David was living as a mild-mannered librarian when one day he stumbled into a radioactive vat full of books and video games and was instantly transformed into Nerd Man. His powers include not being qualified (or interested) in having anything to do with the realities of life, and so he spends his time reading and writing and gaming, with occasional breaks for work and family. David named his daughter Coraline, proof that he has very little respect for normal society and is completely immersed in fantasy. David's favorite authors include Grandfather Tolkien, Uncle Steve (Erikson), and that weird cousin with the crazy hair, Neil. David is usually obsessed with Dark Souls and Fire Emblem, though occasionally ventures into various Final Fantasy and Dragon Age territories. David also loves trees and bears.
