Well, I really thought about the other things i could tell you about Gary.... And it's kinda funny, that WereWolf39
wrote a comment which implies one of those facts I'm going to tell you now.
Before he came to Pagan in 2001, Gary actually worked fives years for the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) ... It's not known what he did there, but Pagan presumes, that he worked at the IT Area. Cuz Gary can do some crazy shit with a computer. But also he never told Pagan what happened, that he got 'fired'... well it's not fired, more like degraded and removed to another agency with a compensation... (Pagan loves calling that: 'shush money')
He worked one year at the british embassy in India, when he heard trough the grapevine, that a 'warlord' from a neighboring country 'searches' for an assistent...
Well - De Cri (De Pleur's predecessor) searched an assistent for Pagan and guess what - Gary hated working in the embassy ... so he travelled to Kyrat and ... yeah - this is how Jacob Finch came to Pagan Min. :>
another passage from my german fanfiction, that I translated for you:
The lumb in my throat grew enourmously. The feeling of pressure brought tears to my eyes. Just once a sobbing tone left my throat. There was this feeling again, which was way too much for me. This bolt in my heart, which reminded me, that I was a fucking idiot.
"Please - do not cry because of love, Sir", the Briton advised me and tried to cheer me up. Actually that was useless, but I didn't tell him.
"There isn't only one woman, You know ... take a look at me. I love every woman, I like..."
I knew that he meant well and I also knew what he REALLY ment by that. Because my highly regarded assistent had no wife or children aswell. But he maintained a lot of affiares here in Kyrat. Everytime, a high-ranking solider died, it was him who told their bereaved this. He 'took care' of the female family members and because of his behaviour and his charm he returned more than once with a suspicious smirk on this lips. Also he loved to spend his day offs at the city of pain, to have sex with prostitutes... Gary was a hedonist, a fast liver - my counterweight.
Also there are scenes between them like:
Gary: I'm very proud of You, Sir..."
Pagan - smiling: "Nobody cares, what you thinking."
Pagan: "Did I ... fired you the last monthes?"
Gary: "Oh ... no, Sir. Not since this accident with the elefants, I guess..."
You see, their relationship is ... kinda funny. More like a friendship with much respect.
Like Pagan and De Pleurs relationship ...
