Gaskell was the jealous and suspicious boyfriend of Jewel Bottombiter. He hired K'Riegert to follow Jewel just prior to her actually cheating on him for the first time, with Miles O'Keeffe. He may have had some Jedi powers, as he knew just in time to spy on her. He did not, however, know K'Riegert would turn on him when Cup decided to forgive Jewel. K'Riegert killed Gaskell, and attempted to kill Bottombiter as well, but was stopped by O'Keeffe.
