According to the novel and film in which he appears, David ‘Noodles’ Aaronson is born in the early 1900s into poverty in a Jewish enclave in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
Despite being the main protagonist of the film, David “Noodles” Aaronson is a great example of a tragic villain protagonist. He is a violent, ruthless gangster who steals, robs, and murders as a livelihood. He even commits rape at one point in the film, though he quickly feels remorse and guilt for it.
