FLINT endows DB with the characteristics of the "blond beast": <He was five feet ten inches in height, of a very erect, clean limbed, and athletic form -- admirably fitted in structure, muscle, temperament, and habit, for the endurance of the labors, changes, and suffereings he underwent. He had what phrenologists would have considered a model head -- with forehead peculiarly high, noble, and bold -- thin and compressed lips -- a mild, clear, blue eye -- a large and prominent chin, and a general expression of countenance in which fearlessness and courage sat enthroned, and which told the beholder at a glance, what he had been, and was formed to be> (Flint, FIRST WHITE MAN OF THE WEST:249-50)
