Height: 2 meters (6.5 feet)
Weight: 165 pounds
Build and Skin Colour: Thin and Lean: Prv. Gisgard still remains in pretty great shape even after his old racing days, even though his parents thoroughly discouraged him from even picking up a bike again after his wreck.
Facial Features and Eye Colour: He has a sharp chiseled face, quite reminding you of the old pictures of German propaganda. Given the right atmosphere, Gisgard looks like he could be quite demanding…now only if he acted like that.
Hair Colour and Style: Short blonde, slightly spiked up front
Distinguishing Features: His airbike accident left the private with a couple of scars, but the worst part came from when the bike pinned his left arm. With it severed, the doctors replaced everything below his shoulder with a bionic limb…It's been 2 years but he still hasn't quite made it as fast as his own.
Personality: “The report says he looks like he could rip those other recruits to pieces,” said Lt. Janus from the other side of her desk, looking at her two subordinates with more than a little concern. “So why is he such a wimp?”
Gisgard can ace nearly any assignment in front of him, but in physical altercations, he lacks quite a bit of “experience”…and his rich family didn't help matters much.
Likes: Parties, esp. the ones his father put together
Dislikes: None yet
Goals: To follow in his father's footsteps, a diplomatic representative…maybe even more!!
Parents: Sir. Arthur Gisgard (Planetary House Chairman)
Mrs. Lydia Gisgard (Housewife)
Albert was the brightest star in Sir. Arthur Gisgard's eye, though he never let the boy see it. Not that he got many chances to see his son, but when he did, he left some great lasting impressions. Sir. Gisgard was way to busy to have a child, but he wasn't about to let it show when he was able to visit his son.
Lydia raised her son, there was no doubt about that. He was kind, generous, and deeply ambitious to a fault…to bad she never could act on her's, but she knows he will…and by god he will be great at it.
At thirteen, Albert couldn't wait to drive, he got an airbike as a present from his father…and took off. They couldn't find him for a good week. After that, Albert was told he needed a little discipline and was sent for karate lessons. He soon found out those two thing went hand-in-hand. his training gave him sharper reflexes and when he turned Seventeen, that accident could have been a hundred times worse.
He quickly recovered and regained about 90% mobility in his left “Bionic” arm, but his parents had enough. They suspended him from any of the things he used to do, and being a spiteful teenager, he joined the Marines.

Having been raised much of his life by Tutors and Diplomats, Gisgard found it very hard not to notice the intricacies of both foreign/domestic relations. He also found it very easy to sneak into his father's things and sneak quite a few good looks at law books and new bills being introduced to the Senate. Although, Ethan wasn't about to let his father know that he was interested in those boring topics, nor was Ethan's father going to tell him as he slowly closed the door he used to peek on his son
Twelve years of private schooling leaves most people yearning for life on the outside, Gisgard was no exception to this basic fact of life, but he did learn. Gisgard was brought up to date on all the current events, past philosophies, and everything in between (though he did find one class “Aethersperm: Are the gods calling the apocalypse” amusing and very informative.) He agrees with most of the new rulings of the government, especially against slave trade.
