Facts about G'Tole
1, G'Tole is the oldest son of Narn Ambassadors Na'Toth and Ta'Lon who met up and became mates in my sequel fanfic I haven't written yet >< G'Tole is the oldest of five children the two Narns have together while living on Minbar.
2, G'Tole was born as Tallum, but took the name G'Tole as an adult after studying the books of G'Kar. Having been raised to brood age in a multicultural society and taught the values of peace and diplomacy by his parents, he responded to G'Kar's calls of tolerance and understanding with great passion and renamed himself G'Tole when he chose G'Kar as his prophet. (The Tole portion is after his father who he also has great respect for)
3, Ta'Lon and Emperor Cotto have maintained a close friendship in the time after Babylon 5, and G'Tole has visited Centauri Prime often as a child which is where he met the princess Lonnah and causes all sorts of trouble on the royal grounds. Lonnah was older than him, and bossed him around a lot, but he thought she was super cool and nursed a secret crush on her through brood and into his military years.
4, G'Tole inherited the gentle loyalty of his father and the fierce duty of his mother, which naturally inclined him to becoming a soldier. He is specifically a ground-pounder but learned to fly fighters and man armaments in academy.
5, Thankfully G'Tole's time in the service was during a rare peace, so he didn't see a lot of weaponized action and has never been in an actual shooting war. As a result his career grew quickly boring, and because of his early exposure to languages including Centauri and interlac, he decided to specialize in cipher and translation and was chosen to return to the ISA headquarters on Minbar as part of a Narn military liason which is where he runs back into Lonnah.
6, G'Tole and Lonnah started dating soon after he transferred. G'Tole made the first move. It was halting at first, since Lonnah (being royalty) never considered dating out of the noble classes, let alone out of her species, but it's G'Tole's gentle side that won her over.
7, G'Tole is protective of Lonnah, but quietly the more sensitive of the two, and the scrutiny the two get weighs heavy on him in spite of the confidence he has in his feelings toward the princess. In these times of weakness he finds comfort in Lonnah's steel nerve and refusal to take shit from anyone age, rank, or race be damned.
8, G'Tole really wants to have a family and pass on the lessons he's learned to enrich his people. In Narn society (this is fanon) having children with your mate is a way to solidify a loving relationship, as well, and it hurts G'Tole that he and Lonnah will never experience that together.
That was fun! I gotta write that fanfic sometime.
I'll come back and tag people later.
