David Knox was a student at John Hathorne High School in Salem, Massachusetts, a town split between magic-using families referred to as "Wicks" and those without magical abilities, called "Blanks". Knox was a "Wick" and with "Life-Lender" powers.

Knox was approached by Francis Foley, a fellow "Wick" student with precognitive abilities who wanted him to help summoning the "fulcrum," a kind of magical savior to protect Salem from an unspecified upcoming disaster. The ritual worked but Knox's powers backfired, killing him by turning him into a mass of lizards.[1]

Foley was proven right when another student Chad Barrow turned out to be the Thief, a parasitic magical mutation draining the power from all the "Wicks" in Salem. The "fulcrum" arrived in the form of a girl Kim Vesco who moved to Salem from Chicago and discovered her own necromancy powers. Knox's ghost assisted Kim as she developed her powers and gathered other magic users in opposition to the Thief.[2]

Powers

David Knox was a "Life-Lender" with unclear abilities. He is implied to be able to animate inanimate objects but the only demonstration of his power is when they backfired and caused him to turn into a swarm of lizards.
