Dr. Gears is one of the research heads of The Foundation. Nobody seems to remember how, when or why Gears joined The Foundation, and inquires seem to slam in to [ACCESS DENIED] or "You're not authorized." walls rather quickly. The doctor himself rarely comments on non-Foundation topics, and never on anything he may have done or been before joining.

Dr. Gears lacks any form of emotional response. That is to say, he is capable of feeling joy, sadness and the like, but is incapable of expressing or acting on these emotions in any way. This makes him a unfeeling, heartless monster to some, but qualifies him as one of the best Foundation researchers to 05 command. Those who work with him usually just tell themselves he's a robot, and move on.

The good doctor is not a combat force in any way, however he has very extensive knowledge and insight in to both SCP items and the general workings of The Foundation. When involved in a emergency, he's more likely to be found in his office feeding dispatches to field teams and processing information then out in the field.

When he is dispatched in the field, it's often as a supervisor or to develop temporary containment strategies for uncontained SCP items. Armed with a SCP-172-designed pistol, he's able to defend himself tolerably well, but typically he's not in a position where it's necessary, and is more likely to find a secure location and call for back-up when things get hairy.
