"For the poor people of humanity I give my eternal gratitude. No generation has suffered the same as you, no generation has fought like you, and no generation has had the guts to do something about it quite like you." - Gillian Fox, excerpt from inaugural address
Gillian Fox is the 49th President of the United Earth Coalition
. He represents the Onward Forever Party, a populist organization. He holds an openly sour view of the Hawkians, seeing them as a large threat and obstacle to humanity's development and expansion. Fox reluctantly accepted Congress's decision to allow Hawkian tourists into human space, a controversial vote that won only by a slim margin.
Fox is well known for his uncompromising opinions, brute honesty, and rousing and long-winded speeches.
