I don't intend to kill you, just make you bleed enough so you quiet down.

—Donovan

Donovan (ドノバン Donoban?) is a minor antagonist who appears in Battle Tendency. Donovan is an army special force member sent to apprehend Joseph Joestar in the Mexican desert.

Appearance

Donovan is a mature athletic man whose dark hair is slicked back. His skin is of a different color between the eyes and the hair line.

Donovan wears a sleeveless officer outfit.

Personality

Donovan is a sadistic and deadly Nazi soldier. He initially presents himself as a confident fighter and seems to specialize in torture, claiming that he will find a way to make Joseph pass out from blood loss without killing him, and says that he would never talk, even when under torture. This proves to be a facade, as Joseph quickly makes him talk about the Nazi base just minutes after torturing him.

Synopsis

Battle Tendency

While Joseph travels through the desert in his search for information about Speedwagon, he suddenly spots a large cape floating down toward him. Suspecting it to be related to his sense of being followed, he sends it flying and reveals a man with a knife, who immediately attacks. After a short back-and-forth, the man reveals himself to be a special forces Nazi officer sent to trail Joseph in order to acquire information on Straizo. In their fight, he seems to have the upper hand at first, but Joseph soon turns the tables by using the Ripple on a cactus to launch its needles at Donovan. Joseph demands information, but Donovan refuses. Joseph sticks a magnetic compass in Donovan's eye, and he quickly tells Joseph that Speedwagon is alive. Donovan tries to make a run for it as Joseph gets ready to leave on his motorbike. Joseph easily catches him and ties him to a cactus with a note reading "Hello Adolph!"

Abilities

Donovan excels at trailing people due to his ability to move lightly enough to avoid leaving footprints in sand. He is able to sneak up on wild bats, balance atop a cactus using the flat edge of a knife, and possesses extraordinary athletic ability. His knife appears to be wrapped in a special material which can unwind and be used much like a whip.
