History[edit | edit source]
The Reverend Gilbert served at Fort Bailey for some time.
In 1815, two sisters, named Ginger and Brigitte Fitzgerald find themselves lost one winter and are led to the fort by The Hunter. Gilbert tries to convince Wallace to cast them out but the sisters are allowed to stay, though Gilbert views them as harbingers of sin. During a fight with werewolves that infiltrated the fort, Gilbert leads Ginger and Brigitte to a seemingly safe house, inhabited by a werewolf. However, Gilbert betrays them and locks them in, telling them to "burn in hell".
After the men start to catch wind of Ginger's curse, Gilbert and James lead the others to find out if Ginger is infected, they abducted her from her bed and Gilbert personally holds the Doctor at gunpoint forcing him to test Ginger with a leech. Brigitte convinces Wallace to help rescue Ginger and after being intimidated by Wallace, Gilbert lets Ginger go.
When Brigitte returns to the fort, she is captured by Gilbert, who tries to get Brigitte to submit, saying that her sisters soul is already lost but Brigitte claims to have visions and dreams and one of them is of the Reverend screaming for his life, and spits in his eye. In a rage, Gilbert drags Brigitte to the parade square, calling a witch and builds a bonfire. As this is happening Ginger makes her way to the fort with a pack of werewolves following behind. Gilbert makes a final attempt to execute Brigitte, but Wallace and The Hunter catch wind of this and attack Gilbert, firing an arrow through his wrist, running him through with a cutlass and letting him on fire with a torch.
