Fictional biography 
Bo Brady, the only son of Caroline Brady, and Victor Kiriakis, originally believes that Shawn Brady is his biological father, until Caroline reveals he is not. Bo first came to Salem in 1983. He eventually welcomes his first child, Shawn-Douglas Brady into the family. Bo becomes a detective for the Salem Police Department. Much later Bo has another child, Zack Brady.
During the Salem Stalker Storyline, Bo loses both his mother (Caroline), and his brother (Roman). He decides to rejoin the police force, and is the one who arrests Marlena Evans Black. When all are discovered to be alive on an island, Bo is part of the rescue team, and is shocked to find his past love, Billie Reed, there as well. On New Years Day 2006, Zack is hit by a car driven by his daughter Chelsea Brady. Bo learns that Chelsea was the one driving the car that hit Zack, but agrees to keep it secret from everyone because at the time, he believed that the truth would be too hard.
In 2008, Bo's pancreas was mysteriously shutting down. His daughter Chelsea saved his life by donating a part of her pancreas to her father.
After Bo suffers a minor concussion in a fall around Christmas, 2008, he begins to experience psychic visions. These visions ultimately cause a rift in the space time continuum. Bo is later knocked out again and he no longer has any visions.
On October 30, 2012, Bo left town with his mother Caroline in order for her to undergo treatment for Alzheimer's.
Bo and Caroline returned to Salem a month later in November 2012. However, with portrayer Peter Reckell vacating the role earlier in the year, Bo has been reverted to an offscreen character, only being mentioned verbally by family and friends now.
