At some point, amidst many other mundane plots, he got involved into a magickal one. He got friendly with some Nilazi and Sorcerers. Being a badass and being fun, being a leader of a mundane crew, and being able to get shit done, he was a goldmine for the sorcerers and the nilazi.
This got him access to magick rings, dead speak, vloran, drovian intelligence, defense against magick, invisibility to magickers. He wasn't "too' closely related to the magick shit, but he spent plenty of time with Hasan's group. At some point, when his crew came under fire, 'some' of his crew hid amongst Hasan's own people.
No sane Nilazi would touch Hawk's corpse. Hawk was being persued more then Hasan was. Possessing his corpse is one way to die the true death for a Nilazi.
The mere fact that a person cannot 'believe' that someone who did a lot of awesome shit, simply can NOT be someone who's not a staff pet, or dating a staffer, or an ex-staffer, or whatever the fuck, says more about that specific person then the game.
To be fair, if I knew for a fact that some mul was a mundane ranger, and had accomplished, acquired all that magical loot and been involved in everything that it was claimed of him - and if I knew that staff wasn't involved - what you described, would be exactly how I would have anticipated such a thing coming about.
I'm significantly more impressed by Hawk than I was before. Dude managed to stick to his mul (which are infamous for storing after a month or two, or else being killed) actually skill up on it despite everything dying in one hit, and figured out the silt sea without dying. Then managed to get in tight with a cabal of sorcs. He won Armageddon as a mundane, as far as I'm concerned. So kudos to him.
I'm also surprised he went as long as he did without some gemmed whiran summoning him to his death.
