Dafydd is a standard Noldorin elf. He is tall, lean, and has long, dark brown (bordering on black) hair and deep grey eyes. Somewhat curiously for fanfiction depictions of his people, his ears are not significantly pointed – they closer approximate the 'leaf shape' Tolkien described. This is believed to be because his purpose in the story was not to be known as an elf until he revealed himself. He made use of this fact to hide his identity from his partner for a long time.
Following his final mission, Dafydd's right arm ends in a stump – his hand was burnt off. Sometimes he forgets this fact.
Dafydd can best be described as 'fey'. Derived from the mildest and most stable son of Fëanor, he is nevertheless erratic and prone to overreaction. He has been known to advocate firebombing entire Word Worlds to deal with Mary Sues, was expelled from the Department of Mary Sues for overusing fire, and is particularly susceptible to Sue-tainted artefacts. His favourite weapons prior to his departure from the PPC were the longbow – which he can no longer use – and a Sue artefact known as the Ring of Sairalindë.
In the story from which he came, Dafydd was in fact an evil version of Maglor, the son of Fëanor. Due to a badly phrased sentence, he found himself stuck in a plothole while a nicer version of Maglor took his place in the story. He was rescued and recruited by Agents Mortic Wentway and Alex Orange. This took place in 1999 HST.
Following his recruitment, Dafydd was placed in the Department of Mary Sues, and partnered with Agent Jared Calinson. He was peripherally involved in the events of the Reorganisation, but otherwise his career was uneventful until 2004. At the beginning of this year he was overenthusiastic in his persecution of a Mary Sue, burning down a large portion of Rivendell. He was dismissed from the DMS.
A chance encounter with the Sunflower Official's secretary of the time, the Bonsai Mallorn, led Agent Dafydd to establish the Department of Geographical Aberrations, in which he would be actively encouraged to do the very thing he had just been punished for. He undertook many missions during the next two years, but in May 2006 was killed when he used the Ring of Sairalindë against Slut!Celebrían but could not control it.
Agent Constance Sims managed to return Dafydd to life, and the two agents successfully appealed to the Board of Department Heads for leave to retire from the PPC. With spectacular timing, they left mere days before the events of Crashing Down, and returned shortly after the crisis to hold their engagement party. Sometime prior to 2008 HST, he acquired a bronze fire-lizard, Ilwion.
Dafydd and Constance have five children, most of whom will become involved with the PPC in some way.
