Like most on the Border, Garrett grew up with a gun in his hand. Critters were always a problem, and when it wasn't critters it was bandits, and when it wasn't bandits it was Alliance.

Garrett was happiest when he was hunting, had the patience for sitting around waiting and a knack for finding his targets. He wasn't good at much else, so when the recruiter came calling for the Browncoats he joined up. The army took those skills and honed them. Before long he was earning a reputation as a sniper, able to anticipate when targets were approaching and where, and take them out when they were barely in range.

And then it went wrong, as these things always do. What everyone assumed was good eyes and good instincts was actually latent reader talents and the war cracked them wide open.

Garrett doesn't remember what happened. He woke up in the hospital with no idea how he got there. Things were bad for a while, his mind too bruised to cope with the new input it was getting. He was still there when the war ended.

In that first mad scramble after the surrender he was evacuated along with the rest of the walking wounded. He was given into the care of Shepherd Morgan Chen who took Garrett to a monastery where he recovered some, his mind no longer bombarded by the fear and pain of the wounded.

Since then Garrett's taken to wandering, trying like many Browncoats to find a place in a 'verse that no longer seems to fit right.

Important Folk[edit]

Gramps - Garrett's so-far unnamed grandfather, who taught him to hunt and shoot, and the most important lesson of all - "never take a shot angry. You can't take it back". Killed in a hunting accident by an Alliance trophy hunter just as the war was starting, which prompted Garrett to join the Browncoats.

Katie - Garrett's spotter during the war. She was brought to the hospital while Garrett was there, burned over most of her body, and died of her injuries.

Morgan Chen - the Shepherd who took Garrett in after the evacuation, believing him to be suffering from PTSD. He taught Garrett techniques to calm himself and avoid being overwhelmed.
