|Chronological and political information|
A Force-sensitive Twi'lek, Hawk Ryo was born into a wealthy family on the planet Shikaakwa. The brother of Baron Volnos Ryo, Hawk Ryo was trained in the ways of the Force by the Je'daii Order on the planet Tython, one of nine planets in the Tython system which made up the Settled Worlds. As a Journeyer, Ryo had a romantic relationship with fellow Journeyer Rori Fenn; the pair ended the relationship after they ascended to the rank of Je'daii Ranger. During his life as a Ranger, Ryo introduced his brother to his future wife, Je'daii Master Kora.
In 25,793 BBY, the Xesh, a Force Hound of the Infinite Empire crashed the Rakatan ship called the Devourer near the Rift on Tython. At the time, Ryo was stationed at the Furies Gate space station at the edge of the system and saw the ship pass by. The surge of deaths associated with the crash alerted all Je'daii to the foreign presence on the world, as well as stirring a Force storm that would rage across the entire planet. Ryo immediately departed for Tython and met with Ranger Fenn and Temple Master Quan-Jang at the Rift to search of survivors. Despite being attacked briefly by a pair of saarl, the Je'daii arrived safely at the site where they were able to transmit a vid-feed back to Temple Master Kora Ryo at the Temple of Knowledge, Kaleth.
Discovering the broken hilts of three Je'daii Journeyers' swords, Ryo and Fenn paired up on the back of a bipedal mount and delved deep into the Rift in search of their wayward Je'daii while Master Quan-Jang surveyed the area on the back of a mutated rancor-dragon named Butch.
