He is described as being a "real cool cat" who lives in Hunger City. Some of this is inspired by the novel: 1984 by George Orwell.
He has a very similar appearance to the other personas Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane - all three had shaved eyebrows and a red mullet haircut. David appeared as this persona in the Diamond Dogs recording sessions and early 1974 interviews, before changing into the more Soul Man-ish appearance for the tour and rest of the year.
