✘ Cooper Donahue (Garrett Hedlund) | Human/Hunter | 20 | Open ✘
This is getting kinkier and creepier by the moment.
Cooper’s childhood memories were anything but typical, most of them consisting of his parents teaching him, Cormac and Chase anything and everything they had to know in order to be successful hunters. Where other kids his age hid from monsters, Cooper and his family were off hunting them down. Cooper was a skilled fighter from and early age but preferred the investigating aspect of the hunting business, which worked out well since both his father and Chase were rather fond of the actual killing part. Unlike the rest of his family, Cooper always thought things through instead of acting on impulse, taking in every detail before choosing how to proceed with the situation. Where Chase and Jonah were ruled by their tempers, Cooper always remained calm, never letting his anger get the best of him. He had the ability to talk, lie or charm his way out of any sticky situation which is somewhat crucial in his line of work, and serves as an advantage in the instances where lives are in danger. When Cormac left for NYU, Cooper and Chase were forced to take on his responsibilities, both of them resenting Cormac for walking away from the family business. When news came of Cormac’s death, Cooper was the most affected, having been closest to him. Jonah soon left to find out what truly had happened to Cormac, leaving Cooper in charge of the inn as well as his younger sister. His father, having found at that Cormac had been murdered by vampires, went after them despite Cooper’s best efforts to make him wait for assistance.
Jonah’s death was the last straw. Cooper had lost both his brother and father to vampires, retribution was in order. The hunting business had not only taken his mother, but now, it had also claimed the lives of his brother and father, despite the fact the Cormac had left it behind. It took little convincing on Chase’s part before Cooper made the decision to move to New York, intent on finding out who was behind the deaths of his father and brother. In order to keep up appearances, Cooper got a job at a local bookstore while Chase transferred to NYU. It’s just a matter of time before everything falls into place, and when that time comes, Cooper is ready to do whatever he deems necessary in order to get revenge on those who have wronged him. Thing is, Cooper is starting to realize that hunting in New York is far more dangerous than what he imagined. For not only is he hunting on Aleksander Morganson’s territory, but he just might be after vampires who belong to the Morganson coven.
✔ Unlike Chase, Cooper doesn’t completely hate the supernatural. He does mistrust them, but he wouldn’t kill them if they give him no reason to. He and Chase often argue about her attitude towards hunting.
✔ Is a skilled fighter but prefers the research aspect of hunting while his sister takes on the more physical part of hunting. He is intelligent and manipulative, skilled at deception, capable of getting information out of others without their knowledge.
✔ Meets Selene Wright and finds himself instantly attracted to her. He tries to shake it off when he finds out she’s a vampire but can’t seem to forget about her.
