David is a shy, thoughtful and withdrawn man who struggles with the social complexities of the world. His awkwardness leads to him lacking confidence in conversation, meaning that he often comes out with dull, inane comments - so he favours silence. But he’s a good and diligent nurse, who follows instructions well and goes about his job efficiently and quietly. David is a brilliant listener, and although he doesn’t speak often, what he does say is often insightful and brilliant. He would love to be different; he would love to unleash the bold, confident side of his personality, but is too afraid of the consequences.
