Curriculum Vitae

10 BBY born on Tatooine (note: he was 16 when he joined RS 6.5 ABY)

6.5 ABY becomes a member of Rogue Squadron (note: in the NEGtC it is said that he didn't attend the academy, so I suppose he started his career in the New Republic military when he joined Rogue Squadron (especially considering his young age))

ca. 7 ABY is a member of the team that plays a crucial part in the conquest of Coruscant; he meets Asyr Sei'lar (who is determined to execute him)

ca. 9.5 ABY Gavin and Asyr plan to marry and to adopt children; unknown to Gavin, their plans are foiled by Borsk Fey'lya; Asyr is severly injured in the battle of Distna (Corvis Minor); Gavin believes she is dead; she survives, but decides to leave without telling him that she's alive because she knows that the future they dreamed of can't come true

ca. 10 ABY adopts two orphaned boys who live near the RS HQs on Coruscant; he meets the social worker Sera Faleur (note: a sister or relative of Reina Faleur who dates Wedge in "Mandatory Retirement", I guess) and falls in love with her
