1968-2017: Backstory[]

Glenn grows up with a gangster lifestyle, this is hinted due to his father not being able to support his family. Sometime during his younger years, he meets Tracey Donovan. While working with Fraser Black as he and Glenn "worked in the same circles". Tracey decided leave Fraser due to his ruthless lifestyle. So Glenn helped her get away from him. They would then later go on to have three sons, Adam, Liam and Jesse Donovan. Some point before she went missing, Glenn slept with his eldest son’s wife Darcy Wilde, to which she has a child Toby Wilde, whom was in fact Glenn's son and not Adam's which was originally believed.
