Hawkeye Gough is one of the Four Knights of Gwyn and the leader of the Greatarchers, who wielded giant bows that fired large, dragon-hunting arrows.
Ironically, despite his name and renowned marksmanship, he believes to have been blinded.
Gough reveals through conversation that he is well-acquainted with the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo. The blacksmith was likely the one who forged Gough's Greatbow and armour as this would explain why Gough's Hawk Ring is found in a chest behind him in Anor Londo.
Gough's armor has a medallion, "bequeathed by the Lord Gwyn Himself, and the dragon bone pauldrons are symbols of the highest honors".
His gauntlets and leggings were "crafted of similar material to the gauntlets worn by the Silver Knights".
There he creates innumerable carvings, through which he achieved personal enlightenment.
