Donovan is a warrior and member of the Vulfsatz. He has taught Hannibal Losstarot hand-to-hand combat and oversees his physical training, including horseback riding and fencing. He is currently chasing the Fellowship of Maar Sul with other Vulfsatz members.
Donovan served as a mercenary and worked for the highest bidder. The civil war in Libaterra between the Locken Loyalists and the Rebels was quite profitable, and he often turned on his employers if others paid him more. As the years passed, he grew weary of combat but hardly had time to catch his breath because he had to face the threat of Yamato, Faerfolc and later Alent as the Great War was in its final stages.
It was then that he met Orestes who hired him to come with him to Trinity Gask where a new Rebel leader, Glaurung Losstarot, had emerged. Donovan and Glaurung had a private talk during which Donovan came to realize Glaurung's vision. He saw her as a respectable leader who might finally put an end to senseless fighting, and he swore to follow her no matter what happened. Donovan thus became a member of the Vulfsatz and served alongside them on behalf of the Losstarot line.

His training is brutal, and he expects his students, such as Hannibal, to endure pain. In his view survival is the most important skill and a warrior should strive to stay alive by any means necessary. He thinks honourable combat is a relic of the past.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Although Donovan does not know magic, he more than compensates for it with his strength and overall endurance. He is surprisingly agile for his size, and he is equally skilled with the use of weapons and his bare fists. He knows how to use every inch of his body to his advantage, which makes him a deadly opponent.
