The lights are on
He's gone through hell, and come out the other side. Dominic Santiago steps into the spotlight in today's Gears of War 3 profile. Dom is the consummate wingman, having followed Marcus Fenix into the deepest holes and darkest places that the world of Sera has to offer. Along the way, he's been forced to face some dark moments, but none worse than the torture and death of his beloved wife, Maria. The months that have passed since then have been hard on the man, but he's no less willing to follow his friends into battle, in the hopes that he won't have to lose anyone else he loves. Click the image below to take a look at Santiago as we find him at the beginning of Gears of War 3.

Dom definetly has the best background story in my opinion. Poor guy.
and why dont they know his weight?
Beastly. Played through the whole campaign as him in GoW2. ^_^
dom looks badass man
Man... when Dom had to do his wife in, I was like "WTF???" and that is one reason I love the Gears-verse so damned much. Not only did it make you feel for the character, but it made you want to go out and kill the Locust for the memory in which he would be subjected to everyday.
Truly a moving part in the story. Dom is a bad mofo.
Just a question... Why is it apparently so difficult to update the hub page every time you guys throw up the next article? It's a little annoying to have to go searching for the new ones.
Why does dom look like my dad?
Maria tattoo is awesome.
Dom is pretty cool.
Dom!!! can't wait the play the campaign as dom one of the best characters in the game...
Dom definitely has the best character development out of all the Gears. He almost eclipses Marcus, imo.
Dom is the shyt!
dom look cool man cant not wait for the game
Wow they are really putting a story in this one.Looks great, i love the story in the other two but this one looks like they put a lot of time in it.Plus dom looks a lot cooler then the other two.P.S Double barrel shotgun nuff said.
i love the way that they say he euthanzied his wife, like he just gave her a shot, like a dog. i watched what happed, and here it is.spoiler alert, you have been warned.
as he held here in his arms, crying to her, "baby, no no no no no, this can't be happening!!!!" he, pulls out his side arm, holding her close to him, a blank stare upon her face, saying nothing. then, he says, "just close your eyes baby. your going to a better place," as he pulls the barrel up to her temple. "i love you so much. i really do." as he closes his eyes, he slowly pulls back the trigger.
that was how it went. among all of the epic (no pun intended), awe inspiring moments, it is this three minute scene that is, in my opinion, the best. that is what it meant by, "euthanized".
@Joseph114 only because that is all he knows, or he just wants revenge.
@Matt you say that like he isn't human, and he still cries. he dosen't just go, "oh hi honey" and shoots her. hey CRIES.
dom is so cool. plus, it was so sad with his wife! i hope he survives this last game
Whether it's fighting locust or struggling to forget terrible events of the past, you can count on Dom to pull through, i am scared though, it seems as if he is giving up. evidence to support this is the new trailer, he was ready to lay there and take the death sentence. I hope Dom makes it through this game.
Dom is awesome
Man he is kind of like fisher. He has lost everything, but the one major diffenrence is that he dosent really have a reason to keep going, he just does. Thats what makes him a great charecter.
