"Gary" was the name Bill Keeler gave to the corpse of an unidentified human male discovered on the planet Ironheart. His was the only body found at the abandoned outpost on the planet, buried a short distance outside the perimeter. The cause of death was a projectile wound to the cranium. Because of the hot, dry, and sterile conditions of the planet, his corpse was preserved in a mummified state.
The crew of Pegasus became fascinated with ‘The Ironheart Man’ as he was more widely known. The examination ofhis preserved corpse was watched closely on the ship’s COM channels. The mystery of his death was never resolved. When these examinations were complete, many in the crew paid respect to his remains before they were returned to the planet. (Book 11: Charlemagne )
Gary was loosely based on Otzi the Iceman .
