is a handsome man, standing just at 6 feet. His skin is lightly tanned, and his face is covered with light dirty blonde stubble. His dirty blonde hair is slightly unkempt, but intentionally kept that way. His features are handsome, but ruggedly so. He is muscular, but not to the point of a body builder. It’s toned, and not overstated. He typically wears custom tailored slacks, a fitted t-shirt with some sort of graphic (bands, logos, ect), and a blazer jacket. He has a tattoo of a tattoo of a shamrock on the outside of his right wrist, and wears a silver cross around his neck. On his left wrist, he wears a braided leather bracelet.
Personality: Desmond is the opposite of his sister; he is quiet, he is withdrawn, and he is calculative. He only speaks when he has something he finds valuable, and he thinks through every single possibility before he acts. He is prideful, which is why he enjoys being in control of the Seven Deadly Sins. The only person he cares about in the world is his sister, who he would protect with his life. But when it comes to anyone else, he would watch them die without blinking. He is an overachiever, and he strides to keep his organization as the best.
Biography: Desmond Burke was born on April 12, 1983 in Northern Ireland to Arthur and Marianne Burke. He was six years old when they brought home Juliet from the small hospital, and though he refuses to admit it, it was a day that was better than Christmas. They were typical siblings, but he always tried to protect her. When his father died, Desmond swore he would always look after her, even though he was only eleven.
When Thomas moved the two to Dublin, Desmond was taken under his wing and started learning the ways of the “family business”. At first, it was simple. He would clean up in the back of Thomas’s bar and run errands. But the older he got, the more he learned the truth. He wasn’t in the business of shop keeping; he was in the business of crime. His uncle distributed guns and forged money, and was going to teach Desmond how to do it without getting caught. He learned quickly, and eventually he spread into other illegal areas. He pulled off cons, heists, started distributing drugs and the like. But things took a bad turn, and Thomas screwed over the wrong people. They took a contract out on his head, and he was killed in a bad accident.
After that, Desmond devoted his time to avenging Thomas, and killing whoever had a hand in the death. He spent night and day looking, which put a distance between him and his sister. Eventually he found the person, and he slaughtered them. He didn’t flinch at the blood, he didn’t even realize what he had done til his sister found him with the blood on his hands. The questions she had after that were hard to explain, and it broke his heart when he had to take her away from Ireland. He was guilty, but eventually that guilt faded and turned into pride.
When the two came to Brooklyn, Desmond trained his sister the way Thomas trained him. He taught her how to kill, lie, and steal to make her way in life. He taught her apathy, endurance, and how to push the pain away. She learned well, too well. Eventually she outgrew Brooklyn, and left the country and her brother behind. He never lost touch with her, but he started to feel lonely. So he formed an organization he called the Deadly Sins, a small group of five criminals that pulled off small scale conjobs. They stayed off the radar, or tried to. But they grew too big, they crossed the wrong people. They were looked at as a bug, a small little thing on the radar that was easily squished. And they were. A contract was taken out, and everyone but Desmond was killed. Those events ran him out of Brooklyn, and eventually into Los Angeles where the Seven Deadly Sins are now located.
Crime Specialty: Desmond is a jack of all trades, which is one reason he is successful as the leader of the SDS.
