BARD PAPER: DANI0805
Demosthenes Maximilian Donohue
Private Investigator in Trantown/Aubaine
A retired police captain in teh Trantown city police, Donohue is now a private investigator.
Donohue does not like his given names, and usually uses "D.M.
Donohue" on most of his identification documents. If pressed for
the meaning of "D. M.", he will reply with a standard line: "I
don't like what it means, and I don't use what it means. I'd
rather be called 'Flatfoot' than by my right name." He first
used the line when he decided to go into law enforcement;
unfortunately (or maybe not), the rest of his class in police training
picked up on it. It has become comfortable as a nickname, and if
he is brought into an adventure where a taccode or similar call
is needed, he will voluntarily use "Flatfoot".
Referees should equip him (remembering to deduct from his funds,
above) as befits an ex-cop. Be sure to include a slug pistol of
some sort, preferably one similar to what the Trantown PD uses as
its standard firearm (probably 9mm semi-auto). Trantown PD rules
allow him to wear a Trantown PD uniform on ceremonial occasions,
without the police shield or unit identifiers.

Brown hair and brown eyes. DM is 1.7m in height and weights 92kg.
Diamond Queen: Lustful Donohue sees himself as God's gift
to women, or, perhaps more accurately, as a sex god
himself. He does not believe that any woman can resist his
charm, since "I practically ooze sex appeal". Obviously,
any woman that doesn't immediately want to go to bed with
him is a "frigid b*tch". People who know him suggest that
by his standards, easily half the population of Trantown
(the female half) qualifies as "frigid".
Club 8: Ambitious. Donohue wants to become the
greatest private investigator ever seen on Aubaine.
Unfortunately, his skills are clearly weak in the areas
where a detective needs strength. Such is the fortune of
staff and administrative assignments. He has made an
effort to acquire some of the skills he needs, but seems to
lack the willpower needed to stay the course.

Chief of Starport Security Forces. As a
Lieutenant, Donohue was appointed the Detail
Commander of the Starport Security Supplement.
as such, he was required to coordinate SSS activities
with those of the regular starport security forces.
Donohue's detail was responsible for the
apprehension of an important link in a major
Chief of Staff to the Coalition General Secretary.
Captain Donohue was in charge of arranging security
for the General Secretary for a public appearance
on Reformation Day. Their relationship is one of
"personal friends" because of an affinity of
personality, rather than because of any specific
Chief of Patrol, Trantown PD. Donohue's mentor
during his career on the force. Used his pull to
get Donohue assigned to certain choice details,
such as the Starport Security Supplement.
Donohue has done favors for him in the past, and
will do so in the future.
Commanding Officer, Trantown PD Public Morals Unit
("Vice Squad"). Donohue is owed favors by this
individual, due to several good tips provided to
Donohue by certain underworld figures in Trantown.
