David King is one of 28 Survivors currently featured in Dead by Daylight, he was added back in July 2017 with the chapter known as A Lullaby for the Dark which came with the Killer known as the Huntress. David King is known for being a rugged Scrapper with rewarding high-risk plays within the game. His personal Perks, We’re Gonna Live Forever , Dead Hard , and No Mither , reward an aggressive, confrontational play style, but leave him vulnerable. His Perks are a result of his years playing rugby and stem from his strong physique and his need for Adrenaline. But being fast isn’t everything, he’s sometimes also a team player. But that side is seldom seen. His skill rating is intermediate just due to the fact of his personal perks.
The single child of a wealthy family, David King seemed destined for greatness. While growing up in Manchester, he demonstrated serious potential in both sports and academics, and with his family connections, all doors were open to him. He could have succeeded at anything, if it weren’t for his combative nature. David lived for the adrenaline rush of a good fight and would go out of his way to get into one.
His robustness and athletic abilities led him to rugby, where he could cut loose and really cause a ruckus. King excelled and gained a reputation as a promising, if somewhat reckless, rookie. His meteoric rise came to an abrupt end when he lost his temper and assaulted a referee, earning himself a lifetime ban from the league and cutting short what most people assumed was going to be a long, successful career. King was unconcerned; money was no issue, so he took it as an early retirement and focused on other fun things to do.
Free from the constraints of a career and enabled by the wealth of his family, David King spent most of his time at the pub, drinking, watching games, and getting into fights. Some might say he was wasting his life away. Not many people knew that he was an occasional “debt collector” or that he fought in clandestine bare-knuckle fight clubs.
When David King stopped showing up at the pub, the few friends he still had were not surprised. They figured he had finally picked a fight with someone stronger than he was. In a way, they were right.
