Gourry is great, he absolutely cracks me up. Gourry is
introduced into the Slayers TV series in the beginning. He's a traveling
mercenary who happens to wander by and save a toothpick little girl
(his words, not mine) named Lina Inverse. When she wants to know if
he'd be her bodyguard, he took it a step farther and called himself
her protector, her guardian. He continued to call her Little Girl for
awhile, good thing Lina could handle that. Gourry doesn't have any magic
abilities, his best attribute is his swordfighting. Rumor has it that
he ran away from home with the Sword of Light.
After the gang defeated Shabrinigdo, Lina and Gourry kept hanging out
together, and it ended up being a "Wherever you see Lina, Gourry
is nearby". I think Gourry just couldn't think of anything else to
do, so he decided to keep hanging out with her. I mean, come on, he is
a swordsman, and hanging out with Lina does guarantee you to see lots
What? Not our beloved Gourry! Ohhh yes indeedy, Gourry makes a pretty
girl! The name Lina and Amelia gave him is La-La, and he certainly did
get the eye of "The Might Balloon" once. *snickers* Take a look
at these camera ninja'd photo's of him!
Some people cast a spell of forgetfulness, well, in Gourry's case you
really don't need it. 2 days after meeting him, Gourry called Zelgadis
Zagildos, and Shabrinigdo Shabradingo. Least he got the Shab part right.
Actually, Gourry forgot who Shabrinigdo and Rezo were by the time the
Next series rolled around. Lina continually calls him jellyfish brains,
and hey, don't ya know it, he likes dressing up like one. Gourry really
is forgetful, he forgot who Sylpheel was, and she even fell in love with
him. The only reason he remembered her even a little is because she cooked
for him. ^_^
