DMA does not usually participate in political discussions, but he is known to be vociferously anti-Bush and -Howard, and broadly in favour of an Australian republic.
In AH.com The Series, DMA is theoretically a member of the AH.com Ship's security team, but in practice fills a variety of roles. He briefly left the ship to coincide with a period when the real life DMA was ill, but soon returned. His character is also a former first officer of the CTT.net Ship.
In Luaky Commer, DMA fills in the Hagrid role, and acts in an extremely stereotypical-Australian fashion.
