HawkbitAlpha (formerly ACSBehemothHellcat and Prince Darkstar) is an SBC member and Cashier who originally joined the community in May 2011, but was permabanned from the site for much of the 2010s until his surprise return in 2018. Today, he remains as an active Loyal Customer. He is also a former member and chat admin of SpongeBuddy Mania.
Having initially discovered SBC at 11 years old, Hawk's arrival on the site was marked by his immaturity and willingness to constantly argue with other members, which led to him being banned in July 2011 after being a member for only two months. Later, in October 2012, he was allowed to return, but was banned again in April 2013 for the same reasons. From here, he moved to SpongeBuddy Mania, where he remained as an active member until 2018. While contentious users are nothing new to the community, Hawk was one of the most notorious in early SBC history, as he made an enemy of many members of both SBM and SBC by repeatedly publicly antagonizing the latter site over the course of several years. This caused him to become a popular choice of villain in numerous Lits between 2011 and 2015.
Hawk's aggressive and domineering attitude made him a highly polarizing figure in SBC/SBM's shared history throughout much of the 2010s; in his late teen years, this aspect would come to overshadow his previous history on SBC, reaching a peak during his time as the original owner of SBM's Discord. On top of his long-time detachment from SpongeBob as a whole, his hardline stances against "shitposts", memes, and low-level trolls firmly split members' opinions of him down the middle. On the other hand, Hawk gained some respect for his management of of the SBM Discord, and for using his connections with SBM's staff team to get several highly-disliked members banned from the site. Eventually, Hawk's actions on SBM allowed him to be unbanned from SBC for the final time in March 2018, and two months later, he resigned as the SBM Discord's owner out of feelings of disillusionment, becoming a permanent member of SBC in the process. Toward the end of the year, he became one of the many cross-site members to be banned from SBM for protesting against its staff in the wake of the Third SBC Renaissance (prior to this ban, he renamed his account to Mavaxis Starburner).
Starting in late 2018, Hawk, an amateur debater and political sciences student, became most well-known among both older and newer members of SBC alike for reviving politics discussions on the site, with his promotions of libertarian leftist ideas being cited by several SBC members as a strong influence on their own views. Along with this, he's engaged in such antics as livestreaming plays of Portal 2 co-op with frenemy The DS Guy, and more notably, becoming a "late-bloomer brony" in August 2020 after taking a friend's suggestion to watch MLP: FiM. Some things, you really just can't predict.
On November 11, 2022, Hawk became the first formerly-banned member in SBC history to be made a Cashier, succeeding Fred Rechid. Prior to this, he had been named an admin of this wiki in December 2021. He continues to regularly appear on the SBC Discord and forums, organizing community efforts such as the recurring Community Mixtape. Outside of SBC, Hawk is also known as a key member of the YSFlight Simulator community, where he leads two other groups and a handful of related Discord servers.
