Gesler was originally a captain under the Old Guard, then a sergeant, then a corporal in the Malazan Coastal Guard, later promoted back to captain in Deadhouse Gates[1]. He was one of the last members of the Boar Cult. He and Stormy had been friends since they were young[2].

In Deadhouse Gates Edit

Gesler was hired by Duiker during the Seven Cities rebellion (the Whirlwind) to pick up a fellow historian, Heboric Light Touch, from the Otataral Desert on a nearby island. Accompanying him were Stormy, Truth, and the mage Kulp. After rescuing the historian, he travelled briefly through a warren where he, Stormy, and Truth somehow began the process of becoming Ascendants.

In House of Chains Edit

He was sergeant of the 5th squad which included Stormy as corporal and Truth, Tavos Pond, Sands and Pella.

His, Borduke's and Strings' squads had competing desert scorpions on which they wagered. Gesler's squad named their In Out scorpion "Clawmaster".

In Dust of Dreams Edit

Gesler and his tent-mate Stormy were abducted from the Bonehunter army camp by the K'Chain Che'Malle and Gesler was installed as their Mortal Sword. With the help of Stormy as well as Sinn and Grub they defeat the K'Chain Nah'ruk.

In The Crippled GodEdit

Gesler and Stormy lead the K'Chain Che'Malle to join up with the Bonehunters.

Gesler was killed by Sister Reverence while rescuing the heart of the Crippled God.
