Personality

David derives most of his best personality traits from his father and his worst habits from his mother. Usually a quiet, studious boy who prefers most books over people, David enjoys studying creatures (goblins and spiders in particular), potions (he loves the chemical reactions), and plants (the more useful, the better, in his opinion). He loves to read outside and play in nature, but is not very athletic nor inclined toward physical activity. He has tried flying on two separate occasions, but was not impressed by brooms on either occasion. He believes apparition is the superior form of travel, followed by dragons, followed by floo powder.

History

David Octavius Truebridge was born to two Wizarding University professors in Cairo, Egypt at the campus hospital where his uncle, Robert Bunbury, works. He spent the first two years of his life in Cairo, mostly around the university, where he would attend his father's lectures in the company of his mother. He developed a love of travel with his parents, both of whom believe in discovery and field work as a means of learning. Shortly after his second birthday, David's mother received a job as the Headmistress of Hogwarts, and the Truebridges moved into her family manor in the English countryside. Davie claims to remember the move but despite the boy's intelligence, most do not believe him.

Since 2078 when his mother became Hogwarts' Headmistress, David has split his time between a cottage in Hogsmeade and his mother's family home in the country, with most of their time being spent in the latter. Davie does prefer the large Bunbury manor, where he often shadows his grandfather's potion-making trade in the basement, but would enjoy visiting his mum at work when school was not in session. He even tried on the Sorting Hat a few times before his own Sorting in 2087.
