Upright, confident, mildly reckless yet Steadfast; Gary McLaine stands before you.
Gary McLaine was a British citizen born a southerner in the Town of Worthing, he was raised through a relatively stable family with a good financial position. Despite of this; Gary was not treated with as much care as his Brothers and Sisters. At a young age, he was sent to Boarding School and spent a lot of his youth away from his family, this de-sensitised him emotionally which caused him to rarely become attached to others. Due to his lack of emotions, he decided to sign up for the Royal Navy Auxiliary as soon as he left School at the age of 16. At that point, Gary found himself on the RFA Bayleaf Tanker (A109) assisting the crew with deploying supplies to places around Gibraltar, including the Ascension Island during his service in the Falklands War.
Upon returning home, he was welcomed home with open arms by his family, he appeared to be closer with his siblings rather than his parents however, whom did not seem as interested as his brothers and sisters were to his return. Throughout the years of serving in and out of the RNA it was obvious that Gary's social life was always a challenge, his love life too was tougher considering the amount of time he had away from home. He eventually however did manage to settle down with a wife, Jane, and two sons to which he fathered dearly, although he was a bit rough around the edges with them; Gary raised his kids to become strong and independent.
Gary lost his wife to an unfortunate case of Maternal Mortality, she passed away giving birth to his second son. Luckily he managed to pull through only just by harnessing the dullness of emotions he had obtained from his passed. Although with what he went through beforehand regardless, the impact of her death changed Gary forever. He tries to be open-minded and welcoming but to those who know him deep down; Mr McLaine is a broken man.
After following a career in Cruiselines and obtaining the rank of Second Officer; Gary decided during his time at home from work to take his sons Ryan and Marcus on numerous holidays as they always enjoyed to travel. The family ventured throughout certain states of the USA, multiple countries of the EU and multiple Eastern Regions, Kingdoms etc. Little did they know, however, that Chernarus was to be their final destination. Separated from his two sons, now young adults; Gary ventures the roads for himself in search for them along with the brother who accompanied him.
