Garret's bust, by DCL

|Relatives||Garth (Father), Gwyneth (Sister)|
Garret is Garth's son and Gwyn's twin brother. He's the older of the two by about five minutes, and takes after his mother physically and psychologically as opposed to Gwyn, who takes after Garth. He's rescued in the Dog Days questline, which is triggered three days into the game; after this, he may be encountered in the Frost Hound from 0700-0900 and 1900-2100 hours every day.
Garret is as he's always been. You can see why he says he takes after his mother far more than he does Garth — instead of his father and sister's sleek brown-and-white fur patterning, Garret is more a greyish-black and far huskier. Either way, the young lupine is a stropping specimen of manhood. Broad-shouldered and strong-jawed, Garret looks considerably less tame than his father — for example, those teeth sticking haphazardly out of the sides of his muzzle definitely didn't come from Garth's side of the family, that's for sure. It gives one pause as to what Garth's wife might have looked like, and from there, what he saw in her...
Those sky-blue eyes, though — those definitely came from Garth, as does the cut of his muzzle. The family resemblance is there; it's just not as strong as that of Gwyn's. Garret's eyes tend to narrow, his perky, triangular ears tend to swivel this way and that when he's thinking, and when his jaws are idle, they tend to settle into a repetitive chewing motion that — no pun intended — sets one's teeth on edge after a while. He's monstrously tall for a lupine, almost seven feet, and might have been even more imposing if his fluffy fur didn't conspire to conceal his musculature that much. At it stands, though, there's definitely a sense of bulk, if not muscle, to Garret, which isn't surprising considering how much he tends to eat; it must cost Garth quite a bit to feed his idiot son.
Despite the chill of the Frost Marches, all Garret wears for a top is a sleeveless leather vest in browns and greys, trusting in his fur to keep him warm. The aforementioned garment is open in the middle, showing his bare chest and belly, as well as the lighter fluff growing from it. There's also a huge scar running from his upper left breastbone all the way to his right hip; while the scar itself isn't readily visible, the fur growing from it is discolored, resulting in an ugly gash of light grey across Garret's torso. The rest of Garret's fur is generally clean — generally being the key word here — but he always manages to look slightly unkempt and dishevelled no matter the time of day.
As for the rest of him... he wears leggings, held up by a belt, furred boots, and a pair of fingerless padded gloves. What you can see of the leathery pads of his hands, though, is thickly callused — Garret is clearly no stranger to hard, menial work, which is what you might expect of a tavernkeeper's son. A potential rival, perhaps, but also a potential ally. Either way, a force to be reckoned with and to keep an eye on.
History/Personality/Information of Note
Garret is reputedly much like his mother was; big, brash and with an unshakable sense of irrational self-confidence. He isn't outright stupid, but the thrill he gets from facing overwhelming odds, belief that everything will turn out right in the end and conviction of his complete indestructibility combine to ensure that he may as well be an idiot. Constantly touting himself as "the strongest man in all of Savarra", Garret's path through the fields of life appears to be one destined for broken fences, trampled flowers and smashed boulders.
Garth's wife was exiled from Hawkethorne when Gwyn and Garret were very young, supposedly after something horrible that she did that was nevertheless necessary. No one in town will speak of it, even though they admit that what she did was the only thing that could have been done. Gwyn doesn't remember her mother's face, but Garret does, and he hopes to find her some day and make her explain herself.
Garret is good friends with Brint, and they're often seen together in the Frost Hound when Brint is not in the player's party.
Garret is only available from [07:00 - 09:00] and [19:00 - 21:00]
- Challenge ([19:00 - 21:00] only)
- The player may challenge Garret to a drinking contest each evening. Victory is dependent upon one's toughness. There is no particular reward for winning save personal satisfaction, but losing means the player will have to pay for the cost of the drinks. The player may optionally throw the fight, but that won't fool Garret.
- Sex ([19:00 - 21:00] only)
- Daily Grind
If PC is male (physically), when propositioned for sex, Garrett will turn you down, saying he doesn't swing that way. If PC is female or hermaphroditic, he'll pick them up and carry them to his room.
- Spitroast (with Brint)
- Drunken Romp (lose to Garret in a drinking contest, then choose to not reject his advances)
Being Garret's Bitch
Garret has some sadomasochistic and degradation content; however, this needs to be consensual. In order to be Garret's bitch, the player must:
- Be lupine
- Not identify as female
- Have high femininity (> 50)
- Not identify as male
If all four requirements are met, the player will be given the option to beg to be Garret's bitch during sex; upon further confirmation, Garret will confirm the player's status as his bitch through some rather violent means.
Being Garret's bitch changes some of his usual content and his normally accessible sex scenes. The following scenes are also unlocked:
- Choke Out
If the player wishes to back out from being Garret's bitch, they simply need to transform themselves away such that they don't meet the requirements any more; Garret will react to that the next time they come up to him and will thank them for the good time anyway.
Garret can get the player pregnant if the player engages in sex with him where he cums into the player. If the player returns to him about 25% or more through the pregnancy, there'll be a small scene where he frets over how Garth is going to kill him for knocking someone up. He's been on contraception for the whole time he's been fooling around with the player, but evidently it didn't take — he's just that awesome, only this time it worked against him...
- The original inspiration for Garret came from Lufia 2's Dekar and Left 4 Dead's Francis.
- Garret was originally pitched as a companion; he would have perks that would grant him innate lifesteal and increase his damage the more wounded he was. He was eventually passed over in favour of making Kiyoko a companion in his stead.
