History

Dave was a fairly ordinary orangutan living in the care of one Billy Smairt until he was unexpectedly elected Mayor of Mega-City One. He was probably the most popular politician the city had ever seen, but this did not ultimately save him from being assassinated. The culprit was Mo Molinsky, the barman at his owner Billy Smairt's favourite bar. Billy had a life insurance policy made out to Mo that would pay him a million creds if he died. Mo had Billy killed (Dave was collateral damage), not knowing that Billy had only made one payment on the life insurance policy so it had lapsed and was totally worthless.
