Dusky Donovan 2
I said honey, I ain't doing it for the heights, I'm doing it for the scratch.
― Dusky Donovan[src]

Dusky Donovan was a prostitute working at The Pink Pearl under the management of Daniel Wales.


Dusky Donovan was forbidden from splicing, like all the other prostitutes under Daniel Wales. However, one of her customers, called Rupert, wanted her to "splice up in the act", claiming that it would heighten the experience for both of them, but she was opposed to this idea.[1]

The dead bodies of what are presumed to be Dusky and her customer can be found with hypos sticking out of them in a room at the Pink Pearl in Siren Alley.

Behind the Scenes[]

  • Dusky Donovan's corpse uses a Baby Jane model.
  • Donovan's Audio Diary portrait was inspired by the mugshot of an unknown woman, detained on January 25th, 1941.
  • Donovan has more than one diary image, and a different image may show for different platforms.[citation needed] The diary image that appears in the BioShock 2 Strategy Guide is shown in the gallery above. The one that appears in-game is shown at the top of the page.
    • This alternate Audio Diary Portrait was inspired by the mugshot of Delores Delaney, the girlfriend of the notorious gangster Alvin Karpis.[2]
