Major Furlong was an officer in an unspecified service stationed in the southernmost city on Amargosa, Susskind. On the first full day of the Gelt Incursion, Furlong began broadcasting what information he had available.
He expressed skepticism when two probes delivered holographic messages after the population sought shelter in surrounding caves. The first, from Admiral Burke, announced the imminent Liberation of Amargosa. The second, from Lattus Tishla, announced the order for Gelt troops to stand down.
