While growing up, Kendra Saunders’ father was murdered by a corrupt police officer. She became a police officer herself in an attempt to help people from inside the system but soon felt that she was being held back by the rules and regulations of the job.
While on yet another disciplinary suspension for breaking the rules, she encountered Hawkman. The hero told her that she was a reincarnated Egyptian princess and that the two had been both heroes and lovers in their previous lives. She thought him insane and asked to be left alone. Surprised that she did not remember him, he agreed to leave, but insisted she accept a mace and flight harness, artefacts of her past life. She took the items just to be rid of him.
However, as time passed, she came to the realization that a hero could do things a police officer never could. They could work beyond the rules and do more to help people. She decided to put the equipment Hawkman had left to good use and became known as Hawkgirl.
