Hailing from Barclay, Donavan was the second son of a noble who came to Pendor to seek a name for himself.
Known for his cruel punishments to soldiers who disobey commands, a Ravenstern lord drummed him out of his employ for his methods. Despite this, his methods are effective, and can make a proper soldier out of a peasant relatively quickly. Donavan clashes with Sigismund for his lack of respect towards the latter, and makes it clear that he would enjoy having him whipped. He is also disliked by Leslie for both his cruelty and his frequent threats to flog her. However, he gets along well with Frederick, because they agree that discipline is a vital part of any effective army.
Should you choose to make him a vassal, he will field a full assortment of Barclay troops.
