History: From an early age, Dawn Granger traveled the globe, thanks to her mother’s career in the State Department, and learned smatterings of many languages and an appreciation for diverse cultures. During her high-school years, Dawn’s family settled in Washington, D.C. when her father, a highly regarded physical technician, was offered a job at me Arlington S.T.A.R. Labs. Surrounded by diplomacy, Dawn came to believe in the power of reason over force: all riddles have answers, all problems have solutions, and all conflicts are resolvable. She is an exemplary student, showing leadership abilities and a natural talent for order and organization. She is also a sly and secret prankster and has engineered a number of ingenious (although harmless) stunts that were totally untraceable to the quiet “bookworm.”

After high school, Dawn returned to Europe to attend England’s Oxford University. While mere, an inter-dimensional Crisis occurred that required the services of nearly every country’s super-heroes, military, and police forces. During this time, Dawn’s mother, in London to deliver a diplomatic pouch, was taken hostage along with me staff of me American embassy by a band of terrorists who announced they would blow up me embassy. Desperate, Dawn’s pleas for help were answered by a mysterious mingling of voices, belonging to Lords of Chaos and Order, who promised Dawn the power to make order of this chaos if she would only “say the word.” The word was “Dove.” She agreed.

Whenever danger is present, Dawn can say “Dove” and trigger the change in which Dove’s costume swirls across her body, appearing from nowhere to replace whatever she is wearing. This costume cannot be removed on low-magic worlds like Earth and hides the fact that Dove is not truly human, but a conduit for and the living essence of a Lord of Order’s mystical energy. When the danger is over,Dawn knew about the first Hawk and Dove team, but assumed she was just “another” Dove, just as there are many Green Lanterns. She was shocked when she discovered the first Dove had died while rescuing people during the Crisis. She also noticed a change in Hawk as news resources reported his escalating destructive and chaotic behaviour. Increasingly convinced that it was intended for her to become Hawk’s new partner and that Hawk needed the balancing effect of Dove’s presence, Dawn returned to the United States, tracking Hawk’s moves and charting his appearances. She deduced that Hawk was Hank Hall, a Georgetown University student, and transferred herself to the same school, to her parents’ delight. When confronted by the new Dove, Hawk’s initial reaction was angry and violent, but he came to accept and appreciate his new partner.

During this first adventure, Dove learned that Hawk and Dove were linked to Chaos and Order and that the first Dove actually died and Dawn had accepted the powers, meaning she may have been partly responsible for his death. Guilt and curiosity eventually led Dove, with Hawk, to meet Terataya, the Lord of Order who gave Dove her powers, and T’Charr, the Lord of Chaos who gave Hawk his. These two Lords had fallen in love and revealed that Hawk and Dove were experimental spells cast by the pair to prove that the two conflicting mystic houses could work together fatally injured during that adventure, the two Lords of Order and Chaos gave the remainder of their essences to make me Hawk and Dove spells permanent. This merging gave both Hawk and Dove enhanced powers, but it means there will be no new Hawk or Dove if either of the current heroes die. It also left Dawn wondering if Hawk and Dove were meant to fall in love as their creators had.
