Hawkins is a fictional character created by H. P. Lovecraft, who makes his only appearance in the 1928 short story "The Call of Cthulhu". He is a member of the Emma of Auburn, although his role is uncertain. When Donovan successfully opens Cthulhu's vault in R'lyeh, the "quick-eared" Hawkins is the first to hear the creature's "nasty, slopping sound." As the crew continues to listen, Cthulhu emerges, killing Donovan, Guerrera and Angstrom. Hawkins' fate isn't made explicit, but as he did not escape the island with Gustaf Johansen and William Briden, his death by Cthulhu may have simply gone unwritten, or he might have been swallowed with Cthulhu when R'lyeh re-submerged.
