Holland Novak is the leader of Gekkostate, captain of the Gekko and pilot of the LFO Terminus typeR909. In person, Holland is not always as cool and composed as the photos in ray=out magazine might suggest — he frequently loses his temper when a situation turns bad, or when faced with insubordination. He has thrown Renton in the brig for using Nirvash without permission, and has beaten Renton for particularly vexing transgressions. His concern over Eureka's depression motivates him to show illogical animosity towards Renton. His relationship with Talho keeps him from getting too wild, but at times their own relationship suffers whenever he's angry. Holland truly loves Talho, but does not know how to react, especially to her fears that his absolute commitment to protecting Eureka means that he favors Eureka over Talho. Holland also suffers from the memories of his bloody past actions, and in reaction to these sometimes lashes out violently.
