Fictional character history[edit]

Drew Donovan was the identical twin brother of Shane Donovan, and the son of Andrew and Margaret Donovan. During his early twenties after he finished the military force he eventually joined the ISA along with his brother.

Drew Donovan was first seen in 1988, kidnapping Roman Brady's daughter, Carrie. He was nicknamed Iago, was an assassin that worked for Stefano DiMera. He had eventually killed Ellen Hawk, Stefano's wife and mother of Benjy Hawk.

He along with Roman Brady (later retconned, see John Black) and Jeremiah Brown was all trained in the Orient (some secret place Stefano owned in Thailand) by the Kung-Fu master Orion Hawk. He also dated Calliope Jones. He killed Ambassador Chung, by blowing up the whole building, and Benjy went deaf after being in the building. Stefano hated Roman for this, since if he had done it, it would have never happened.

After being shot and wounded, Drew later escaped from Salem.

In late January 2017, Drew returns in a storyline surrounding the disappearance and supposed death of Stefano DiMera.
