» Donovan, or Donnie as his friends call him, has always been a survivor. As a child he survived his abusive father, a teen he survived living on the streets and as a young man he survived his criminal lifestyle. None of which were easy feats. At the age of twelve Donnie first began to run away from home but was always picked up and brought back home to his parents. Both his parents worked, his mother as a cashier at a local grocery store while his father was a mechanic both the family rarely had any money as Allister drank it all.
His sister Angela left home at sixteen when Donnie was thirteen, claiming their father was sexually abusing her. Whether this was true or not, Donnie doesn't know but he believed it. Allister had no trouble beating the crap out of Donnie when he was drunk so it was possible in Donnie's mind. Three years later Donnie himself was out of the house after getting picked up by the police for stealing. He finished school in a correctional facility and at eighteen was on his own. Immediately he was living on the street and quickly turned to crime to make a living. It was hard at first but soon Donnie met the right people and was helping them, getting enough money to get himself off the street.
At twenty two Donnie moved to London and started working with Seamus Barrie, an old Irish gangster and a few of his cronies. Two years later, Donnie was double crossed and left beaten & robbed in an alley by those men. After which he swore never to trust an Irishman again and that it was a good to get out of London. When he was twenty five Donnie was picked up by the police again and spent six months behind bars for possession. Once he was out, Donnie headed back to London in search of honest work. Something to cover his tracks while he worked on his next heist. Which didn't pan out as the cops were tipped off and Donnie got caught in a shoot out. After getting hit square in the chest, Donnie thought for sure he was a gonner but he managed to get his ass away from the cops. He was holding up in his apartment when Donnie realized he was healing far faster than he should have been. Within hours the wound was gone and Donnie was back in tip top shape.
So Donnie began experimenting. Small experiments at first, just knife wounds which would heal in minutes. Gun wounds took hours Donnie discover and broken bones a day, which was when he decided to stop experimenting. That's when Donnie took an interest in fighting. Since he knew his wounds would heal, Donnie began entering illegal street fights and found he had a talent. If anything, he could keep going while the other fighters got hurt.» Sample «
