Gaal, like many of Tim Curry’s characters is a villain. In this case his is a murderer who has been marooned on Earth 2 (aka Planet G889). The wonderful thing about Gaal is how archetypal a character he is. In Star Wars he could easily be a fallen or failed jedi, or even someone with just a hint of force ability. He’d work equally well in the Star Trek universe (outside of TNG anyway) pretty much as is. Classic Traveller? Easy. Alternity? Heck, that might work best of all! Just about anywhere you can put the PCs into a position where they’re stranded somewhere, Gaal can make an appearance.
There isn’t even any reason you couldn’t have Gaal show up in a D+D game. He’d work equally well somewhere deep in a megadungeon or on a desert island.
Force Touched Criminal
Equipment: Bone jewelry, ragged robes
Background: Gaal is known to have killed over two dozen sentients in cold blood. He is ultimately dedicated to one thing: his own survival. Beyond that nothing else matters to him. He will lie, cheat, steal, and sometimes even tell the truth if it'll save his own skin.
Personality: Slick, smooth, and utterly malicious. He will use his "magic" and trickery to ingratiate himself with anyone he thinks is either a danger or has something Gaal wants.
Objectives: Survival, and escape
Quote: "You must remember, little one, there's no such thing as right and wrong. Not here."
Connection with Characters: Gaal will use the characters any way he can.
