Yes with front suspension all you need is a stiff frame to hang it on. It's not a road bike where frame geometry and construction can contribute to the character of a bike.

Many brands "share" frames which would be made by one factory so you might never know who put their decals on it unless there are other identifying marks.
Somebody might recognize those particular group of components though.

I'm not sure what make it is but it's well worth what you paid it's got some nice components for sure.
Time to hit the road and see what fun you can have. Other than that all it need's is a bit of bling and you've got a great bike ;)

My initial thought is DMR but I'm not sure why.
However it could be a generic Taiwan catalogue bike, which could have been branded by various companies, or even bough direct.
I initially thought DMR too for some reason, but the tubing is all wrong.

I think my Virtue is closer to a DMR dirt jump bike than that.

The problem is, the frame could quite easily be from a 15+ year time period, as dirt jump bikes never really changed much from early 2000's to fairly recently.

I'd say the best bet for finding out what it is, short of anybody being able to ID the frame, is try matching the rear mech hanger to some of the various suppliers
