Gus (Doctor Who)
Real Name:
Search for 'Gus (Doctor Who)' on Amazon

Bio:
Gus was an American World War II pilot from Akron, Ohio. He accidentally became the Fifth Doctor's companion when the TARDIS landed in a backwater part of the Pacific Theatre. The Doctor's arrival, in fact, seemingly saved Gus' life from attack by a Japanese soldier. Gus therefore literally stumbled into the Doctor's life. He remained by the Doctor's side for the last half of the fifth incarnation's comic life.

Gus' story was no more poignant than when it came to an end. LIke several of the Doctor's companions in the past, Gus wanted to get home. At the conclusion of their final adventure together, Gus seemed to be on his way to getting his wish. The Doctor had landed in the same place and time where they'd first met (although one assumes just slightly afterwards). Gus announced his intentions to part ways with the Doctor—when the Moderator flew down from space and shot Gus incidental to an attack on the TARDIS. As he lay dying, he managed to unload a few rounds into the Moderator, which critically injured, but did not kill, his final adversary.

In other words, Gus died where and just about when he should have died, had not the Doctor arrived on the scene.
