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. She was forbidden from splicing, like all the other prostitutes. However, one of her customers, known only as Rupert, wanted her to "splice up in the act," claiming that it would heighten the experience for both of them. She was opposed to this idea,[1] but an audio diary by Dusky Donovan can be found in a room of the Pink Pearl where the dead bodies of what is presumed to be Dusky and her customer can be found with hypos sticking out of them.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • Donovan's corpse uses a Baby Jane model.

    • This alternate Audio Diary Portrait was inspired by the mugshot of Delores Delaney, the companion/girlfriend of the notorious gangster Alvin Karpis.[2]
