Some time prior to the gremlin invasion of the building, he was present in the control room when Forster came to check up on them and used one of the intercom systems to fire an employee who was taking an unauthorized smoke break and had been spotted by a camera.
Later, when Billy Peltzer came inside the room to warn Forster and the technicians about the newly hatched gremlins that were at large in the building, he and his co-workers started to make fun of Billy and his words, instead of believing him, about the mogwai and their transformations into gremlins. Mohawk then suddenly broke through a computer console and attacked Forster's Technician 1. The fourth technician was shocked and backed off along with Forster's Technician 3 and after Mohawk knocked the technician he attacked out, the two of them ran to his aid.
Thanks to Billy using a flashlight, the gremlin then got chased off, leaving the technicians to care for their wounded. A bit later when the sprinklers went off in Studio D, where the gremlins George, Lenny and Daffy had fled amok and were now multiplying in, he noticed it on his computer console and told Forster, but the camera then went out.
