Colonel Gabhart was the leader of an expedition from Shadow Earth to Deathlands; after Ryan escaped back through the portal and informed them that they were being set up, he and the others decided to send the rocket they'd planned to fire into space back through the portal instead, destroying much of the Shadow Earth Totality Concept complex and (they thought) permanently sealing the gate (Shadow World).

Dredda Otis Trask, another Shadow Worlder, took over the development of the trans-world technology and (eventually) led a new group through the dimensional portal to Deathlands. Two of Gabhart's comrades were killed, and he and Nara Jurascik were captured and forced to work in the mines at Slake City; he died of radiation sickness after meeting the companions once more (Breakthrough).
