Gabbers grew up on Triaxus, got married to a mechanic named Bubbles, and raised a nest of kids ... but his work in corporate acquisitions for a red dragon's company didn't speak to his soul. He was good at it: a top negotiator, a closer, the guy who could come out ahead on any deal. Despite that, he always knew he was meant for greater things...
Then, on a lark, Bubbles convinced him to sign up for a talent contest ... and next thing he knew, he was doing stand-up comedy on a reality TV show broadcast throughout the Pact Worlds. He turned in his notice and dragged his wife to Absalom Station to follow his dreams of being a famous comedian.
To get material for jokes and colorful stories, pay his travel expenses, and keep himself from getting bored between gigs, he works with the Starfinder Society, having been recruited into the organization by First Seeker Luwazi Elsebo.

Tip of the Conspiracy
Gab focuses on support, trying to use Clever Attack on the biggest bad guys or Inspiring Boost to help allies as needed. If enemies are clustered, he's not above using a grenade, particularly stickybomb grenades if he can cause the enemies themselves to create choke points in the combat environment.
In ship combat, he generally serves as Captain. He leads off with a Bluff-based Taunt, trying to matter-of-factly convince the enemy they have no hope and it's best to just surrender now. In subsequent rounds, he will focus on using the Encourage skill on the biggest gunner, although he can also shift to other positions as needed.
