* AllThereInTheManual: Apparently one too many missions have made him a little on edge.

* AllThereInTheManual: Apparently one too many missions have made him a little on edge. It's only revealed in promotional materials, although it's not something you could not figure from watching him.



* HydraProblem: Fifield attempts to cut off the alien snakes head when it breaks Millburns arm but not only does it spray acid blood over Fifields face for his efforts, the head ''instantly'' grows back.

* FantasticRacism: The film shows him and the other Engineers planning to take the bioweapon to Earth before he was forced to enter stasis. When he wakes up, his first actions are launching an unprovoked, violent attack on the first humans he encounters and resuming the plan to take the bioweapon to Earth. Going by this, it's likely he despises humans.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: He casually rips off an android's head with only his hands and no leverage, something which is probably not easy to do even for a tall being like him.

* DontTouchItYouIdiot: Lampshaded when David is trying to open a door and Shaw says no, they don't know what's on the other side. Cue David opening the door and saying "Oops. Sorry".

[[folder:The Deacon]]
!!The Deacon

* TheAssimilator: In the ''Fire and Stone'' comics, it's revealed that further exposure to A0-3959X.91 15 caused the Deacon to grow around the wreckage of the ''Prometheus''.
* ChestBurster: It emerges from the chest of the Engineer at the very end of the movie.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Suffice to say there's human DNA in it somewhere.
* NestedMouths: It has a goblin shark-like pharyngeal jaw.
* StarfishAlien: It was born through a complicated process involving the mutagenic material A0-3959X.91 15, and bears a distinct resemblance to the Xenomorphs, such that official material even calls it a "Proto-Xenomorph".

* AFatherToHisMen: Twice he rushes to the aid of crewmen in danger. When [[spoiler:Holloway is in serious trouble]] and when [[spoiler:Mutated!Fifield shows up]]. Also clear in light of the UndyingLoyalty of his co-pilots and friends [[spoiler:who refuse to leave his side when he's about to go down with the Prometheus.]]



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Though he stays on the ship the entire time, he cares enough about his men, along with the other members aboard his ship such as Shaw, that he tries to protect them as best as he can. [[spoiler:He also sacrifices his ship, along with his life, in order to prevent the Engineer from escaping to Earth to deploy the bioweapon they created.]]

* BreakoutCharacter: A highly acclaimed character, David now ranks as one of the greatest ''Alien'' characters among the likes of Apone, Bishop, or Ripley herself in the eyes of fans. His popularity led to him becoming [[spoiler: the only ''Prometheus'' character to be given a role in ''Covenant''.]]

* TheStoic: David is always genial, even when he's doing something ''really'' horrible. It's the reason why he loves ''Film/LawrenceOfArabia'' and emulates T.E. Lawrence. Both have SuppressedRage and are able to sublimate it with a StiffUpperLip. In other words, "The trick... is to not ''mind'' that it hurts."
