Character Details
Portrayed by Max Thieriot
Name: Donovan Tobias Gallagher
Aliases: Donny, Gally
Birthday: May 05, 1922
Position: Gryffindor
Lineage: Muggle-born


Donovan is tall for, both for his age and in general, standing a little over six foot with an athletic build. His hair color is halfway between blonde and brunette with the suntouched streaks of someone who spends a lot of time outdoors and is styled in such a way as to be called windswept. A tall forehead and strong jaw give him a slightly aristocratic look that compliments his confident carriage. His eyes are a glacier water blue and have a half closed look to them that makes him look slightly sleepy all the time.

At the moment Donovan is wearing a Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry uniform. Rather notable by the scarlet and gold colouring he must have sorted into House Gryffindor. A grey vest edged in gold and scarlet covers a crisp white Oxford shirt, buttoned from the belt-line to the collar and accented with a scarlet tie with narrow gold stripes. The shirt is tucked neatly into matching grey trousers that fall to the tops of black shoes. Over all of this flows a voluminous black robe lined in soft Gryffindor Scarlet fabric, unadorned except for a scarlet maned golden lion standing rampant over a scarlet background with gold fret sewn over the heart.


Donovan was born to Aiobhe and Willam Gallagher as their first son… and sadly their only child. Although the pair got pregnant multiple times all of his potential siblings were stillborn. The repeated stress on Aoibhe's mind caused her already delicate mind to unwind when Donovan was 10, she was taken to a mental institution. Willam and Donovan left the family house in Cardiff, Wales and moved to London so that they could visit her regularly.

With the absence of his Mother, his father dove into his work as a cobbler, all but ignoring his son. Only the arrival of his letter to Hogwarts did anything to keep Donovan from going completely bad on the streets of the capitol. However, when he got to Hogwarts and was sorted into Gryffindor his outlook changed. Viewing this as a chance to change his world he vowed to become more than his poor parents were capable of.

He does… okay in school, but his real focus is on Quidditch, where he excels. He views the pitch has his chance to escape the situation his past. And takes the game very seriously, he is an excellent Chaser and spends most of his free time practicing and hopes to play for the Caerphilly Catapults when he graduates from Hogwarts. So that he can go back and live in Wales after school.

RP Hooks

  • Muggle-Born - You know the schtick, either hate 'em or love 'em. Donovan is one.
  • Quidditch - Donny lives for Quidditch.
  • Touch - For a British person, Donny touches other people a lot. He'll put his arm around you or nudge you, or maybe your girl. He doesn't mean anything by it, but that doesn't mean you know that.
