Hector Hall is a superhero in the DC Universe who went by several identities, including the Silver Scarab, Sandman and Doctor Fate.


The son of the original Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Hector Hall decided to follow in his parents footsteps as a crimefighter and became the Silver Scarab (and later the Sandman and Dr. Fate).


Hector Hall was born to his mother Carter Hall and his mother Shiera Hall in Cairo, Egypt.  Carter and Shiera were the superhero duo known as Hawkman and Hawkgirl and were the reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian pharoah and his wife.  It seemed their constant reincarnation was due to a curse placed on the pharoah and his wife by the evil Hath-Set, an evil priest who lived in their kingdom.  What was unknown to them was that the curse, prophesized by the Egyptian Death God Seketh, extended to any children they might have and that if two symbols, the Silver Scarab and the Eye of Ra, met, it would be an omen for the world's end.
