In 1751, young David travels to Shaws after the death of his father. His uncle, Ebenezer, tries to kill him because  David is the rightful heir to the estate. The attempt fails but then Ebenezer pays a sea captain named Hoseason to  kidnap him and take him to the Americas to be sold as a slave. The ship hits a boat carrying Alan Breck Stewart,  who the crew plan to murder for his money, and David sides with the stranger. The pair fight off an attack by the  crew and the ship wrecks on the shore of the Isle of Mull. David escapes the wreck and travels across Scotland with Alan to get justice against his evil uncle.

David is young and loyal, often naive but sometimes shrewd. Despite having a different political view with Alan, he  admires the Highlander greatly and relies upon his friendship, even moreso when he falls ill. Alan trains David to use a sword (increase Fighting to d6 at first advance) during the travels.
