Clayton Danvers by lotus-devil Clayton Danvers by lotus-devil
Don’t let my sig by his foot fool you, this is OLD. Over a year old actually. Though I edited him out, there’s another character on this page, and I created him last year, so yeah.

As the title says, this is Clayton Danvers, a character in Kelley Armstrong’s wonderful series, Women of the Otherworld. There’s been 6 novels and several novellas published. I’ve only read the novels, but I adore the series. My faves are the first two books, Bitten and Stolen, that focus on a female werewolf named Elena. Clayton is her lover. As you expected, he’s a werewolf too.

But, there’s more to Clayton that makes him my favorite character in Kelley’s books. First of all, he’s 37 and could still pass for 21. Having Baywatch good looks is a definite plus, but what makes it even better is that he’s a genius with a PhD in anthropology. Hell, he’s even done lectures. What makes him tops hands down for me though, is his background.

In Kelley’s world, werewolves are male only, and they can’t transform until the boys reach puberty. That all was fine and dandy until the current Pack Alpha, Jeremy, (werewolf pack) found a five year old boy in the Louisiana Bayou who was able to change into a werewolf and was killing humans. This was Clayton. Rather than sentence the boy to death, as was normal for werewolves who feasted on humans, Jeremy took the boy back to the Pack home, Stonehaven, and adopted the boy as his son.

As Clay grew, he began to get teased at school for his bayou accent. Rather than lose the accent, he chose to keep it. This made him stand out, especially since Stonehaven is located in northern New York state.

Clay never lost the accent either. And now he’s the muscle for the Pack, as well as Jeremy’s bodyguard.
Here’s the man who, when saying “darling”, says “dah-lin”. That makes him loveable, at least for me :giggle:

So this is basically my representation of Clay. He doesn’t wear a lot of color, so I made his outfit as simple as possible.

And he doesn’t really have wolf ears and a tail, I just got bored. ^^;

I’ll probably get around to drawing more of Kelley’s characters.

Has anyone gotten the Men of the Otherworld book by Kelley Armstrong? I LOVE IT!!!!! YOU FIND OUT ABOUT JEREMY'S BIRTH, HIS DAD AND LITTLE CLAY!!!!

I found the most interesting part was finding out about Jeremys Mother - Finally it ties up a much debated question about his special abilities.
My Favourite character is Nick and Antonio, they are brilliant and I think Nick has alot of potential and think he might surprise us in future books.
Iv always wondered how things would go if nick ever did anything with elena...Clay would most likely kill him but would make for an interesting read

He looks awesome! I love Clayton! :D
I just finished reading Men of the Otherworld which was really amazing. It was about Clayton and him growing up with Jeremy. Have you read it? It just came out this year.

This is amazing. Clay is one of my favourite characters also. :heart: He's just so sweet sometimes :)

haha, I know what you mean! :D I always loved Clay right from the get-go :giggle: He can be so awkward, but still so badass!
And now hes a daddy!! :love:

Who are your other fave characters? Mine would probably have to be Adam and Jeremy, oh, and Jaime (gotta love the necros)
xcauchemars Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2008
I haven't read all of the books, but I really love Jeremy and Clay. :) I just started the series a week and a bit ago.

really? :D Well let me tell you, you're gonna love it! :love:
I just got the latest book in the series today (At least I think it's the latest) Called Personal Demon. I'm really looking forward to starting it, but I need to finish another book first ^^;
Oh, and here's a helpful hint, Kelley has a lot of short stories, too. You can find them on her website, just google her name and that'll get you there ;P
Happy reading, my dear! :hug:

Hey, you forgot the fact the he's a psychotic badass. hehe. I looooove ClaytonxElena. Bitten/Stolen/Broken are my favorite books in the whole world hehe. It's terrible when I read about Clayton. I get horribly giggly. =(

Really, though, I love your picture. I wish I could draw like that. He looks sexeh!

haha, true true ^^; That's probably my fave couple in the series, too, but i was really happy when Jer and Jaime got together. That scene in her bedroom was hilarious!! :XD: I also really like Adam as a character, and I wish Kelley would do more with him :giggle:
And thanks so much for liking my pic. I was playing on the whole blond curls thing :D the ears and tail were just random, but i had lots of fun with it. I wanna do everyone else at some point as well :boogie:
I actually sent this pic to Kelley, and she was so thrilled, it mafdde me feel so good :blushes: Thanks again! I love finding a fellow fan! :hug:

my, he's got a very high IQ! :XD:
He looks cute :) I like the pose, the body language of it looks like he's a nice person :D
lotus-devil Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
haha, yep, he's got brains, brawns, and good looks, but he's far from nice. Well, he is to the other pack members, but on a social skills scale of 1-10, he ranks a 2. If you're Pack, he's great, if you're not, watch out! :D

Cool thing is that I sent a link to this to the author, Kelley Armstrong, and she loved it to! :boogie:
