Perhaps this is because of his relaxed nature. He's definitely a go-with-the-flow sort of person, and doesn't see the point in worrying about much if there's nothing that can be done. Missed an exit on a highway? Well, he can always get the next one and turn around. Got a bad haircut? Hair always grows out!
He's also a little bit on the lazy side when it comes to his own life. He's more of a homebody than anything, and would rather be taking a nap or reading a book instead of going out on the town. In previous jobs, he got into trouble for dawdling around instead of doing busywork. Subsequently, his house is frequently messy as he puts off doing chores until they absolutely need to be done.
If there's one thing in life he does worry about, though, it's his daughter. When Daisy was born, Declan felt a shift in his life and an overwhelming love he'd never felt before. He'd give up everything for his daughter, even his last breath if it meant she could live. He spoiled her more than he should have when she was a baby, and was perhaps a little lax when giving out punishments, but he was a great father overall. He calls his daughter regularly and visits when he can and gets excited when she comes to pay him a visit in Ioana.
He has a hard time saying no to more people than just his daughter. He's always been a follower more than a leader and would prefer other people to be in charge and make the decisions. So when someone asks him to do something, as long as he has no moral qualms about it, he simply goes along with it. His ex-wife has called him a pushover on more than one occasion.
At least, that's how it was until he met Teresa. After dating for a while, Teresa professed that she had an attraction to fireman. Declan, eager to please and impress her, became a fireman himself. Soon after, they were married. He was 21 and she was 20. His parents couldn't be too disappointed at the noble choice, though now they would have to look for someone else to manage the shop once they got too old.
Three years later, they had Daisy and decided one child was enough.
Declan fought his fair share of fires, though when possible, he would stay behind. He often worried what would happen if he were to die, leaving Daisy and Teresa behind. The thought alone made him feel sick. He was often left the task of dispatching and cooking. He had no qualms with either, and was more than happy to practice grilling out and making chili. He became pretty well known for his chili throughout the precinct and often had fellow fire department members ask him for his recipe. He kept it to himself, however, enjoying the ego boost whenever anyone complimented him.
After 17 years of marriage, Declan and Teresa grew apart. They still loved each other, but they were no longer in love. With no hard feelings, the couple divorced, and Declan still considers Teresa a close friend. Still, it was hard to be so close to her, so Declan moved to the nearby town of Ioana and joined the fire department there. He misses his daughter terribly, but tries to see her weekly and calls her nearly every day. The only room in the house he keeps immaculately clean is the guest bedroom, should she decide to come visit.
