Jay Donovan is the main protagonist of St. Abraham. His full name is Jason Alexander Donovan, named after his father, Jason Leslie Donovan.
Jay was born Jason Alexander Donovan in 1980, making him 32 when the game takes place. He was raised in the town of Rusty Springs in an unspecified state. Jay's father left his mother and left town before Jay was born, and his mother gave him up for adoption because she wanted him to have a better life than he would living with a single mom with no job. He was adopted in 1990 by a couple named Walter and Diana Hille. The next year, they moved to Pennsylvania.
In 2005, he married Lydia Talley, an author from Philadelphia.. They had 2 children: Charlie and Lalia. He got a job as a construction worker soon afterwards and they moved back to Rusty Springs. On Jay and Lydia's 5th anniversary (2010), Jay gave Lydia a necklace with a cross/crucifix on it.
Jay is about 6'3" and 200 pounds. He has black hair in a sort-of buzzcut. He has a small beard of the same color and a small moustache. At first, he only wears a white hospital patient gown with the St. Abraham symbol in the lower left-hand corner of it. Later on, he finds a black T-shirt, a pair of gray slacks, and some white leather shoes.
