Skay Donovan is a young (and naive) Scion played by Drew.


Skay was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he grew up in a plantation house that had been in his mother's family for many years. His father, Nathanial Donovan, a member of the Clave, was largely absent for most of his life.

This made it all the more difficult for him when his mother died of cancer when Skay was 20, during his second year of college. Knowing fully well that his father had the skill to prevent his mother's death with Cipher magic, but bound by Scion law to do nothing, Skay left home, using a part of his substantial his inheritance to travel to New York City and establish a new life for himself there.

Skay has worked consistently in the city, doing everything from waiting tables to retail jobs, barely using any money of his inheritance, which has been sitting in a bank account since his arrival in Manhattan. An avid (if secretive) writer, Skay considers his humble lifestyle a way to gather experiences to enhance his writing.

For the better part of the last few years, Skay has worked at Nightbird's Journey.


Skay is and always has been an irrepressible social butterfly, with a vast collection of friends. Open, friendly, and incredibly optimistic, Skay rarely sees the glass as anything but almost full of sunshine and rainbows.

A little naive, he can't help but believe the best about the people he encounters in day to day life. He inherited this optimistic outlook on life from his mother.

Most of all Skay loves having fun. He's a regular club and party goer, but is also capable of enjoying a less boisterous evening with friends.

Skay speaks with a soft Louisiana accent, which gets noticeably stronger when he's inebriated, recollecting the past, or speaking with a fellow Louisiana native.


Skay is an intermediate level Cipher mage, but has specialized in combat and offensive magic. While a lot of his skills involve pyromancy, it isn't necessarily his main focus.


Skay works at Nightbird's Journey with his friends Antoine Lebeaux. LaDonna LeBeaux (to whom he is very attracted to, in spite of knowing what she truly is), and Constance Airoldi. He is very close to his best friend of several years, Michelle Hawker.

Recently, his childhood friend Mary Francis "Frankie" Kendall has arrived in Manhattan, and the two have moved into a new apartment more suitable for two people.
