Gavin is currently in a serious relationship with Alison. He has accepted that she is the love of his life and though he would like to marry her he knows that is not something Alison desires,. In truth, he feels that being married is simply a document which does not have any baring on their love for each other.
Gavin dated Katrina while in high school but after they graduated he broke it off as he realized they didn't want the same things out of life. It was a messy breakup which just confirmed what Gavin knew, that the relationship was toxic for him.
Gavin was born on a private ship owned by his father and two of his uncles. His birthdate is August 2, 3534. Gavin, along with Joel were trained by their father at an early age to help on the ship where ever it was needed. There family business was to relieve freighters and anyone they could of their valuables to make a living. His mother and younger sister lived on a planet in the outer rim, where they would stop and visit when they weren't looting.
Joel and Gavin didn't think much about what they were doing, whether it was right or wrong, it was the way they made their living. It was during this time that Gavin started having a fascination with knives and weapons. He wanted to be able to defend himself as there were many close calls.
Gavin's parents loved each other but they were famous for their fighting. it was when Gavin was in his early teens that his mother refused to allow him and Joel to go out with them anymore. She had started her own restaurant and wanted them to have a normal life. Gavin's parents agreed that he and Joel would stay home and that their father would make this his final run. When their father left, it was the last time Gavin saw him. Finally the news came back that his father, uncles and all on board had been found brutally murdered.
Gavin became angry and got in fights. He resented his mother for a time, blaming her for the death of his father. Finally the reality set in that had he and Joel been with him, they both would more than likely be dead as well. This caused Gavin to decide that he would be the best at protecting what was his.
Delta Force Academy:
Gavin joined the academy for several reasons. He wanted to train to become the best security officer he could be, to learn to defend those around him and he wanted distance between him and his mother and sister. He still blamed her for the death of his father and he could not stomach being around his bitch of a sister. There was a piece of him, deep inside, that once thought about taking her out.
Gavin worked hard to become a good security officer. His training when he was younger helped him to work hard, train hard. He completed his training but was warned that he needed to learn to control his anger or it would cause him issues in the future.
Gavin was assigned to the DFS Hitachi in 4556. He worked hard and impressed those around him. It took him a lot of strength but he learned to control his temper and finally let go of his anger over his father's death. Gavin finally resolved it and moved on. It was while he was serving there that he met Alison and Gable. They would become fast friends, eventually, he would become romantically involved with Alison. Gavin
Gavin saw a lot of action, death and destruction during the war of 4562. He still has nightmares on occasion about their ship being attacked and having to escape with Gable and Alison and leave their people behind. It went against his loyalty but he knew it was a part of war.
Life on the Rim:
Gavin was seriously involved with Alison when she decided to leave Delta Forces and he made the decision to go with her. It was true that her being pregnant played a part in his decision but the major part was he didn't want to live without her. She was the love of his life and where she went, he would and he didn't give a damn what anyone thought of him.
Gavin believes the greatest day of his life was when their baby girl was born in 4563. He thought it was even more special that it was on Alison's home world and that her father and his wife were there as well. Gavin has a good relationship with Alison's family, with the exception of her mother. He has ever met her nor does he want to know her. Alison's explanations were good enough for him. Gavin worked along side Alison as her weapons person when she worked as a privateer.
After Gavin and Alison's friend Gable was killed, Alison kept a promise to him and returned to Delta Force. It was because of Alison's mother that he was reinstated and is currently serving as security chief on the DFS Phoenix.
