Physical Description

The Rayleigh resembles less of a man so much as a walking suit of archaic armor, with a dash of sci-fi gadgetry of course. Donovan's body is painted with a satin black finish with a satin white triangular section around his neck to loosely resemble a buisness suit. Its large, heavy armor may at first appear cumbersome, but allows him a large degree of movement. It features two modes, its non-combat mode with visor open and shoulder armor rotating back. In full battle mode its neck guard raises, its visor shuts and the shoulder armor rotates to cover its arms. 

Keeping to the traditional Security architecture, the head includes the iconic mono-eye arrangement of previous models, however the eye is now able to be shielded behind a pair of heavy armored shutters that cut down exposure to a small slit. Alongside the central eye on raised “cheekbones” are arranged the axillary sensors. 

The very top of the head of the Rayleigh is flat, but when the top shutter is open it takes up that area. Around the rim of the sides and back of the head is a much more subdued rim than what the Dennis was equipped with, the armored cheeks merge into this rim along the sides of the head. The bottom shutter slides down to create a chin when undeployed. 

The neck is supported by shrouded servos along the classic black electro-muscle, surrounded by a thick collar which can be raised or lowered depending on alert status. 

On the inside of the collar is a EM-J5-E3605 - Light bar / Holoprojector that works along with the EM-J5-M3600 - Emoticon pack. Occasionally an emoticon will appear on his helmet.


Two large armored shoulder plates dominate the top half of the torso with a pair of plain pauldrons protecting the armpit area, these pads are plain and clearly thickly armored. They immediately look good for shoulder bashing things, and knocking them down. 

The center torso has a flexible armored breast plate designed to shift and move with the movement of the arms, bending and deforming as required, it appears as two main plates, with a central plate, connections between the three are behind what would be the pectoral area. 

The lower half of the torso has smaller interlocking plates which are flexible for torso twisting and bending. 


The upper arms are mostly covered by the large shoulder plates, but for the most exposed areas, such as near the elbow and the bicep, there's a small curved plate of armor embedded against the electro-muscle. The arm has a large armored gauntlet with retractable fist plates for punching hard things while keeping the more fragile fingers and palm safe. 


Thick armored thighs with external carriage for sidearms or other items in its combat load also carry hips closely carried over from the Rayleigh's brother, Dennis. The knee is covered in a simple raised plate, while the greaves are thick, solid and taper into a small square, from which a pair of unconventional feet emerge. 

The feet are made of four prongs emerge at corners, long dark toes which provide ample leverage from which to run, dodge, or dive. A central, well suspensioned pad central of the four toes is the closest the Rayleigh has to a conventional foot made to harsh landings, slippery floors, and soft ground. In the event of poor ground the “toe” can flatten and fold down four additional pads, giving the Rayleigh a wider, more stable “footprint”. 


Donovan is a stalwart, motivated personage. He carries his masters flag and lives to honor it, putting it before anything else. It is his entire purpose in life, to build Frontier Service Corporation, protect it, and maintain it. His actions are guided by a plan and his devotion to the cause is unwavering. In peace he is calm, patient, and speaks like an educated man. Whenever his cause is threatened a plan is immediately created to correct the problem, and he is more than willing to kill to ensure that his master's corporation and the USO are safe from harm. His vigilance is unending, yet he is sometimes found wandering and “thinking”. There are many things running through his artificial mind at any given time and his wandering thoughts are often times when his RAM is full and he needs more time to process the data.

He possesses an odd quirk in the form of capes and ties, but never at the same time. He'll often have something draped over part of his body or around his neck for no other reason than “because I can”. This may be a side effect of modifying his operating system but it has yet to become an issue.


Donovan was built by Candon Suites in YE 39 for the purpose of serving as his representative to the Independent and building Frontier Service Corporation. To ensure that his representative would be fully equipped to handle the assignment of building Frontier Service Corporation, Candon had personal involvement in Donovan's “aftermarket reprogramming” by imparting an illegally made copy of his own ST data modified to run in the background of Donovan's mind for whenever his input was needed while he was unavailable. This has given Donovan a very clear vision of what FSCorp should become, how his creator wants it built, and a 99% accurate answer in “what would Candon do” situations.

Social Connections

Candon Suites: Primary loyalty

Uso: Secondary loyalty.

Weapons he is trained in include pistols of all types, knives, grenades (and other forms of explosive weaponry) and rifles of all kinds. Donovan is a combat rated android built with immense physical strength and great endurance. He is a capable combatant in most conventional forms of warfare and fights much like a power armored soldier.


Donovan is a EM-J6-1 "Rayleigh" equipped with the commander upgrade. He can understand and give out tactical commands and work with his troop to follow those commands efficiently. He knows the importance of teamwork on the battlefield, has been programmed in discipline and morale, and is able to recognize the command structure even while under extreme pressure (combat, etc).

Donovan knows how to diagnose and treat conditions, apply first aid and emergency care (CPR, etc), and perform field surgery/general surgery if given the proper tools/facilities. Donovan knows how to work in and use hospital equipment and is also equipped with medical equipment.


Donovan is programmed in basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other people through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. He is fluent in Trade (language) and Yamataigo (邪馬台語). He can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc.

Maintenance and Repair

Donovan is able to fix most problems with mechanical components and systems. While not necessarily well-versed on every part ever made he can understand the theory behind each and is able to keep things operating within normal parameters.

Technology Operation

Donovan is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, 'Destiny' AI System, or Advanced Command/Combat Executive AI. This is only possible by way of illegally obtained software added to Donovan's android brain.


Donovan is a good speaker and applies a liberal amount of psychology to his words to speak strategically. He knows how to host functions of various types, and is aware of the concept of etiquette, should he ever choose to use it. He can negotiate business dealings and contracts with confidence as he can see a the numbers and detect bad deal quickly. Donovan is aware that his body inspires a measure of intimidation in organic creatures and will sometimes use this element to his advantage should someone become stubborn or defiant.
