Patrick Danville (b. 1989) was the son of Sonia Danville. When he was a child, he dreamed of Roland Deschain and the Crimson King; in October of 1993, he drew a prophetic picture of Roland and the King at the Dark Tower. On October 8th, 1993, he attended a Susan Day rally with his mother at the Derry Civic Centre; due to the efforts of Ralph Roberts, he and his mother survived Ed Deepneau's attempt to crash a plane into the building.
Nancy gifts Roland Insomnia, by Stephen King, and warns him that Patrick Danville may have an impact on his quest.
Nancy said, “In the story, the Crimson King is using Ed Deepneau to kill one single child, a boy named Patrick Danville. Just before the attack, while Patrick and his mother are waiting for a woman to make a speech, the boy draws a picture, one that shows you, Roland, and the Crimson King, apparently imprisoned at the top of the Dark Tower.”
