The new Dr. Fate is Hector Hall, the son of Carter Hall (Hawkman I) and Shiera Saunders Hall. While a college student at UCLA, Hector fell in love with fellow “JSA brat Hippolyta Trevor, Fury.
Hector and Lyta became engaged while still in college. Shortly after the disappearance of the JSA Lyta discovered that she was pregnant. Before their wedding or the birth of their child Hector was murdered by the latest reincarnation of Hath-Set, his parents’ eternal enemy, who resurrected the Silver Scarab as an inhuman entity.
After his death Hector’s soul was waylaid by Brute and Globe, renegade former servants of Morpheus, who made him the new Sandman. While in the Dreaming, Hector contacted Lyta Trevor and renewed their romance. Hector returned to the waking world long enough to marry Lyta, who, still pregnant, joined him in the Dreaming. When Morpheus returned to reclaim his kingdom he sent Hector, who was really still a ghost, on to the afterlife and returned Lyta to the waking world. Lyta subsequently gave birth to their child, a boy named Daniel, who later became the new incarnation of Dream, Sandman V, replacing Morpheus.
After a time in a spiritual limbo Hector was reborn in a new body, magically aged to adulthood, and entrusted with the artifacts of Nabu, becoming the new Dr. Fate. In the wake of Hector’s death and rebirth, the status of his marriage to Lyta Trevor is unclear. It is also unknown if Hector is aware that his son is now Dream. Hector’s other living relatives are his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Joan Dale Trevor and Admiral Derek Trevor, his mother’s cousin Cyril “Speed” Saunders, and his cousin, Kendra Saunders.
As Dr. Fate, Hector Hall has all the powers at his disposal that Nabu gives him. He is presently new to the mystical arts, and has a lot to learn, but his first showdown with Mordru was a good indication Hector is no slouch.
Kent Nelson and his wife Inza reside in the universe that exists inside the Amulet of Anubus. Kent has assumed a position of mystical advisor to Hector’s Dr. Fate.
