Gau was a seemingly feral man, discovered on Hermitage Island, who had been raised by local monsters. His life before this, if any, is unknown. He wore the pelt of a Demon Wolf on his head. Due to his upbringing, he tended to speak poorly and haltingly and focused on brute force as his solution to any and all problems.
After attacking the hero on Hermitage Island, Gau was defeated and impressed by his strength, agreed to join the Headquarters Ship. Although he had little understanding of the Island Liberation War and the reasons behind the fighting, he threw himself into battle after battle throughout the conflict. He would also form some sort of bond with Dario, with the two teaming up to unleash power attacks.
Following the war, he would head into the woods, continuing his wild rampage.
|Keen||You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.|
|Keen||Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?|
|Keen||Then, would you tell me what you think of the Hero?|
|Gau||Ugaaaa!! Ugaaaaaaaa!! Hero! Strong!!|
|Keen||Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.|
