Unlike several Scions before him, Daniel O'Farrell grew up in a fairly stable home in Dublin, Ireland. His mother worked for a prosecutor in the Irish courts and his father was an officer in the police. What was needed to be done for the good of the people ran through his family. It was strict, but it helped give young Daniel a good set of morals. Helped that his mother could barely remember a night out on the town or the hansom young attorney she had been working with several years back.
While growing up he had a habit of getting into fights will bullies, not so much that they picked on him as much as he fought them the moment he heard about them doing something to some of the other kids. He gained a reputation as someone who looked out for the younger kids on the playground.
As soon as he was finished with his schooling, he decided to join the police like his father before him. As time went by he climbed the ranks over the years of service and gained the rank of inspector. He proved to be sharp eyed and smart enough, not to mention stubborn enough, to successfully solve most case that came his way.
As of recently, he's growing more and more concerned about the news of Children of the Gods and Titans fighting across the world. He knew deep down he should be help keep the damage down caused by these new beings of legends fighting their war, but he knew he was just human, there was little he could do against such beings. Course, that was about to change.
It was a new case for him that lead to his visitation. He was handed the case of trying to track down a sudden rash of child kidnappings after many of the other Inspectors were left stumped. After weeks of looking into it, he finally found a witness that said they spotted a strange old woman lead a child out of the park. Seizing on the opportunity, he eventually tracked her down to a small private home on the outskirts of the city.
When he arrived at the house with his partner Anthony, things quickly fell apart. They found the house littered with the bones, with blood and rotten meat plastered over the walls and the most recent children almost ready to be devoured by a monstrous hag with a glass eye. They both tried to fight, but Anthony was quickly ripped limb from limb. Daniel only managed to survive by putting a bullet in the woman's other eye after she managed to shatter the bones of his leg and left hand. He struggled to get the children free despite his injuries. Unfortunately, his gun had not finished off the twisted monster and she was all but ready to end the Inspector once and for all. Well, she would have, had Daniels true father kicked down the door and made quick work of her with a sword that glowed with a brilliant light.
After all was said and done, Nuada pulled him aside and explained that he was his father, something his mother couldn't remember clearly due to one too many shots of whiskey one night. He told him that he was quite proud of him, but that he was needed to fight. He gave him a Badge that could turn into a shield, a silver ring made from the shavings of his own silver hand and the Hags glass eye, which holds power to answer questions and find whatever one seeks, that includes darker purposes. He said that he needed to make his way to New Atlantis, explaining that events happening there are having ramifications across the world, including Ireland and that he needs someone to help protect the people there and stop whatever dark forces that are at work. After finishing his explanation of Daniels duties, he vanished.
And thus, a few days later, Daniel found himself boarding a flight to the United States, empowered by gods.
A bit about the character's personality.
Yeah, who do you know? Who is important?
