* KnewItAllAlong: [[spoiler:He is the ''only'' one who knew about the Locust's existence before Emergence Day. E-Day won't happen if he can research how to cure Imulsion's Disease, except Admiral Prescott kidnapped him first and sent him to Azura, which caused him to have too little time.]]

->''"Do you know what it's like to lose everything? Everything you've ever loved? Everything you've ever known? Do you know what it's like to lose everything? I hope you never find out. Life's been hell since E-Day. A bloodbath every day! The Locust, we called 'em, and damn if that wasn't a perfect name for the bastards. They come from everywhere, in swarms, just like insects. And worst of all they've got the compassion to match. They kill indiscriminately, without remorse-- and we don't even know why they do it. Fourteen years and we still have no fucking clue where they come from or why they hate us. We just know they're our enemy... and we would be extinct if we don't put these fuckers back in the ground. Do you know what it's like to get back everything you thought you lost? Everything you lived for? Everything you love? I hope one day I find out."''

Dom is Marcus' best friend. He was trained as a commando in Hoffman's unit before transferring to the infantry. He lost his brother Carlos during the Pendulum Wars, his parents and two children on Emergence Day, and his wife Maria disappeared several years later after falling into severe depression from losing her family. When Marcus got sent to jail for abandoning his post to save his father, Dom was one of the few peopled who defended him. As the war with the Locust Horde continues, Dom still remains somewhat cheerful and caring throughout the conflict, eventually breaking Marcus out of jail to assist in a major push against the Locust. At the same time, he continues to search for Maria whenever possible. [[spoiler: When he found her lobotomized beyond recognition in the Locust Hollow, Dom was forced to [[MercyKill euthanise her]]]].

* DisappearedDad: Her father is never mentioned.
* GadgeteerGenius: As an engineer, she knows how to make machines work.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: More like dreaming of the past, but Gears 5 has her suffering nightmares that are more like messages about the Locust and Swarm.
* PromotedToPlayable: She was playable in ''4'' through co-op, but she will be the first female character to be the main PlayerCharacter, debuting in the role for ''Gears 5''.
* ItsPersonal: Has a big grudge against the swarm to the kidnapping of her mother, and especially the Speaker.
* ProperlyParanoid: Mistrusts her teammates in Gears 5, because they think she could turn on them.
* LukeIAmYourFather: Inverted. She is revealed to be the granddaughter of Queen Myrrah.

** LikeFatherUnlikeSon: Having actually grown up during an era of peace, JD is optimistic and personable, a sharp contrast to his jaded and gruff father. However, this goes right back to his father's personality in Gears 5, and is arguably even worse, wheras Marcus always gave the squad time to grieve, JD is adamant that she could have her moment on the Raven.

However, this goes right back to his father's personality in Gears 5, and is [[TookALevelInJerkass arguably even worse, wheras worse]], whereas Marcus always gave the squad time to grieve, JD is adamant that she a weeping Kait could have her moment on the Raven.

Added DiffLines:

* SupportingProtagonist: Even though he is the PlayerCharacter for ''4'', the game is really about rescuing Kait’s mother and trying to understand what The Swarm want with everyone, with JD just assisting with the matters while being along for the ride. Taken UpToEleven in ''5'', where he isn’t even the PlayerCharacter anymore while Kait takes the helm from him.

Added DiffLines:

** [[Characters/GearsOfWarSwarm The Swarm]]


* CharacterDevelopment: In Gears 4, he reconnects with his son and bonds with the other members of the party.



* PapaWolf: His response to Jinn ordering him to hand over his son is to take a Lancer chainsaw to the DeeBee she's controlling.

to:

* PapaWolf: His response to Jinn ordering him to hand over his son is to take a Lancer chainsaw to the DeeBee she's controlling. He also screams in panic when a Swarm controlled Deebee begins to choke James.



* SurrogateParent: Takes on a role of father figure to Kait, helping her get over her mother's death and also trying to help her with her identity crisis.



* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: The second Kait asks for help to deal with her identity crisis, he inmediatly volunteers, and only backs out because his absence will be noticed.



* BaldOfAwesome: He is completely bald in Gears 5.
* BadassBeard: Is developing a beard in Gears 5.
* CoveredInScars: He has an obviously serious arm injury, and he has a long scar down his right eye and cheek.



** LikeFatherUnlikeSon: Having actually grown up during an era of peace, JD is optimistic and personable, a sharp contrast to his jaded and gruff father.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Definetly with Kait in Gears 4 to the point Marcus notes it. However, in Gears 5 the ship promptly sinks due to his mistrust of Kait because of her Locust necklace.

Added DiffLines:

->''"If we don’t stop these things, everyone within a thousand miles dies."''


Added DiffLines:

* ProperlyParanoid: The ''Gears 5'' trailer shows his personality has taken a dive and he now exhibits this behavior towards Kait after learning that her necklace bears the Locust Horde’s symbol.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In contrast to his idealistic and compassionate personality in ''4'', the ''Gears 5'' trailer shows him as an abrasive, demanding and inconsiderate jerk towards his squad, particularly Kait, who he wouldn’t even let grieve over a fallen character saying “she’ll get her minute on the Raven”. His returning to the COG and discovery of Kait’s connection to the Locust is probably to blame.
