Darkest Before the Dawn
"No one's slick as Gaston. No one's quick as Gaston. No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston's. For there's no man in town half as manly. Perfect, a pure paragon."
Gaston is “roughly the size of a barge.” Although he is only 6’2", Gaston always has a way of appearing taller than his opponent. His arms are larger than most tree trunks, and his hands are the size of bear claws (the animal appendage; not the pastry). When Gaston walks into a room, he always walks through the doorframe sideways… to make sure his enormous body does not get stuck in the grame.
Besides his absurd size, Gaston is graced with boyish good looks. His hair might as well be the finest silk in all of the former empire. His astonishing good looks are marred by a single, small scar over his right eyebrow. Most people assume the scar is from a pit fight… yet,no one can recall when he was ever struck …. Gaston never talks about the scar.
It’s unclear if Gaston owns anything that doesn’t show off his impressive physique. His shirts, jackets, and even body armor always showcase his massive arms and rippled abs.
Nevertheless, Gaston is not a pure paragon. His intellect is… well… subpar. He can’t count to twenty without taking off his shoes and socks. And, he knows nothing beyond working-out, fighting, hunting, and chasing women. The only reason why he knows elvish is… to pick up attractive elvish women.
Ever since Gaston’s stunning debut in the world of pit fighting, Gaston has become a household name. He is the more celebrated pit fighter since the fights began long ago. He was never defeated in the pit, except for that “one time he totally let that guy win.”
However, curiously, no one seems to know anything about his life before pit fighting. And, Gaston, efuses to talk about it. On good days, Gaston will laugh heartily and reply with a twinkle in his eyes: “Well, wouldn’t you like to know?”… On bad days, the person ends up drinking dinner through a straw.
