Average height. Lithe, with as much muscle as he needs but not more. He has messy black hair and nut brown eyes.
He is rather brash, arrogant and rebellious. He is also quite prideful. He tends to hold grudges and can be very malicious if rubbed the wrong way. Despite this, he is loyal to a fault. He can be quite self-conscious. He is also rather apprehensive when it comes to matters of the heart.
He has a middle class southern English accent.
He lives at Yewbreak Academy; a family manor that was converted into a children's home/school.
When David was five years old, a world-threatening disaster called his parents to action. The event was later known as the Last Stand as most of the warriors from important families died, including his parents. Thus David was orphaned. Before they had left to fight at the Last Stand, David’s parents had hired a seer to block his memories of them to spare him the pain of their loss. He and his brother Alex lived on the street for another five years until they were found by a friend of their parents, Arthur Yewbreak, who adopted them and raised them at his school for orphans. There they were educated according to the law and also taught how to control their magic and how to fight. There David met many other orphans, including Thomas Hunter, who became his best friend. When he was offered the chance to work for Yewbreak and hunt down demons at the age of fifteen, he gladly accepted and was placed on a team with Alex, Tom and a boy named James Rainford. Through their life-threatening experiences, David, James and Tom all became fast friends; Alex still was only really friends with David, though he held James in high regard. When David was sixteen he told Alex that he was gay, Alex turned out to be homophobic and from then on treated David coldly, which David answered with sarcasm and insults.
David decided to get a job hunting down demons for Yewbreak, and thus got involved when more started to come into the world than ever. He is now fighting against their leader, Marcus Rakefell.
