Hawkeye (Barton)

History

Raised by an abusive alcoholic father and an enabling mother, Clint and his brother Barney were orphaned when Clint was nine, and when the rest of his family couldn't take them they ended up in the system. It wouldn't last long, tired of the foster system and group homes, the boys broke themselves out when Clint was thirteen and they ran off to join the circus.

Working as roustabouts, Clint and Barney found a new family at the circus, unfortunately it was a criminal one, so while the boys were taught by Trickshot and Swordsmaster how to shoot and fight, when it came out the reason they were being taught was to help their mentors commit crimes there was a falling out. The end result was Clint left for dead at the side of the road and his brother and Clint's mentors (separately) in the wind.

Lacking for skills besides those he learned at the circus Clint had to fend for himself, doing the odd jobs for other carnivals, and when money got tight, hunting down and robbing other criminals until, a show he was putting on in Coney Island was interrupted by costumed vigilantes fighting crooks. Everyone including Clint stopped caring about the show and watched the action. The next day Clint made himself a costume and by the end of the week he'd stopped his first crime, a jewelry store heist, only the cops showed up when he was on his way back to the store with the loot, and people got the wrong idea and arrested him. Clint would have gone down for it, but his previous work robbing crooks had put Clint on SHIELD radar and they came to him with an offer he couldn't refuse, join them or go to jail. He picked SHIELD.

He took quickly to SHIELD training and quickly made a name for himself as a SHEILD agent carrying out numerous missions for the organization some shady some not, but it was better than being a crook and SHIELD gave him a family.

Until the Chitauri invaded and Clint found himself a member of another family: the Avengers. Following the battle he got himself a new and better costume and split his life between SHIELD and the Avengers. If two jobs wasn't complicated enough, Clint ended up getting his hands on a pile of money (better not to ask about where), an apprentice, and a dog.

Recent Events

Clint currently lives in Brooklyn and splits his time between SHIELD and the Avengers.

Personality

With the crappy childhood, the crappier mentors, dabbling in crime and a bit of jail time Clint Barton has been through the ringer a few times. All of that trauma has left some scars and made Clint wary about trusting good fortune. Oh sure, you might be good in the short term but that's how life gets you, things go great then /bam/ it starts burning down again. As a result Clint is always watching for things to start burning down and when it does it's his instinct push people away to save them from the flames. This makes him distant from a lot of people and phobic about responsibility or other things that might stop him from bailing and taking it all on himself when things go bad.

That said responsibilities and connections do have a way of happening anyhow. He is loves being an Avenger, and It would take a lot to make him give it up, he's a bit more conflicted about his SHIELD work, some of it's been shady as hell and it doesn't sit well with him. Clint is a genuinely nice guy, and wants to help people more than he wants to put arrows in skulls, even if the guy getting the arrow deserves it.

That said, Clint doesn't let any of that show. Outwardly he is a cocky showman with a million snarky comments and a talent for bad life decisions. Nothing bothers that Clint Barton, and he does all he can to make sure that everyone believes it.

Miscellaneous

"Okay… this looks bad. You cowboy around with the Avengers some. Guys got what? Armour. Magic. Super-powers. Super-strength. Shrink-dust. Grow-rays. Magic. Healing factors. I'm an orphan raised by carnies fighting with a stick and a string from the Paleolithic era. So when I say this looks "bad"? I promise you, it feels worse…"

"I mean, I can't miss… I'm on a team with super-humans. And one god, in case you've forgotten… The training is the only thing that makes me special. And if I'm not special, then none of this is worth it. I gave up a lot for this life. I could have been happy… Could have had a good, simple life. But I wanted to play with the big boys. And if I miss, it means I'm just another jerk with a bow. It means I've been fooling myself this whole time. And that's why I never miss."

"You asked about the Avengers. Y’wanna know the best part about being an Avenger? Having Captain America around you all the time. He just—the guy just brings out the absolute best in people. You want to be good when he’s around. You really do. Ivan, look around you real quick. Because right now? Captain America ain’t here.”

“Today sucks. I’m goin’ back to bed.”
