Gaston Martin is a character in Disco Elysium.

Background[edit | edit source]

A pétanque player, a lifelong arch-rival of René Arnoux, and a contrarian too, Gaston postures at being part of the union but in reality only has a small role. In their youth René went off to fight for Frissel the First while Gaston stayed behind, a large point of contention and resentment between the two men, the other being their shared on-and-off relationship with Jeanne-Marie, whose attention the men had been fighting for since they were children.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Gaston's primary role is to play foil to the René Arnoux, the opportunist to the fascist. Besides that, you can persuade him to part with his delicious sandwich, by completing a legendary Rhetoric check. The Giant Ham Sandwich is truly a thing to behold.
  • During your first encounter with René and Gaston, you have the chance to grab their pétanque boule and throw it (Red Hand-Eye Coordination Medium 10 check). Succeeding will cause them some grief - and also unlock the task to replace their lost boule.
  • If you talk to him after the tribunal he admits that he loved René despite them constantly being at each others throats and is deeply saddened by his death.
