Gaylord was born 65 years prior to the story. His family originated from Appaloosa Plains, where his father owned the Koffi Cafe.
He always loved his hometown, he used to ride horses a lot, and watched the local horse race whenever it happened. When he graduated high school, he left Appaloosa Plains and moved to Sunset Valley where there was more variety of job opportunities for him.
He adopted a child, named Gobias when he was nineteen. He loved his son so much. They always did everything together. However one day, in Central Park, he met a woman named Chelsea Burgundy. Since Chelsea was manipulative, she pretended to be an adult. She was very tall for her age and looked older, even if she was 14. She thought he was the hottest guy in the world, and couldn't resist WooHooing with him. After they dated for a few months, she learned that she had a teenage pregnancy with his baby.
She disliked children and was so angry that Gaylord had did this to her. She casually invited him to Crystal Springs for a "date" where she actually murdered him in the lake.
A few months after his death, Lynda was born. She always wondered how her dad was like, especially when her Chelsea went into hiding, all the guardian she had were her maternal grandparents. Gaylord sometimes roams the streets as a ghost, trying to find his daughter, however he never found her.
