Batwing Vol 1 4 Textless

A young David Zavimbe

A child soldier with his brother Isaac, David was trained from a very early age in the ways of war. Taking up a gun and receiving additional training from the Army of Dawn, they soon proved themselves the most prominent soldiers the Army had to offer. General Keita saw the promise the children posed, despite their unwillingness to execute women or children, and dubbed them the Dragonflies. When the General attacked Isaac and threw him off a cliff, David struck out against the Army and survived out of an orphanage under the tutelage of Matu Ba and Rene Diallo.
