HA!! Great idea!
To be honest, Sorkin's assistant was intended to be featured in the game more than he was, but never as part of some subplot we intended to develop further.
In the first episode, he was mostly there so that Sorkin wouldn't sound like a kook talking to herself the entire time.
In the original back story (Which may have changed at some point), David was helping Sorkin raise and study the Troodon in the unused Quarantine pens, until Hammond started decided to use them for a second group of Raptors, causing Sorkin and David to attempt to move the Troodon in secret, but several ended up escaping in the process.
It's true that we ended up sacrificing the David model so that we could ultimately include more dinosaurs (Namely the Herrerasaurus), and since Mr. Backs had such a small part, his sacrifice (Both in the game and behind the scenes of Game production) was totally worth it.
