"No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself."
Designed to be a bodyguard, Gareth was originally assigned to Berkana, at the time a research trying to cure the so-called Maverick Virus. While at her side, he made the most dangerous mistake a bodyguard can, falling in love with her. There was a time when he would have followed her to Hell and back, but when she chose to side with Gate she crossed a line even he wouldn't. Months of resentment and therapy followed, and Gareth emerged from it a changed man, dedicated to protecting the innocent, but cold and laconic, putting his emotions aside in the line of duty, fearful perhaps of getting too close to another. Anger towards Gate and Berkana have darkened his outlook on life, and he's a pessimist, resentful and sometimes paranoid of others.
