David Goldfarb (b.c.1919) was a British radar technician. His immediate family fled from the Jewish pogroms in Poland before World War I. His aptitude for electronics landed him in a radar station during the World War II, where he served during and after the Battle of Britain. Just prior to the Race's invasion in May 1942, Goldfarb spotted a "pixie" on his radar, a object going at incredible speed (a killercraft). During the ensuing war between the Lizards and Humans, Goldfarb aided experiments in airborne radars and jet fighters, rescued his cousin Moishe Russie from imprisonment in Lizard-held Poland, and took part in defeating the Lizard's invasion of Britain in 1943.
During the post-1944 peace, Britain grew increasingly pro-Nazi, with Oswald Mosley and the British Union of Fascists making life ever more difficult for Jews. Despite managing a posting for himself in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Goldfarb found himself exploited by his former comrade Basil Roundbush, who forced him to undertake ginger smuggling through Marseilles in Occupied France. Goldfarb was arrested by Nazi authorities but Fleetlord Atvar, urged by Russie, intervened to save his life. After that experience Goldfarb, with the help of his wartime friends Jerome Jones and George Bagnall, resigned from the RAF and resettled his family in Canada. There he used his knowledge of electronics to reproduce some of the Race's technology and create his own inventions: caller ID and the Furry.
