Damy lives together with his childhood crush, Deirdre, who is a regular meerkat/mortal and his "girlfriend-in-denial". While he roams around the neighbourhood hunting down villagers, Deirdre tries to give him an unwanted reeducation.
While most of the comics and drawings starring him and Deirdre are comical, the background story of both characters is grim.

Damy's existence is thanks to his mortal father, Kurt, who made a deal with his capturer/Damy's mother to keep Damy after she discovered her pregancy. As intercourse with a mortal is forbidden and half-bloods are considered a disgrace by their kind, she was less than motivated. Kurt made the claim the child could make her proud as a future ruthless killer, making up for both mistakes.
While Cheekah was persuaded, she made it clear she didn't want to invest in her offspring, and surprisingly enough trusted Kurt to take care of Damy instead.
Kurt agreed, but didn't hesitate to disobey her immoral demands, and raised his son to his own liking. But even without his help, Damy was naturally good-hearted, yet very ignorant about his surroundings.
While Kurt asked Damy to "play along" whenever his mother was around, it appeared to be impossible for him; which raised anger and suspicion from Cheekah.
During most of Damy's childhood Cheekah was either gone hunting villagers, beating him up, or torturing Kurt. In Damy's first years he often tried to get attention from her, like he got from his father, but soon learnt she was best to be avoided.
Damy's father once had the opportunity to flee from the house, and considered leaving Damy behind to save himself. He got caught when trying to take him with him anyway, which didn't improve Cheekah's spirits.
Damy met Deirdre and Timon for the first time at the age of 9, during the Winter. Since it rarely snows there, Kurt allowed Damy to go outside to play for a while, while Cheekah was occupied. This was also the first time where Damy came in contact with other children, who were having a bet on who would dare to get closest to Damy's house.
As they knew who and what Damy was, they were scared at first, but noticed his docile personality and decided to tease him instead. A young Timon was part of the group, disapproved of it and accepted Damy as his friend, making Timon the first friend Damy made. Though, it didn't last long, as the other children had no intention to hang out with him and started burrying Damy alive with snow- and iceballs. As Timon became frightened by this violent act and ran away, Damy's father came outside to chase them away and rescue him. After the area was cleared out, there was still one young girl hiding behind a tree, who smiled at him. Damy, naive and ignorant, blew her gesture out of proportion and fell in love with the stranger right away.
While Damy and Deirdre's original encounter was short, but relatively sweet, their second meeting was less pleasant.
Damy came home one night after he'd been looking for her, and found his mother in the act of murdering his father, and he passed away shortly after Damy had entered the room. Damy then finally stood up to his mother, and scolded her; but Cheekah didn't appreciate his sudden bravery and became furious. She attacked him, but while she aimed for his neck, Damy was able to pull his head away and she bit off a piece of his right ear instead. Afterwards she threw him out of the house and ordered him to catch his own food.
As Damy was roaming around the forest most of the night, he became hungry, and realised he never had to hunt before. He was stuck in a moral dilemma; whether or not he should kill someone, or let himself starve either way.
He eventually came across Deirdre, who told him she knew about an old animal who had passed away, and asked him not to harm her if she took him to it. Even though Damy had no real intention of harming her to begin with, he agreed, in case he would lose it. While Deirdre had to witness the image of him feeding on a corpse, Damy's mother appeared, displeased about the fact her son didn't work for his food and was again with the same girl as before.
She wanted to kill Deirdre, but after Damy made the deal "to do anything for her" in order to spare her life, she was released from Cheekah's grip, and Deirdre ran away.
At the age of 15, Damy was considered to be fully transformed, but was also still keeping a safe eye on Deirdre, meaning he hadn't lost his sense of good just yet. After years of hard work and horrible experiences, Cheekah visited Damy on the roof of their house with confusing dribble that sounded like she wanted to give him a compliment. But before she was able to let out any decisive words, she slipped and fell off the roof. As Damy looked down, he saw his mother lying dead. Something snapped inside of him and left him standing there stuck in maniacal laughter.
While it's unlikely any vampiremeerkat could die such a simple death, Damy was convinced at the time his mother was gone. The situation left him pondering whether or not he killed her; as Cheekah tried to hold onto him when she slipped, grabbed his right ear, and in response Damy turned away, and Cheekah ironically lost her grip because of the missing ear piece.
After her death, Damy took over the house he was born in, and has been living on his own, terrorizing the neighbourhood and all nearby locations.
Damy met up with Deirdre again when he was 25, but her trauma from 16 years ago made him unrecognizable to her and their past together non-existent. At the same time, Damy never explained to her who or what he was, and only showed up to bother and bully her and Timon; who he still felt betrayed by for leaving him to die 16 years ago. While Damy had already hunted down and killed the other children from the past, he chose to follow Timon instead. Even though Timon knew the reason, he never explained it to Deirdre or apologized to Damy.
Damy had bullied Timon for quite some years, but as Deirdre kept appearing at Timon's side; Damy assumed right, and became even more furious at Timon for taking his childhood crush, and considered it "undeserved" happiness.
From that point on Damy became more bitter, and his mood towards the both of them drastically changed. One day he decided to stop playing around and take Timon captive for the purpose of torturing him.
As Deirdre and Timon had feelings for each other, she volunteered to take his place, which Damy denied at first. He then agreed after seeing Timon being upset about Deirdre's offer.
Damy brought her to his basement, where he chained her to the ceiling. While his memories of Deirdre were still burried inside his mind, his life-long training made it hard for him not to want to harm her.
Deirdre didn't talk much to Damy during her stay, but asked him the question "Why?" every day; which angered him, as the question forced his damaged mind to think about it, but was unable to process the question.
3 months later Deirdre was in a critical condition, and Damy started feeling some remorse. He moved her out of the basement and chained her to his bed; but even though she was moved there to give her more comfort, Damy still beat her, though got slightly less upset whenever she spoke or made eye contact.
After nearly 5 months in total, Damy had fully stopped torturing her, and rather started taking care of her. While he didn't reveal why; the 6th and last month he explained himself to her, by telling her about their first encounter and his past, and then asked her to leave.
Deirdre returned a few days after Damy set her free.
Even though they have a serious and troublesome past together, Damy and Deirdre became an inseparable duo in a whole different setting.
As Deirdre knows Damy doesn't like to be reminded of the past, as for the fact he tortured her, she convinced Timon to stop bringing it up and asked Damy to stop going after Timon. Damy and Deirdre's "friendship" made Damy see Timon as a serious rival, and therefore doesn't like it when Deirdre goes off to see him.
After Deirdre officially moved in with Damy, without consulting him, Cheekah reappeared. While she was the cause of all Damy's sorrow, he wasn't afraid of her or too surprised to see her again. Damy took the opportunity and tried to kill his mother for good, but both proved equally matched.
Damy's changed personality and overall successful transformation caused Cheekah to fall for her son, and she shared him her plans to marry him. While Damy refused because of obvious reasons, Cheekah believes it's because of Deirdre, and that she needs to be disposed of for Damy's own good.
Because of the circumstances he was born in, Damy never had the chance of getting a normal developement of any kind. Apparently he was born good-natured, but was kept away from the outside world and thus never able to socialize or connect with anybody but his father.
Because of this, Damy could only make his own assumptions on how a relationship should be, and it caused his obsessive hate for Timon, who he expected to protect him when he offered his friendship, and his obsessive love for Deirdre, who charmed him with just a smile.
Even though Damy has gotten a huge personality change and turned out to be very objective, as for intelligent, he still cannot let go the characters from his past; which is why his love for Deirdre stays, but a similar meeting with another girl wouldn't affect him at this day and age.
But at the same time, Cheekah doesn't scare him anymore.
Damy knows who he used to be, but said he wouldn't change himself if he could, as he "likes being bad", which reveals an important element about Damy's true nature.
Damy is a skeptic thinker who doesn't care much for anything that's generally considered "fun". If Deirdre wasn't around, he'd do nothing but kill and sleep, as he doesn't seem to have any real passions besides murder.
Together with Deirdre's coming, he developed a sarcastic sense of humor.
As his brain suffered alot of impacts, Damy doesn't just suffer from mental damage, but also physical; and isn't able to move his eyebrows from this angry/annoyed position, if he were to express any other emotion.
His pupils react to his emotion, and while they are already rather small, they get smaller whenever Damy gets angry or has a psychotic episode. At the same time, they are able to get bigger than usual whenever he feels charmed.
Even though Damy looks grumpy and has some rough features, he's considered to be rather handsome, as many females unacquainted with Damy tend to approach him. While it would make Damy's hunting easier; he doesn't use his looks to gain trust and stealth kill his (female) victims.
Damy has long, wavy black hair in a ponytail, big eyebrows, small pupils, a big pointy nose, furry cheeks, and misses a piece from his right ear.
He has a pattern of conjoined stripes on his back.
Compared to full-blood vampiremeerkats, he looks rather average.
What started off rough, continued skeptic, and ended up becoming a crippled, comical friendship with hints of love. While the outside world assumes they are a couple, Damy denies all claims, yet has never been able to explain why Deirdre is living with him at all. Meanwhile, Deirdre does call Damy her "friend".
After Damy released Deirdre, she started visiting him on a daily basis and slowly ended up living in his house and sleeping in his bed, without him really noticing.
Even though he threw her out and shut the door on her many times, Deirdre managed to permanently enter his home and life; and basically functions as the little angel that never leaves his shoulder. Though, he doesn't care for her complaints, and often gives her a "friendly beating" if she becomes too annoying.
Because Deirdre believes he is unhappy and acts like a grumpy old man, she constantly tries to involve him with the outside world and invites him to parties and other social events. He automatically rejects all invitations.
While he always says Deirdre isn't his (girl)friend, his feelings for her stayed the same over the years. Whether it's because of his training or the guilt from torturing her; he is far from motivated in telling Deirdre his feelings or giving a positive response to her hugs and attention.
While Damy doesn't accept her going out with any other men, he doesn't find himself worthy to be with her either.
Even so, he functions as her loyal guard dog, and saved her life multiple times over the course of time.
Timon was officially Damy's first and only childhood friend, though, it only lasted for 10 seconds.
Because Timon didn't help him when he was being attacked by the neighbourhood children, Damy felt betrayed. After many years, he still bears a grudge against him.
Even though Damy ended up with Deirdre by his side, he still sees Timon as a threat and rather not have Deirdre speak to him ever again. As Deirdre asked Damy to stop going after Timon, Damy doesn't want her to mention Timon around him in return.
While Damy used to fear Cheekah as a child, he now shows no emotion when in contact with his mother.
Damy acknowledged that they are equally matched, and stopped battling her every time she shows up. This change of reaction gave Cheekah the opportunity to change her approach as well; and instead tries to talk him into marrying her. Or just sexually harasses him, resulting into a fight, anyway.
Even so, Cheekah's growing fascination for Damy makes her less motivated to fight him and more submissive to him. She accepts all hits with a smile, and Damy is the only person she ever allowed to be dominant over her. Considering it doesn't match her personality, it is likely her love for him is real.
Damy is disgusted by his mother, for good reasons, but doesn't want to bother too much with her anymore, as he knows she stopped being a real threat.
Kurt used to be Damy's only friend and helping hand during his childhood. As it appeared that Damy's good spirit wasn't hard to break by Cheekah, Kurt was keeping him together and mentally healthy the first years of his life.
He often had to convince Damy he was normal and not unwanted, as he was having his doubts when he became older and more observant. Kurt never told him about the deal he made with Cheekah or about Cheekah's plans.
While Damy desires no contact with them; Kurt's family always stayed safe from his killing sprees.
While there were multiple endings written for the story of Damy and Deirdre, only one of the endings is considered to be "canon":
After being tormented by Damy for too long, the villagers decide to bond together with nearby residents to kill him. More specifically; they capture Deirdre with the intent that Damy would surrender himself to them.
In case Damy wouldn't cooperate, they were ready to dispose of Deirdre as well.
While Damy managed to release her from her imprisoned state, there was no time to fight and he had to run from over 20.000 meerkats armed with bows and spears in order to protect Deirdre.
As the whole forest was infested and booby trapped, it didn't take long for Damy to recieve hits. The continuous attack didn't give him the opportunity to heal himself, and eventually he collapsed in a hidden area in the forest. Damy and Deirdre had a short exchange where he told her it was bound to happen, as he was the villain, and she shouldn't waste her tears on him. But Deirdre claimed that bad guys never got caught in reality, and therefore his death was unfair.
While Deirdre tried to save him with his own saliva, he died anyway. Shortly afterwards the villagers found them, but after seeing Damy's corpse, they were no longer interested in continuing their pursuit and left Deirdre with her thoughts.
Both Damy and Deirdre still never revealed their feelings for each other.
