"Of course I would want my son to follow in my footsteps. Nothing would make me more proud. Answering the call to service is a noble endeavor."
―TK329, regarding Gareth[src]

Gareth[3] was a Human[2] male, the son of the Imperial stormtrooper TK329 and his wife, Mera.[3] TK329 wanted Gareth to join the Stormtrooper Corps when he grew up, and he believed that his wife and son supported him and his mission. Shortly before his death[1] aboard the Imperial Star Destroyer Vector[3] after being exposed to the Blackwing virus[4] in 1 BBY,[5] TK329 broadcast an open transmission telling Gareth to take care of Mera in his absence. The stormtrooper also mentioned that he was planning a big party for his next visit home and the he had purchased something special for Gareth.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Gareth was mentioned in five tweets from TK329's in-universe Twitter account. The account was created in 2009[1] as a tie-in to the then-upcoming novel Death Troopers, written by Joe Schreiber.[4]
