Personality: David is a complex man and a perfect example of why you should never judge a book by its cover. To the public, he appears to be a friendly, selfless man with perhaps a slightly too large ego. He seems to have a strong sense of morality and a willingness to stick his neck out for the greater good. This is, of course, exactly what he wants people to think.

Though genuinely affable and aware of the difference between right and wrong, he places everyone else far enough below himself in importance that he shows little regard for the effects of his actions on others. Though not actively malicious, he is largely selfish and self centered, not hesitating to deceive or betray people so long as it advances his own agenda. Nor is he afraid to get his own hands dirty, confronting his foes in person when necessary and accepting the idea that killing someone-or worse-might be the best course of action for him.

As much of his public image is forged, a large portion of it is honest. David is a distinct extrovert, enjoying the company of others even if he does regard them mostly as unimportant. While his sense of humor is often at others' expense, he can just as frequently be heard making a joke about the situation at large, a clever play on words or even a light quip at his own expense. Overall, his attitude toward most things in life is casual and laid back, even allowing him to take major defeats in stride and find the bright side to them, turning what at first seemed to be a total loss into a victory.

Despite his casual attitude toward vile acts and cheerful acceptance of his role as a villain, he is still, at his core, human and does possess some sense of honor. Though willing to kill, he takes no pleasure in it and avoids it where possible, even making temporary truces with his enemies to stop villains fouler than himself. While willing to betray, he repays debts he considers major and doesn't make a habit of outright breaking his word. And as self centered as he is, he is capable of love. In fact, the safety of his loved ones is the one thing he is genuinely willing to risk himself for despite his deeply rooted fear of dying and leaving his accomplishments behind to rot. Family are the only people he considers more important than himself.
