DarkHawk was genetically designed from the DNA of a Human mother and a Shaevalian father. At 6'5 and 250 pounds, the resulting hulking Shaevalian figure stands apart from other Humans. Proud of his heritage, Takagari always carries his muscular frame with wide, confidently drawn-back soldiers and an erect posture. He has shoulder-length, auburn hair, normally kept straight. A pair of deep, steady brown eyes once softened his imposing figure, but an eerie red tint now burns just below their surface. Tribal tattoos cover his face, forearms, chest and back. At first glance, his tattoos look to be one piece of full-body art, though, on closer observation, it becomes clear that the Shaevalian has adorned his body with many different tattoos which pay homage to the Shaevalian and Sith religion he strictly follows.
DarkHawk has an intense discipline towards his studies and physical conditioning, and finishing what he starts. This has given him a reputation as having an impeccable work ethic and man of his word. However, his own inability to break his promises has had him carefully choosing what he will commit to and an inflexibility around where his promises result in actions that harm others.
Obsessed with the ancient Sith teachings, DarkHawk has developed an endless thirst for knowledge of the Dark Side of the Force. He spends so much time fantasizing of ancient Sith Lords that he has developed his own arrogance about his own abilities and powers to a point of feeling superior among his peers regardless of their skills and talents. This has served him well to gain knowledge and seize opportunities that lay before him, but has caused conflict with those he feels above and he has passed on opportunities he feels are beneath him which may have served him well.
DarkHawk, despite his reserved loner nature, has a cunning side that comes out when he does interact. He spends his time observing small details about what’s going on around him and picks up on subtle facts others may miss, giving him time to assess situations and get at true intentions. It allows him to achieve his goals, but many are uncomfortable in his presence finding him too sly and calculating
All who gain power are afraid to lose it, and Takagari "DarkHawk" KogaRyu is no exception.

Because of this calculated approach to isolated duels, Takagari "DarkHawk" KogaRyu has a harder time taking on multiple opponents at once at higher skill levels.
Sith DarkHawk: DarkHawk prefers to engage his enemies at close range, relying on his hand to hand or other melee weaponry skills to quickly dispatch them. While at range he utilizes his talents of stealth and remaining unseen to close in at any chance. The Night Sister Bow and Electro-staff are among DarkHawk's personal favorite weapons. These weapons are used to stall enemies until DarkHawk can create the opening that he needs. He has trained extensively to use these weapons alongside his martial arts in order to create that needed space for the killing blow. While Takagari is proficient at both melee and range, his preference for melee combat limits his experience fighting from a range perspective as he constrained his ranged weaponary to the Night Sister Bow.
