Davis is the leader of that season's DigiDestined and its lead Goggle Boy, and is partnered to Veemon.

In the TWA fics, Davis is one of the major characters. Davis is part of the Honor Fighting Force and is a member of Team Furious.
Davis is a young man with tanned skin, frizzy burgundy hair, and dark brown eyes. He usually wears a black bomber jacket over a white shirt, black pants and brown shoes, He also had a white goggles around his neck.
Davis is loud and abrasive, and has a penchant for getting in trouble. However, for all his bluster, Davis is a deeply caring and loving person who is extremely loyal to his friends. He is a firm believer in second chances, willing to extend a hand in friendship to the worst of enemies should they accept it. He refuses to give up even when all seems lost, and his infectious optimism and determination are the reasons the new DigiDestined call Davis their leader.
Davis exemplifies his Digi-Eggs well. Although he often rushes into things impulsively and makes mistakes, his courage in the face of outstanding odds cannot be denied. No matter how dire the situation, he always believes that they can somehow make it through. Early on, he claims not to know what friendship is, but his later dedication to helping his friends and reaching out to Ken prove that he is truly the one worthy of the Digi-Egg of Friendship.
Davis has a crush on Kari Kamiya, and often tries to impress her without success. For a while, he clashes with Takeru "T.K." Takaishi because of this, as he is jealous of T.K.'s familiarity with Kari and considers him a rival for her affections. Davis often calls T.K. by the wrong name—in the Japanese version, Davis always calls T.K. by his proper name, but when he first meets T.K., he addresses him as omae, a very rude way to call someone 'you' in Japanese. As time goes by, the two boys grow to respect one another, and obvious signs of Davis liking Kari starts to fade, possibly because he is maturing as a leader and a friend and keeping his feelings to himself.
Davis grew up becoming a nobody and a total loser. He later embraced being a loser and used as strength to move on forward. Like Takeru, he’s shown himself to be very, very good at punching people’s buttons in ways that let him take brutal advantage of them.
Davis is yet to demonstrate his true strength and skills.
