Ask for the cavalry and they send a city girl... Alone!
Gary Douglas is an elderly man dressed in cowboy clothes who runs a auto-shop in the middle of the desert. An intimidating man in his own right, he's a little untrusting of everyone he comes across but eventually accepts Aya Brea as a decent person.
Gary seems to be used to the creatures attacking people in the area; he escapes them every time and always has his trusty shotgun in hand in case anything happens.
During the boss fight in his hotel, if Aya manages to save Flint, his dog, he gives her a new gun and respects her while forming his version of a friendship with her. If Aya doesn't manage to save his dog, he leads her to the Chicken Plate. After the boss battle, Gary sells Aya weapons and is promised to get real money for helping her from the organization.
If the good ending is obtained, it's revealed that Douglas was wounded in the Dryfield explosion, but eventually recovered and began an effort to rebuild the town.
