David Quick was an outlaw prince who tried to conquer the city of Lud. He led the faction that would come to be known as the Grays. He was a large man, which led to comparisons of him to Lord Perth. He was the great-grandfather of Andrew Quick.
His body was found in the cockpit of a crashed World War II plane. Quick had planned to use the plane to conquer Lud, but was unable to land it.
