"Idealists are an endangered species around here"
—Donovan in Dead or Alive: Dimensions


Victor Donovan is the former leader of the DOATEC anti-Douglas faction and the former head of the Development Department, a state of the art military fortress where Project Alpha and Project Omega were developed. He is the main antagonist of the series.

His first physical appearance was in Dead or Alive Dimensions in order to explain his motives and intents throughout the series.

HistoryEdit

Dead or AliveEdit

In the first Dead or Alive, Donovan employed the Russian assassin Bayman to kill DOATEC's chairman, Fame Douglas. This attempt is thought to have been successful, as Douglas died shortly after the event. The nature of Donovan's rebellion is thought to be controversy over experiments to be carried out to create an ultimate Dead or Alive fighter. This means that Donovan is responsible for Projects Epsilon, Alpha, and Omega. At some point after Raidou's demise at Kasumi's hands in the first tournament, Donovan retrieved Raidou's corpse and worked for two years in order to bring him back to life.

Dead or Alive 2Edit

After the first tournament, Donovan had his subordinates capture Kasumi, and sent her body to DOATEC Germany, as he deemed her useful for his ambition of creating an ultimate fighter — a cloning project. At some point after his first clone is created, the leader of the Mugen Tenshin clan's Hajinmon sect, Genra, goes to Donovan for an alliance, intending to rule both the Mugen Tenshin and DOATEC respectively. Their first step is sending Kasumi α to kidnap a comatose Hayate, to use him for Donovan's Epsilon project.

Despite losing both Kasumi and Hayate thanks to Hayabusa, Donovan still has Kasumi's samples and proceeds with his cloning plans. He sends Alpha to guard Genra.

Dead or Alive 3Edit

In Dead or Alive 3 Donovan captures Helena, Fame Douglas' daughter, since she stands to inherit her father's position as chairman of DOATEC. He challenges Helena to win the Dead or Alive 3 tournament in order to gain her freedom and learn the truth behind the company. He also employs the assassin Christie to keep an eye on her.

Meanwhile, Bayman seeks revenge after Donovan plotted his assassination to tie up any loose ends.

Dead or Alive 4Edit

In Helena's ending of Dead or Alive 4, Ryu Hayabusa is shown destroying an airship with a man who was believed to be Donovan. For a time, there was some speculation that Donovan also appeared on the front cover of the Dead or Alive 4 video game case, but this theory was debunked when players realized it was Zack wearing the same costume from Helena's ending. After the end credits of Dead or Alive: Dimensions, Donovan is seen putting on Genra's mask, revealing that Donovan did in fact survive the final battle at the Tritower complex.

Dead or Alive 5Edit

After the destruction of DOATEC, Donovan establishes an organization called MIST to continue with the Alpha Project. At some point, he successfully revives Raidou as a cyborg. During Dead or Alive 5, he is already ready to start Phase 4 of his Alpha plan: the creation of soldiers with the fighting capabilities of the four ninja (Kasumi, Hayate, Ayane and Hayabusa) and distributing them to countries with powerful militaries around the world. Donovan has already created several Alpha clones, each with their own unique number. When the ninja attack the MIST laboratory hidden within the oil rig, Donovan has his son, Rig, capture Hayate and reactivate Project Epsilon. But that apparently fails when Kasumi rescues Hayate and Lisa releases him. The ninja then destroy the lab along with all of the Alpha clones that were inside.

However, it seems that Donovan is not worried about the loss of the lab, as Rig already has the samples they needed. They are ready to proceed with Phase 4.

CharacterEdit

AppearanceEdit

Donovan wears a white pinstripe suit and has blonde hair that seems to be slicked completely back. His facial features are entirely unknown as he is seen wearing a mask in all of his appearances and that his face has yet to be revealed to the player.

PersonalityEdit

Because Donovan does not appear in the story that often, not much is known about his personality. There are two things about him that can be said for certain: he is ruthless, stopping at nothing to get what he wants, and he is obsessed with creating the "ultimate fighter." He commits immoral human experiments in order to create this "ultimate fighter."

EtymologyEdit

Of Latin origin, his first name Victor means "one who conquers," thus describing his evil, ambitious nature. His surname Donovan is both of English and Gaelic for "dark chieftain." This surname describes him as the "dark master" behind the entire events that occurred before the Dead or Alive Tournament and assassination of Fame Douglas.

RelationshipsEdit

BaymanEdit

Donovan had hired Bayman to assassinate Fame Douglas for him. After returning successfully from his mission, Donovan betrays him by sending other assassins to kill him. Donovan did this because he did not want to leave any proof that he had any part in Fame Douglas' death. As a result, Bayman hates Donovan and would love nothing more than to kill him.

ChristieEdit

The nature of Donovan's relationship with Christie is not entirely known. It can be assumed that he hired her because of her skill as an assassin. He also seems to trust her a great deal, as she often acts as his right hand. At some point, Christie had been planning to betray him. It is unknown if Donovan knew about this or not.

LisaEdit

It is unknown what relationship Lisa shares with Donovan, but Lisa reveals animosity during the events of Dead or Alive 4 about Hayate's capture and Project Epsilon when Helena confronted her in the burning of the tri-towers. She has worked for Donovan in the past, but was possibly betrayed by him somehow.

HelenaEdit

Because Helena is the legitimate heir to DOATEC, Donovan sees her as a threat to his power. He sends Christie to pose as a servant and befriend Helena in order to keep an eye on her. Eventually, he decides to have Christie kill her. Though she tries to kill Helena in both the third and fourth tournaments, Christie failed due to Bayman's interference.

Kasumi αEdit

Kasumi α is a clone of Kasumi and Donovan's "ultimate fighter." Because she was created by Donovan, she is completely loyal to him. When she found out that Christie intended to betray him, she treated her with suspicion and was determined to protect him.

RigEdit

Donovan's possible son. Together, they apparently plotted out everything that happened in Dead or Alive 5.

GenraEdit

The Mugen Tenshin Hajinmon sect's leader, Genra, secretly conspired with Victor Donovan to takeover the Mugen Tenshin and DOATEC respectively.

RaidouEdit

After Raidou's demise at Kasumi's hands in the first tournament, Donovan found Raidou's body and worked for two years in order to bring him back to life. Donovan succeeded in doing so by transforming Raidou into a powerful ninja cyborg, now Raidou is a secret agent working for Donovan as debt for resurrecting him.

DOA Movie Donovan

Eric Roberts as Donovan in DOA: Dead or Alive

DOA: Dead or AliveEdit

He was portrayed by Eric Roberts in the 2006 movie adaption. In the film, Donovan uses a machine to acquire the fighting skills of the best fighters in the tournament (becoming similar to Raidou in the video games, since he uses the skills of several fighters). Nevertheless, he ends up killed in the explosion of DOA Island in the 2006 movie after being acupunctured in the back of his neck by Kasumi.
