Tactics: Gester is a highly skilled Assassin/Bounty Hunter/Trouble Shooter that anyone without scruples would hire to take out an "annoying thorn" in their side. He has absolutly no qualms about using innocents to acheive his goals! Common tactics include: Sending Dominated "Meat-Shields" to attack his target while he remains far away and dropping Song of Discord into a crowded street/room/whatever containing his target and watching, Invisibly, while the commoners tear his target and themselves to pieces! He is Utterly EVIL!!!! ;
