Hawkeye (Bishop)


Katherine "Kate" Bishop is the youngest daughter of Derek Bishop, an international publishing magnate, and a Manhattan socialite. Despite being an emotionally distant parent, she admired here father and did everything she could to gain his attention and approval during her summer breaks from boarding school. Her mother Eleanor was estranged from her father and was often gone on vacations until she died in an accident in Colorado when she was young. Her only other family is her older sister, Susan, with whom she has a tenuous relationship.

The regard she held for her father quickly diminished when she accidentally witnessed his hand in a few nefarious activities and decided to conduct her own investigation. This spurred her on to follow him to a meeting with a supervillain who later found her and held her hostage. Already an independent-minded young woman then, she attempted an escape and would have been captured were it not for the timely intervention of Tony Stark and the Avengers. Her recruitment came shortly after striking a rapport with a few of its members.

Recent Events

She was recently tasked by Tony Stark to keep an eye on Thomas "Tommy/Speed" Shepherd and William "Billy/Wiccan" Kaplan, being of their age group. She has been leading the "young Avengers" ever since.


Kate is driven, ambitious, independent and brutally straightforward. She is always the first to express her opinion and she is not the sort to get along well with others. But she is ridiculously talented and the kind to doggedly pursue her objectives.

RP Hooks

  • Avengers: Kate is one of the youngest members of Tony Stark's Avengers.
  • Manhattanite: If you're part of New York's rich elite, chances are you would have met her in one of the boring, stuffy parties and gatherings she has to attend now and then.


  • Clint Barton (Hawkeye): The first Hawkeye, and Kate's former mentor, though these days, she is also his babysitter. She shares joint custody with him over Lucky, their lovable golden retriever.
  • Anthony "Tony" Stark (Iron Man): Her boss. Everything she could say about the billionaire genius playboy philanthropist could fill a blog, but it would only fuel his massive ego, so she won't. Kate has a tremendous amount of respect for Tony, which is only rivaled by her perpetual exasperation towards him. He most recently tasked her to look after the other young Avengers recruits, which Kate has taken on reluctantly, but soon grew into the role.
  • William "Billy" Kaplan (Wiccan): One of the first members of the Young Avengers, Kate straddles the strange line between "commanding officer" and "friend" as far as Billy is concerned. But he is her responsibility, so she looks after him, even in the times when he wishes she wouldn't.
  • Thomas "Tommy" Shepherd (Speed): Also among the first members of the Young Avengers is Tommy, who inexplicably looks identical to Billy despite the fact that the two of them are not related. It's a confusing mystery, but like Billy, Kate is resolved to look after him, whether he likes it or not. Fortunately, he seems to like it. Unfortunately, it's because of his massive crush on her.
