Gerard is an incarcerated former enforcer for the Barksdale Organization.


Season 3

Gerard was an idiotic Barksdale organization enforcer working under Slim Charles, though marginally more intelligent than Sapper, who he usually works with. He is first seen guarding the front door during one of Omar Little's attempted heists. Later, Gerard, Sapper and Dennis "Cutty" Wise are charged with finding a thief in the Barksdale organization. Cutty's experience makes the task simple, and Gerard and Sapper punish the culprit with a savage beating. Gerard and Sapper are thrown out of Avon Barksdale's homecoming party when Barksdale saw them come in high. Gerard receives more work as the organization becomes embroiled in a turf war with Marlo Stanfield. He is almost killed in an attempted drive by where both Chipper and Country are killed, when Chipper, the driver, impatiently sets off early. Gerard and Sapper are later involved in the attempted shooting of Omar in violation of the Sunday truce when he was escorting his grandmother to church. They are ordered by Avon Barksdale to replace a Omar's grandmother's hat that was damaged in this unsanctioned action. Gerard is later arrested at a Barksdale safehouse for weapons violations.
