Name: Liam Donovan
Relationship: Uncle to Jax and Gia Donovan
Orientation: I’ll leave this up to the author
Career: 2nd heir to the Donovan Fortune (Jax is 1st heir being the son of the 1st born son), one of the board members to the Donovan Sports Supply company, the face of the company, and now owner of the Donovan Sports Store.
Face claim (optional): Jason O’Mara
Personality: Liam is a pretty laid back guy who tends to go with whatever is presented to him. He is incredibly loyal to his family. Liam will bend over backwards to make sure his family is safe. Although he is kind, he is also a businessman and can be quite clever and charming when he needs to be. ((I am open to ideas for further development of his personality).
Background: Bear with me as there is a lot of backstory and it may be a lot of information to take in.
Liam is the younger brother of Kian (pronounced Key-in) Donovan and though one would think that there would be sibling rivalry, the truth was that the boys were inseparable. Their parents were from a more Traditional Pureblood Societal family where making connections and keeping up appearances matter. Kian, being the heir, became the face of the family and as such would travel the world making partners with other sports companies to allow their family’s business to grow beyond Europe. One of his journeys landed him in Greece where he was meeting the Raptis family, a famous Pureblood family known for their fashion forward clothing and beautiful embroidery work. There, he met and fell in love with their model daughter, Dahlia. They married six months later.
Shortly after they married, Dahlia became pregnant with their first born, Jax and just two months after his birth, she found herself pregnant with their second child, their daughter Gia. (An Irishman having Irish twins!). Life for them was good and Liam was very much a part of his brother’s life with his family.
Then tragedy struck.
When Jax turned five years old, Kian took him off camping for the first time. It was there that they had an encounter with a werewolf. Kian did all he could to protect Jax, but it costed him his life and Jax was bit in the process of trying to escape.
Scared and now a widow, Dahlia took her children and fled. Jax and Gia were made to believe that her going into hiding was to protect Jax from the public, but this was not true. The werewolf that killed Kian and nearly Jax, was actually a hired hit man from a magical Russian Mob family, the Nikoleavs’. He was hired to kill both father and son due to a disagreement they had with Kian’s uncle Fergus who had double crossed them in a deal. The Donovans were unaware of Fergus’s dealings with the Russian family and were dismayed by the attack. Dahlia had received a threatening letter shortly after her husband’s funeral regarding the life of her son and without sending word to anyone, fled.
Liam spent years looking for his niece and nephew while grieving the loss of his brother and trying to maintain his new position in the family. Dahlia traveled through Greece, never staying long in any city, just earning enough as a waitress in small eateries that would allow her and her children food and savings to move onto the next place. When Jax was ten and soon to be eleven, Dahlia left Greece and settled into Seattle, WA which allowed them to get letters into Ilvermorny.
After hiring private investigators to track Dahlia and the children, they were able to locate them once she enrolled them into Ilvermorny. Liam, with the Head of the Family’s permission, took up residence in the same neighborhood under a disguise. When Jax turned twelve, he turned to boxing as a way to build strength and get rid of excess energy which allowed Liam a way in to develop a relationship with the family.
He became an Irish Boxer trainer in a local boxing club and took on Jax as a trainee. Over the years, he was able to develop a trusting relationship with his nephew and keep watch on his sister in law and niece. This meant that when the Russian family found them during the summer before Jax and Gia’s sixth year, Liam was able to bring Dahlia back to the Donovans to find a way to save them.

The Newspaper Headlines
Now that everything's out in the open, the Donovans have lost some business associates for openly accepting a werewolf into their ranks which has cost them some sales. However, they also gained support from those who are sympathetic towards werewolves and more liberal families. They are slowly expanding the family business and are now taking shop in Greylock. Jax is not ready to take on the family business as a whole so Liam has agreed to buy the local sports shop and run the business while training Jax and getting him comfortable in the position of sale, finance, business, and customer service once he graduates from llvermorny.
