Personality[edit | edit source]
Charles Donnelly adored his daughter, and taught her skills such as military strategy and martial arts. By his communications with Hanna, he loves her dearly and wants to keep her safe above all else. He's also willing to spend as much money on her as is needed, seeing how he gives her a generous allowance and even extra so that she can buy a Danae Matresco jumpsuit.
As a commander Donnelly is a responsible leader, and clever strategist, staying cool and calm even when the Heimdall falls under attack, knowing how to manage the people under his command, and teaching Hanna everything he knows. Hanna also recalls him practicing his Terra Day speech enough times that she knows it by heart, and when he ends up giving it, he's met with applause and approval.
