Donovan was abandoned by his mother and father when he was a baby after a vampire attack that turned him. Both his parents were hunters and a rogue vampire thought he would stick it to them by turning their only child into something they despised. After being abandoned and left alone as a baby someone found him and brought him to an orphanage. The head of the orphanage seen the teeth marks in his neck and knew he would need special care. They fed him cattle blood to sustain him until he was old enough to fend for himself and then they made him leave the orphanage. He was 18 years old with nowhere to go and no one to care for him. Donovan learned to take care of himself for centuries until he met a man who took him in and gave him a place to live and a job. After the man who had taken him in died Donovan traveled from place to place and got into the MMA scene for a while. Fighting had become a lifestyle for the man, it paid good so therefore it put food in his stomach and cheap motel rooms to sleep in when he needed to.
He grew a hatred for people but knows that there are some good out there. The man is distant and always seems angry simply because he has a guard up at all times, not knowing who and who not to trust he simply doesn't trust anyone until they prove themselves to him. Donovan had heard about a coven for not only vampires but werecreatures as well in Alaska. Figuring he had already been damn near everywhere in the US he might as well check the place out and possibly settle down for a while.
Donovan spent a while in Alaska. When the man first got there he had intended to keep to himself and for the most part he did other then having to interact with people due to his job. That all changed when he met Summer Pierce
. Donovan did his best to drive the woman away but she was persistent and any insult or nasty comment he would make the woman would throw right in his face proving she wasn't going to take his shit. After a while Donovan became attracted to the woman and eventually he couldn't get her off his mind, she had been the only person in a long time that he had actually had an interest in or wanted to be close to. The day Summer left Alaska Donovan was devastated even though he didn't show it. He remained in Alaska for a few more months, simply working and pushing everyone away like he normally did. The man had tried various things to try and get over Summer and forget her so that he could fully move on with his life but every attempt to block her out of his memory failed.
Eventually Donovan found himself leaving Alaska and going out to look for Summer. He searched the internet and asked around to figure out any clues as to where the woman went. Donovan knew she was with his former boss Patience Nightcurse
but he had no clue where they both were and it was starting to aggravate the man. He started to become angry with himself for letting someone in again when he knew how the world worked, how people worked. Donovan figured he should have seen it coming and kept his distance but with a woman like Summer that was difficult to do.
His search for Summer was put on hold when he had gotten some information from an old vampire in a pub that he had seen a man who looked exactly like him who lived in a place called Rogue. After receiving the man's name Donovan did some research and found out that the man was his brother. Donovan didn't know whether he should hate or love the man but he knew he had to find him and try to get some answers about his parents who had left him on someone's doorstep. That's if this man he found out about wasn't abandoned by the pricks himself.
