Deacon Sharpe is the son of Daryl Sharpe and the father of Eric Sharpe and Hope Logan. He lived an abusive childhood, with Daryl being very violent towards him.

The Bold and the Beautiful

In 2000, Amber Moore was about to get married to CJ, but her ex-husband Rick Forrester was desperate to stop the wedding. He found Amber's adopted son, Little Eric's, biological father, and brought him to town. Rick asked Deacon to sign over all parental rights to Little Eric to him and Amber, and Deacon agreed. But Deacon faltered, and took Little Eric to live with him and his girlfriend, Carmen Arena.

Deacon started to feel affection for Amber, who often came to visit Little Eric. Carmen felt jealous. One night, she took Little Eric up to the roof. Amber followed, and talked Carmen into handing Little Eric to Deacon. There was a struggle and Carmen fell to her death.

A legal arrangement outside of the Forrester family influence had Amber agree to a four month live-in arrangement with Deacon and Little Eric, at the end of which Deacon would relinquish all parental rights and let Amber have Little Eric. Brooke, desperate to keep Amber away from her son Rick, drove Amber into Deacon's arms, and a kiss seen by Rick ended his engagement to Amber. Deacon organized a surprise getaway for Amber to Las Vegas where they bonded.

Stephanie Forrester informed Rick of Brooke's manipulation and searched for Amber. Rick and Amber reunited and decided to get married after all. Deacon decided to let Amber have visitation of Little Eric.

Deacon soon developed a friendship with Bridget Forrester (Rick's sister) and both were unaware of who the other was for awhile. Deacon came clean and told her his name. Bridget was stunned when she realized who he was but Deacon made her into thinking he cared for her. At Rick and Amber's wedding, Bridget introduced him as her date.

After getting beaten up by Ridge, Thorne and Eric Forrester, Deacon and Bridget ran off to Las Vegas to get married. The Forresters were horrified by this. They called Deacon on speaker phone to demand that Bridget was sent home, and Deacon responded by leaving the phone on while he and Bridget made love.

The next day, Deacon was run over by a car. Bridget was impressed when he didn't press charges against the driver - Eric.

Deacon showed guilt over his actions related to Bridget but felt it was necessary to get Amber and Little Eric ("Lil D") back. Bridget was devastated when she overheard Deacon admit to Amber that their marriage was a farce. Bridget confronted Deacon and drove off, humiliated. When Deacon followed her, Bridget slammed her foot on the accelerator, lost control of the car, and swerved off the road. While Bridget was unconscious and still recovering from surgery, Deacon realized he did have feelings for her. Deacon admitted he didn't realize how important Bridget was to him until the accident occurred and wanted to make their marriage a real one.

Brooke persuaded Deacon to divorce Bridget. They then talked about their screwed up love lives, and made love.

Deacon later asked Bridget for a divorce, explaining he slept with another woman, but he still loved her. Bridget decided to stay with him. Meanwhile, Brooke realized that she was pregnant.

Deacon helped Brooke save her company, and she made him Head of Promotions. Brooke's boyfriend Whip Jones, who was supposed to have gotten that position, told everyone he was Brooke's baby's father, then blackmailed her. Feeling guilty, Brooke and Whip moved to Paris. Infuriated, Deacon went after them and he and Brooke made love one last time.

Deacon and Bridget divorced, and Deacon met Macy Alexander after meeting her at an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting. They fell in love and married, with plans for the two of them to raise Little Eric together. Tragically, Macy died in an accident at Oscar Marone's bar, Oz.

Deacon eventually came back to try to be part of Hope's life again when Brooke was with Nick Marone and Nick talked Brooke into allowing Deacon to be a father to Hope. Deacon wanted Nick to adopt Hope because he was so grateful, so he signed the rights over to Nick once Nick and Brooke got married and left town. Years later after Nick and Brooke broke up, Deacon had to sign off on parental rights to Hope over to Ridge when Brooke lost custody of the kids due to her inability to care for them correctly. Not long after, Deacon started to have an affair with Jackie Marone, and often tormented Massimo with this. Massimo spiked many of Deacon's drinks with alcohol in order to get revenge for the affair, and once Deacon realised this, he left town along with Little Eric.

In 2009, Deacon moved to Genoa City, where he remained for a number of years. He had a sexual relationship with a lady named Diane Jenkins, and was later involved in her murder. Deacon was arrested and sent to prison.

Months later, Bill Spencer Jr. approached an imprisoned Deacon in Genoa City to help him take part of his plans to keep his son Liam Spencer and Deacon's daughter Hope apart. After much reluctance Deacon agrees to help Bill in exchange for his freedom. He goes to Italy (the location of Hope and Liam's wedding) with Bill and his assistant Alison Montgomery. Deacon is confide to inside when they arrive whilst Bill is out trying to convince Liam's ex-wife Steffy Forrester to stay in Italy, hinting that something could or may happen to stop the wedding. Deacon, however, is still conflicted about what is to come, knowing that he could potentially destroy his daughter. He is also frustrated as well for not being able to go outside since his release from prison. Being alone with only Alison, Deacon inquires to her about Liam and Hope's relationship. Alison responds by saying whilst she doesn't know Hope very well, she is very much in love with Liam as he is with her. This only makes it harder for Deacon because he genuinely doesn't want to hurt his daughter especially after knowing what she has accomplished with her "Hope for the Future" fashion line and how it is based on her morals and values. However he goes along with Bill's scheme, finally reuniting with his daughter and creating a series of misunderstandings that almost break her and Liam apart. Deacon soon disappears again and despite the many inferences, the wedding happens.

Deacon later returns after learning that the wedding was legally invalid and Liam and Hope are no longer together. Feeling responsible and guilty, He threatens Bill with telling both Liam and Hope the reason behind the demise of their relationship. Unknown to both of them Katie Logan Spencer, Bill's wife and Hope's aunt had overheard the whole conversation. Confronting both them over what she has heard. Deacon neither denying nor confirming anything exits, leaving Bill to explain to his enraged pregnant wife, who soon goes into early labour.

While Brooke and Ridge were away on their honeymoon, Deacon texted Brooke to inform her that he will be a part of Hope's life, which led to the end of Brooke's marriage to Ridge when Brooke denied having spoken to him. Deacon later confronts Bill again, asking for a job. Bill, however, is less than pleased and again Deacon leaves threatening to tell Liam about what happened in Italy.

Quinn Fuller had just been fired from her job at Forrester Creations and she entered a bar and started drinking. Deacon sat next to her and started talking to her. Quinn mentioned that her son, Wyatt Spencer is in love with a girl who she later says is Hope Logan and Deacon said he's her daddy. Quinn took an interest in Deacon and gave him her phone number to call or text. Deacon goes over to the Logan Mansion and tells Hope that he wants to be there for her and be a better father. Quinn plans for her and Deacon to get Wyatt and Hope together again. Deacon needed something in exchange and told her he needed a place to stay. He asked to stay at her house and Quinn allowed him to stay.

After a delusional reconciliation with Brooke, Deacon started having romantic feelings for Quinn and kissed her twice, but Hope didn't accept that and she tried to convince Deacon that Quinn is using him. Quinn apologized and as she was walking away, pregnant Hope tripped down the patio steps. Deacon got angry with Quinn once he learned Hope fell. Hope was okay but she miscarried the baby. Deacon found Quinn on the roof ready to jump and Bill convincing her to end it. Deacon convinced Quinn to stop and comforted her and yelled at Bill for playing with an upset person's mind. Quinn told Deacon she'd understand if he'd want to leave her but Deacon convinced her not to kill herself again because he can't go on without her.

Quinn began to get nervous with Brooke back in town. Deacon insisted he's committed to her. Brooke texted Deacon to stop by. Brooke had been drinking and explained she's lonely because all the men in her life have left her and she never had to go home without a man to sleep with. Deacon assured her she can always turn to him. Deacon stopped her from drinking and gave her some aspirins and water and left. Brooke put down the aspirins and drank some more alcohol.

Deacon left to grab a bite to eat and ran into Brooke. He sat down with her who was drunk and he carried her to his car while she was embarrassing herself. They arrived at the Logan Mansion when Brooke put on a bikini and started prancing around wanting to go in the pool. Deacon resisted but then kissed Brooke. Deacon apologized and left. Quinn questioned the wait, and deacon explained what happened, subtracting the kiss part. Quinn left to go over to Brooke's who was tipsy and slapped her down to the floor, warning her to stay away from Deacon and her. Wyatt arrived at Quinn's and told Deacon he was concerned. Brooke told Deacon what had happened and Deacon was furious with Quinn. Quinn suggested he'd just leave her if he hates her that much. Deacon stayed and proposed to Quinn, which made her very happy. Deacon informed Brooke about the big news who didn't approve of this. Quinn was eavesdropping and after Deacon left, Quinn entered and stated they are getting married. Brooke insisted that she won't let this happen. Quinn was wary to this to Deacon about what Brooke said, Deacon stated she can't get in their way. Deacon informed Brooke that he absolutely wants to marry Quinn. Deacon admit to Quinn that he's an alcoholic and started attending AA meetings again. Little did Quinn know, that Deacon met up with Brooke at that very same meeting.

One day, Quinn hugged Deacon and smelled perfume and Deacon stated he was helping an AA friend whom Quinn mentioned she never knew was a female. Later when Brooke arrived, Quinn sniffed Brooke and realized the scents match. Quinn is upset that Deacon was helping out Brooke and he explained he's just helping out a friend and Quinn was very angry at Brooke but backed off and was proud of Deacon. But Wyatt overheard Deacon telling Brooke they could have a future together if he wasn't engaged to Quinn. He told his mother who was angry at Deacon at first but afterwards forgave him.

On Deacon and Quinn's wedding day, Brooke crashed it with a laptop showing a live video chat with Hope. Hope tried guilt tripping Deacon into not marrying Quinn. Hope stated it would strain their relationship threatened to exclude him from her life once again. Deacon told Hope sorry and told Brooke to leave. Wyatt gave Quinn and Deacon his blessing and they get married. Months later Quinn tells Wyatt that she and Deacon are separated because their marriage was doomed from the beginning since he's not a Spencer man, the only ones who have ever been able to truly capture her heart. Wyatt peppers her with questions and she says Deacon is a good man and that he went to Europe.

He comes back a few weeks later and Deacon discovers Quinn has kidnapped a memory loss Liam Spencer and that she's making him believe she's his wife. Deacon helps Quinn during the first months but then decides that Liam has to return.

Quinn decides then to bring Liam to visit reef near Topanga with the help of Deacon and, remembering what he had said about making Liam return to his family, threw Deacon into the ocean. Deacon survived and went to search for Quinn. Meanwhile, Liam had been found by Wyatt. With the help of Deacon she managed to escape at first but she was then captured. When she was discharged she started a relationship with Eric Forrester; Deacon told Quinn to pay attention since she's hated by all of Eric's family but she ignores Deacon's advice. When Eric goes to Monte Carlo, Quinn wants to go to with him but his family's there. Deacon books a flight for Quinn. After Steffy saw her in Monte Carlo kissing Eric, Quinn came back to Los Angeles ending his relationship with Eric and told Deacon everything.

In June 2017, Deacon returns to Los Angeles and confronts Quinn, revealing himself as the culprit who has been shooting at her on multiple occasions. Deacon is arrested by lieutenant Baker and sent to prison.

In October 2021, Deacon returns on-screen visiting his biological daughter Hope Logan and granddaughter Beth Spencer].
