Modern AU - Gavin would be an American General from Texas, who started his career just as the Vietnam War was ending. Most of his military career consisted of peacekeeping operations, defending embassies and holding territory across the globe. Charismatic and optimistic, he led men with ease, but when the gulf war started, his military training kicked in. He was known for a particularly rough operation, in which he flushed out a terrorist cell hiding among a group of civilian supporters. Not many military leaders make it into the press, but Gavin seemed to get the heat of it. Regardless, the mission was a success and he was encouraged to continue his duty. During the second Iraqi war he met and fell in love with a fellow officer, nicknamed Ace, who became his first serious relationship, although they had to keep it under the radar until legislation allowed them to come out into the open. Gavin likes country music, and folk music, and even plays the guitar a little bit. He was a jock in high school, playing football but never managing to keep his grades up very high. A complete technophone, Gavin still doesn’t have a smartphone, and seems to need to be walked through checking his e-mail every single time. He enjoys the outdoors, and was raised to be a deeply spiritual southern christian boy.
