He is one of the foster children under the care of the Weatherheads. He attends Greeley Elementary. He claimed he saw an angel in his room the night before. However, as this claim clashed with the Weatherheads' agnostic doctrine, David was sent to the punishment room to be tortured by the foster father, with Dr. Pep-er being sprayed into his face until he confessed that certainties such as angels were false. Since the Weatherheads are agonistic, David must not be certain of everything that happens around him.
