I scheme up plans in my sleep. You couldn't possibly keep up. - Ghost taunting the player
Jean-Marie "Ghost" Gavel is a French EU general expected to appear in Generals 2. He specializes in reconnaissance tactics.
With his military service dating back to the formation of the unified EU State, General Jean-Marie "Ghost" Gavel is both a long-standing veteran of the EU military and one of the most respected recon and infiltration specialists on the planet - a deeply methodical man capable of masterminding the "invisible" infiltration of even the most secure compound, so focused that he can famously maintain absolute calm while under enemy fire. An incredibly private individual off the battlefield, Gavel's personal life remains a mystery to all but the highest ranking EU officials. Despite this lack of fraternization, his name and reputation carry significant weight throughout the ranks; as EU riflemen are heard to say: "you won't know that The Ghost has hit the battlefield until they start finding the bodies."
'Ghost' is a common moniker for special forces teams, especially in video games, for example Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, a multinational team of special forces experts, the Ghosts in Call of Duty: Ghosts, a union of US special forces, and the Ghosts, psionic specialists from the StarCraft series.
