Hawkwood is an NPC in Dark Souls 3 who is an Unkindled and fugitive from Farron’s Undead Legion. Talking to him will suggest that the Lords of Cinder that you encounter are all ones who linked the fire and are all buried somewhere in Lothric. You will find him at the Firelink Shrine and you need to keep talking to him after every Boss fight to get the Collapse gesture.
Hawkwood NPC Quest
You can summon him at two location – At the Consumed King’s Garden, for Oceiros in the plaza(before the 2 knights) outside the boss fog gate. The second location is at the Archdragon Peak, just outside the Great Belfry bonfire, but here he will only help the player in reaching the altar at the far end of the ruins and will leave once you reach the altar.
He will Disappear from the Shrine once you have defeated the High Lord Wolnir, so simply collect the first 3 Dragon Stones. Talk to Blacksmith Andre after Hawkwood leaves, you will receive Hawkwood’s Shield that he left for you. Once you’ve gathered the Twinkling Dragon Torso Stone, he will leave a message with Blacksmith Andre, asking you for a duel.
He will reappear at the Abyss Watcher arena to duel you for the torso stone. Now here if he kills you, he takes it all(Dragon stones) and if you manage to kill him then you’ll get the Twinkling Dragon Head Stone.
