Place of birth: Southern France
Weight: 215 lbs
Tall, thin. Dark personality and brooding expression, he looks like a movie vampire in the right lighting.
Little is known of his past except for a few bits he told Liam and Kharzai. His parents are dead. He went to public school in France until he joined the military at the age of seventeen. He prefer Cognac over wine and likes attractive yet timid women.
Legion Etranger, Le Regiment Deuxieme Parachutiste (French Foreign Legion, 2nd Parachute Regiment) 1993-2003.
Gilles served in the Legion for ten years and attained the rank of Sergeant Chef (Chief Sergeant). He is known to have seen action in Somalia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Kosovo, Cote D’Ivoire. He left the Legion and signed on with a mercenary firm based in South Africa but quite midway into his first assignment due to an argument over the treatment of a prisoner. He wanted to kill the man, but his boss would not let him. He became a free lancer and was introduced to Kharzai through a third party contact.
Gilles has a naturally intimidating personality. He is quiet and tends to stand in the shadows. He is also a ruthless killer. Kharzai and Liam have a contest between them to be the first one to see him smile. In six months neither has seen it happen.
He has been hired as an extra gun by Kharzai and Liam in Iran.

Until about mid-summer of last year I worked out a lot. I had a full time day job, a part time job as a youth minister of my church, and spent about two hours every day in the gym on top of that. I also had the energy to write and podcast three novels and a set of short stories during that period. I seldom slept more than six hours and was always doing something. I have run that hard since I was a teen and never felt a need for a break.
Then all of a sudden I got tired. I mean really tired. Tired like I have never been before. Not only was 4-6 hours of sleep not enough, no matter how much I got I could not get rested. My work suffered, my writing faltered. I transferred my ministry job to a younger leader, thinking that maybe it was just that I'm over forty now and need to quite hanging out with teens and college kids. ...no change.
I got so tired that I fell down a mountain and got badly hurt while skiing. That made it worse.
Now, six months after shoulder surgery I am still not fully recovered and still just plain exhausted.
Until last weekend. I figured something else must be wrong so I went to a local accupunture and herbal medicine doctor here in Anchorage. Dude!
Why didn't I do that a year ago?!?!?!?!
After just one accupunture treatment I felt markedly better. After the second I started to feel more like myself. And he gave me these bags of herbal tea to help cleanse my body and "equalize the energy levels in my system". This tea is not the kind you buy at the store. It ain't no raspberry & chamomile concoction. This stuff tastes like sucking dirt through a snail's butt.
But it works! Man do I feel good!
Look out world! I'm BAAACK! Sphere: Related Content
