intertwined in the most awkward and annoying of ways far more frequently than either can really handle.

Reboot

As of the soft reset in January 2017, previous RP will be clean-slated from Hawkeye's in-game past for the ease of getting into the character and not being saddled with a lot of history that could effect any future RP or make for awkward encounters.

As of May 2018, there's a new Hawkeye! I'm trying my best to build on, rather than disregard, my predecessors' record.

Concept

This is partially the MCU version of Hawkeye, partially the Hawkeye from the Fraction/Aja run. More the latter than the former.
