Dmitri the Second got his name from David's belief that he was a reincarnation of his beloved dog as Daniel. Indeed he was, and a gift to David from the spirit of Nathaniel Ley.

Dmitri was brought over to Beak's End by Philip and Angela Sykes who found him hanging around the gate to Beak's End while David was finishing Oblivion's European tour.

Dmitri is a cherished member of the Pierson family and a fixture at Beak's End.

Dmitri will play a major role in a chapter of Volume Three, Living Timekeepers.
