Biography[]

Early Life[]

David Martinez was born to Gloria Martinez and an unknown father.[8] His father would later abandon his family, forcing Gloria to raise David all by herself. He grew up on the streets of Santo Domingo, while living out of an apartment of Megabuilding H4 in Arroyo. Due to his mother putting great effort into her job as an EMT for Night City Medical Center, David was eligible for enrollment into the Arasaka Academy located in Corpo Plaza. After joining the academy, he began selling XBDs to classmates that he obtained from a ripperdoc friend of his called Doc.[1]

A Day in the Life[]

One night, Martinez watched a brand new illegal braindance that Doc obtained from Jimmy Kurosaki. The braindance contained the death of the former New United States Armed Forces Lt. Col. James Norris, who went cyberpsycho a couple hours prior.[1]

The following day, after finding his mother sleeping on the couch, the two talked money problems regarding his school expenses and watched the news of James Norris' death, which included her mom carrying the body. Martinez caught a glimpse of a young woman on his way to school, who disappeared when he attempted to approach her. During that day's class, his outdated braindance wreath spiked his classmates wreaths, because he had Doc install a faulty software update to save money. This caused an outrage among the students, Katsuo Tanaka in particular, the son of Tanaka, a high Arasaka executive. After the incident, David and his mother met with the academy's principal, whom suggested that David could benefit from a change of environment as he did not fit in with his wealthier classmates. Gloria agreed to pay any monetary damages made.[1]

While driving home, the two of them became bystanders in an Animals assault on an Arasaka corporate vehicle, where they crashed into the corporate vehicle after it was blown up by a rocket. Martinez saw his mother lying motionless on the road after regaining consciousness. Trauma Team arrived shortly after, but ignored them for not being insured, and only took the corporate client with them. David managed to bring his mother to a back-alley clinic, where she got stabilized. Martinez arrived back at the apartment with his mother's belongings and discovered that she had procured a military grade Sandevistan neuralware implant from the cyberpsycho. David informed Doc about the implant and was told that it was worth around 10,000 eurodollars on the black market.[1]

The next morning, on his way to Corpo Plaza, Martinez saw that Tanaka and his friends were waiting for him while he was looking for the mysterious woman. They took him to a back-alley, where Tanaka beat him using a martial arts chip. Shortly after the fight, David received a call from the clinic that his mother had passed away and had to arrange a funeral for her. David, not being able to afford the other options, chose to cremate her remains at an automated service that would dispense the ashes in a metal canister. Once home, while struggling with the loss of his mother, David received a call from Katsuo mocking him and his mother's death, which pushed him over the edge. Eventually, David left his apartment and to visit Doc, and convinced him to have the Sandevistan implanted into his body.[1]

After being chipped in, David—while still expelled—returned the following day to the academy, in search of a rematch with Katsuo. Utilizing his Sandevistan implant, David easily floored Katsuo with a single blow to the head and broke his nose. Once returned home, David stared at the urn holding his mother's ashes, when he received a call from the academy's principal. The principal told David that his expulsion had been formally processed, but before the principal could end his sentence, David ended the conversation.[8]

The next morning, making his way to the academy, he noticed that the mysterious girl was aboard the NCART train, stealing shards from unsuspecting corporate employees on their way to City Center. The woman attempted to also take David's shards but was quickly intercepted by David utilizing his implant. He grasped her arm, which she shrugged off and instead took him with her to the end of the cart, and interrogated David on why he was messing with her “job”. After a short discussion, the two came to an agreement to work together, Lucy taking on David as her trainee, and split their earnings seventy-to-thirty.[8]

After a short confrontation with an ambulance worker who wanted to steal David's Sandevistan to sell on the black market, David stays the night at Lucy's apartment, where she tells him her dream of leaving Night City to live on the moon and shares a braindance with him. The two bond during this experience, but while David is asleep Lucy calls her team of mercs to her apartment. Maine, Dorio, and Pilar arrive and confront David about the stolen Sandevistan, which Gloria had originally planned to sell to Maine. After David reveals that Gloria had died, and demonstrates an extreme tolerance for cyberware, he's given a chance to join their group, on the condition that he proves himself in a small-scale data heist.

Although David's initiation heist goes not as intended, Maine welcomes him to the crew. Maine becomes David's new idol. David also makes the acquaintance of a fixer, Faraday. David integrates into the crew fairly well. Eventually, the team encounters a cyberpsycho after a job, who Pilar taunts. The cyberpsycho kills him, and David and the others step into action to eliminate the threat, with David managing to protect Lucy before being saved himself by Maine.[9]

The crew is back on track with Faraday's job and is looking for ways to get to their target, Tanaka, the Arasaka corpo. David, who sold XBDs at school, can give the right hint how Tanaka, whose great fetish are raw BDs from Master editor Jimmy Kurosaki, could be lured into a trap. It is implied that David and Lucy's relationship deepened, and Maine congratulates David to his newly found manhood.[10]

David, and the rest of the crew, try to kidnap Kurosaki to win him for their cause. Jimmy defended himself and kidnaps David instead. He then tortures David with number 32 of the Edgerunners BD series, which features Lt. Norris, by editing David into the role of Norris. David receives help from Dorio and Lucy, and Jimmy also gives in after a short fight, and does what they ask of him. Before Tanaka arrives, David has a quiet moment with Jimmy, who warns him about installing too much chrome into his body, but David argues with his special tolerance and ignores it. David then is witness of Tanaka's fight with Maine and Jimmy Kurosaki's death, caused by Tanaka's self-defense.[10]

Falco joined up with Maine's crew during this time.

Maine's and Dorio's Deaths[]

After Tanaka's abduction, Maine would begin to experience mental issues due to his overreliance on cyberware. Dorio would implore Maine to downgrade in order to improve his condition, but Maine was in denial of the situation and refused to consider it. Maine's personality would degrade and he would experience his first episode of cyberspychosis, during which he would attack Kiwi, removing her cyberware jaw before becoming lucid again.

Dorio summoned Lucy and David to discuss Maine's deteriorating condition and his risk of cyberpsychosis. David spoke with Maine privately. Maine was uncharacteristically abusive.

David would return to Lucy's side to guard her during her deep dive into Tanaka's brain. Lucy would uncover her normally carefully hidden deep dive port. David would inquire about it, but quickly drop the subject, taking Lucy's silence for discomfort.

After being injected with several drugs, Maine would become Lucid again. Dorio and Maine returned to David and Lucy's side, just in time to witness Tanaka flatlining. The jammer for Maine's crew was also fried at the same time, forcing Maine's crew to react as trauma team was incoming. Dorio would sever Lucy's connection to the deep dive. David would pull Lucy's unconscious body from her deep dive ice bath and flee with Lucy's unconscious body to a downstairs car, while Maine took Tanaka's resurrected body for use as a meat shield during the incoming confrontation. Dorio would remain at Maine's side.

Maine and Dorio would stand back to back and confront a combination of the NCPD and Trauma Team. However as the fighting continued, Maine would break down into full cyberpsychosis, losing full touch with reality, and finally turning on Dorio and killing her with a gun during a full blown episode.

Lucy would quickly regain consciousness, and beg David to flee with her, but David chose to return to Maine in an attempt to save him.

Maine entered another period of lucidity and understand he was at fault for Dorio's death but proceeded to kill more members of the NCPD and trauma team. David returned to Maine's side after securing Lucy, but Maine sent David away despite his protests. Maine constructed a pyre of sorts for Dorio out of explosive canisters. Maine was finally killed along with several Maxtac officers after Maine detonated the canisters, with David using the Sandevistan to escape the blast at Maine's final request.

David returned to Lucy's car with one of Maine's arms, offering him something to bury, as well as the opportunity to inherit Maine's cyberware within his arms.

Despite Maine's descent into cyberpyschosis, Maine's would be the inspiration behind how David would live out the rest of his life. David would then go on to try and embody both Maine's cyberware physique as well as all his values.

David's Rise[]

Several months after the death of Maine, David had taken over leadership of Maine's crew. His new cyberware-enhanced body was enlarged and had added many implants similar to Maine's, including the Gorilla Arms and the Projectile Launch System. His demeanor had also grown noticeably calmer compared to when he first joined the crew.

David's crew took a job for Wakako Okada, rescuing hostages from the Maelstrom gang. At Wakako's request, David brought along a new recruit named Julio. Julio possessed an overly excitable personality, and openly admitted to being a fan of David's work. David would provide the new recruit with a superior weapon to the one he had. David also counseled the new recruit not to rush, and to remain behind him at all times. Despite being a fan, the new recruit ignored David's advice, and got himself killed by running into an explosive trap. However, the operation was ultimately completely, with all hostages being rescued.

David would call Wakako to apologize about Julio's death, but Wakako chose not to charge anything, citing Julio's lack of experience.[11]

Lucy would not be present for this job, having withdrawn from David's crew, despite taking up residence with David. [2]

During a visit to Doc's, Doc noted David's unique biology, comparing his extensively modifed body to that of infamous figure Adam Smasher. As David never heard of him, Doc offered him Adam Smasher's backstory, and warned that he could become "Adam Smasher 2.0," which David disagreed with.[2]

Kiwi got in touch with David to set up an appointment with Faraday at the Afterlife club.[2]

At Lucy's request, David would go on a trip with Lucy just outside Night City. Lucy finally divulged her past. Recruited at a very young age by Arasaka, Lucy had been part of a group of young netrunners tasked with searching the old net. The old net had many dangerous AI, and the experience that would prove lethal for many of the young netrunners. The remaining netrunners understood that continued deep dives meant death for all of them, so the young netrunners banded together to escape Arasaka. Lucy ended up as the only survivor, eventually waking up in a junkyard and traveling all the way to Night City.[2]

Tragedy and Concerns from David's Crew[]

During a job, David would kill a secretary, one who reminded him of his mother, leaving him regretful and beginning David's loss of self.

David froze up during his next job, still reliving the death of the civilian. Rebecca intervened to keep David alive. Rebecca expressed concern for David, including a suggestion that he go light on the chrome for a while, concerned about David's mental health.

Later at David's apartment, he would collapse and be taken to Doc's clinic. Doc would suggest a downgrade, causing rage in the chromed-out and emotionally destabilized David. Frustrated with both his personal circumstances and Doc's long history of financial abuse, David lashed out at Doc. David then collected himself and immediately apologized. Doc resentfully offered David the drugs he was seeking instead. Doc explained to David that he was now on a guaranteed path to cyberpsychosis, and ultimately death, with the drugs only offering a temporary reprieve.

Lucy confronted David about his overuse of cyberware. David again refused to downgrade but would also admit to Lucy about the civilian casualty as well as concerns over his own mental health. David would implore Lucy to come back to his crew, which Lucy would refuse. David then suggested a peaceful break up to their relationship, deeply upsetting Lucy, as this was not something she was seeking. Lucy would beg David to wait for her. Lucy would continue fighting against Arasaka to protect him, something that she would continue to keep private.

Faraday's Trap and David's Revenge[]

Unbeknownst to David, Faraday abducted Lucy before sending him on his next job. Faraday tasked David with retrieving inventory from an Arasaka convoy, part of Faraday's plan to set a trap for David and earn the recognition of his new superiors at Arasaka. Prior to beginning the job, Rebecca would take note of David's deteriorating state and overreliance on immunoblocker medication.

David used a combination of his Sandevistan abilities and the harpoon on his crew's truck to stop the convoys truck and seize the goods inside.

Militech arrived with a massive armada of vehicles, including a Basilisk and a Missile carrier. They had been tipped off about the cyberskeleton, which was being used as bait for them as an intentional ploy to lure David into equipping the into allowing Arasaka to conduct a field test to obtain valuable data.

Faraday would use the Lucy to fake a call from her, encouraging David to don the prototype cyberskeleton. She managed to escaped Faraday's trap and contact David, but was too late to stop him from donning the cyberskeleton. Lucy informed David of all of Faraday's plans before being knocked out again. With his foot on her neck, Faraday taunted David with his actions, sending the latter into a vengeful rage.

At this time, Kiwi knocked out Falco and escaped without interference from Militech, making her betrayal apparent to David's crew.

Using the cyberskeleton, David managed to dispatch the entire Militech force with ease. He directed his crew to Arasako tower as part of his plan to rescue Lucy, before briefly passing out and counted on his remaining crew members Falco and Rebecca to deal with another Militech convoy as well as Arasaka forces. David soon awoke and destroyed the Arasaka forces with the cyberskeleton, though this took a greater toll on his sanity.

Arriving by shuttle at Arasaka tower, Faraday would meet with Douglas, who would express displeasure at the events unfolding, as the cyberpsychotic David had caused unpredicted damage to Arasaka. As they argued, David arrived at the tower, and used the anti-grav weapons of the cyberskeleton to cripple Faraday under his own weight. David was about to kill Douglas when Adam Smasher intervened, resulting in a brief fight between the two solos.

Final Battle and Fate[]

David managed to flee Arasaka Tower with Lucy, killing Faraday in the process while Smasher continued to pursue them. David continued to slip in and out of sanity until Lucy kissed him, causing David to briefly return to his senses and her his desire to see her escape their circumstances, and realize her dream of making it to the Moon. Lucy expresses her sadness at their circumstances, with the couple being aware that David would not survive.

David and Lucy would descend to the bottom of Arasaka Tower and reunite briefly with Falco and Rebecca. David would speak privately with Falco and implore him to see to Lucy's safety. The team was interrupted by Smasher, who crushed Rebecca and knocked Falco to the side, before resumeing his battle with David. David managed to distract Smasher long enough for Falco and Lucy to escape. Smasher directed all his attention at David, ripping his cyberskeleton apart with simple brute strength. Before dealing the final blow, Smasher pondered that David could make an interesting construct, a comment that David dismissed. David would be executed with a shot to the head by Smasher, content in knowing that Lucy would be able to fufill her dream.

Legacy[]

Lucy would fulfill her dream of making it to the moon, while seeing a vision of David similar to their first braindance experience together.

In 2077, V would find the BD of Lt. James Norris, with an addendum warning that the BD was a "cautionary tale" that David did not heed. After watching, V would then contact Muamar Reyes, wishing to know more about David. 24 hours later, Falco would contact V via text, and talked briefly of his experiences with David and his crew, also noting that David and V share similarities. He then informed V to visit Muamar, as Falco had a left a package with Muamar, the package being David's own jacket.
