Meanwhile, The Black Hawk appears, a masked man that menaces the rich people, stealing their excessive belongings and giving it back to the people. Surprisingly, the Black Hawks turns out to be Jean-Pierre de Saint Cove, a nobleman in a relevant social position who uses his status to know the weaknesses of the nobility and then be able to carry out his own reckoning. Jean-Pierre, as the Black Hawk, lives in a house in the middle of the forest, leading a life in nature, following the principles of Rousseau or Voltaire.
