The aging man, 29 being quite old in the eyes of most enlisted men and women, has a determined look on his face, no matter the situation. Even though he's quick to smile, one almost expects a frown at any moment. Gars is a robust character at first glance, with a firm handshake and a dark side hinted in his eyes. A scar runs down his mouth across his right cheak. Wearing Marine fatigues and the stripes of a Corporal ( formerly Staff Sergeant ), Gars certainly looks the part of a veteran.

Left shoulder; old Fort Leotychides branding ( a fierce flaming lion ), Text= Never Falter.
