Hank is a character from the new game made by Turtle Rock Studios, the company that brought the famous game Left 4 Dead, Evolve. Hank is one of the first hunters in Evolve that had been revealed since Evolve's first release along with Markov, Val and Griffin. Hank is a support class character in Evolve. In Evolve, the support class functions as it is named, to support other Hunters in order to bring down the Monsters. Hank, as a starter support, is a good choice to support other Hunters to take down the Monsters, in offensive ways and a little bit of a defense way. Hank was born on Mercury and his grandparents were the original founders. Hank was a guy who wasn't going to stay in one place in a very long time. Hank believes in simple things, like the value of his hard work in Shear or the joy of killing wildlife in Shear. That is why everytime Hank calls down an Orbital Barrage, he is always quiet due to the fact he really hates the creatures who are pissing him off. Fiery deaths always puts Hank in comfort. Hank is armed with a Laser Cutter, a weapon capable of inflicting great damages to the wildlife in Shear and the Monsters. However, although it is strong, it reveals Hank's position clearly. In order to fuel his real support role, Hank also arms himself with an Energy Shield, but not for himself. The shield was present in a form of a weird device that can target one ally and give the ally a temporary shield after the shield needs to recharge. Hank's deadliest weapon is his Orbital Barrage, which he says he had been given the authority to use it. Hank's Orbital Barrage can nearly perish a monster in a great way and kill nearly all wildlife in the area of effect. Hank's last equipment is his Cloaking Device that does what it is named: It makes nearby teammates invinsible until the effect ends. Combine all of these and Hank is a pretty dangerous Hunter in the field.

In-Game Bio

"Born on Mercury and the descendant of the founders of Mercury's colony, Hank was never supposed to be a guy who likes to stay in one place. That's why he is working in Shear now. He works by killing invasive Monsters and hostile wildlife along with the other Hunters who are hired to protect Shear from the Monsters. Hank believes only in simple things, such as cutting down things with his Laser Cutter, cloaking his fellow hunters and giving them limited shields, or the best: Calling down an Orbital Barrage to his enemies."
