Where Garry is from is something even he wishes he knew. Instead, Garry just likes... wonder. He years of experience in survival and just over-all bad luck has not shaken his resolve to keep on living. He enjoys keeping a positive attitude. Every person he has had bad run-ins with, he politely asks them to stand down. He doesn't like violence. He wants to help people but people don't seem to want his help. It's their loss really. Garry will keep on smiling and keep on moving about. "Pessimism is the death of humanity!" as he often says. Always smile around him. It's the best way to thank him.
Garry's last camp was a small village in... not sure where. The infected had broken down the walls and were attacking the people inside. Garry took it upon himself to give the small town folk a helping hand. He assisted in killing the infected and went to meet the leaders of the town. Turns out, their "leader" was a dictator and a serious control freak. People were not happy with him. This would not do for Garry. So he shot and killed their cruel heartless leader and those who supported him. All he asked for in return was, "... a smile..." but instead, he was demanded to leave and had weapons pointing have him. Out numbered and out gunned, he left, disappointed but not deterred. He moved on to the next town where he heard from traders of a city called Nyheim!
Nyheim sounded promising. Maybe plenty of people in this new city... will be positive and uplifting. After-all, "Pessimism is the death of humanity!"
