Gus began investigating the Santos Family in Chicago and his
investigation led him to Springfield in 2001. When some files were
destroyed, Gus became partnered with Harley Cooper.
Originally just a man out to get revenge, Gus developed into a man with
a strong sense of family. He will stop at nothing, including breaking
the law, to protect those who are important to him. This was proven when
he covered up his sister Eden's involvement in a shooting.
Always fond of telling stories of how he grew up, and of his father, he
was shocked to learn that he was adopted. Gus found out that his
biological father was none other than Alan Spaulding. The two bonded

defended her in the murder trial of his brother, Phillip Spaulding, and
then fought for her to give them another chance. Eventually they
married. Things between them weren't been easy, even though they
still had a lot of love. Many things conspired to keep them
apart, the most important of which was Alan, who never liked Harley.
Their marriage was annulled, even though they both still loved each
Natalia but was also drawn to Olivia, who was dying of heart
disease. Gus was rushing to see Olivia before her death on his son
Rafe's motorcyle when he crashed. Gus died, so Olivia received his
heart. It took both women, as well as Harley, a long time to
get over his death. Eventually, Natalia and Olivia fell in
love. Harley left town later to help save Rafe, who was on the run.
She ended up staying in Greece.
