Gav Murphy was a 'games journalist' working for Iggun who was well known for his conflict with Simon Miller of the Miller Report, which ended up kickstarting the Journalism Wars when he received a powerful headset from the man himself.

Murphy fought as a fighter pilot in the 301st Legion, leading strikes on Gamespot around London, however he was thought to be killed by Miller when on a mission across Central London when Miller was able to plant a bomb on his plane in the first 'Operation Charles Martinet'.

However Murphy somehow managed to survive the attack and return to the gaming world, with his last appearance in the VGCU being his spot on the judging panel of Gamerbake alongside Yir Auld Da.
