"I don't fit in anywhere else. I'm not cut out to be a civilian and I'm done being a soldier. I'm not good at a lot of things, but I'm good at that. And I would be good for the RAC." - D'avin[1]

D'avin Jaqobis is a main character appearing in Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3 of Killjoys.

He is portrayed by actor Luke Macfarlane.

D'avin is a member of RAC team 25698-A[2], one of the top teams of bounty hunters in the Quad.

Biography Edit

D'avin is many things – handsome, uber masculine, sarcastic, incredibly loyal – but he is one thing above all: a born soldier. He dreamed of enlisting since boyhood, and his hard-won expertise in tactics, maneuvers and hand-to-hand combat make him an instant asset to the Killjoy team. [3]

D'avin Jaqobis grew up on Telen with his younger brother, John Andras Jaqobis.[4] When D'avin was younger he had a fairly close relationship with his brother. As kids they went skating together at Kipsee.[5] One time when they went a "mean fat" kid named Randy whom they both hated and who used to steal their skates fell through the ice, D'avin jumped in to rescue him without a second thought.

Telen S2E5


At some point when they were kids D'avin stole one of John's favorite Captain Apex comic books to trade, but told him he lost it. Johnny "never forgave him for that."[6]

D'avin does not have fond memories of his father. In fact, his favorite childhood memory is of the time that their dad disappeared for a month describing it as "It was quiet." An old family joke shared among the Jaqobis is that there are "space rats." It was their father's attempt to scare his kids out of leaving. John speculates that he was trying to keep D'avin from joining the Nova Cadets.[7] It didn't work. Nine years prior to the start of the series D'avin joined the Nova Cadets and lost contact with his family a year afterwards.[8] D'avin did well in the military, achieving the rank of Second Shield of the Royal Syndicate of the Sky Born unit.[9]

It is unclear when the military made him a subject of an experiment via mind control. The initial intention was a proof of concept for turning a soldier against their own according to Dr. Pim Jaegar.[10] The experiment was unsuccessful and resulted in D'avin taking out his team. After the project failure D'avin was discharged from the military and his memories were erased. D'avin, however, experienced residual memories from the event. Presumably confused, he decided to track down Dr. Jaegar. He found her once on "their home world", which prompted her to go to The Quad, now working for The Company. The Company initiated a kill warrant on him in case he came to the Quad and sought her out again.

D'avin continued to look for Dr. Jaegar, traveling under the alias of Kobee Andras as he traveled to the the Quad on a slaver ship as an indentured fighter.[11] He is surprised when Johnny enters the ring as a new opponent. Johnny saw the kill warrant on his brother and signed up for it under Dutch's name in an attempt to rescue him and keep him from being killed. As D'avin and John fight in the ring, John asks where he has been and tells D'av that their mother has died of Quinsy.

Meanwhile, Dutch has arrived on the ship in order to keep Johny from getting into trouble for accepting a warrant above his level, and sees that Fancy Lee is also assigned to the kill warrant. Dutch manages to sedate D'avin with a dart before Fancy can kill him with a poisoned blade shot from a launcher. Dutch and Johnny get D'avin back to their ship, Lucy, and take off. Dutch was told by Bellus Haardy that the Company had taken out the warrant on D'av and comes up with a plan to get the warrant dropped and keep Johnny out of trouble. The trio everntaully track down a fugitive and stolen company information and trade the information for removal of the kill warrant.

D'avin helps Dutch and Johnny complete a Hostage Exchange Warrant to retrieve the daughter of a mayor from a gang lord in Sugar Point.[12] After that mission D'avin becomes a Killjoy and a member of the team, working with Dutch and Johnny to serve warrants and collect the bounties.[13] The team rescued a young woman who was pregnant with the heir to Land Lahani[14] of The Nine and returned her and the newborn baby to Qresh. As a top Killjoy team in the Quad, they competed in a Black Warrant to capture Big Joe, a rogue Killjoy wanted for attacking Company ships and stealing their cargo.[15]

Pawter Simms, a doctor in Old Town on Westerley, diagnoses D'av with Stress Response Syndrome from his military service, not knowing that D'avin was the subject of mind control experiments. The team helps D'avin track down Dr. Jaegar and discovers the truth behind D'avin's nightmares, but not before Dr. Jaegar activates the mind control process on D'avin and forces him to attack both Dutch and Johnny.[16]

D'avin and Johnny help Dutch track down Khlyen, who trained her as a child to be an assassin and from whom she escaped six years ago. They track him to the RAC Cruiser[17] and help Dutch infiltrate the ship to find him. While Dutch gains some information from Khlyen, she is not successful in stopping him from stalking her. Eventually, Khylen captures D'avin and takes him to Arkyn to place him in the secret Red 17 program.[18]

Dutch and Johnny track D'avin to Arkyn and after a mission to find the technology they need to get through Arkyn's defensive shield, and are able to rescue him from the moon before he is made a Level 6 Agent.[19]

Physical AppearanceEdit

D'avin is tall with a broad, athletic build and cropped brown hair. He has dark eyes and a strong jawline.

Relationships Edit

John Jaqobis Edit

They are brothers, though at the beginning of the show their relationship was non-existent. They hadn't seen each other in eight years and in the mean-time, life passed by, including the death of their mother which D'avin did not know about until John told him in Bangarang. Their relationship grows as the show goes on.

Dutch Edit

There is seemingly on both sides an instant attraction when they first meet in Bangarang. It takes until Kiss Kiss Bye Bye for the two of them to share a kiss (twice) before sleeping together. John, finds out by seeing a trail of clothing leading to D'avin's bedroom.
