Donald Hall was the second son of renowned Judge, Irwin Hall, and had an older brother named Hank. Hank and Don discovered a plot in which a criminal named Dargo planned to murder their father, to remove any chance of serving time in prison. They tracked Dargo to his hideout but got locked in a room, where the boys started arguing until Don shouted "I wish I had the power to get us out of here right now and go save dad!". At that moment a flash of light appeared and the voices of Peace and War said that if they wish for power, all they need to say were the magic words to transform themselves into the Avatars of War and Peace. Don became Dove; an Avatar of Peace, and Hank became Hawk; an Avatar of War.
Time as Dove
Don began a crime fighting career with his brother, and began dating a girl named Dawn Granger. One day when visiting an art gallery with Dawn it came under attack by terrorists. Don was shot down by the terrorists so Peace allowed Dawn access to the power and influence that peace provides. She received the power of peace and defeated the attackers becoming a new Dove.
Don and Hank later went on to be founding members of the Original Teen Titans. During their time with the Teen Titans, Don was killed by a villain named Mister Twister and Dawn took over as the Dove.
