Gara Singh is the director at the Global Defense Department (GDD). He is Jordan Duram's and Youngblood's supervisor. ("Reins of a Waterfall")

Graystone Investigation[]

Duram and Youngblood are discussing Amanda Graystone's announcement that her daughter Zoe was the MAGLEV bombing terrorist. Singh walks in with a tape labeled, "Benjamin Starke", which shows Youngblood interviewing Ben Stark after a curfew violation a year earlier (Aprilus 9, 41YR). Singh is upset they let a terrorist walk free, or at the very least, did not destroy the tape. He tells them to be "better." Duram considers searching areas previously off-limits due to "red tape." His first step is to contact the Caprican Tribune. ("Rebirth") ("Reins of a Waterfall")

103 Gara Singh Angry

Singh is angry with Agent Youngblood

Later, Singh, Duram and Youngblood watch the financial news program "Cubits & Pieces" in which news anchor Delice Jackson reveals that bureaucratic red tape is holding up the search of the Graystone residence. Singh comments on it being good publicity and Duram gives his partner the credit, helping restore her credibility after her earlier mistake. Duram asks about the availability of the warrants. Singh advises him that they will be available tomorrow. ("Reins of a Waterfall")

When a holo cafe is bombed early in the morning on Junius 17, 42YR, Singh and Duram discuss the possible causes. Duram believes it is a scare tactic perpetrated by the STO. Singh is less convinced, believing it was someone with a grudge against the owner or a copycat bombing.

Duram then informs Singh that he has obtained a search warrant for the lockers of the Athena Academy and Zoe Graystone’s residence. The search warrant permits access to Zoe's locker and any other lockers she might have used. Singh cautions him to “keep it tasteful,” as Duram plans to bring reporters with him. ("Gravedancing")

Willow Investigation[]

After Duram and Youngblood investigate Pann's murder, Singh meets with Duram. He tells Jordan that he is mistaken in his belief that Clarice Willow can be an Athenian cleric and keep up a secret Monotheist life in the STO. He thinks Jordan should back off from his search for links between Clarice and the Soldiers of the One. Furthermore, Singh says Youngblood agrees with him. He tells Duram that his strong Polytheist beliefs are clouding his judgment. ("Retribution")

The Sting[]

Suspecting Singh is STO, Duram feeds false information to his boss that Mar-Beth Willow is his confidential informant in his investigation of the Willow family's connections to the Soldiers of the One and the MAGLEV bombing. Singh puts on a holoband. Clarice is enraged when she receives this information. When Mar-Beth is taking her baby for a walk in the park, Clarice stabs and kills her. Olaf and another Willow husband take Mar-Beth's body away. ("Blowback")

Singh strikes back by framing Duram for blackmail. Singh fires him and demands Duram's badge and revolver. ("The Dirteaters")


He is later revealed to be Olaf Willow's anonymous informant in the GDD. He is also Alvo, Clarice Willow's anonymous STO contact in the Virtual World. ("Apotheosis")
