David Draper is the nephew of Bobbie Draper.

Biography[edit | edit source]

David studies chemistry at the lower university of Londres Nova, Mars, and is preparing for placement evaluations that will determine his career path. Like most students of David's age and talents, David works hard to maintain his model student image while exploring alternative avenues to express his autonomy.

History[edit | edit source]

David is particularly proud of his secret slush fund account, which he funds by cooking an illicit drug and selling it to Hutch, a shady dealer from Innis Deep. David also has an obvious crush on Hutch's girlfriend, Leelee.[3]

Bobbie Draper helps then fifteen yoar old David free Leelee from Hutch. David used the balance of his account to buy supplies to cook enough drugs to buy her freedom. Bobbie helped him get past curfew and disarms Hutch when threatens David.[3]

During the flight on the Razorback, between the Martian vessel and Luna, Bobbie remembers Mars and thinks about her nephew.[2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In the Novels, David has an unnamed mother living together with him and his father. In the TV show, there shortly appears a woman called Rana who is affiliated with his father, although it is not clear if she is his mother or not.
