Elletra noticed with a start that Hawkeye was no longer carrying his beloved cavalry saber and Martese revolver.

A heavier, pearl-handled revolver hung on his right hip in the classic style, a set of large bullets lined up beneath it.

She suppressed an urge to shudder. If the Hawkeye had been dressed for a fight before, now he was ready for a war. With a start, she realised the sword also carried a fleur-de-lis motif and his coat of arms on the crossguard, and looked up into his gaze.

    A deleted scene from Airships. Later partially used:

    I wanted to explore the transformation of Hawkeye’s character and the toxicity of his fight against his own nature. This is partially seen in later chapters of Airships, and will form a central theme to its conclusion.
