II.) Letter of Introduction :
Some consider me a traitor. Others do not. … Not that I care.
I know in my heart that I am Klingon and honor the ways of our people.
For decades I served our armed forces and even achieved the rank of Lt. General, brought honor to the House of Rha.
When Chancellor J’mpok dragged our Empire into a war with our allies, the Federation, I called him out in an open session of the High Council, was tossed into Rura Penthe simply for doing as honor required of me.
If not for my son, Thoreon, our noble house would have fallen. Yet, it survived as he distanced himself from my … accused dishonor … to protect that which our family has worked hard to achieve.
As a warrior, I endured for weeks before a human warrior named Jonas and I escaped that accursed place. We retreated into Federation terrority where friends in Starfleet gave us shelter and a way to again join the fight.
J’mpok led the Empire onto a path of dishonor. I wanted to help see the honor of our people restored.
Starfleet recognized my service to both the Klingon people as well as our former alliance, gave me command of a ship. As part of their 1st Cavalry Division, I have fought against the forces of the Empire and its current allies.
Make no mistake. I continued to fight FOR our people.
Yet, when shared enemies such as the Borg and Undine surfaced to challenge all of us, I joined with those advocating for a restored alliance.
Finally, with Borg on both doorsteps, both sides began to listen. Both sides remain locked in conflict, but some of us on both sides have set aside such conflicts (if such is truly possible) to meet these shared threats together.
Friends on the High Council helped with the restoration of my personal honor, allowing me to at last return home to the Empire.
It is good to be home where my bed is again hard, the bloodwine plentiful … and I can BBQ all the tribbles in want at my leisure.
Today I have the honor of serving as Joint Forces Commander of the Alliance Central Command -- commanding from my flagships I.K.S. Qu'In 'an bortaS and U.S.S. Beliskner with my command support team of yo'wey waDIch ... aka. 1st Brigade Joint Forces Combat Team.
Together, the members of Alliance Central Command have stepped outside the current Federation-Klingon War to take the fight to our true and shared enemies ... the Borg, Undine, Terran Empire, True Way and others.
And today, I sit drinking bloodwine with my brother warriors at the Gates of Sto’vo’kor… warriors who not so long ago I faced in battle.

IV.) Background Information :
Currently, Hauk serves as Joint Forces Commander of the Alliance Central Command -- the I.K.S. Qu'In 'an bortaS and U.S.S. Beliskner serve as his flagships.
One of his goals is to see the Klingon Empire restored to a path of honor ... and so in his own way, he fights **FOR** the Empire!
Make no mistake ... Hauk's heart is Klingon ... and that of a warrior.
Before his exile began, Hauk was the head of the House of Rha in the Klingon Empire as well as a General of high standing within the Klingon Defense Force.
However, he chose to speak out on his belief that the Klingon Empire was showing dishonor by turning against the United Federation of Planets.
As a result, he was ultimately stripped of his lands with his house turned over to one of his two adopted sons while he was imprisoned.
While in prison, he met a Starfleet officer who impressed him with the honor he showed in hand-to-hand combat, befriended that officer and together they escaped.
Leaving the Empire behind, Hauk fought hard to help create an alliance of officers and personnel from the Empire whom felt as he did ... and wished to fight to see the honor of the Empire restored.
In the end, Hauk's honor was restored with help from allies on the Klingon High Council under the agreement that he would lead on of the joint forces operations and thus help chosen elements of the Klingon Empire to work with elements of the United Federation of Planets -- despite the current Federation-Klingon War.
Hauk thus now holds both the rank of Vice-Admiral in Starfleet and Lt. General in the Klingon Defence Force. He serves as Joint Forces Commander of the Alliance Central Command.
