Don is a kind yet caring individual. He cares very deeply about his family, but is known to be forgetful at times. He dislikes piracy but does it regardless, admitting that it is only to keep his family alive.
While he is brainwashed, Don shows a different side of himself. He doesn't care about human lives and becomes very agitated and trigger-happy.
During the events of the prologue, Don meets Georg Weissmann, who introduces him to Lorence Belger and brainwashes him to hijack the Linde. Eventually, through Kyle Capua and Josette Capua, he finds out that the queen is planning to pay the ransom for the passangers and therefore in order to stop their faces from being known, he decides that the hostages shall be slaughtered once the hostage money is received. His siblings disagree with his decision and call him out on it being unreasonable, however in response, he attacks Kyle. Before the argument could escalate further, bracers and an associate burst into the room and subsequently fight and defeat the Capuas. After the fight, the brainwashing disappears and Don has no memory of any of his recent actions. During the confusion resulting from this, Kyle uses a smoke bomb to allow the Capuas the escape from the room, however, upon arriving at their airship's dock, found themselves facing the Royal Army of Liberl and subsequently, got arrested for piracy.
Chapter 3: The Black Orbment
Following their arrest, the Capuas were imprisoned in Leiston Fortress. While breaking out Albert Russell, the party encounters them in their jail cell and briefly talks to them, before leaving them as they were.
Final Chapter: Turmoil in the Royal Capital
To serve as an "apology" for their actions, Dunan von Auslese made the Capuas compete in the Martial Arts Tournament. To do so, he changed the tournament structure from solo battles to team battles in order for the entire Capua family to be able to fight at once. In the first round, they manage to defeat a team from the Royal Army, however in the second round, despite managing to defeat 3 Intelligence Division members, they get singlehandedly defeated with ease by Lorence Belgar afterwards. Don and the Capuas were not seen for the rest of the game however it is later revealed that after the end of this game, Joshua broke them out of prison in order to have helpers for accomplishing his goals.
A Maiden's Resolve
In Trails in the Sky SC, Don is still a non-recruitable party member. He is first seen checking out the ruins of a destroyed village alongside his family. He then converges with her family and proceed up a hill to where Joshua Bright is.
Seeing Joshua saying "I'm home" to Karin Astray, and placing some flowers on her grave. Josette and the rest of the Capua family come up to him and happily asks Joshua about what he was doing. Joshua coldly brushes them off, telling her that's its none of her business and that she didn't have to follow him. Josette sarcastically snaps at Joshua, while her older brother Kyle states that he doesn't understand Joshua's interest in this place as it is a dump.
Don Capua mentions that they used to live up on the Northern March before, but he had never heard of a town being burned to the ground before. He then asks Joshua what the town was called and Joshua replies that the village used to be called "Hamel". Josette states that she never heard of it and asks her family if they know it. Kyle states that he doesn't, however, Don admits that he may've heard the government mention it once, but he can't remember it. Joshua then says that he is finished here and reluctantly thanks them for coming after him.
Josette states that it's okay, but she is concerned because Joshua is acting different than he used. Joshua sarcastically snaps back saying that his former job was not so different from what she had been doing. Flustered, Josette asks Joshua who is the real him, and Joshua responds that they might as consider the current him as the real him. Kyle shrugs it off and tells Joshua that he'll respect his decision because he's acting a lot more honest and trustworthy, than when he used to put on that fake smile. Don also concurs as Joshua had saved them from the Royal Army. Joshua states that there is no need to thank him, as all he needed were some loyal pawns. After the conversation continues some more, Don suggests that they go now. Joshua agrees saying that they'll be heading back to Liberl now.
The Mad Tea Party
On the West Bose Highway, some men in black are seen running along the highway, when Don Capua and Kyle Capua force them to freeze in their tracks and attacks them. Kyle calls for Josette and she attacks them too with Joshua Bright who finishes them off revealing the men to be archaisms too. Reconvening, Kyle and Joshua praise each other and the group and Josette tells them to stop because she is embarrassed.
Josette notes that this is the tenth group that they defeated and asks how many more are there. Joshua replies that this should be good enough and that they should disappear for now. Don asks what Ouroboros is up to and Kyle asks where the real men are. Joshua replies that they are probably at that tea party already and that the dolls are a distraction meant for the army.
Kyle laments that they don't know what the tea party is or where it is and Don suggests crashing it. Joshua though rejects that idea and states that the bracers are already on it, so they should just leave it up to the army and the guild. Josette then reveals that they were the ones who left the blueprints and the note and tells the rest that they have done enough for now, inadvertently mentioning Estelle in the process. Josette apologizes, but Joshua tells her not to worry as they are not a part of his life anymore and tells everyone that they'll move once the party is in full swing.
Theft of the Bobcat
Don is later seen with Joshua and his family stealing the Bobcat from the new Nebel Base Training Facility located in the ancient ruins overlooking Nebel Valley. He believed that the Bobcat was being held in the fortress across the lake, but went along with Joshua who was informed that it was in the training facility instead.
The group then infiltrates the base and move towards the Guard Captain's room. Inside the Guard Captain's room, the group waits for the captain while reminiscing. Joshua suddenly senses the captain and they attack him when he enters his room. After the battle, Joshua takes the key and Josette takes the opportunity to ask if Joshua was going easy on them the last time they fought. Joshua asks what they mean by that and Josette talks about his superhuman speed and strength. Joshua replies that he wasn't holding back and it was just that his switch hadn't been flipped yet. Seeing Josette confused, Joshua tells her that he will spare her the details and explains that he when his switch gets flipped, he gets super logical.
Josette reveals that she doesn't really get it and Kyle sums it up that Joshua's power is still the same, its just that he is using it more effectively now. Joshua replies that it is one way to look at it and Don admits that he is quite the beast now and that he can probably take down Lorence. Kyle replies that Lorence was an Ouroboros agent, and Joshua states that he couldn't beat Lorence, the 'Bladelord' in a straight up fight because he was solely trained for covert operations and guerilla warfare. Joshua further admits that as long as Lorence is there, he will never be able to destroy the society and will only be able to live up to his namesake of the Black Fang.
At the end of the passage, Joshua and co. reach the Bobcat and Don starts gushing over how he missed his aircraft. Josette is happy that they fixed it up and Kyle states what did she expect from the Liberlian Army. Joshua sternly reminds them that they don't have the time to deal with this and tells them to get the plane running. The Capuas tell him to calm down and let them get their feels out, but as they are about to board, the group gets stopped by some soldiers. Joshua and co. then fight the soldiers and win the battle.
Muller eventually arrives and is put into a deadlock with Joshua. Before an actual battle could commence, Don and Kyle had gotten the Bobcat running up again and the four fled from the base.
Infiltrating the Glorious
Some time after the dragon incident, late at night, the Bobcat is flying over the clouds. Don Capua is on the bridge flying the ship when suddenly, an alarm sounds and Kyle sees something on the radar. Kyle remarks that someone has shown up to play with them and contacts Don who confirms it and states that they are approaching from the north-east. Kyle calls out to Joshua and tells him to get to the bridge and Joshua does.
On the bridge, Joshua is greeted by Don Capua and a depressed Josette. Joshua asks what the situation is like and Don tells him to look at the screen. As Joshua looks at the screen, Don tells him that it's just as he had predicted and that a large object is entering Liberl from the north-north-east at a speed of 2100 arge per hour and at an altitude of 1560 arge and that it is probably not a normal ship. Don then admits that Joshua's special radar is working, but Joshua tells him not to congratulate him just yet because they don't know who they are yet. Joshua then hypothesizes that they could be Erebonian scout ships or something and asks Kyle if they have visual yet.
Kyle replies that he does and that he is sending the visual over to the screen. On the screen, a large red scout ship appears peeking through the clouds. Joshua confirms that it is their target and Don asks Joshua if he is ready. Joshua confirms that he is and orders Don to begin the moment he is in position. As he leaves, Josette tries to reach out to him, but just as she is about to reach him. Joshua stops and thanks Don, Josette and Kyle for everything and that he is grateful to have met them. Shocked, Josette and her family are rendered speechless and Joshua apologizes saying that he probably should've done that after the mission was over, but he didn't want to jinx himself.
Joshua then thanks everyone again and leaves the bridge. Still in shock, the male Capuas lament their loss, while Josette runs after Joshua and on the deck of the ship hugs him from behind. Don gets the attention of the scout ship, allowing Joshua to board it without difficulty. He then shakes the scout ship off their trail.
On the bridge of the Bobcat, Josette and co. notice the other airship leaving and Don celebrates how perfectly the plan went off. Josette sadly responds with a "yeah" and Kyle responds that she shouldn't worry because Joshua will come back safe and sound. Josette replies that he will because he's got a promise to keep.
Don and the others soon return after Joshua and Estelle escape from the Glorious, acting as a distraction for the two to escape. They reunite with them at Gull Seaside Way after losing their pursuers, where Don and the others greet the two, asking Estelle for a truce, who agrees since they saved them.
The Liber Ark
A couple of days later after the Liber Ark appears, the Bobcat is flying in the air spying at the ark from a distance. Freaking out, Josette asks what is that thing. An equally surprised Don estimates that its probably 5000 arge across and states that it's like a small floating island. Calmly analyzing it, Kyle tells the two that its artificial and tells them to look at the base and suggests that its more like a floating city than an island. Don states that they can't just stay here and orders his crew to go to that floating city.
Kyle and Josette ask if he is serious and Don states that he is. Don explains that since Ouroboros is targeting it, it must be filled with enough treasure to pay their debt 10 times over. Kyle is bewildered and turns to Josette to ask her to back him up. Josette apologizes and states that there is probably stuff there that she would want. Kyle sighs again praying to Aidios and Josette replies that Kyle has a point too and that they should probably be careful too, mentioning that their radio has stopped working.
Don admits that its true and mentions that even the civilian ones are dead too, but then suddenly the ark starts glowing. The light knocks out all the airship's functions. Don asks for a report and one of the crew reports that all of the ship's functions including the engines and the generators have been knocked out. Don and Josette start panicking and Kyle states that they are in trouble and that they have lost control of the helm. Josette asks if there is nothing that they can do and Kyle says that they can only pray. The Bobcat starts falling through the air.
Fortunately for Don and the others, they were able to crash onto the Ark itself, but the Bobcat was severely damaged. As the crew set out to explore, a Vogel unit arrived to investigate, prompting Josette to shoot it. This in turn caused jaegers to appear. Don, Kyle and the others made a distraction to allow Josette to escape. They were eventually captured and sent to the brig of the Glorious.
Don and the others would be freed three days later after the Arseille crashed on the Ark and found Josette, who implored them to free her brothers. After being freed, Don consulted with Albert Russell for assistance in repairing the Bobcat, which was repaired more than enough once the Aureole disappeared from the Liber Ark and caused it to collapse. Don was enraged at the thought that Joshua and Estelle had died, furious at what the "Goddess was doing". Fortunately, the two were saved by Ragnard, much to his relief.
Following the events of the Orbal Shutdown Phenomenon, Queen Alicia pardoned the Capuas and paid off all of their debts, much to their gratitude. The Capuas then decided to form the Capua Delivery Service. Don was happy with the business, as they could set their lives back on track, and that business was booming because they had the advantage of flight over their competitors.
He gave a package to a customer in Grancel and was given a letter from Joshua. Don was pleased that Joshua had spent some time letting them know of his travels, before giving what he thought was the letter to Josette; instead, Josette discovered it was actually the receipt. Don believed that he had accidentally given the customer the letter and promised to contact the customer for the mix-up, but Josette was angered at his carelessness. Don admitted that he had been careless, despite Kyle's reassurance that it was not completely his fault. They soon detected an unknown ship nearby, before realizing it was part of the society's. Don ordered the crew to prepare for a battle, having Josette man the machine gun.
The Ouroboros ship had no interest in the Bobcat, but its commanding officer, Gilbert, decided to personally attack the Bobcat for personal gain. Josette was able to shoot Gilbert down, causing Don to praise her for her efforts. Rosco soon entered with an envelope while he was securing the cargo, and gave it to Josette. Apparently, Don had forgotten to give the customer the receipt, meaning that he had not sent Joshua's letter to them by accident. After Josette read the letter, Don had Kyle accelerate the Bobcat to make up for the lost time shaking off the enemy ship.
