Hawks heart is so good that I have trouble seeing him become a villain. However I think it could have happened in a world where he was never saved and somehow slipped through the cracks. But I also see him as the type of ambitious poor kid determined to get away and make something of himself. The only thing to hold him back would be his weird loyalty to his mom and maybe his dad.
I also find it very hard to see Hawks in any timeline go full evil villain. His empathy would have to be so completely squashed and him taken advantage of so many times to make that happen. If anything, the only villain AU I could see him in is as a villain in name only or someone who operates outside the law but his worst is really only questionable if not justified.
A favorite flavor of that for me is him growing up to be a gang leader, but instead of getting into turf wars, illegal business ventures, etc. he's just more like his neighborhood's guardian whose nasty reputation is really just to keep his section of his city safe, and he only ever gets rough to give his threats teeth for those who feel like challenging him.
“Doctor! Happy Mother’s Day~! We got you some flowers!” Rather than store-bought, the flowers have clearly just been wrenched out of the dirt and stuck in a clear glass vase with water... Though that may actually be better for the flowers.
“Mmn... Happy Mother’s Day, Doctor.” And Red’s just gonna embrace Clara for a few seconds before letting go.
“Heh, I couldn’t rightly just let these two dig up the entire garden on their own, so I just helped them pick out the best flowers. Happy Mother’s Day, ‘mom’.”
Clara’s just stunned by all this for a good few seconds before she manages a small smile. “Ah... Thank you, all of you.”
We met a few new characters this past season, two being Red and Galahad. This scene was filled with tension, as it was the beginning of the final climax in Ezra's route. Just when Ezra and MC appear to be cornered by Red, all their friends start to show up. I couldn't help but laugh at Red here, who was likely thinking wtf, who are all these people.
Red was a terrificly terrible antagonist who was truly terrifying at points. I do hope she shows up in another route at some point, possibly Lavinia, because she is just too good to never see again.
We did not get much time with Galahad, but in this time we have met a very kind hearted character who quickly found his way a part of the group. I do hope we get to see him again in the future, as this would be a waste just to see him in these few episodes. His interactions with Lucas, comparing their swords was absolutely charming. Should Galahad be given a route in the future, I'd certainly read it.
